Weber Carb.

I was wondering if anyone has had a problem with a sticking throttle after installing a weber carb? I had no problems for a while, but now all of a suden it does it all the time now. I've sprayed lube on it but it only fixes it temporarily. A buddy of mine said it might need a stronger return spring. Anyway, I need help to fix this, anyone give me any ideas? Thanks...

Re: Weber Carb.

Some weber carb kits come with a system that adds a return spring. On my weber there is a small hole in the bell crank of the throttle linkage of the carb. This small hole is just above the cylinder on end of throttle cable. The other end of the spring is attached to small hole I drilled in base plate of rectangle air filter box. Spring is about 2 inches long by 3/16 Dia. from hardware store. First I just hooked the spring on the hole in the bell crank in the bell crank and it lasted a month. Now have a small loop of wire there so the spring is attached without the spring's end being bent each time the throttle is opened.
Might be able to get a picture of it.

Re: Weber Carb.

I just installed a Weber conversion on my '87 and the feel of the accelerator pedal is VERY different from stock, but I haven't had any trouble with it sticking so far. The difference in the performance on mine is great though. My Hitachi was running really rich and nothing I tried would lean out the mixture. I am going to try to increase the spring tension some on my linkage so I can keep from floor boarding it.
