What Have You Done to your Soobie lately? (Please post in here and keep it going)

Recommended Posts

Today I drove to work in my Loyale. Left work early for dr. appointment. As I entered highway car died. My brother gave me a quick tow back to shop where we checked spark...good, sprayed brake cleaner in intake where it started right up. Came directly home and pulled fuel pump off parts car. Maybe running out of gas last week helped finish off the 200K mile pump.

Was driving back from having my y pipe flange rotated at the exhaust shop when I had a bunch of steam rolling out from under the hood and smelled coolant.

 

Got pulled over and the hood popped open, there's coolant all over the top of the driver's side of the engine. WTF?!?!?! Still got plenty of coolant in the radiator, decide to bomb home before I lose much more coolant since it's only a couple more blocks.

 

Got it home and opened her up again, still running, get the spare and the air cleaner pulled off and start probing around with my screwdriver. Poked a hose and a stream of coolant goes wizzing by my face :horse: Found it!

 

Here was the culprit:

Got it replaced with a new piece a few inches longer so I could route it around that linkage instead of up against it.

Nothing! Which is a miracle!

 

Ok, not entirely true. I had steam come out from under the hood last week, discovered I needed to tighten down the clamp for the hose/thermostat housing.

 

Added some oil.

 

...other than that, though, nothing!

 

Oh, and I need to swap out my snow tires this weekend.

im not sure, but it already has the datsun conversion plate, so that saved me some cash. im sure it is fully funcional, it has an air filter and all. other wise i guess i will learn how to rebuild a weber! :banana:

Had a spare ignition & rear cylinders re-keyed to my new L&R door cylinders today for my 87 GL wagon. Will replace all cylinders in car tomorrow. Street trolls have ruined the locks.:dead:

That's Great!

But they said in the Ad that it had electric choke (DGEV), but the Pictures Show are of the Water Choke Model (DGAV) ...

 

nope look again at the other pictures; on the carb it is stamped in DGAV and you can see the electric choke housing.

ok so i am replacing the struts in my 85' ea82 station wagon, and im swaping the springs my self. does anybody know the torque spec for the strut rod. ( its underneath the rubber cap on the strut mount ) ???

I don't know te torque off hand, but just tighten it down with a 1/2" drive ratchet/breaker bar. When I did the struts in the Legacy I just torqued it up to my liking. The only think I follow torque specs to would be Head gaskets.

As you wrote, it really says "DGAV" on the carb's Body, which means that it originally came factory with Water Choke, so if it has an Electric Choke, that electric choke must be an addition, because Weber uses the "DGAV" Nomenclature for those Carbs that comes factory with Water Choke and "DGEV" for those who comes factory with Electric choke.

The Weber Nomenclature is very confusing, but as Far as I Know and I understood, it goes like This:

 

The Numbers in a Weber denote the Throttle Plate bore, Not the throat and Constitute the "Prefix".

 

The Letters immediately following the prefix refer, in Italian, to the general type of the carburetor.

 

 

For Weber only a few are consistant, specifically:

 

- DC "doppio corpo" (Means: Double Throat)

- V "verticale" (Means: Vertical)

- O "orizzontale" (Means: Horizontal)

- I "invertito" (Means: Inverted, in like in the IDA)

 

Yet there are No Updraft Weber Carburetors, the IDA is a Downdraft model.

 

 

 

Less Consistant Designations:

 

- E for die cast body

- F for Ford, Ferrari or Fiat applications

- V are Carburators with a power valve assembly

- A for Water operated Chokes

- E for electric Chokes

 

Any Numbers following the letters are Variations of the Basic type.

 

In Example: 45DCOE9 is a variant of the 45DCOE... but please also keep in mind that there are 10 subvariants of the DCOE9 ... :eek: ...

 

Therefore, the Weber Nomenclature follows the Lucas Wiring model... Chaos! :lol:

 

For instance, the IDA "inverted double water choke" is a Downdraft carb Which could have Three throats and typically has No choke at all... :banghead:

 

The 40 DCO is a 40mm Throttle Plate with a Double Throat Horizontal Carb, fitted to the Alfa Romeo Guilietta Veloce and follows the nomenclature perfectly; But The 40 DCOE used in later Alfa Romeos is Not die cast, does Not have an Electric Choke... :confused: ...in this case the E stands for the Trapezoid Mounting bolt pattern, Rather than the DCO's Rectangular Pattern.

 

The Weber Jet Sizing is a Numeric Nomenclature which actually is a Flow Rating in hundreds of a millimeter, and is very Reliable.

 

If you are using Emulsion tubes however there is no Hope in linking numbers with tube sizing. :dead: Because the Emulsion tube numbers were assigned Chronologically.

 

In Example: an F-45 tube was designed after the F-44 but that says Nothing about its Size or Performance.

 

Just to make things Thoroughly Twisted, some idle jets have F numbers like emulsion tubes that indicate their ability to Emulsify Fuel.

I am now the proud owner of everything I need to five lug swap my 85 GL, minus the reamer to hog out my EA82 control arms for EJ ball joints. Front end parts are all off a 97 Impreza Outback Wagon, rears are the standard xt6 hubs and rotors. Plan is to use the 200sx rear calipers and get the rear handbrake ability! :banana::banana::banana::banana::banana::banana::banana:
