Hi folks we have a Weber carb as above for our 95 project. We suspect it needs some professional attention as despite having a kit fitted the accelerator pump isn’t working. We have suspicions re the small jet mounted in the diagonal section at the bottom of the float chamber and the tube for the pump. However we are very much on the edge of our expertise. Does anyone have any bright ideas or know anyone who could refurb it please?

You can get service kits for them from Webcon and similar places.

START LOOKING HERE

I did the 28/36 on Rose's car last year, got a kit with all the right genuine parts and stripped it down, cleaned and polished everything I could...blasted all the jet orifices with carb cleaner and used copper wire to poke through any that were clogged. Seems to work well now, I just need to finish sorting the linkage out.

Cheers Alastair,we bought a linkage kit of parts from eBay. Birmingham made and was a box of rods and joints. Better value at £45 than individual rods and joints.

If I buy gaskets (I normally make them myself) I usually get them from Fast Road Cars in Newport, South Wales. Still need to draw up a 34ICH gasket kit for my website, I have the templates but need to find some time to get it done.
