I meant what is his user name here. I got my kit from Carbs Unlimited, which claim they are genuine made in Spain Weber carbs and are marketed as Redline conversion kits.

And they are genuine Weber carbs. That's where I got my 32/36 also, CarbsUnlimited.com.

I have to admit, I needed to do some jetting on the Weber 32/36 to get it run well with my mostly stock engine that is only bored .030" over. I think the primary was changed to 1.75mm or 1.80mm Airjet and the secondary was upped to around 1.65 or 1.70mm Airjet, can't remember. Also, upped the 1.45mm main fuel Primary & Secondary, but a wideband A/F meter was used during tuning that I left plugged in for a month while driving around to see what combo gave me the most efficient readings.

Here is an update.

After talking with Tom at Red Line, and walking through settings on the carb the decision was made to purchase the 38.

Once the 38 is installed I will be sending the 32/36 back for them to look at for problems as all the settings appeared to be correct.

I will let you know how it turns out.

My plan is to also purchase a 38 DGES in the near future. If it works out being a better swap for you Glenn, I'll probably follow suite and purchase sooner.
I'll wait to see how you make out.

Good deal, Glenn. I think you're going to notice a huge improvement. If not, then you may have a problem elsewhere.

Did you ever check your plugs? I'm curious if they look lean, as you suspected.

No I did not check the plugs, it has been suggested there is a problem else where as nothing could be found set wrong on the 32/36.

I just do not have the time to play with it and am throwing a part at it. Usually that does not work out well.

Fair enough. Do you remember what your plug gap is set at and have you checked the inside of the cap for evidence of arcing? Would you refresh my memory on your ignition system?

With only 1800 miles I have not pulled or looked at anything. gap was 35, stock distributor with an MSD box.

Problem is not a miss, upper RPM miss is usually spark, this is it is just dead.

Yep. Wishful thinking

The next thing that comes to mind is the advance curve. I'd like to see a couple of spark plugs when/if you get a chance or even want to mess with it.

Heck, I had my plugs out 3 times in the first 2000 miles. But then, I don't have a rocket car sitting in my garage, either.

Glenn, when you get your 38 installed, and have an hour or so to tinker with it, jump on here and we'll have that thing rippin'.

If you haven't seen this video, I'd be shocked, since I've spammed a lot of threads with it, but here's what my 258, with a Weber 38, Team-rushed ignition, and a few tweaks to the advance curve ran like.


That was with 98K miles on the engine. I bet yours will run even better.

Here's another "what if":

The only time my 38 ever layed down on me was when I was doing some float setting tests and set it clear out to 7/8ths. Have you checked your float setting?

18mm if you have fancy shmancy tools or a smidge over 5/8ths if you're a barnyard bum like me when held vertically with the float resting on the needle.

Just to demonstrate a steady, consistent manifold vac pressure. If the needle flutters, or jumps, or is consistently low, then it's a sign of other problems.

I think a vacuum gauge is an essential tuning tool for these heaps.

Vacuum is very underrated, tells you lots of things
