Weber Carb 32/36 Install Help

The Directions that come with the Carb are kind of vague. Anyone have a link or can offer any help for the install?

Hi Ksg45,

I have made this installation a few years back on a 258 I6. Is there something specific that you don't understand about bolting it on?

LOTS of stuff here, includes some info on tuning with 4 cyl.: http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f8/we...ssion-1051137/

well I'm just new to working on vehicles, I was just confused about which vacuum hoses are required. I know that all the Emissions stuff is no longer needed. If I need a new adapter that is bolted between the manifold and carb? Things like that. The directions that came with the package were just kinda vague.

Are you doing any searches of this forum? You might want to look in Technical Write-ups on this site.

Did you get a carburetor, and now trying to install it?

Or, did you buy a "Conversion Kit" with adapter, linkage, air filter and carburtor?

If you call the guys who make the kit, or the guys that sold it to you, they would probably send you a set of instructions that SHOULD suit your needs.

As asked above, what is it you are trying to figure out?

I just need a clearer understanding of where certain vacuum lines go (which ones I need and which ones I can cap off) and I also need a better understanding of what I need to hook up the throttle cable and how to do so. I bought a kit from WeberCarbsDirect (now knowing I should have just gone with Redline as they had a more complete kit with the correct size hoses and vacuum lines pre-cut). But the instructions are just vague as it is a "general installation guide" for multiple weber carb conversion kits. Its simply too vague for a novice like myself and Its been difficult finding any good info online.

Thanks for the help

And the directions say to cut the fuel line and install the fuel filter provided, none was provided. Unless my particular model did not require one. or it is installed elsewhere that I am unaware of.
