Weber 34 DGEC

I just ordered this carburetor from Quadratec.com. It is the Weber 34 DGEC. I sent an email to weber and they highly recommended this model for my 1984 CJ7, 4.2L 258. Any input on the installation or does anyone have it? How do you like it?

I'd say you probably made a fine buy, though junkyard hunters may disagree. I have the 32/36, and it is a far better performer than the Carter - as the Nevada mountains could testify to, if they weren't extremely laconic rock. You'll be scrapping the "computer" and much of the vacuum crap, save the advance to the distributor. My carb still runs a bit rich for my 258 ( at 4000 to 11000 ft, though), so I think yours will be even better. Update the thread when you have it in so I can be even more envious!

I have the Weber as well and it works great out of the box. No comparison to the Carter.

Are you asking for install guidance? Do you have the new carb yet? I'm confused.

Install guidance. I just ordered it from Quadratec on Saturday. I would think that it will be here soon. Any information for the install would be great.

If ya don't mind too much, you should hunt through this forum on the install. I remember seeing some super diagrams and pictures here. It's been three years since I did mine so I can't say I'd be able to walk you through. I do remember the joy of pulling the old 'puter out, though. That and the massive gutting of vacuum lines - something I did because I have no smog requirements and have no plans of reselling it.

Good luck!

I have no emissions here either and I will never sell mine either. Thanks for the input. I have done some searching and just did not see anything about the Weber 34 DGEC. Thanks again.

You have no idea how gratifying ripping out all the wires related to the computer is.

I tossed a ton of money down a rathole trying to first make the BBD work then trying to make the Weber run with the computer still hooked up. I have no idea why I was trying such a thing. Some odd need to be different I guess.

Unless I am real confused again, the Weber 34 DGEC will hook up exactly the same as 32/36. The diff in carbs is the size, yours being more reasonable for the 258. Just make sure you label what you are taking off before you get too crazy hacking away. What you'll see is that everything that is not used on the Weber can be trashed.

FYI, I haven't messed with jetting since install - worked out of the box - but I am running a bit rich here at 4000 ft.

Not sure if anyone is monitoring this thread but I have a few questions about the Weber 34 GDEC install myself.

1. Where does the corrugated TAC line go?

2. What's the best way to get rid of the double pulse air system? Is it necessary? There is no place for it to connect on my breather cap and I'd rather not mod two holes into it if the system isn't necessary to engine preformance.
