Need to replace Weber 32/36.


Recommended Posts

The Weber 32/36 DGAV in my 1976 standard 2002 is tired. I am looking at replacing it with another of the same model.


Question -  Is the Redline kit sold by Blunttech jetted and set up correctly for a stock engine that lives at 1200 feet(Phoenix), but travels occasional  to 5000 or even 7000 feet?


Or, should I be looking at buying from someone who will re-jet to another prescription?

Question- what do you mean tired?  If the throttle shafts feel loose, they have plastic bushings that can be replaced.  You also have the option of replacing them with ball bearings.  I did that on my primary shaft, but the secondary seemed okay.


As for jetting, it is not hard to swap them around yourself.  c.d's prescription seems to be working well for me at sea level, but I have not installed the exhaust sensor yet, to really know how it is doing.


I have been inside mine to reset float height, swap jets, clean it out and stuff several times.  A little tweaking and it always seems to come around.  I am just wondering whether you actually need a new one.

+ 1 on rebuild.  I had the same Weber on my car from 1979 to 2013 before replacing it--and as it turned out I didn't need to replace it; I just rebuilt the old one and kept it for a spare.  And my friend Dene and I rebuilt a Weber that had been sitting outside (on an engine) for nearly 16 years--first we had to chip the mud-dauber wasp nests off it before cleaning it. It's now running just fine.

    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
