Re: Weber 32/36 DGAV

If you go with an electric pump, which is a lot safer and will provide the correct fuel flow for the carb , you can use the existing steel lines and mount the electric pump in place of the rear fuel filter . In the engine bay, the steel lines that feed fuel up to the carb can be used for a regulator/guage setup since the lines are already 5/16" or 8mm . This will eliminate two potential problems . One , the stock fuel pumps are notorious for dumping fuel in the engine and wrecking the crank . Two, the stock fuel pumps sometimes won't provide enough flow to keep up with the carb under a hard load . Check the color of your plugs , they will tell you how the jetting is . If there is any off-idle hesitation or stumble , or lack of pull or roar at high rpm, it's not jetted correctly . I set most 1.6's up with 145 mains , 50-55 idle jets, and 170 air correctors. Accelerator pump nozzle with a 55 or 60 also . That adapter kit should install with no problems , unless you got the weird 1 pc design . The first base plate goes on with 4 allen head countersunk screws, same with the second plate . The carb studs just bottom out to meet the first base plate . Hope this helps,
