Brand new Italian Weber 32 DGAV Carb

Recommended Posts

I have for sale, 1x brand new Weber 32 DGAV carburettor, it is a Genuine Italian carb, not the Spanish cack that is available.

Should be standard fitment on 1300 Crossflow GT & E models, also 1300 Sport MK1 & 2, should therefore fit most 1300 crossflow if you have the twin choke inlet manifold.

It has the Ford/Weber aluminium i.d. tag on the float chamber, it is as new (it is brand new).

Will put pictures up when I get home.

£255.00 with free postage. 

Please ask if you need more info.

 

Ta.

 

Located North Wales.

the 1300GT carb is a 32/36 DGV, that im 100% on, and std mex was same unit re jetted

I thought, but could be wrong that the DGAV was an auto choke carb for the RS2000

Are you sure all Mk1 1300GTs used 32/36s though or possibly introduced later? All our Mk1 1300GTs use a Weber 32 DFE. According to both the British and Australian manuals both list the 32 DFE as the carburettor for the 1300GT. They dont list an auto choke version in the manuals either but possibly through time they upgraded the carburettors to auto chokes or even 32/36s but it wouldn't be updated in their manuals published early in production maybe? I know with the Australian 1300GTs the 32 DFE stayed the same through its production life whereas the British ones maybe got a better carb through time that's not shown in the manual?

Where I do see a 32 DGAV appearing in Australia was with the introduction of the MK2 with the addition of Kent 1600GT engines. Apart from the Twincam all our Mk1s were 1100s or 1300s. With the arrival of the Mk2 mid 1975 came our first 1600 Kent engines for the Escort (Although they had been used in our Capris prior to that) We didn't get Pinto engines in Escorts till mid 77. So the 1600GT engine was the highest spec for the Escort from 75 to 77. Those 1600 Mk2s used a 32/32 DGAV. (Just referred to as the 32 DGAV). Which I suspect is the very carburettor caprimk1v4 has for sale.

Ford Australia never tinkered much with Engine and Carburettor specs for the Escort till they were forced to do their own thing in 1977 when new emissions regulations were introduced. Even then the carburettors were still the same models just jetted differently, but prior to that the Webers they used came as is from Ford in the UK. So these 32 DGAVs must have been used by Ford UK for something local it wouldn't be an on hand Australian only thing. What carburettor do British 1600GT Capris use out of interest?

A brand new original 32 DGAV would be a very rare item indeed and well worth that money if that is the original carburettor that your car came out of the factory with. I can say with certainty that some of our Mk2 Escorts did.

Yes your right Ray but used 32/36 DGAV 

if you look on the webcon site, the DGAV is an auto choke carburettor for pinto engines, the DGV is for the 1.3 and 1.6, which ford mainly fitted to the GT crossflow on the mk1 (uk), the DFE is in the Haynes manual, but was a very early carb uperseeded by the DGV, tbh, ive not seen a DFE in use, only the DGV, and theres no sign of support for the DFE on the webcon site that I can see, but the early GT engine had small bore exhaust, and that ceased production in 1970 for the larger bore and different manifold, perhaps that's when the carb was changed

We used to refer to the DFE as a 32 DGV and everyone knew you were just referring to a 32/32 manual choke.  I would be curious to know what cars in the UK use the 32/32 DGAV like our 1975 to 77 Mk2 1600 Escorts. The only engine to use the 32/36 DGAV here were 2lt Pinto Cortinas and Escorts.

Hi,

 

Lots & lots of interest in the carb, the little aluminium tag has 761F BA now that comes back as a 32/36 DGAV 5D carb,   but this carb on the bottom edge has stamped into it 32 DGAV 5 D and it deffo has 32mm throttle butterflies, I have a 32/36 Weber off my from new 1600 Escort MK2 Ghia Auto, the tag on that is 771F CA and that comes back as a 32/36 DGAV, the throttle butterflies on that are one of 32mm & one of 36mm.

 

It has 2  diaphragm's on it, one mechanical via a lever, the other is a vacuum operated one, and I think that is the Anti-stall device.

I assumed that all 32mm twin chokes were intended for 1300 Crossflows, and all 1600 GT Crossflows and GT spec 1600/2000 Pinto had 32/36 and jetted as per engine.

 

 

Any how, I have added some pic's.

Ford used so many variations on carbs, it is very confusing.

 

Al.
