Weber IDF & ICH carbs....


Guest Anonymous

After bidding on errrBay for what was allegedly advertised as a weber 38/38 DCOE, I was e-mailed by the seller as he was informed somehow that the carb is weber 44 IDF. To me, the carb looks just like a 32/36 or 38/38 DCOE from the pictures. Is it possible to use the IDF carbs as the the 34 ICH's are usable on an 02?

TIA

Ummm...the dcoe's are sidedrafts, the IDF is a downdraft. Big difference there. You can probably use a 44/44 IDF downdraft, though the usual downdrafts for the 2002 are the progressive 32/36 DGV and 38/38 or 40/40 DGAS non-progressive types. The FAQ store sells the 48 IDA, which is similar to the 44 IDF, I believe, but I don't know if it would hook up to a 2002 2-bbl manifold.

DCOE carbs are side draft. DGEV/DGAV are downdraft carbs.

There was no 38 DCOE carb. My guess is that you refer to a 38/38 DGV serie, which was also available as a 40/40.

The 44 IDF certainly did not come from a 2002 and therefore was not jetted for a 2002. How much trouble are you willing to take over, trying to physically fit the carb and then jet it?

Just my 02 cents worth of wisdom.

It was a type O..with a big O. I know for a fact the the 38/38 is a down draft carb.. but this image from the 44IDF is almost simillar as the 38/38, I was just wondering if it was worth going for it, assuming it has the basic characterstics of the other webers that fit a double barrel 02 manifold.

Depending on which car it came from, you will have to rejet it to fit your application. perfect time to buy a book on Webers and learn how they work.

Well one of my buddies in high school had this killer VW bug and it ran 48 IDF's. Fricking was a monster with him at the wheel.

Anyways the IDA is the racing version of the IDF at least in regards to the 48mm versions. They have different accelerator pumps. The IDA has a piston type pump while the IDF uses a diaphram pump. There are also differences in the progression circuits.

The IDA's have better off idle transition and supposedly are easier to drive on the street. Supposedly the IDF's flow better and are made for wide open throttle racing.

As for the 44's I don't really know. Try some VW websites as these are fairly common carbs with the VW guys.

I'd seriously try to get a 38/38...then at least you know the ballpark jetting works and have others that have that carb on a 02.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
