weber vs.?

my bbd runs better than any other i've seen, BUT--it doesn't like to idle on steep inclines. thinking about injection, but i've also seen a lot of people scratching their heads over a jeep on the side of the trail that won't move, and carbs are simpler. anywhose, do webers run on angles? that is my question.

Re: weber vs.?

If they are tuned right they will. If you get one buy a cheap fuel pressure regulator, start at 3 psi.

Re: weber vs.?

Rebuilding and adjusting the carter might help. It all depends on what you are calling a steep incline. If you can find yourself a Motorcraft 2100 carb off a 304 AMC V8 you can bolt it on with an adapter plate and a modification to the throttle linkage. Those carbs idle very well and make good power on inclines. In fact they idle very well and are quite stable running compared to the finicky carter. You might be able to do the Motorcraft install for quite cheap if you find a junkyard carb and rebuilt it. The adapter is about $20.00.

Re: weber vs.?

Please don't forget the Rochester 2G series. These bolt on without an adapter and are usu. ready to run after an idle speed and mixture adjustment. I've bought 3 at O'Reilly's; ask for a 2 bbl carb for a 65 Chevy Impala with manual trans. They run under $100 exchange (give 'em the Carter)
