Re: Who needs help with their Weber??
At one time there was a multiple carb manifold available to fit the 258, haven't seen one of those in years . I have recently seen a spreadbore to DCNF pattern adapter on Ebay but it went pretty high . Bet someone bought it thinking a DGV would fit [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
I got a chance to work on a Fiat 124 awhile back, rebuilt the carb and of course took it for a test ride. For a cheap sports car from 1976, that thing goes like stink. The motor is the plain old cast iron 1800 and really is lacking compression but it would still bark the tires in 1,2 and 3rd gears no problem. The dumb thing handles like a Porsche but rides better than most luxury cars of today. The Italians sure have it figured out .
I'm finishing the final linkage and some minor parts for a 40DCNF to fit this Suzuki hybrid I built . I'd eventually like to make one for a Jeep as they would benefit from the torque curve of that carb , much like the difference in the standard 32/36DGV's compared to the 38DGAS series . I've been running a 38DGAS for awhile now, it just lacks a bit hence the move to the 40mm . I do have the manifold for the twin sidedraft DCOE setup, but don't want the carbs that low sucking up water .
BTW, don't happen to have any odd parts laying around??
