    Cheap Weber on Ebay..could be a deal!

    I found this new 32/36 DGV (manual choke) on Ebay. The listing says it's for a Toyota Landcrusier/FJ40. Unless there is some real change in the casting, it should be easy to change jets and such for the Opel (if you have a tired 32/36, then you already have that stuff). It even has the fuel inlet on the correct side. I don't think the DGV can be converted to electric or water choke.

    It would be wise to get the suffix numbers off the base, though, and compare to the Opel correct Weber.

    Anyway, for a Buy It Now of $150, plus $15 shipping, a new 32/36 doesn't come any cheaper. Just make sure it is new and not 'new' rebuilt (doesn't look like it).

    "No, the motor is not in the back."

    I know it says it's new, but you know how people think.

    It also says, "Bought this carb a year ago from a guy in Montana
    for my 1972 FJ40 LandCruiser 2F motor."

    "A guy in Montana."

    Odds are he's telling the truth, but the seller may not be the guy that bought it new from a vendor.

    I'd ask for a nice close-up of the base to see if there are any washer/nut/bolt marks. If there are none, then it is new and never installed.
    "No, it's not fiberglass."
    "No, the motor is not in the back."
    "No, your friend in high school did not 'peg' his speedometer."

    Just opened up the link and looked real close at the one hole visible in the base and it looks to be virgin, as in, not previously installed. Take a look and verify that.

    It looks uninstalled to me.
    Although I have Webers coming out of my ears right now, if I had the cash I'd take a chance on it.

    no we did not bid. I was only giving a friendly comment. We sell Webers, new and rebuilt...We only bid on poorly advertised Weber carbs on ebay. and only used ones for rebuilding.


    When you use Ebay, you have to take advantage of the situation, ie Weber spelled Webber, Opel spelled Opal or Ople or whatever.

    Hi all, I'm new to the Opel world, actually new to engine restoration in general. I've been watching eBay for a Weber carb for my GT. My question is, will any Weber 32/36 DGEV suit an Opel GT, or do I need to look for something even more specific? I've seen a couple that specifically mentioned Opel in the description, and seen others that list other specific makes/models. Are they the same carb, but jetted differently? Thanks!

    You could call us for a good price on a Weber carb. Brand New. We could supply a 32/36 DGAV with water or electric choke for $320 shipped, an air filter or adapter would be another $25. You can wait for ever on ebay and try and bid, but you do not want to get into a bidding war. Thats one reason to use esnipe.com

    All the 32/36 DGEV are the same except they are jetted differently. Remember all DGEV carbs are actually DGAV and had electric chokes installed at some other place

    My parts car came with an Empi +( Weber knock off) the linkage is different than my other 32/36. Did Weber make a.vw carb? Can it be converted to work on a GT? Thx

    Is it a knock off of the Weber DFV? In other words are the primary and secondary the opposite of the Weber DGV that you have?

    George, how about some pic. of the linkage, sides all over, and # from the carb. if any ? then maybe we can answer your question, instead of just a crap shoot

    If the primary is on the side closest to the engine, it would be similar to the Weber used on Pintos. Not good for the Opel 1.9 as it could cause cyl 1 &4 to run lean. Check the numbers on the side of the base (32/36 DFV).

    An odd little quirk with cylinder temps.
    If the cylinder mixture (A/F ratio) is rich...low exhaust temps.
    If you the mixture lean...guess what...the exhaust temps will drop also.

    I had one of those Pinto carbs on my second GT. It was better than a solex but a pain to set up the first time. I remember I had to redo the linkage to make it work.

    The numbers on base 10061 32/36F ( not DFV) choke housing on drivers side. Linkage looks reversed
    (My driver side barrel opens first the the other one opens as the throttle is increased)

    GeorgeOpel if you had searched for 'Holley 5200' or 'Weber Clone' you might have found some answers to your question.

    P.S. I hope Santa brought you a computer to use for accessing OpelGT.com.
