How Bout this Holley carb?

Has anyone here seen the Holley Webers? Its a progressive carb like a 32/36 but smaller( I dunno what size though)
The bolt pattern is the same as 23/36 weber. The holley wbber was used on ford pinto's and VW's I have a couple that I used on my toyota-- they were to small for the cfm requirements of my engine though

Re: How Bout this Holley carb?

I would like to talk to you about the Bug Spray carbs. I am a hardcore VW guy and I have several of the 200cfm and one of the 300cfm models. Actually found rebuild kits for them too. You can pick these carbs for about $10-20 at VW swap meets. I want to put on on my Samurai 1.3L for obvious reasons. Tuning these carbs takes about 3 minutes, rebuilding them takes about 20 minutes. How did it handle on inclines? Where did you get the adapter? I was thinking about drilling my intake to mount it. Seems simpler to just drill the holes and tap in some studs instead of messing with the adapter. How did it handle as far as acceleration and torque?

Re: How Bout this Holley carb?

hey man, i used to run a holley off a 74 mustang circle track car. was jetted for a 2.3 never did rejet for my 1.3. eventually got the better of my motor. anyway, i swear by them. can get a reconditioned one from advance auto parts for $125, i am not into rebuilding a carb, i dont have the patience to readjust them. you can buy a adapter plate for them. costs $65 + shipping from the carb shop i got mine from. my buddy currently uses a early 80s mustang carb, looks different, even though it is a webber liscensed carb too, but no where as good as my old 1974 model holley.

Re: How Bout this Holley carb?

Billy Bob - Is this the same style carburetor? This is a 200cfm Holley Bugspray which is really just a modified Ford pick-up carburetor. They don't get anymore basic than this, now do they? It works flawlessly and is a real snap to tune and rebuild.
