A gentleman from Scotland, UK contacted us about restoring the original Carburettor on his Mk1 RS2000
The car was undergoing a full, ‘concours’ ground-up restoration so everything had to be perfect!
This carburettor has a water-choke/autochoke mechanism and is of the two-stage, progressive, downdraught type. Good performance with reasonably good drive-ability and fuel-economy.
The choke-mechanism is the most intricate part of this carburettor – also the most troublesome.
Thankfully the carburettor in question was in relatively good condition (despite being 40 years old!)
So, as soon as we received it – We got straight to work on it!
Here are some photos of the carburettor and dis-assembly:
The carburettor was complete, and in working order.
Careful dis-assembly was now on the cards…
And here are the carburettors dismantled..
Alloy body, top cover, pump housing, auto-choke spring housing, venturis etc are all ready for vapour-blasting.
All steel fasteners, levers, springs & nuts are ready for yellow zinc-plating treatment.
Brass throttle valves, jets, emulsion tubes and plugs are ready for acid-cleaning and polishing.
Throttle valve spindles, return springs etc.. are ready for chemical blacking/phosphating.
After all parts have been inspected and are suitably clean and free of any plating burrs or sediment – Rebuilding begins:
And that is one original, Italian Made WEBER 32/36 DGAV CArburettor restoration in the bag 🙂
Carburettor was shipped back to the customer in Scotland, ready to be bolted on to a freshly rebuilt 2.0 Ford OHC ‘Pinto’ engine in his Mk1 Ford Escort RS2000
Ready for some classic Ford RWD spirited driving up in the Highlands!
