I'm tired of playing with my carbs. Just can't get them to run the way they should, I can get them to run good for a day or two and then they start to act up. I hear a lot of other guys ditching them for the some reason. Any one know of a shop that specialises on jetting and tunning these.
I have a 4 seater Sandcars Unlimited with a 2276, dual 44 IDF's linked.

Thanks in advanced.

when you say they act up? what do you mean? do they start missing at idle etc or what?
i got dual 48 idas on my buggy and they do good. never had them apart.

Here this article should help you out.

Also are you using a Flow Meter to tune them?

I built a lot of VW race engines in the late 70's and loved Weber carbs. There is a learning curve to dial them in, but once you figure it out there great. I was one of the lucky few during that era as I went to school with the Gene Berg family, who during the 70's was the leader in VW racing and aftermarket development.

There still around in Orange. Although they are moving to Ecommerce you might want to give them a call and see if they can help you out.

They start missing at idle or dies out, there's like a dead spot at take off so I need to stay on the gas pedal to get going I just can't cruise at idle out of first gear.

I've lost count on the times I've syncronized, taken the link apart, cleaned and blew out the jets, and needle jets, have the air fuel screw at 3/4 turn out, replaced fuel filters ect,ect.

Check out cbperformance.com They have a fuel injection set up that bolts on in place of carbs. i used this set up on my 2180 when I got tired of 48 IDA problems. Real simple and works perfect.

hey if all else fails you could always make a trip out here to riverside there is a company right off the columbia exit on the 215 right by the 60 and 91 freeway there called car craft those guys have built and tunned so many motors for me for my buggies. car craft is probably the best sand rail and buggy place in all of southern california i have never had a problem with anything they have ever done for me
