  • Weber trouble

    I have a 78 CJ-5 with a 258. No matter what I for adjustment, it runs rich. Time to time even black smoke. I just got a Detours Incline Equalizer to level the carb, because climbing the sand pit. When I get to the top, the exit is about vert in some spots. The carb burps and looses power at those angles. Any ideas on adjustments.
    Thanks.

      Have you lowered the float level yet? Mine had the float level set too high right out of the box.

        I have a Haynes manual for weber carb's. The 32/36 DGEV isn't in there. I went from a single barrel to a two barrel conversion with a adapter plate. It's the replacement for 1 barrel Carter. How much did you lower the floats. Do you have the same carb. Thanks for the info

          I’ve had the 32/36 and now have the 38/38. Float adjustments on both are the same. Here is a diagram of the float adjustment: http://www.redlineweber.com/html/Tec..._breakdown.htm When you hold the top perpendicular to the ground, the float should be perpendicular at the top setting also. I just pushed up on the float a little to bend the tab. That way it is set just a tad bit lower. I like mine a little lower than the stock setting. It does better off road. Hope this helps.
