. I bought a brand new carb from Redline that has the stamp of "DGAV" on it. But it's clearly an electric choke model, and thus really should be stamped "DGEV".
is it possible that the "new" carb from redline was actually a reman and they put an electric choke on it? it wouldn't make sense that the stamps mean nothing.

Besides that I doubt redline is interested in remaning a cheap peice of aluminium when they can just press out another one. The time and work involved in measureing and re-bushing all the little passages and throttle bore's and such is too expensive. It's easier to buy scrap aluminium and just make new castings.

There is no Weber stamped 32/36 DGEV. All electric choke Webers started life as a water choke. They were converted somewhere down the line.
I will post my other report in the next window.

Ok, for all you guys that hunt JY's. If you are going to look for a Weber Carb, this is what you should look for. First I will mark the cars and trucks, and then the model of carbs. I will be pleased to tell you if the carb is worthwhile if you find something else. I have the repair kits available.
Datsun/Nissan - carbureted trucks and cars pre 1986 L, Z, A, E series engines
Toyota - Corolla pre 87, Celica-pre 81, Land Cruiser 80's and earlier, Pickups pre-88
Mazda - B2600, B2200 trucks. Most cars had people that didnt care about performance other than rotaries
Suzuki - 1300 Samurai
Mitsubishi/Dodge D50 - carbureted pickups, Raiders, Colt front drives
BMW - 2002 with 2 barrel manifolds (best place to find Webers)
Opel - Opel GT
Volvo-non fuel injection cars (144, 122)
Jeep-CJ, Wrangler with 258 motor
Ford - Old Cortina mark 1 (1967?)
Carbs to use
32/36 DGV (manual choke), 32/36 DGAV (auto choke), 32 DGAV, 32 DGV
38 DGAS Maximum performance, mileage will be lower
36 DCD, 28/36 DCD
Holley 5200/Weber 32/36 DFAV - linkage reversed to DGV series, most Holleys have linkage that is not bolted on and some have non changeable idle jets, throttle shafts wear easy
Fiat Webers, DMSA series harder to get parts, linkage reversed, 1800 carbs will not fit adaptor
Renault Webers DIR series- same as Fiat
If you are handy, and have access to parts, the Renault and Fiat carbs will work OK

Besides, since my throttle cable is no longer ghetto rigged I can now lay on it fully without fear of breaking it (had to go gentle at last rallycross)
Now its foot to the floor!

Holley 5200 (Motorcraft as well) with thread on linkage and changeable idle jets.
Be careful, there are some Chevettes with a miniature Holley 5200 that has barrels just big enough for your pinkie.

I'm looking to buy one (new) and I'm not sure which one to get, and where to get it from...
