I need to buy a new carb for my 72 opel gt. What do you all recommend? The carb that I have is a weber 32/36 dgv, but it is shot. It is just easier to buy a new one then to worry about trying to fix. any recommendations on name brands and models?

rebuild

It is very hard to "shoot" Weber DGV carbs! Usually they can be rebuilt to near new with a carb kit. The main wear area is the throttle plate shaft but the shaft and teflon bushes can be replaced.
Carb kits can be obtained from Weber specialist places like Pierce Manifolds or even at VW "Bug" shops.

A 6 pack of OMs to Colorado took a bit longer with rebuild kits. Jets, air horns and fix it parts took less than a week. Oh the prices are hard to believe. I think I'm still under 500 bucks to Alpha1750 for everything. Last I saw was a rebuild for a 32/36 was 9 bucks and pieces parts are often tossed in for free. Tell him your an Opeler and he will know.

What is this

Alpha1750 is that a dot com address or somthing else. Sure I'm broke this month but I still want a webber for my GT. So point me in the right , or even left direction, and I can find out how much I need to budget. Besides it is too darn hot to work on the GT now, maybe when it drops below the 100's I can really work on her.
Thanks
Shawn

"alpha1750"

That is a seller's "handle" on eBay - click on the link in Otto's post and that will take you to his eBay page with heaps of Weber info.
If you do a search for the seller "alpha1750" on eBay it will report back to you his present "for sale" items om eBay. Gabrielle (sp?) also deals direct with Opelers and is extremely trustworthy. He is based in Italy and salvages Weber/Del Orto/Solex etc carbs plus provides rebuild kits for them.
He ships quickly to most anywhere around the World.
There ia an add for him in the "For Sale" section on this site.

Last time I asked about a 32/36 he didn't have any. With the demise of Weber his prices have climbed a bit but nothing like here in the states. I've heard reports that he has connections in other countries and may be able to point you to what you want. Let's see, Gene, Tom, Keith, Dean, Jim and I have all had great experiences there. It never hurts to ask.
