Thread: Throttle shaft sloppy and end float 0-80688.

    Default Throttle shaft sloppy and end float 0-80688.

    Hello, I have had a customer return one of these because the throttle shafts have movement. Having a look I can wiggle the shafts (all of them) up & down in the carb body when the throttle is closed. Now also when the throttle is open, there's some end float roughly 5/64". I grabbed another one off the shelf and it also had some movement, but not as much. Are the throttle shafts meant to "float" so to speak? Is this normal for this model?

    Judging by the response, we only have trouble with these in OZ. Gateway to the rejects.

    I have 12 brand new Edelbrock carbs in front of me. No real movement to speak of.
