Lookin\' for Sarge

Sarge, I am looking at getting a Weber carb and someone refered you to me. How do these carbs perform in offroad? I here they have a dual float deal in them that makes good on steep inclines and prevent them from splashing. Is this true or is it a bunch of hooy. I'm looking at the DGV 2 barrel if that helps.

Yeah, if built correctly and run at the right pressure, they work excellent . No better way to build hp . What are you planning on running it in?

A Ford F-150 with a 300 I6. I'm looking for a simpler solution than FI conversion.

Re: Lookin\' for Sarge

38mm Outlaw synchronous . Basically, it would work just like a standard 2 barrel, just a lot better flow . They are also very easily jetted at different throttle levels , unlike Holleys or Carters . If you have the room under the hood , you could run a 40mm IDA , but they aren't cheap , although they do work better at nasty angles . I can't remember, does those series Fords use solid linkage or a cable? Too many engines, not enough brain cells....

Re: Lookin\' for Sarge

Man I can't remember. I haven't got the truck yet and I couldn't look at the engine because the hood was frozen shut from sleet. I have worked on them a few times but like you I've seen so many engines the details tend to blur. [img]images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]

Re: Lookin\' for Sarge

I hear ya . If I could get my hands on the same manifold you would be using , I could set up some adapters to make it work like factory , the IDA setup would be killer . There may be a kit to fit them already, I'll take a look ....

Re: Lookin\' for Sarge

Well, after a really sore pair of eyes, looks like we'll have to wait until you get the intake, and measure the bolt pattern on it center to center to see which one it is . There are a lot of applications, one way or another it would work . The two key factors are the throttle linkage or cable, and the manifold shape and bolt pattern .
