Weber Carb setup

Postby EagleFish » Sat Jul 01, 2006 6:37 pm

Well, it just arrived today and it is setting on my living room floor. I bought a brand new Weber carburetor setup from Hutton Motor Engineering (HME) complete with intake, linkage, air cleaner and installation parts. In other words, a bolt-on kit. This will complete my Cosworth Vega restoration project. I am eliminating the EFI system in favor of the carb setup. It is so sweet! >D
These carbs are almost all gone as their manufacture is discontinued. HME had to get the carbs out of Spain. The whole setup cost with shipping to my house was $1325.00. It will be a while until I get the setup installed and running. But, I can hardly wait!

I completed some work on my 79 Spyder. The 305 engine smoked, used a lot oil and didn't perform all that well. I removed the valve covers and found a lot of sludge built up preventing the oil from draining back to the crankcase quickly. I rodded out all of the drain back holes pulling most of the sludge back out, changed the oil and filter. Now it doesn't smoke or blow out oil. It idles smoothly, even with the a/c on and it runs much better over all.

I am very hbody happy!
