Holley looks like Weber?

I just bought a Holley carb, of unknown origin. It was cheap and it looks EXACTLY like the Weber, is it? I only know it is pre '80's. ANY, I say again, ANY information would be greatly appriciated. I know Holley and Weber kinda joined or something, but I don't know how much of bedpartners they really were. [img]images/graemlins/40BEER.gif[/img]

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.

Re: Holley looks like Weber?

I think Sarge had some good info in a post about these carbs quite a while ago. Lots of internal differences from a Weber if I remember.

Sarge?

Re: Holley looks like Weber?

Yes, they were a licensed version of the DGV series Webers. The circuits nor jets work the same although they do look very alike . Some guys have actually had very good luck with them on Jeeps , ect...

Re: Holley looks like Weber?

So what your saying is I'm S.O.L. on being able to get parts such as jets and such for this carb. Are there any good sites for Old Holley small carbs by any chance? Anyone, Bueller? [img]images/graemlins/thud.gif[/img]

Re: Holley looks like Weber?

There is quite a following for the old pinto, and chevette motors for mini-stock racing. I am sure somebody is makeing parts for those carbs. I'm not sure(I can look...got one in the basement) but I think they use the same size jets as a Holley 4bbl.

Re: Holley looks like Weber?

After much hair pulling (I'm bald) and research, I have found these are an EXACT copy/prototype/genuine 32/36 WEBER! I have pulled exploded views, circuit diagrams, history, and specs. Holley jets don't fit it, I found out the hard way, by buying one. Weber jets fit! It IS a WEBER!!! Thanks for all of you help though, I will keep you posted on all of the jetting as well as what years they came off of and where to buy the jets. Red Herrings are great aren't they!

Re: Holley looks like Weber?

Hey,

Search... I know I read about this on one of the boards b4..
seems like it has different jets that don't interchange with regular webers.. so ithink setting it up ... finding parts (jets) and tech data might be the problem... probably
has different bolt pattern for base and air cleaner as well not sure..

-Allen
