Weber + Hills = trouble.... what to do?

Ive read the fix about using liquid solder and drillin a hole but when were looking into my carb it just doesnt look right... anyone got any good websites too go to? Thanks a ton.

Flip the carb around 180 degrees. I have done every mod and even some trick stuff I came up with myself to my Weber to prevent flooding and that one takes the cake! I can climb the nastiest hill you can point me to and stop at the bad part and she still runs, I love it.

lilzeus is right! Putting that bugger in 180 degrees makes all the difference! I haven't stalled yet on any hill or off-camber spot when wheelin'

For those with the 180 Weber, how did you arrange the linkage? Pics Please?

The throttle cable will be the same just on the front of the engine instead of the rear. I believe you will need longer coolant lines for the water choke though. I am going to try it this weekend just for the hell of it. I'll let you know how it turns out.

The throttle will route pretty much the same, and those water hoses need about 4 more inches on them. It WILL stall going DOWN hill though, but better down than up.
