Hi folks, does anybody know of a webber specialist as in someone who is old akool and can strip them down rejet them etc? There used to be an excellent place in Lincoln called expert test and tune but sadly he has retired.

I bought a second hand Weber 38 DGAS off a chap on this forum about 12 months ago & sent it here

Made a real nice job of refurbing it, I cant tell you if it works as I bought it as a spare so its not been fitted, hopefully never. drop him an e-mail or call him, he was a very helpful chap to deal with

Where are you based?

There's also Southern Carburetters in Crawley, they are a Weber agent and will refurb most stuff. I had some Strombergs rebuilt by them and they were amazing.

Some great links there as I was reading that the new carbs that are made in Spain are causing problems so a rebuild is the better option . :beer:

I bought a brand new one from a very reputable UK dealer when mine was undergoing its little cough, err polish up :shock: , cough , no slight on them intended.
It was brand new & regardless of which mixture or adjustment screw was wound all the way in or out, it made bugger all difference, seller was fine about it & I returned it for a full refund.

Put a few new bits on the original 1981 carb & it was fine so I would always recomend refurbing an existing original one where practicle
