    • Watched a couple Steve ,love the GT70 concept ,watch some more tonight
    • Thanks Ray. The poor idling and stuttering acceleration are exactly what I experienced with the DGV version I tried a number of years back. I thought getting rid of the auto choke would be better at the time but I got a host of other problems instead. I put it either down to quality or the fact that it has no anti stall device that was somehow affecting idle and the stutter. I was assured that this was more an emissions required device rather then needed for smooth running but I could never get it to run smooth and that was with all standard the jetting out of an original that had just come off the car so there was absolutely no difference to the jetting Spanish one clearly without anti-stall device An Original with anti-stall device Clearly the place where the anti-stall device goes is still in the casting but I don't think they can be made operational as the place for the vacuum pipe is completely filled in and I would guess the fuel galleries for the pump itself haven't been opened up either. The Standard fuel return is also a bit bizarre on the originals but that doesn't bother me too much compared to the Spanish ones as you can see the original has a feul return that sticks straight out whereas the Spanish ones are angled down. The extra bizarre part is that you can see there is provision for the return line outlet could have been angled down if they had wanted it too. I never understood what that was about! The other brass outlet that you see there in the images is probably one that you guys haven't seen before. That was for the Australian emission devices to be attached so that can be removed and blocked now. By the sounds Ray of Im going to have to find someone competent to rebuild this thing with a host of new parts like you did. I'm annoyed the one on the car with the sticking secondary problem wasn't picked up when I had it done professionally. The one that was swapped off the car in the pictures above its secondary is still smooth as silk and you can barely feel it when the secondary engages.
    • absolute junk mate, steer clear, fitted 3 of the 32/36 for the 1300GT, all 3 suffered the same problems, poor idling, stuttering acceleration and lack of power, in all 3 cases the answer was to revert back to the original carb after re building with new webcon parts, this cured the problems, making no doubt that the new ones are no good, after contacting the supplier, he admitted that the new carbs weren't tested on escorts, they were tested n Toyotas, and then jetted slightly different for the ford, but no tests carried out, as the mods were not done by weber, and they would need setting upon dyno to the car, he promised me the money back on all 3, but refused on 2 because the original ford washers had marked the bodies they look nice, but that's as far as the niceties go
    • After a box full of old 32/36 DGAV I have been tinkering with to keep an original Weber on the car I decided through another thread to just bite the bullet and get a new one. I would have done this previously as the there were previous doubles on the quality of the Spanish made ones. Myself included as I tried a manual choke one that would never idle properly a number of years ago. Having just spoken to the Australian importer of them he did admit to some quality issues with the early transfer to Spain but now that's a thing of the past. So I thought I would open a discussion how people have found them? Im specifically curious about 32/36 replacements naturally but more than happy for this to be a broader discussion about all types and Spanish Webers in general. So what have you guys tried and what do you think? I noticed some design differences between the original ones that came on the Escort and the Spanish ones for sale now and will post some images. (such as the fuel return being in a slightly different spot)  
    • Hi there. I've just emerged from spending two years writing a book on classic Fords of the 70s, 80s and 90s. It's been exhausting but it has been awarded Book of The Month in the world's two most prestigious car mags, C&SC and Octane last month. Not bad for a book on Ford in that rarified world. I've just had time to start uploading some of the book's material that I intend sharing here. First up - videos. This link has six videos for each decade of Ford design. If, like me, you're into the artistry of design and love seeing Ford's original sketches of the cars back in the 60s, 70s, 80s, and 90s then sit back enjoy. I spent hours making these (well my wife did) and they are great fun to watch. I hope you enjoy them!   Steve
