    Default Wanted: Single or Two Weber 40DCOE

    As per title, I'm looking for either a matching pair of Weber 40 DCOE's or a single one to match my current one - 40 DCOE2. Serial or production # is 17194.
    MUST be Italian made.

    I have a pair of genuine 42 DCOE's that I'm willing to part with that I pulled of a 17G many moons ago. I can find out the chokes and emulsion tube sizes tonight as they may have been down sized chokes.

    Thanks for the feedback Jason....I believe I may have sourced a pair, but will let you know if it falls through.

    Hi Mr Nauli,

    I have dug up something I knew I had somewhere in the shed, a Haynes Weber manual, printed 1980.
    Good info on all Webers including DCOE. Hundreds of examples of choke, venturi and jet sizes for various OE installations, also conversions - only Renault listed is an R12 Gordini 2 x 45DCOE conversion - but plenty of other basic settings (sample photo).

    If you don't have one and would like to borrow for a while, you know how to contact me.

    EDIT: I went further down in the shed pile and found my box of brass/alloy GOLD, collected over 50 years - the sign of a mis-spent youth! Many, many Weber jets, a few venturis, and 3 x 45DCOE carbys in various condition. And some air filters. I must do something with them - like sell it all!

    It's a good read Bowie. I've learnt a few things about the DCOE's and Webers in general.
    There were a few added notes for engine and Weber setups I had to keep safe and not loose in this book. It belongs to an AF member. I should have photocopied them...damn

    Whilst we are sharing the knowledge, a google search hit this;

    http://mobyfleet.ru/files/files/Webe...r%20Manual.pdf

    The Haynes Techbook - Weber Carburetor Manual

    Interestingly, also includes SU's and Zenith Strombergs

    Now what would somebody want a manual with Zenith, Strombergs and SU carburetors in it ????????

    The last Zenith carb I saw was flying over the neighbors fence, and SUs are for Pommie junk.......

    A single 1.75 SU can out perform a DCOE Weber!

    Twin SU’s off a mini used to be a performance upgrade on dauphines and Floride’s etc back in their day.

    This thread seems to be going to new places...a bit like Start Trek!
    So being the thread starter, I will get on the band wagon too....re Zenith Strombergs, I owned an LC Torana GTR XU-1 back in the 70's and it had 3 of them....and they were fine...it was a great little car and one that turned my attention away from larger cars to small compact cars with high performance engines.
    Re the Webers, my two new 40 DCOE's arrived yesterday...the first piece in the puzzle of a proposed new engine for my A110...to be built by Monsieur Gecko. When it's done, the current V85 complete or various bits (eg single 40 DCOE and manifold, extractors) will be up for sale.
    Ray just needs to finish that pesky A110 for Sam, get John's R17 engine out of the way ASAP and then get on with mine (no pressure)!

    I don't know about S.U.s. All the minis in the N.Z. Mini Sevens championship are equipped with a sidedraught Weber or Dellorto, although S.U.s are optional.

    And only have two variables to tune.

    The springs (which practically never change)

    The needles.

    A properly set SU in good nick is a bonza carby

    Never worry about choke sizes again , use a SU

    No PRESSURE at all..............!!!

    One step in front of the other, and you get there.

    The Alpine can stand for a while, started putting windscreens in today and the rubbers have deteriorated badly off the car so I wait for windscreen rubbers. Ordered this afternoon.
