Carb Identification

Post by sparks » Sun Nov 15, 2020 8:58 pm

Hey guys.

I am having trouble identifying this carb, its bolted to a manifold on my 205 2.0.
At first i though it must be a Weber 32/36.

But then i noticed the electric plug on the side of the carb? And i didnt think they had this?
Anyone have any ideas what its from? or what it is? I have no history on the engine so i dont know what it came out of.

Sorry about the terrible pictures. i forgot to take some photos and these are the best i can find in my project folder.


Cheers!

Tom.

If it's a 205 engine then is it from a Sierra?
In which case, is that Pierburg carb.
Very hard to tell from the dodgy photo I'm afraid.

Your engine is a 205 block engine from a 2.0 Sierra or Granada. It is fitted with the Weber 30/34 Dfth which was the stock carb for these engines. They had an electric auto choke and had an electronic idle adjustment stepper motor which can be problematic and was driven by a small ecu sited in the engine bay near the distributor.

If it's giving you grief your best bet is to chuck it over the nearest hedge and fit a 32/36 dgv from an earlier model.

Excellent!
Yes, I was muddled up with the Pierburg carb that was on the 1800 Sierra. Not so fond memories of trying to set one up on my brother's car years ago.
