Well, I finally got brave enough to start studying on my used weber. (I have little experience with working on carbs) Took it off the shelf and tore it down. Installed the rebuild kit. While I was at it, I checked out all the jets, to see what was in there. On my wagon, it started hard, stumbled on acceleration, and so on. It had run, but not well. (though when I first put it on, a few months ago, it had so much more low end torque, that I got exited. But after driving it a few days, I realized I had much to learn, and tuning to do, but no time, so put the de-emissioned Hitache back on. Which sucked too.) The guy I got the weber from had never run it, and was told it had been on a VW baha type rig.
Here's what I found when I tore it down:
Primary idle 55
Secondary idle 50
Main prime 140
Secondary prime 135
Air prime 160
Air secondary 165
I found specs for what Redline puts in them for our Soobs, so shot for that.
My local parts store had most of what I wanted. Now it has:
Primary idle 50
prime second 135
I had to order a main 140 from carbs unlimited, though I don't know what to expect when installed, and I'm reluctant to pull the top off again, it's running so great now.
and things are much much improved. No stumble whatsoever. Pulls great in 1st, 2nd and 3rd. 4th is still a little doggy, but improved. I'm lifted with 27s so 5th is about useless anyway. Idles smooth. I'm happy camper. Now to burn up a tank of gas, and check mileage.
Oh, and it's a manual choke, and at 18 degrees this morning, after pumping the gas at full choke, she started immediatly.
I don't know much, but I'm learning!!
Now then, what about these plenums? http://shop.knfilter...spx?pid=85-8927
Jeeze, they look nice, but at 180 bucks or something, definatly not worth it! I'd like to find a used one! (ROFL!) Fat chance eh? Like a snowball in, well, you know.
Anyways, I couldn't have pulled off getting this car running the way she is without this board and and all the great info here. Thanks guys.
