    Your technical knowledge and understanding of complexity of modern cars is excellent. And your adaptation to modifying that carburetor linkage was excellent.

  2. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ken Kalin says:

    I think you did a great job modifying that carburetor. After all you are trained on newer fuel injected cars
    Love your channel, keep up the good work!

    Funny , I use the same brand of band aide as you . Works great .

    THAT MAY BE ONE OF THE WORST CARS I EVER OWNED. THE CAM LOBES ALL BUT DISAPPEARED IN 51K MILES. 50 K WARRANTY, SORRY SO SAD. IT HOWEVER WAS A VERY COOL LOOKING RIDE AND IF I REMEMBER, QUITE FAST WHILE IT RAN. LOOKED LIKE A MINI EL COMINO

    I started out working in a Garage when I was 13 years old back in 1978 at weekends, I progressed through the years and have worked on Motorcycles that race in British Championships. So, I say with some authority that this guy isn't a dummy, he's just not been brought up on old shit.

    Yank the engine and put a 2.2 Turbo out of the Shelby in it. I've done it in a day in my garage

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Joe Fair says:

    Curious why the carb was replaced and not rebuilt?

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Brian Falls says:

    The factory actually takes and punches the ends of the screws to keep them from backing out. That way you never have to worry about things dropping down into your intake and getting eaten

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Nunya Bidness says:

    A lot of nasty comments. Things change and items become obsolete. I have worked on cars since points and distributors and I work on modern cars with my professional scanner. Many modern mechanics do rely on the scanners too much and neglect bench testing and point to point testing. However, if you are going to drive old cars you need to be able to work on them yourself. Modern mechanics are trained to maintain modern vehicles. I give Ray credit that he is able to work the occasional old cars that come into the shop and he does a darn good job. Don't be a bitter old man (or woman.) I am 57 myself and I realize times change and technology moves on. You can't expect every mechanic to work something that was built when they were kids.

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars pipo declown says:

    Sorry, but replacing a carburetor, how stupid is that!

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jeremy Bailey says:

    The Phillips head screw driver was invented many years after the flat head and was adopted has the industry standard. Fun fact there was another screwdriver invented around the same time and is widely used in Canada. I'm probably wrong on all these facts.

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jeremy Bailey says:

    You didn't connect the thingy mabob to the doa mahicky.

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Scott Marshall says:

    Anybody bashing on this kind of work never built a custom or a race car. SOP. If you're not a car guy, you probably shouldn't be watching Ray's channel (or trolling here either), I hear there's some cool video game footage on other channels, maybe trolls would be happier in fantasy land.
    I'm a car guy and I like Ray's stuff, Eric's stuff, and Danner's stuff. Heck I even watch Tinman hotrood chainsaws, and have few powered things that haven't been modded. +1 on making it work Ray!

    interesting job. The only think I'm not personally liking is removing the spacer that should avoid the direct contact between the two moving parts, which may degrade soon over time. I might be wrong tho. I guess the best idea would've been cutting and welding the working linking piece of the new carb, to the old part, so to have the correct distribution while the clearance for the lever to move.

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dee Loc says:

    Lmao il use just the "tip" 😂😂

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bartman4800 says:

    The Weber DGEV always need to have the float level checked (and likely adjusted). Ask me how I know…. And the screws on the butterfly are staked on the backside after installation.

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars N B says:

    where are the trolls? i dont see them..

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars devildog says:

    Slotted screws were used for at least 28 years before the philip screw was made

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jeff Becker says:

    Ray for the win.

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Leonard Cole says:

    Green parts make it environmentally friendly so it’s 50 state compliant. Lol

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars john says:

    You had me laughing taking the bloody arm off the old carb. It reminds me of the crap that actually happens when you have a plan and the old stuff one cooperate. Good job. It's never easy and when everything aligns now and then you count your blessings 😂. This is custom work for sure.

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars bonza167 says:

    nice work and well done after encountering the "should"

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars MarvTV says:

    Ra-ay… 🙄

    I have wobbly drives from LO-ONG before 1987.

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Brian Smith says:

    its standard because there is another one called JIS. Japanese standard that's used over there. and the American standard is thinner than a JIS

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mythryl says:

    Aaah memories….when my 69 Fiat 125S engine seized father-in-law decided time to upgrade from single 36 downdraft Weber to twin 38 side drafts. We ended up using the brass floater from an old toilet cistern as a surge tank. Good times!

    I dont see what the trolls are getting at. This is honestly a good video. No matter what ill support this channel so please dont change or anything, let trolls be trolls

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kyler Goss says:

    Good Lord I have never seen one

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Don Lock says:

    Welcome to the world of older mechanics where carburetors were often out of whack. Carb rebuild kits were the order of the day and the dang linkages were always a pain in the ass. They will only go back one way so you might have a few do-overs!

    Modern fuel injection is wonderful in comparison but in a post-apocalyptic world you would definitely want a carb because you can't fix fuel injectors (driven by the computer); they are meant to just be replaced as needed. No parts – you're out of luck.

    Of course other old mechanical systems would also be better than newer electro-mechanical parts because humans can see & repair problems in purely mechanical systems.

    Even without a P/A world if you're stuck in the outback you definitely want a mechanically repairable vehicle (and your toolbox).

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Timothy Peterson says:

    Flat head was standard for millenia take a look at old furniture sometime.

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Timothy Peterson says:

    Green parts? Is that's AOC'S Car?

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars P Strass says:

    Ray I love your videos, but I had to stop this one. Cars have been simplified so much with the development of modern electronics and new manufacturing techniques.

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars JON THOMAS says:

    Good thing you put the lock tight on after you put the nut on! Lmfao! What a frigin hack! Lmfao!!

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jon Fletcher says:

    Ray, if you look at the other end of the two screws that secured the butter fly disc in the throttle shaft you will see that they are "staked" i.e. the ends swaged out in one or two "V" forms so the screws can NEVER unscrew and be sucked down and into the engine. Only way to unscrew them is going to be to machine off the swaged end of those two screws before trying to unscrew them.
    Seeing the operating linkages were wildly different and the new carb. instruction saying should fit with a bit of grinding or some such would have brought out my homicidal tendencies against the Weber Designers.

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Joseph Saucedo says:

    My nextdoor neighbor had one but it was the only one I have ever seen and I'm a dodge guy parts I guessing are perty rare like most dodge parts 👍👌✌️🛠️

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Graham Webb says:

    A good engineer makes things fit and work as they should a poor one just puts it back in the box and say can’t do

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Pulse Fel says:

    a single slot would be alot easier to make then a cross that has a conical shape to it. just slide the screw head through a grinder and done.

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars bill smith says:

    With you young guys, I think the art of using simple hand tools (file) has been lost.

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars bill smith says:

    Have you never pulled a carby apart before? The screws holding the butterfly plate in are rivetted on the underside to stop them coming loose.

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Stephen Mead says:

    Ah yes. Old school fuel system. Bring out the colour tune spark plug.

  45. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Roy White says:

    You’re definitely reducing engine weight. The vehicle should be faster! Lol.

  46. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ghost Fox says:

    That diamond burr part… That had me screaming "FILE IT!!!" But like ya said… The name of the game is not costing more time.
