Overhauling a 32/36 DGV or DGAV carburettor is the perfect way to get all the benefits of a brand-new carb at a fraction of the cost. Here are your Weber DGV rebuild instructions!.
The Weber 32/36 DGV and DGAV carburettors were fitted to a whole host of classic Fords, and many have since been retrospectively fitted as a useful performance upgrade. The carbs are easy to set-up and maintain, however like most things in life they do benefit from some tlc from time to time – either a service or a full rebuild. Fortunately, service kits and replacement parts such as jets, diaphragms and valves are all still readily available from the likes of Webcon direct and Weber dealers.
You may be lucky enough to only need the service kit which can be fitted without too much fuss, but for a ‘proper job’ you will need to do a complete overhaul. We took our 32/36 DGAV to carburettor specialists and Weber dealers, Northampton Motorsport for the guys in the know to show us exactly what’s involved with turning a gunked-up, 30-year old carburettor into a nice, shiny, all-singing all-dancing, overhauled unit.
