1 to 2 barrel?

Ok first off I've looked at evrything on. The tech thread and it helped a little bit but didn't completely answer my questions. I've got a 71 800b with the amc 232 i6 it curently has what appears to be a a holley 1904 1 barrel that's pissing fuel and if ima replace it id like to upgrade. I know people buy the conversion plate and upgrade to the weber 32/36 but they all have the 4 bolt sinlge barrel from what I can tell and mine has just two. Do they also may have the adapter for mine but I'm not seeing it. Any inputs or has anyone done this on the 232?

Re: 1 to 2 barrel?

If you have a 1904 it ahould just have the 2 bolts, I think what you are seeing when you look at the upgraes that leads you to believe that we have 4 bolts is the adaptor is setup so you can rotate the carb. Hope that helps, I have never seen or know much about the 232's so I may be barking up the wrong tree.

Re: 1 to 2 barrel?

ok that may be..i never thought about that. Like for instance if i were to order the kit at the bottom of this page http://www.carburetion.com/weber/weberR2.asp i should be able to make it work?

Re: 1 to 2 barrel?

Ok option #2 if that adapter plate will fit then I can get the kit with the weber 32/36 or I can get just the adapter plate and I can get a stock holley 2 barrel from a 266 ih for free I beleive it was the 2300 if im not mistaken. I also think theyre about what 350cfm? Which would be much cheaper but how much better is the weber over the holley? Is it worth the extra 300 or soo bucks?

Re: 1 to 2 barrel?

The setup you are looking at at the bottom of the page ( http://www.carburetion.com/weber/weberR2.asp ), that should work for you, there are two variants of the weber 32/36, there is the weber brand (cost more) and then there is the Holley 5200, they are both the same, the holley 5200 is a clone of the 32/36 DGV, that link you had was for a DGEV... I have no idea what the difference is other than the tops have a different setup for mounting a air cleaner. The Holley from what I have read is the spitting image of the weber just made in a different factory. the CFM is 250 on both the Weber and the Holley. As Scott pointed out a lot of folks buy from Stovebolt ( http://www.stoveboltengineco.com/ ), they will sell you a Holley for $75, a 1-2 barrel adaptor for $15 and a electric choke for $12, And since the top of the carbs are wacky you cant stick a normal air cleaner on it, Stovebolt will sell you a base plate for a cleaner for $10, I got that and bought a 2in x 5in element and cut myself a top plate and it works fine. So when it comes right down to it out of the two options the Holley will be your best bang for your buck. Then like you ponted out you could go with the carb for a 266... I dont know anything about those though, a little research and you could find out though. Oh Summit has a CFM calculator that is supposed to estimate the size of carb you need, take it with a grain of salt though. http://www.summitracing.com/expertad...=calcsandtools
If you are willing to pay the big bucks, I read somewhere that Weber recomends for 6 cyl's their 38 DGES... dont know anything about that though and never heard of anyone using it.
So pretty much research everything you can and then figure out what you want to decide on doing.

Re: 1 to 2 barrel?

Go to some AMC boards and see what they do. Same engine as in a lot of AMC cars and they get blinged out just like anything else.

Re: 1 to 2 barrel?

Get a two bbl manifold off of a car or Jeep and bolt the carb directly to the manifold.

Re: 1 to 2 barrel?

I got a Carter BBD carb at the local junkyard for 20 bucks. Most carbs like this will need to be jetted down for the smaller engines to keep them from running too rich. This carb was used on most late 70 to mid 80s Dodge engines.

Re: 1 to 2 barrel?

there are several options with your 232 amc. i just got done working on one of these in a jeep which also had howell injection, intake manifold and headers. the performance was impressive and certainly comparable to a v-8.

i suggest you visit JeepForum.com and specifically the CJ forum. there is a lot of talk there about 232's. yes, the common carb upgrade there is the weber as well.

Re: 1 to 2 barrel?

I did try all the junkyards around here for a 2 barrel intake that would fit and nobody has anything. I guess thinking about it the 350 cfm might be a bit much to try and push through the single barrel carb. And it turns out this guy wants 50 for the holley 2300 that came off his 266 cuz he rebuilt it. For the extra 25 I think ill go with the carb that's been proven to work well and try to order the holley 5200. I have tried looking on other forums about the 232 aswell but I just still wanted to see what y'all might have to say considering y'all have a lot of excelent advise for which I thank you. By the way how many cfm is the holley 1904 anyways? 180 or 190 would be my guess
