32/36 dgv weber issues

Recommended Posts

Brought a used weber 32/36 dgv and have rebuilt, rejetted and put in appropriate emulsion tubes for my 1300 Kent xflow but the bugger won't start. I've noticed the diaphragm for the power system is also stuck in and won't return outward for some reason. I'm sure another strip down and rebuild would rectify it but I'm keen to know what else is out there that would fit and work (maybe better) for this? Anyone use any other carbs?

Agree. Car should 'run' on almost any carb if everything else is ok. Ignition timing etc ok?

If it has a mechanical fuel pump and been sitting for a while it will take some (a lot) of cranking to fill the bowl. 

Also if your ?acellerator? Pump is not put together propely you are wasting your time. Whip it off and sort it out. 

While its off recheck everything. Set the idle mixture screw to 2 turns out and the idle speed screw to 1 turn in from just touching. Fill the bowl with about 10mm of gas then put it back on.

Cheers guys. Yeah so sorted pump issues... But I'm almost certain it's jet related now. With the fact it's backfiring through the carb I'd assume it's too lean. Anyone have a idea what the correct jetting/emulsion tube setup is for a 1300 Kent with a 234 cam in it?

Are you sure its carb related? Have you sprayed some Engine start in the carb?

Yeah pretty much everytime I try starting the bloody thing...

Yeah so ignition is set bang on. And the carb has no mixture screw. I assume that it came off a cortina pinto and I've tried setting it for my needs. Not aure where to go from here

Timing from manuals for a Kent will need to be adjusted for today's fuels regardless but they're a good starting point.

Back firing is indicative of a lean condition. But also too much advance. And your sure that new cam is lined up right?

Does it run with some throttle at all? Or on the easy start or a squirt of gas in the manifold?
