I'm in the prosess of hooking up one of my MK1 chevy sprint/Forsa with a weber carb if you youtube chevysprint weber you see it works
but I have a bog @ 2000g-3000g...
and @ $20 a jet it's getting pricey I'm on my 3rd one and if that is not it I'm going to buy a new recon Hatachi carb for $260 form a mail order parts house even then I friend had to ship it back 3 times before he got one that would run right

I like my Weber a lot better than the Hitachi. It is a lot easier to work on than the original. Only problem with my Weber is I cant get to to idle properly. I think I'll save up to buy a brand new one rather than the used one I have now. BTW JV&S, could you get me a good pic of your throttle cable bracket? I need to remount mine and I'm not sure how.

thats why i asked when you said you couldn't get it to Idel pull the Idel jet its behind the brass screw on the top side in the back out I bet you've got a 60 - 65 in there thats why you can get a decent idel I've got a 45 I can lend ya see what it does for you I'm going 50 because my Idel air adjust is out more then 3 turns (not good) should be 2.5 turns max

Here's a picture I have it ty raped to the charcole canister hoses

Works pretty good but when I'm cruze ing above 2g it bucks like a son -o- bitch till I pore the fuel to it (step on the gas).
Then it smooth out aslong as i keep it in the power range
so I need more fuel off idel and i can get there from changing the idel jet and tunning the idel air blead screw making it Richer... Bah bah bah.......

I do like the crisp punch i get with the weber seems like more top end I don't know if it's the carb or my little volocity stack /adapter I made to adapt the carb to the manifiold??/

it's a brass plug at the top backside use a screw driver to get it out the jet will be stuck to the inside of the brass plug
HERE's a picture of the Idel jet plug it is just left of the fuel hose see were the dark stain is theres a plug the undo it with a screw driver

I checked my idle jet today and it is a 55. I might have to take you up on the offer of letting me borrow that 45, JV&S.

Caveman??? :?: :?:

Thanks, now I have a new avatar!!! 8)

No, I just put mine on awhile ago, it's jetted for a pinto engine, and haven't tinkered with it yet, as it's not on the road yet. One of those long term projects, kinda. I just did the research and found articles on the general aspects of how to tune a Weber DGV, DFAV, etc.
Mine's a DFAV, water choke originally.

Here's a link to jet kits.
