Hey all, this may be a dumb question but I was wondering what the difference between a Weber 32/36 DGAV 5A & a Weber 32/36 DGAV 33b1 ?

Is the 33b1 a compatible model with the EA81? and is It possible to change a water choke to an electric choke with ease?

Thanks

That is a good question.
I don`t really know the answer.
I know the chokes are easy to swap around.I`d go w/the water choke.

Are you sure that is a DGAV 5A and not a DGV 5A?
All the 5As I saw were DGV manual choke versions.
All the 33b1s were DGAV water chokes.

Somebody said 5As were earlier than 33b1s.

If they are anything like the Weber DCOE series,the different dash numbers indicate different size and positioning of the transisition ports above the closed throttle plate.

Either carb will be OK.

5A is a manual choke in my experience. Should be a DGV not a DGAV though I've seen DGAV stamped on DGEV's that were electric not water heated choke.

Agreed - either one should work fine.
