LOL, I'd be taking Weber Specs comments with a grain of salt. They have a reputation for being somewhat.... ahem..... "opinionated" to say the least, (looks like they were angling to sell you a new 32/36?).

I ran an XE Coon in the early 90's and the 34ADM on it started, idled and ran smoothly - a huge improvement on the stromberg carb on the XA Coon I'd had before.

 

It's hard to escape that this has been a very common swap in Aussie for decades and most use the existing 'Coon jetting. 

Classic example from the GMH-Torana Forum - these guys know their stuff.

All I took away form him was only interested in selling me a new carb and some other expensive adapter and water line kit for the manifold 

They also sell a rebuild kit for the 34 adm if they were as shit as they say why do they stock parks for them....

 

I've found nothing but good reviews about the 34adm in my research 

It can't be worse than the single barrel stromberg that I took off

He tried to sell me everything "just drop your manifold off and we'll do the rest"

I stopped listening when he was rattling off prices and it went past the $1000 mark plus gst. 

 

Based on the 'they are shit but buy our new stuff' response I'd avoid them as much as possible tbh

The following jetting, apparently gives excellent throttle response, very smooth idling and excellent pickup on secondaries.
For a stock 3.3l Crossflow Motor.

Primary Idle: 75 (70 factory fitment)
Secondary Idle: 65 (60 factory fitment)
Primary Fuel: 140 (135 factory fitment?)
Secondary Fuel: 220
Primary Air: 160 (160 factory fitment)
Secondary Air: 180 (160 factory fitment)
