Weber 32/36 on Buick 231

Anyone running a weber 32/36 on a buick 231? If so, 1) did you have to make your own adapter plate, 2) what's the upper rpm that you can run, and 3) what other carb would you rather run?

TIA.

A Rochester 2G would be a good carb if you want to run 2 bbl. It's what the 231's predacessor, the 225 used. Depends on what vintage 231 you have as to what adapter would be needed. If you have a '79 or newer 231, you could run the Edelbrock Performer intake and Edelbrock Q-Jet 4 bbl carb #1904 as I am and have the best off-road carb made.

Tim,

What is the CFM of the Q-Jet #1904? I've read that there was a specific Q-jet made for the 231 which is smaller than the Q-jets made for V8s, but I did'nt see any CFM ratings. I have a 84-85 3.8 liter if that makes a difference.

Thanks,

Steve

Re: Weber 32/36 on Buick 231

The cfm of the 1904 Edelbrock Q-Jet is 795. You will never utilize that much from it with your 231 due to it's design. You could search out the Rochecter Q-Jet that came on the turbo-231's and the 252 from 1980 and prior, ('81 and newer Q-Jets were computer-controlled), but the 1904 Edelbrock works equally well on both my '66 Jeepster Commando with Buick 252/4.1L V-6 as it does on my Buick 350 V-8 powered '70 Wagoneer.
