My midget has a side draft weber.
It ran lousy until George Van Horn set it up properly.
The problem as I understand it, is that webers are primarily for racing and operate best at high revs.
George installed a smaller intake venturi  (not sure this is the right word) and a couple other adjustment.
It now runs great.

Roger,
Contact George Van Horn. He has years of knowledge tuning MGBs.

Webers Suck......Get your hands on Dual SU HIF's, They were what the home market (England) GT's had installed.....You can score a set on E-bay
People don't know how to tune them so they install Webers.......Contact Joe Curto in Astoria Queens NY......He is the Local SU Expert, and can assist you on rebuilding them.......................just my thoughts...........Gerard🚁

All,

I'm looking at a nice 1971 MGB GT.  It has a single Weber.  Does anyone have experience with the car performance with this especially compared to alternatives like dual SUs?

Thanks,

Roger
