On offer is a Weber DGV Carburettor, a type fitted as original equipment to many of the Ford cars of the 1970s. They also make ideal replacements for the temperamental Solex DIDTA carburettor fitted to Opels of the same era.

Unlike the original Solex carburettor, with the Weber DGV model you have full control over the choke for easier cold starting and improved fuel consumption. It is a compound carburettor with a small bore section for economical running and a larger bore which opens progressively for full power when you need it. This combination means that you get the best of both worlds; a boost in both performance and economy too.
Most importantly spares are relatively cheap and plentiful, making a cinch of servicing and modification. You can even install the Weber DGV carburettors with the original equipment air cleaner, assuming you can source the correct oval adapter plate, which is not included in this sale.

I don't know much about the history or parentage of this particular carburettor, it was bought off eBay a while back to keep on the shelf as a spare. It looks like it has had the main gasket and accelerator pump gaskets changed at some point. The body and chokes are clean and grime free.

I have run a couple of cars with salvaged Weber carburettors in the past and have never had any problems with them. Like the Fords they were originally fitted to, they are; simple, robust and reliable technology and can be re-jetted to suit different engine sizes. I would always recommend getting these units stripped, cleaned and rebuilt before use, but it's your choice.

Only the one item is available, it is in fair to good physical condition, all the linkages are present.

You can still buy this sort of item new for around £200, so I have priced it to sell at £49 delivered to a UK address with easy payment by PayPal. I am located in South London should you wish to inspect and collect it. Obsolete GM spares are not exactly plentiful in the UK, stocks are limited and I will not be replacing them, so don't hang about if this is what you need.
