Rebuilding Weber

I recently got a used Weber 32/36 for my YJ 258. It has not been used in two years, so I figure the best thing before the install is to rebuild it. I bought the kit from quadratec, but the directions it comes with is only a drawing of the carb, not too good. Anyone have instructions on how to rebuild or any advice on that? Still looking for someone to help me with the install this weekend in the NYC area. Also, about how long should it take to rebuild? Thanks.

Re: Rebuilding Weber

I got that with the rebuild kit, but it does not really tell you much on how to rebuild it. I guess I'll just have to figure it out. I'm just nervous I will take it apart and not be able to put it back together. Thanks anyway.

Re: Rebuilding Weber

Actually, I'm installing the exact same carb into my '88 4.2L. I'm replacing my testy Carter BBD.
The install instructions from Weber Redline are scaring me a little. If anyone has better step-by-step info, I'd love it have it.

One more thing... The instructions say "silcone or rtv sealant is NOT acceptable" for sealing the gaskets.
What else is there? All I see are silcone RTV. Thanks for any help...

Re: Rebuilding Weber

Permatex makes a sealant called Hylomar HPF, the stuff is impervious to gas and solvents. It is the only sealant I will use in an application like you are talking about. BTW, the Weber install is a piece of cake. Unbolt the Carter, throw it as far as you can, put the spacer and gaskets on, bolt down the Weber, Set the linkage, get rid of 12 miles of vacuum hose, set your idle and drive away. The whole thing took me about an hour a couple years ago.

Re: Rebuilding Weber

Where can you get that Hylomar from? Would a pep boys or auto zone have it? Also, as far as a fuel pressure regulator, where can i pick one up from? I called an auto zone and pepboys and they both said they don't make one for my '87 YJ and I explained that it makes sense that they wouldn't since the carter doesn't need one. Any ideas on where to pick one up? Thanks.

Re: Rebuilding Weber

Checker or any of those kind of stores will will have the Permatex Hylomar, it comes in a tube and is a bright blue color. As far as an FPR, there isn't one for a particular application, they are universal. I recommend the NAPA unit, very heavy duty, about $25. Just put it in you fuel delivery line AFTER the filter. Just make sure you have the arrows on the FPR facing with the gas flow, that is towards the carb.
