Balancing (carburettors)


Ensuring that the carburettors in a multi-carburettor system operate in unison. The throttle linkage has to be synchronized in addition to tuning by instruments. The still-popular method of gauging synchronization by listening to the hiss of air induction is subject to human error, and a visual instrument is acknowledged to be a positive method of balancing. An alternative is electronic tuning or the use of a vacuum (manifold depression) gauge.
