Which Weber carb best for EA81

I had the Carter Weber on my engine and was set on changing over to the Hitachi. I found a used intake for $40 and bought a remanufactured Hitachi for $175. I went to a manual choke.
I plan on switching over to the after market Weber, which comes with the adapter. Only thing holding me back is the price... I've been quoted $380 for the Weber..

Mudboat - Why were you quotes so much? Find a list of cars that had them, get the carb from the junkyard and rebuild it. Webers are very easy to rebuild.
By the way -
DGV - manual choke
DGEV - electric choke
Other than that, I don't know what the letters stand for.
pick your poison - they each have their advantages but I would not stick with the Carter Weber because it is way too small for the engine.

it's the size of the barrels. primary=32mm, secondary=36mm. stock hitachi's are 28/30 i believe. the adapters from redline cast $50.
And what does 32/36 refer to?

The numbers designate the size of the barrel. 32 pri/36mm secondary. In reality, in the weber 32/36, the venturi's are 26/27mm respectively.
DGEV - dg series, electric choke, variable
DGAV - dg series, water choke, variable
DFAV/DFEV, same as above, but df series, same as DG, but throttle plates are mirrored left to right. DF series are common in volkswagen swaps.. throttle on the opposite side.
DGES/DGAS, same as above, but synchronous. as both barrels open at the same time, as opposed to the variable above, which opens primary first, then the secondary begins to open at ~66% throttle application. The DGxS models are commonly found in the 38/38mm variety.
A common 32/36 DGEV is what you'd want to look for. The adapter plate makes things interesting, as its just one more thing to buy, but in the end, the Weber is the best option overall when put up head to head against the hicrappy or carter carbs.
Rebuild kits run around $65 or so.. I know, I just bought one for my own Weber.
