Weber Carburetor 38DGES

I just purchased a Weber 38DGES carburetor to replace my stock carburetor in my 83 CJ7 with 258 (I-6). The carb. requires that two of the vacuum hoses be supplied w/filtered air. If I install them in top of the filter supplied with the unit I believe the hood with hit them when closed. Has anyone run into this problem. Also does anyone have a diagram of the hose assembly for the carter carb, because I have never replace a carburetor before, and I do not want to mix the hoses up? The installation instructions also said to use gasket sealer on the gaskets, and I remember being told before that gasket sealer should not be used on a carburetor because the gas will deteriorate it and it will begin to leak.

'83 CJ7 Laredo,258-I6,Weber 38DGES Carb.,much much more to come.

Re: Weber Carburetor 38DGES

I am not sure which lines you are referring to that require filtered air the cleaner assembly that came with my 38 had provisions for adapters in the bottom of the unit.As for the gasket sealer , I used non silicone based and have had no leakage problems yet.Sorry I can't really help with the vacuum lines mine is on a 76 and was missing all the emissions stuff when I bought it .

Permatex makes a gasket sealer especially for applications where gas may contact it. I have some at home, it is called HPV or something like that. Is bright blue, very STICKY stuff. I used it on my Weber installation.
