Weber carb questions

I am wanting to put a Weber carb on my 88 Samurai( 1.3 L engine).Is there anything special I need to know before I do it? Like what do I do with all the wiring harnesses that goto my stock carb?And how will this affect all the smog crap on it?I really just want to know can I just bolt it on and be good to go? And what kind of performance gain will I see? I use my Zuki as a daily driver,and the occasional trail or two on hunting trips.Thought I would mention this because I have seen where people are putting them on backwards and stuff because of steep incline flooding problems and such.Dont really need things like this ,just basic info on installing and tuning.

Any tips or tricks will be appreciated.

Re: Weber carb questions

The Webers can be made to perform great , but some knowledge of carbs is a lot of help . As far as running the bowl backwards , it's the only way to go . Also, I always recommend running an aftermarket generic electric fuel pump , they only cost $40 and are available almost anywhere. An electric can be mounted in place of the stock rear fuel filter , and run off a relay on the key . The stock mechanical pumps are notorious for leaking fuel into the engine, and are unable to provide enough fuel volume to keep up with the Weber under wide open throttle . One thing that has to be used is a decent fuel pressure regulator , as those carbs will overrun with anything over 3psi . If you have anymore q's , just call or email...

Hi Sarge, Can you tell a little more about the relay you use to run the electric fuel pump and how you wire it in?

Thanks,
Don

Re: Weber carb questions

You only retain 2 of the orignal vacuum hoses the rest you remove and plug off.

Re: Weber carb questions

You know I dont remember either, I think it's right under the thermostat on the carb then under the intake manifold

Re: Weber carb questions

Seems like there is alot of tweaking to get this ting to run good....I had a stock carb go out on me a couple weeks ago and I found another used one that is running pretty good for now anyways....just thought if it wasnt alot of trouble I would swap to a Weber.I will have to way out the options I have since I am wanting to do alot of things to my Sami. I have had it for 4 yrs now and never really did anything to it.....now I kinda got the bug to fix it up a bit....I just hate to invest alot of money in it....its like the saying goes if it aint broke dont fix it [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Re: Weber carb questions

you will luv you weber once it runs right .sarge set up my jets for me at IN fab fest ,he is a great guy and knows his weber down drafts.i am soon to drop my new engine in (replacing gaskets in the replacement engine today)i will be running my weber,electrical fuel pump,oilpressure cut off switch,and fuel pump regulator.i think any of the stalling i had in the past should be gone.and it should run like a top.
