All,


The 2017 calendar is ready.  It has more than 50 pictures of club members, their cars and events.  Also, it shows the dates of events in the coming year.

I was planning on circulating copies at tonight's GT, but since that was canceled I will do that at the next GT.

Best regards,

Roger

Gentlemen, I need your help.
A buddy of mine died and his Mom asked me to clean out his junk. In the back field there is about 18 cars. I started to uncover and so far have found 2 late 70's MGB convertibles and  a Triumph GT6 and a 1500 all in very poor condition. Lord knows what else is there. My Uncle Jerry Truitt raced MG's and Triumphs in the 70's and would roll over in his grave if I junked them. They must be worth something to someone. He also has new fenders that looks like they belong to MG's.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Club Members,
Due to the impending "Storm of the Century" we have cancelled tomorrow's GT. Tried to reschedule it for the following Tuesday but the Triumph club will be there and we don't want any fist fights, so we'll have our April GT as scheduled.

Re: MGB Performance with Single Weber Carb.

Well explained George!!!

OK here's my 2 cents, if the motor is in good shape, a down draft weber can be tuned to run well, but remember it's a progressive carb, meaning one barrel is open and one opens at 60-70% of throttle, it's not a performance carb. It's a good all around driving carb. Good mpg. The problem is when the motor is starting to wear or something else is not right the Weber is not forgiving and will run like shit.

Su carbs are more forgiving when a motor starts to wear, and when properly turned run better then the Weber for spirited driving. But the SU must be looked after, like check dash pot oil, if you drive in cold weather then a minor adjustment should be done in fall, and again in the spring.

If given a choice, I would install SUs, but if no choice I can turn Weber's, but if your motor is worn out I won't waste your time or mine. If your running a 75 or later B with its stock motor with over 55 k miles on it, then putting on a Weber is a waste of money and time, due to cam failure. Most MGBs with over 65k suffer from head gasket and cam failure of some degree.

So there's my 2 cents

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.

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

There's lots of different Weber carburetors out there, so I'm not sure which one you're running.  I had a two barrel, downdraft on my 1964 B and it worked fine.  The biggest problem I had was people turning up their noses at them because they weren't the OEM SUs.   I never was able to find actual comparison data between the SUs and Weber.  Some people who had run both liked one over the other and some were on the other side of the fence.  Other than that, mine ran fine.  

Now I have a Moss (Eaton) supercharger with a single SU and it runs great.
