Weber 32/36 Power Valve
If you've read other threads on carbs, you may have noted I have an issue with my Weber 32/36 draining out and having to be pumped full-up if it sits for more than a few hours. Anyone familiar with this carb know how much of a pain it might be to get to the power valve to clear it or check/replace the diaphragm? I suspect its got something fouling it or a minor hole in the 'phragm. I know that the power valve is not part of a rebulid kit - the design apparently doesn't fail enough (except for me
) to warrant inclusion. I've seen the diagram and the power valve assembly is a spring-thingy that may be jammed with grime, broken spring, or have a bad 'phragm.
Appreciate any knowledgeable responses, or wild-azz guesses!
