Water and Webers

Planning on going out to the favorite local spot this weekend to break in Chitty. There's lots of water so my question is..how do the Webers do with water? Anyone have any thoughts on how deep is safe? That open air cleaner just makes me nervous

Re: Water and Webers

There are some adapters available for the DGV series carbs that will allow the use of a snorkel . PM me if you can't find anything....

Re: Water and Webers

I was starting to get nervous in this pic cause I was not quite halfway across yet. I have the adapter to fit the stock ait cleaner system. My buddies runs the open everytime he gets water up past the top of the stock bumper his air cleaner takes a bath, just be careful I think alot of water gets sprayed from the fan.

Re: Water and Webers

does a snorkel really help that much? we do most of our wheeling in trails that are REALLY close to a big river and dam (ar KANSAS river hehe)... so it gets pretty flooded at times. I would think if water gets that high, yer SOL anyways? is this right? why have the snorkel all the way up there?

Re: Water and Webers

I can't think of any reason except for splashing water. If your in water that deep your zook would be floating anyway. I think snorkels are useful for water crossings that are about hood high. Any higher then that, espically with a slight current and you won't get any traction.

Re: Water and Webers

I've had water over the hood before with the stock carb and I made it through OK. I trashed my Samurai though 'cuz it was salt water.... long story... But, it did make it through with no problems. It just rusted out about 15 minutes later.

Re: Water and Webers

you know people say a sammie would float cause it is so light but when you look at some mod sammies they are weighing in at 3000+ that seems like it would push through some pretty deep stuff! but you have to get those spark plug wires right?? how thick are they??
