Just overhauled three (3) Weber 45 DCOE type 152 carbs this weekend.

Piece of cake compared to writing engine management software

Jet Hot coating of headers should be completed and returned this coming week. Looking forward to putting it all back together next weekend.

While this set is fitted to my Healey, they would look pretty nice on a 3.0 CS too!

Why yes I surely do! I had a 40 DCOE on my Mini(not much bottom end) and a pair on my 510.Great carbs could adj. everything,once set up properly took almost no fiddling after.I had a pair of similar sidedraft Solexes on my 2002ti,not as effective.---btw thats alot of carb for that Healy but as a racer should be fine,you should have tons of fun!

Unfortunately, I neglected to take a picture of them before they went out. I had coated them myself using Techline's Black Satin Thermal Barrier about five or so years ago. The surface had rusted through the coating and they looked like any other set of old rusty headers.

The new ones would be perfect if not for the areas where the surface is pitted. Note to self: in the future, send headers to Jet-Hot before use (but after trial fitting)!

OMG!!! YES!!!!!

Had a synced pair of 35s on my Alfa Romeo Spyder round tail. Best carbs ever made and not the headache everyone said they were, all you had to do was follow the sync instructions as written and use the simple vaccuum balancer (Unisyn) specified. 10 minutes later you were done and unless some idiot (dealer or garage knuckle head) touched them they stayed in tune for a complete oil change cycle (3500mi.).
