Would the weber 38 work good in a swap? The vehicle isnt used alot just mud races, and gets drove on weekends. Its 1980 brat. Would it kill fuel milage completely

I talked to redline they don't make adapters. Not too hard to make the adapter, people with 2.7l jeeps complain about them bogging their engines on steep trails. It'd be an experiment because I was wanting one for my 1.8 ohv ea82.

I talked to the guys at weber and they said they discontinued making weber conversion kits for the L series wagons. Dude it talked to was obviously wanting to get me off the phone. But that's just what I heard. But yes different base from stock as it needs to mount to the intake manifold and the carbs are universal. I've heard you can make them easily enough.

Best choice might be a 28/36 DCD.  Over carburation will hurt you a lot more than under...

The Synchronous 38/38 DGAS Weber ... take a look at the Linkage between both Stages, behind the acceleration plate: If Both Butterflies moves at the same time, all the time the Throttle position moves, it is a 38/38 DGAS (or bigger numbered, like the 48, etc...)But if one stage opens after the other have reached already half way open, then it is a Progressive Weber, such like the popular 32/36 DEGV.

 

The Synchronous Webers, such like the 38/38 DGAS are more used to Racing purposes due to the Higher Fuel usage (Both Huge Jets opens at the Same Time), and thus means that if you use a Car with such kind of carb as daily driver, it will be a Gas guzzler, compared to the Progressive Webers, like the 32/36 where you commute with only one stage (with Small Jetting), usually; and the High stage (with Bigger Jetting) is used during deep acceleration only.

 

If the 38/38 DGAS has the Same Base than the 32/36 DEGV (And I'm almost sure that is the Case) you can use a Redline adapter plate to put it on the Subaru's intake manifold.

 

Kind Regards.

Would the 38 get WORSE fuel milage then the stock hitachi. Mine just wont idle snd randomly idles high. Its not a daily driver more like weekend trail cruiser. Would i notice more power with the 38 or not good for my setup

If the Hitachi Carb is bad and you put a 38/38 Weber, well tuned for your Subaru's engine, obviously yes, you'll notice a Huge improvement and an increased gas consumption, but how much increase it will depend on how floored you trend to drive.

 

Nothing can beat a Good Ol' Boxer Rumble Sound thru a Full Throttle weber carb ... :D ...

 

Kind Regards.

Gloyale told me it'd only use more gas without any power gain. You need to increase your compression I.e. Headers cam made sense to me at least
