Weber Carbs on VWs

Recommended Posts

My sandrail has a 1915cc VW with dual two port Webers. The trip to Coral Pink Sand Dunes, over 6,000 feet, brought foreward a bit of a problem to the the uneducation (ME). JETTING!!!! The normal jetting can be used from sea level to 3,000 feet. Above 3,000 feet the jetting has to change one size for each 1,000 feet. So I would have had to used jetting 3 steps smaller than what I had. Thus the power & idle was Cr*p!

Had to start her yesterday. She runs great at 3,300 feet. We had a HUGE rain storm and the rail was left outside with a cover as I am out of garage space untill something is sold. Anyone want to buy a INEX Legends racecar or a 1973 DeTomaso Pantera? Went outside and she was WET. Pulled the cover so the rail could dry and started the engine, everything was fine. Left it uncovered last night to dry further but will put a cover back on today Next time it is going to rain, I will throw a tarp on also. Hopefully I will have garage space before that happens. I am going to put the Legends on Ebay and the Pantera on the Pantera forum. Siriusly if interested contact me, Legends is very reasonable (have owned for about 5 years). Pantera is pricey, more details only if siriusly interested ( have owned for 17 years).

    • Neighbors mechanical problem.

      Old guy that lives down the road is having a problem with his box side by side. It'll start and run for about five to ten minutes then bogs down and dies. It will not start up till it cools down and then it will start fine and do it again. Gauge shows not overheating and the oil and antifreeze is topped off. Any suggestions on what it can be? Just trying to help him out.

    • Hisun fuel tank vent problem!!!

      Hello once again, this time I want to bring to your attention a problem that I found out the hard way. On one of our previous trips to Dumont Dunes, my son had the great opportunity to roll his Hisun Strike 250 at very low speeds, no damage to him or the vehicle and it landed up right as well. but one thing we noticed was that fuel had poured all over the passenger!!!. Once we got back I looked at it and found the fuel tank vent was of such poor quality that it broke at the fuel tank. Not sure if it was from the roll over or just from being made from poor quality plastic. Well, I found a great long lasting repair and wanted to share it with you all. It is something that is found is pretty much most off road race vehicles. I installed a roll over valve in place of the fuel tank vent. I am including some pics to show you. In the event we roll it over once more, the vent valve will automatically shut off the flow of fuel. It has a ball valve in it and when upside down, it blocks the flow of fuel so that it can't pour out all over the persons in the vehicle and have a potential fire! It is gravity controlled. The valves are low cost at about $15 or so. Cheap insurance when it comes to safety for sure. I cleaned out the hole where the previous fuel tank vent was. I removed the fuel tank pump/filter assembly. I then drilled out the hole just smaller than the ball check valve. I was able to reach into the fuel tank to catch any plastic that the drill might push into the tank as well. I used a fuel resistant sealant on the threads as well. I used a 1/4" NPT thread fuel tank check valve with a 5/15 hose barb. This is a much better product than the OEM product. I would recommend every one install one of these for safety if they get a chance. Or at the very least inspect your fuel tank vents. No one wants fuel leaking on them in the event of a roll over.

    • Yard Sport 400 problem

      Hi been cruising the boards trying to figure out whats wrong. I have a yard sport 400. (Hisun) the motor runs strong and starts right up. I can go in reverse just fine ans back up. But as soon as i go in Drive and put any load on the transmission it kicks out of gear. I have taken off the linkage and checked the cvt belt it looks fine. Any possible idea why or could any of you point me in the right direction? Cheers!!
