Re: Webber install, questions.
Glad to see another Texan on board. Welcome!
If you do a search you can find several ideas on how to install the weber the best.
As for starting, what works best is to
A. turn on the ignition so the heating element will start to heat the intake manifold.
B. Pump the gas twice then crank. Do not pump the gas while cranking.
C. repeat till she starts.
Also, you may want to check and see if your heating element on the intake is still getting current. It has a single red wire that drops out of the intake manifold under the carb. It is supposed to come on when the ingnition is on and turn off once it reaches 150 degrees. I run mine through a 20 amp switch and turn it on and off manually.
Mine used to be pain in the arse to start. Now it will crank on the first or second try easily.
Just read your profile...Do you shoot on your own or participate in the SASS/cowboy shooting? I've always thought of shooting with the Travis County Regulators.
