How does a Weber 32/36 do at steep angles. I'm thinking about putting one on my Toy. So I guess if you could tell me how it does compared to a Toyota factory carb that would be swell <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">.


thanks,

The one I had was a piece of crap it didn't compare to the factory rebuilt one I have now. I would stay away from them they use a lot of gas too. The weber I had sputtered on hills or off camber situations. You can lower the float level on the stock carb so it won't stall on inclines. If you don't like the stock carb I would go EFI.

With the 32/36 that I had, the only problem I had was with steep up hills. I could of probally fixed it, if I wanted to, but I was just too lazy. As far a using more gas, my 32/36 ddn't, unless I used alot of the gas peddal.

Now my 38DGAS is a different story, most of which is my fault. I didn't want to send the carb in for warrienty work, so I can't complain about the idle.

I used to get about 19-22 mpg with my 32/36 and 20R combo

So everybody thinks that the 32/36 is worse on hills than the stock carb (doh!). I'm not ready to step up to EFI yet.

I wouldn't know how the stock carb would work off road. There are things the would be needed to be done to either carb for extreme angles. My Webers just like to load up on steep hills, I just keep my foot into it, and normally I don't have problems. Personally I like the Webers over stock, mainly due to simplicty. I can tear down and rebuild the Weber w/o a problem, something tells me that the stock isn't that easy.

Mine runs a lot better than my stock unit did. It does not do too well on the STEEP angles, I added a FPR and that helped a little. I suppose I could do more float work but I am too lazy. I too like how the weber is easier to work on and rebuild. I will eventually go efi with a newer 22re but that is probably a couple of years down the road. Until then, I will just live with what I have. <IMG SRC="smilies/bounce2.gif" border="0">

if you run the Weber with the float bowl towards the firewall the thing will run upside down..... ( with a fuel pressure regulator) the "normal" float bowl forward arrangement SUCKS GOING UPHILL! who cares if the truck glugs a little on steep down hills? ( if it's so steep that the carb is glugging out you should probably be on the gas anyhow.....) <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

Mine used to give me fits, but a buddy helped me re-jet/tune it and now it never misses a beat. Rolled on my side a few weeks ago and shut it off and re- cranked several times with no troubles at all [winch wouln't do it alone]. Just my .02

Mine works great, with the float towards the firewall and pressure regulator it will fun tell it flips over backwards. It also stays running while lying on the passenger or drivers side. Just tested all three position at the clean up in the Little Sluice. Wish I had pics.

I have heard about this in the past, but could never get any info on it.
All I have to do is flip my carb 180 degrees so the float bowls are pointing to the fire wall. Then re run the linkage ? Does any one have a picture your throttle linkage/ carb assembly. I am talking about a 32/36 on a 20R. Thanks! <IMG SRC="smilies/smokin.gif" border="0">

Would like some more info on this cro and airbag, this would be on a 258. It would at least make for easier tuning now that the mixture screw would be towards the front <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0">

2 1/2 psi or as low as you can get it without staving the engine for fuel and as close to the carb as possible.

running the carbs " backwards"....if the float bowl is closer to the firewall than it is to the bumper... you're there
