Weber part sources ? & tuning info

Does anyone know of any part sources on the East coast that are not mail order? I'm fine tuning my Weber and it seems silly to pay a minimum for a cc purchase and have to buy things I really don't need.
While in NZ, I found a shop that carried Weber parts in stock. I got the next size up and installed them when I got home. They made a huge difference! I went from .050 idle jets to a .055. I might be on the money now and will know for certain in a day or so if I need to go even larger.
I spoke with a very knowledgeable fellow from the Topica list regarding Weber tuning and he gave me a good idea.
Using a DVM that is high imedance, tap it into your (working) O2 sensor and temp tape the DVM to your dash. After it is fully warmed up, the mixture can be monitored while driving under different load conditions. This will give a much better basis from which to make the proper jetting adjustments, taking a great deal of the guess work out of it. .4 -.6 volts is in the ideal range. Lower is leaner and higher is richer.
Hope this might be of help to anyone tweakin' their Weber.....

Creator, everything we do leaves a track. May our tracks be ones we would want you to see and others to follow......

Re: Weber part sources ? & tuning info

Any performance VW shop should be able to provide you with the jets you need. We have one locally that usually has any kind of Weber jets you may need. Their name is Peek Performance and they are in Seabrook, Maryland. Ask for Sean or Dave. They have a website too for more information.

Napa has been pretty good for having weber stuff in stock - jets have to be ordered most the time- but so far all the other weber parts I have needed have been in stock..
