Which carb??
« on: October 20, 2010, 20:40:20 »
 :undecided: :undecided:Good evening!!  Right, is it worth changing my carb for a webber?  I've been told to as the car will be slightly better on fuel, and slightly quicker?  But also someone said it'll be quicker but thirstier??  God knows??  :undecided: :undecided: :undecided:

Honestly?

Can't tell the difference.

A new Weber is a great improvement on an old Zenith. A new Zenith is a great improvement on an old Weber.

I run series Land Rovers on new webers, new Zeniths, old Zeniths and old Webers. The new are better then the old, but couldn't really put a fag paper betweent the new in terms of performance and economy. Some will tell you tht Weber 'ice up', but never had a problem with this depsite living at the bottom of the Cambrians during very cold winters.
