WOT falling flat

Post #1 by Linear Six » Thu Aug 15, 2019 4:23 pm

I kindly ask for your advice/help in either setting up my Weber 38 or find a new carburetor that will better suit my application.
As everyone else, I'm trying to get the most out of my car.

This is my current setup....
- 67 mustang with a 200 .030 over and block height is .010
- Clifford 272 cam advanced 6*.
- Vintage inline Aluminum Head, no porting performed, Freshly installed this past month
- Weber 38 DGES carb - 50 Idle jet, 160 Main Jet, 210 Air correction jet. Idle speed 3/4 turns in (verified visually that the transition holes are not exposed and no vacuum at 830 RPM idle) idle air mixture screws out 1.65 turns each
- Tremec 5 speed manual transmission 9" organic clutch
- DSII Distributor recurved locally- Initial timing 22*, Mechanical advance 20* with total approximately 41-42* without vacuum advance. All in at 2550 RPM. I plan on purchasing a new distributor from Bill in the near future that will have a better curve.
- MSD 6AL2 Ignition Module
- 1.65 Yellar Terra roller rockers,
- clifford dual header and exhaust
- Rear end is 3.20
The car runs great at idle and above 2000 RPM pulls hard.
The issue is the car fall on its face at WOT from 0 MPH or anytime i go WOT below 1500 RPM. Not sure if its a cam issue, timing or jetting.

any help is greatly appreciated.

(edit: nice setup, looks like fun, I'm jealous of ur VI head =)
That is a lot of advance! I've done some of that, but not the Cam. If you're sure it can handle it, go for it.

From what I ve learned here, the best bet for setting up new stuff is choosing 1 thing to dial in at a time. General workflow:

1) Be conservative on everything and get it running smoothly from top to bottom
2) pick something to improve and work on that (e.g. advance)
3) correct cascading effect (advance affects carb, etc)
4) Drive, debug, get running smoothly again
5) Repeat

Hi, I don't have a lot of experience with that kind of setup but it seems like a lot of ignition timing and not enough accelerator pump. Just my guess. Good luck

I am not familiar with Weber carbs. But, I am running 18 for timing. 22 does seem a little high.

Ported or Manifold vacuum? Can you change the accel shot on Weber's?

Here is some good info : https://www.racetep.com/manufacturer/ca ... carbs.html

I have always liked the Holley 07448. They seem easier to tune. (Bill, has a Holley for sale.) Or just dump the carb and get a Sniper or FiTech fuel injection.

Carb is sold.
Yes your total centrifugal advance is too high.
You need to get it recurved for your combination, or purchase one of my DS11's

Thank you for the responses so far.
The vacuum is ported off the carb. The accelerator pump to my knowledge is fixed and the the jet is at it's max at 70.
i agree that the 22* is high when i set the timing down to 18* the idle goes very low and the Webers are very particular on how the idle speed is set. When i test drive it at 18*, it idles low and from mild to heavy acceleration the car pops and stumbles bad.
Bill what a good initial and total timing that i could perhaps try, that will allow me to set up carb?

Thank you again everyone

I would get rid of the Weber & install a small Holley 4 barrel or an Autolite 4100.
If you go that route you will need 6-7# fuel pressure.
You need to run manifold vacuum to the vacuum advance. Email me so i can more info & talk with you.
