Re: Holley looks like Weber?
Here's some info I've gathered off this site and others. It's not mine and wish I could credit those that did the homework but I can't. That said here goes:
The Holley 5200 carburator is easy to get (Ford 4 cylinders, including Bobcat, Mustang, Escort, Capri II). Also used as conversions for Weber equipped VW's with tuning problems. The 5200 is actually a cooperative effort between Holley, and Weber, and is a N.American built derivative of the DGV/DGAV/DFAV series of Webers. It's got a mechancial type secondary, w/ progressive linkage, and there have been a number of different bore sizes, including 32/38, 34/38, 34/40, and 36/40. They come fitted for both ball & rod, or cable linkages - the newer you get, the more likely you'll find one set up for cable operation, in which case, 'conversion' is easy. Just like regular Webers - you'll need an adapter for the air filter.
Mounting pattern is standard metric.
The Fords are mostly electric choke (DGEV) while the Chevy version is mostly a water choke (DGAV) The jets will NOT interchange with a Weber without rethreading the throttle body.
Thats all I have so far hope it helps.
