Might want to reconsider your Weber Carbs pricing, when in FACT...NEW Webers are CHEAPER than your asking price for USED ones in need of being rebuilt & shaft bushings needing replacement!...Mark

Gee, thanks guys for talking down my listing! :roll:
Regardless, if one wants to buy new or cheaper, go right ahead.
If one wants to buy good used original equipment, please consider these. An "asking" price is not necessarily the final sale price. Feel free to make an offer. Prices can always go down, but they rarely go up. You've got to start somewhere...

Yours did and it made me laugh, pity you deleted the comment!

FWIW the newly manufactured webers might have features like the idle by pass bleeds but they are not anywhere as well made as the originals, the tolerancing is all over the place, not as bad as some of the stuff coming out of India but the ones I used in the late 90's were pretty rubbish and would often shake to pi?ces. On another thread someone spoke of a new throttle spindle being a loose sloppy fit in the bearings, mine were like that, they were sealed bearings but air could get in through the slack, the original type with leather washers would remain sealed if the bushes had the same amount of play but that amount of wear would only occur after hundreds of thousands of miles, not straight out of the factory

And then there are those for whom originality is important.

Once again I add the proviso that my experience and opinions are very old, things may have changed, I live in hope but I rarely see things getting better and the modern generation of so called engineers with their CAD and CNC machines dont seem to understand the concept of tol?rances or control of manufacture, they give themselves away the minute they open their mouths saying "this machine makes things spot on"

I'd certainly pay more for a good pair of 18s than a new set....they are right for our cars!

Be thankful that you don'e need a set for a Ferrari 375 :shock:
