    i need a good upgrade carb fast!!!!

    my car is about to hit the road soon and i am upgrading the exhaust system to an all pacesetter system. my thermostat housing go messed up and the only way i can see to get it off is to take the head off. i want to change the headgasket cuz the car did over heat a few times. anyways once i take the complete exhaust system off the head is comming off, is it esier to take the car off with the head? if i am pulling the carb off i minds well replace it/upgrade. the carb war ran alont time with no filter and it has a lot os dust in it from sitting in the shop for 9 months. pluse when i try to run the car it dosent want to idle so i just decided to upgrade the carb. any1 have any suggestions on what carb to get? i wanted a side draft but i really dont want to spen so much money. i was thinknig about checking ebay but i know nothing about carbs, what type should i be looking for?

    The DHLAs are Dellorto's answer to Weber DCOEs (like PhydeauX put on his car, search for his postings). The DHLAs supposedly perform as well as the DCOEs, but are more difficult to find parts for. The DHLAs accomplish the same purpose as the DCOEs, but with a more modern (they have more plastic parts) approach. DCOEs have a more prominent name in racing. Both brand carbs are sturdy, and used models will serve you well. You'll want to rebuild them for sure, so even though the DHLAs are cheaper, consider that you'll have more difficulty getting replacement parts for them. DCOEs are easy to get replacement parts for, but are also about double the price, used. Phydeax had to have an intake manifold custom made in order to fit them onto his car (I'm doing this now, too). DCOEs and DHLAs fit the same manifolds, but that's the only thing that interchanges between the two. If you do this conversion, you will have great power gains. Plan on putting some time and $ into it, though - especially time to tune the carbs correctly. I think the whole conversion ran Phydeaux $600 or so. Look for sidedraft carbs (you'll need 2) that have 34mm chokes (main venturis) in them. You can buy the chokes and many of the other jettings later, but having them the size you need to start out will save some $. Man, I didn't know the DHLAs were so cheap! Go for it if you have the time!

    No. No one does. Check out Phydeaux's posts on how he made his manifold. It's a custom job.
    Go here for links to his postings on it.

    The kit that www.carbs.net sells only works for the DG series Weber carbs, not the sidedraft carbs, which is what hondavtec was asking about. If he wants to go with a DG series carb, it would be a lot easier and more cost effective. But not more performance effective.

    My weber idles very nicely. I make sure my air filter is clean and the carb is tuned. I got a used weber; I had to change the jets and I went through at least 5 different linkage setups before I was halfway satisfied with the feeling of my accel pedal. The only thing that bugs me is the right hand turn stumble and miss... but oh well, I've learned to adjust some of my driving habits.

    Weber 38 DGES fitment

    Can this Weber be made to work on a DX? I've found one cheap and thought it might be an improvement over the 32/36.

    Cheers,

    With money anything is possible. My question should really have stated, "Can this be done as easily as a 32/36?". There are kits w/ adapter plates for the 32/36. Could one of these be modified to work with the 38 or is a custom plate required (and how much might that cost)?

    Thanks for the help.

    Cheers,

    Roland

    yes you can use the same plate adapter to mount 38, but you may want to make the primary a little bigger on the plate and intake.
    ask A20A1 he has weber with regrind adapter plate and manifold.

    Angry Weber Install Problems need help

    ok i am installing the weber carb kit on my 89 dx and i have a major throttle linkage problem, The problem is that there is not enough distance that the cable pulls to make the carb go into full throttle position. do you get me? the pedal is on the floor and it doesnt open the carb to full throttle b/c not enough cable is travelling. Any help would be appreciated. Also what happens to all the vacuum lines that are not mentioned in the instructions are they just tossed? info on that would be appreciated but the real problem is the throttle. thanx again

    You need a shorter linkage then. Can you set the throttle cable lower down on the bracket?
