Title: Weber carbs
Post by: inthedark on 15 February, 2008, 07:44:58 PM
Hi All,
does anyone have an exploded diagram for a Weber dcoe carburetor, otherwise I shall have to guess
where all the bits go............
(could also do with a couple of venturi to fit a 40 dcoe)

Hi Geoff

I think I have a few 40 dcoe bits - but what bit precisely is the venturi! Is it the main "tube"? Let me know and I can then have a look.

Hi Jai,
inside the entrance of the carb is a central tube - that's the venturi.
any bits you have that you don't need I'd be happy to buy. I need to rebuild one for
the supercharged Gamma project. (might as well get them before you put them on e-bay Ha Ha)
regards

Supercharged Gamma  :-* 

I can't let that one pass without asking for more information...   

I can remember Jack's writeup about some turbo Gammas.   

Is this a "home brew"?

I'm afraid so David,
I tried two electric chargers and had an improvement so I purchased an Eaton M45
supercharger and am in the process of mounting it (with a weber 40 dcoe) on my
other gamma (with boost gauge / bypass valve etc.) expect 40% increase in BHP.

Thanks for the offer Richard,
I  only need the exploded diagram (Now rec'd)  as the carb will not have std jets/chokes etc.
regards
Geoff

Geoff,

Late in the day and probably totally irrelevant, but also to let you know I care I do have good copies of blueprint drawings of Weber 40 IDA 3C. If you are thinking of a triple downdraft carb conversion for a Gamma they might be useful, but you would be daft to do so. What you are actually doing sounds much more exciting.

Otherwise they might be of more interest to anyone wanting to do something imaginative for an Aurelia or Flaminia, which is why I have them in the first place.

Colin

Thanks Colin, but I think an increase of 35-40% bhp is probably enough
