  1. Hello everyone. I replace this Weber 32 36 (water choke) with a side draft. This carb is dialed in perfectly and working great when taken off my car about 2 months ago. Manifold and misc stuff included. Should be able to bolt on and go. Come get it or add shipping cost. Happy to take any specific photo you might want. Thanks.
  2. Why could I not find it? Thanks man. The Porsche did it like the earlier e10s. Simply a fitting at the top of the gas filler neck and a hose that runs to the atmosphere. I plan to use the existing separator ,then the charcoal canister then let that vent to the atmosphere. Thanks again everyone!!
  3. Why could I not find it? Thanks man. That was helpful.
  4. 3000, do you happen to remember the Nissan model year? That sounds like a good option.
  5. Along these lines, I wonder if there is a modern smaller inline charcoal filter to put in the trunk between the tank and the atmosphere? It appears the older vent tube was located at the top of the filler neck and simply ran along the trunk wall to a hole in the floor. Similar to my old Porsche. I will have a look at the Porsche tomorrow to see how they make it work. (Healey 3000 ! We need to talk. I am shopping a Healey myself... 😉
  6. I know this is an old topic. But I could not see the answer to my question in the former threads. So here goes: I have a 1976 with the plastic fume separator in the trunk and a line that leads to the front of the car to where the canister use to be... I know the earlier cars simply vented the fumes to the air via a small hole in the trunk behind the license plate. My question: Is there any advantage to leaving the "fume separator" in the trunk and venting that to the air. Or is it best to simply run a line from the tank (filler neck) to the outside like the earlier cars. My thought is not creating a vacuum in the tank while minimizing fumes in the garage where it is parked. Just not sure if leaving the separator would actually do any good. Any thoughts on this? How did you guys do it?
  7. You are guessing correctly Chris. :-). I am doing it with a remote tach . With the idf webers, there is a balance between the the idle jet, main jet and air correction jet. So the id;e adjustment turns in and out are pretty specific. I am new to the dcoe , so learning as I go. Thanks. Yes Tod, as far as I know. I got the car with no records, but it feels pretty tame.

  9. Thanks guys. Helpful. The idf-s that I have on my old Porsche are more sensitive and very specific about the idle screw adjustment. I am not going to sweat it on this e10. It is running pretty dang good where she sits. Just trying to learn as I go.
  10. Sorry Mark. I don't know. I just got the carb and manifold from Top End Performance and simply installed it. I will get back to it on Monday and can check then. From what I see online, there is a difference in idle jet adjustment between the older dcoe and the new ones. But it is vague.
  11. I just installed a single 45 dcoe on my 76 2002. Wow. What a difference in performance. But in adjusting the idle jets, I am getting conflicting info. Usually if the idle jet has to be backed out more than 2 turns, you need to go up in jet size. This carb takes takes 2.5 and 3.5 turns to hit the sweet spots. In an online search there seems to be conflicting info. Some say the "two turn rule", others say 3 to 3.5 is the norm . My car is a 45 dcoe (153). Any info / experience?
  12. Wanted to thank you guys again. That was helpful info. I will post photos of the sidedraft when I get it done. This week I have to get back to my old IM Porsche - it's car show time of year...
  13. I was wondering what the distributor upgrade would be. On my old Porsche I went with a Magnaspark, which adjust the spark via springs and shims. Bluetooth sounds like a dream. Thanks Mark. Big Help! Another side drift off topic, but again connected to this Weber instal. With electric fuel pumps, I have used the Revolution relay, which is a relay that cuts the fuel pump off if in a accident. Anything like that in this world? Or do most simply use the rotary fuel pump without relay. (Maybe this should be a new post?)
  14. This thread brought up another question. My distributor does indeed have a vacuum (advance) hose that went to the carb. With this side draft rig, should I simply block off the vacuum line?
