Weber carb-again.

Back to this again, I have read back over some old notes fron O/R and Jonathon Hall recommends a K601 Weber 32/36 DGAV. I think. He says it outperforms the K600.
I am in the dark, so before I fork out my dollars, can I get some feed back here?
I would like to buy a manifold adapter and Filter adapter too, can't get them here. Any suggestions on this as well ?
Thanks in advance to all,
Alfie.

Re: Weber carb-again.

Hokay, let me rephrase the Q.
If you are using a Weber Carb on your 1.3 L Zuk, what model and fitting parts have you used. And have you blocked off the vents etc.
PLeeeeeese,
Alfie.
My Weber man hasn't sold a one for a Zuk so we're in the dark here.
Thanks.
A.

Re: Weber carb-again.

I have a used one I will sell you. I need to check the model number. it has a filter and the adapter plates.
I got it with a bunch of parts I bought. I am happy with my Pony carb so I won't swap to a weber.

Re: Weber carb-again.

Hi, I am Jonathan Hall. There are two different kits. One kit is the stock air filter adapter with a one piece intake manifold. The second kit is the chrome air filter with two-piece "raised and ported" adapter. I don't think there are any internal carb differences between the kits other than the chrome air filter model having considerably larger jets. This gives the engine a little bit more get up and go with only minimal mpg change. I did the write up about 4-5 years ago so my brain is now a little hazy on details like jet sizes.

Re: Weber carb-again.

The carb I have is the type with the chrome aircleaner and the 2 piece adapter.

Re: Weber carb-again.

I am asking $175.00 US. The only thing wrong with it that I know of is the inlet for the coolent on the choke is busted.
I will fix it before I sell it. Texas A&M allready has first dibs, I will put you second if you want.

Re: Weber carb-again.

I was lucky enough to find a Chiltons book on Webers on eBay. I have never seen this manual in any store. It has been a godsend as far as working on mine and keeping everything running as it should. But again, I'm no mechanical genius. [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Re: Weber carb-again.

Thanks for the offer Glenn, but I can buy New for the same price here. Just can't get the adaptors etc. and the know how.By the time i freighted your carb over it would be uneconomical.
Jonathon I appreciate your help, in the article I have here you mention some jet sizes so I will order my carb with those.
Where can I get the adaptor kits, the one for the chromey filter sounds like the one to have. (I will get it sent over)
But I will run the stock filter box with my snorkel and K&N.
From what i've read the Weber can be made to work very well off road. ?
Thanks again to all.
Alfie.
