Greatest quadrajet book ever printed (and I've read all of them). Jan 18, 2008
There is no finer or more informative book in print. This book has every important piece of information you need to know about the quadrajet. There are many other good books, this is the best book!!!!
Good coverage of the late model electronic Quadrajets Oct 17, 2007
Since I have a recent Quadrajet, 1986 with electronic controls, I needed to be able to rebuild my carburator without screwing it up. The performance modifications section wasn't of great value to me. The authors coverage of the APT was a bit superficial. He chose to advise the reader to count the number of turns to remove it, when in reality you need to count the number of turns til it bottoms out, then you know where to set it upon re-assembly. His advise was not to mess with it but put it back to the factory setting, assuming it was at the factory setting to begin with. Since I knew my carb was running rich to begin with, I leaned out the APT from where it was when I removed it and the authors APT test worked as described. My motor now runs nice and smooth.
Overall this was a very good book. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to understand how the Quadrajet works before taking one apart.

a must when rebuilding the quadrajet Sep 19, 2007
This book is a must when modifying or rebuilding your quadrajet. I have a 1969 q-jet and this book gave me the bravery to dig into my carb. I came out with flying colors as my car now runs like a top. Ruggles knows his stuff, and would love to meet the man someday!! They should call him "Quadman"
If you're going to work on a Q-jet: get it - Mar 19, 2007
Overall, this book is an excellent supplement to Roe's book on Q-jets. The book should have been edited better for those who actually work on their carburetor (I would give 3 stars for editing, but entered 5 for content). The technical information I needed to make modifications to my carbs was there, however, usually in at least two or more places in the book. This is only a little irritating compared to not finding the info at all. I ended up making a spreadsheet from the info scattered throughout the book for a particular application so that I could have a one page reference. Flipping through the book while trying to work proves too slow. If you're going to actually work on a Q-jet, particularly to get better performance, or use on an engine swap or modified engine, you should consider this book a must have supplement to Roe.
