Just fitted my newly aquired progressive webber 32/36 once the fuel got up there it fired up and ran pretty well BUT i can't drive it cos the throttle cable snapped. I'll be popping in to GSF tomorrow and pick one up then i can give it a blasting lol!

Cool. Did you sort out the throttle return spring OK. What you can find is the hole through which the throttle cable comes is a little too low, so the cable is angled up. You can get an extension (SSP sell them cheap) to bring the throttle arm down more in line with the cable hole. Or you can do what I did and use a stock carbs throttle return spring in addition to the return already on the carb. (I just hooked it from throttle up to base of aircleaner!). Get some pictures up here! You should notice a difference over a 31pict.

Here you go the Webber fitted and the new cable. Took her out for a good ragging earlier and she's good lol!


Only problem (if you can call it a problem) is the air filter just rubs the deck slightly tongue

It's rubbing because you've got an earlier decklid. You can get lower profile filters which might help depending on where it's rubbing.

Bit better than the 30pict then... Laughing

I thoucht it may have been because of the early lid. It only just rubs on the corner yeah a smaller filter would work fine.
Yeah def better then the 30 pict lol!
