Here is my guide again for people looking for Used Weber Carbs at the JY or on Ebay

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. These vehicles had Webers as conversions only. No car in the US or Canada came factory with the DGV or DGAV

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

Questionable carbs
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
