I thought Swatson 454 wanted this to be a set up/tunning thread!, Are we going to jump to main circuit soon?

Sorry guys, I've been frying other fish and burning other bridges lately. Sure, whatever you guys want to jump into next.

Of course, we haven't touched on the effects of the fuel level being too high or too low in the bowl yet. That should probably come before getting into the mains, IMHO.

The Weber 32/36 will work perfectly fine when you tune it. I used to have the hesitation problem but once I took the time and learned how to tune my carburetor I couldn't be happier with how it runs. If you would like to learn to tune your 32/36 just ask, we'll point you in the right direction.

It turned out that my ignition Mod was bad. Causing the issue. But it works great now. swatson and Mcmud helped with the linkage issues and tuning.

I have tuned a few 32/36DGEV on the Jeep. Most (95%) of the time the rich appearance is due to the throttle plate being opened too far, more than 1 1/2 turns in and reading vacuum at the "S" port, or the vacuum advance ported vacuum source. This throttle plate is then exposining the enrichening holes at idle brings in allot of fuel at idle that doesn't burn clean and soots up your plugs, exhaust etc.
I would look at your choke plate to insure it is open as previously stated and check your initial carburetor settings. Do you know how far in your speed screw is set? Do you know if you are reading any vacuum at the ported "S" vacuum source? Where do you find the "LEAN Best idle" with your mixture screw? Wher have you set your inital timing? Let us know, there are some people here who know the intricact details of how the Weber works that will be more than happy to help.

Weber 34

I have the Weber 34 DGEC and discovered that all of the inner walls of the float bowl had become "blistered" (for lack of better word) causing a thin, cracked layer of metal to "bubble" out away from the wall and interfere with the float. This caused all kinds of strange problems as you can imagine. Not starting; starting and then dieing immediately; poor running; stalling on hills; flooding...etc, etc. I chipped the bubbled and blistered metal out, allowing room for the float to...float, and she runs like a champ now.

My problem may be unique and/or confined to the foreign manufactured Weber carbs but I felt it needed addressed in case it helps other Jeepers.

There's also a well researched write up on the Weber 34 running rich and the proper jets to use here:

How old is your carburetor? I'm sure Solex will warranty a real defect. Ussually this is the "tinning" or sacraficial coating on the metal for corrosion control. Whith the Ethyinol fuels, I am sure we will start seeing this in many areas of the fuel delivery systems. See if you can get it exchanged through the Solex/Weber dudes.

Nice job on the avatar! Seems pretty fitting with my cousin doing his third tour in Afganistan. And please, for the love of God, from one BLS fan to another, stop linking that propaganda to this thread! Please!
