Can I borrow emulsion tubes and idles

PostPost by: LaikaTheDog » Sun Jun 12, 2022 9:40 pm


I am trying to get a pair Weber dcoe 151 back to factory baseline.

I have spent a small fortune on idle jets, emulsion tubes and jets but still struggling to find the correct combination. (Although I now have a collection !)

I am looking to borrow

4x emulsion tube F34
4x idle jets 55F17
4x emulsion tube F41
4x idle jets 55F21

These are the last two combinations I have not tried.

And if you have them;
4x main jets 135 or 139
4x air correctors 210

If they work the way I am hoping I will buy my own ! Please let me know if you can help.

I can help by advising you to go and get it all set up professionally on a dyno. Once it is set up you can then sell your collection of different sized jets as they will no longer be needed.

If you are in North America, you could join sidedraftcentral where there are lots of users. The group is run by Keith Franck (a retired physicist) who is both helpful and knowledgeable.

Hope this helps,
