What webers will/will not work? What the heck do the letters mean?

I guess I can just stick with 32/36 since that seems to work for everyone. (kinda lookin for my dual carb manifold (EA81), may have to re-jet though)
Thanks, The Bozzinator!

Yeah - what Tim said - the "e" is for electric (roughly), and the "a" is for aqua (water). They are the type of choke.

HOWEVER - Redline appears to be rebuilding or reusing castings of the DGAV and putting on the electric choke. My BRAND NEW Weber from the Redline kit K730 has "DGAV" stamped right on the side of the casting.... it is not a water choke model. So really the whole naming convention can be thrown out the window as it means basically nothing now. When your searching on ebay it's quite likely that a DGEV could be listed as a DGAV since that's what is stamped on it.... also any of them could be converted at any time by buying the proper choke kit from redline - so really you are looking for ANY of those, just as long as it has the electric choke you'll be fine (unless you want the water or the manual...). Your looking for a 32/36 Weber DGEV/DGAV/DGV.

I haven't done it, but supposedly the electric and water choke carbs can be converted to manual choke with a $10 kit found in most corner part stores.

As as side note, I've seen castings stamped made in Italy and made in Spain. I think Spain is more recent.

So what's best for an old EA81? I would think maybe a manual choke? Electrical items always have issues and water will be warm and you want carbs to be cool. My main concern is the easiest for the dual carbs. Water might take some fabbing to run to both. Same with electric. (But may not be reliable) A manual is run by a cable right? If so, that can be split very easily. I guess none are really that hard but I am looking for the most simple, basic and reliable (for dual carbs) But it is safe to bid on ANY weber 32/36 I guess.
