i have a bloody busted a** weber on my run-about 6 cyl f100, and ya think i can get it to run right..... not likely!!! it runs fat some times, then runs to lean.... then splutters heaps, i've tried the all the way in and 2 turns out theory, no good.and seems to run sorta all right at 4 turns out, go figure!!! has any one got any ideas???? and yes if the problems persist a holley will be bolted on,........ underneth it will have a 351 also.... :x

yep one word. HOLLEY
i got the s**t with my weber also.. useless piece of crap

they are supposed to be far superior to a holley, but my fuel consumtion went from 20L/100 to about 9L/100 on the freeway and the engine feels better, more torque etc.. go holley.. never look back

i can't understand why you guys don't like them. i've never had any troubles
with a weber carb. they are simple to tune and easy to get parts for. beats a holly any day.

just remember if it not clean and has air or fuel leaks no amount tunning will get it right.

Wouldn't you be better off to get a 350 Holley instead of a 320? Holley's are way better than a Weber. The give more power but on the other hand may use a lil more fuel that a weber, seeing that both throttles open at the same time.

In regards to getuted's post, i think you would need at least a 4 barrel for a 351, compared to a 2 barrel one for a 6 cyl.
