conversion to weber carbs

I have an 84 spider and would like to remove the fuel injection and convert to weber carbs. Is this difficult and does anyone know where I can get the carbs ?

changing to Webers

You have several choices in this switch. I changed over my 69 GTV to Webers about 2 years ago and have been very pleased. You can buy a conversion setup from one of the suppliers. (IAP, Centerline, etc) or purchase carbs and other items to put together your own kit. I would strongly suggest that you get in touch with you local ALFA mechanic to get some good help and suggestions from someone who will truly know how to do the job correctly. Mine rebuilt the carbs I bought from another club member including the manifold and some of the linkage. Air filters (of which I have 3 different options) were purchased on ebay as was the remainder of the linkage. You will probably need a different fuel pump - there again you will get good information from your mechanic whereas you will get a lot of less accurate information from the internet. I am not a mechanic, but I value those who know the real story and make my life easier. I encourage you to do the same.

chnaging to Webers

By the way, if you have the Bosch fuel injection, I think it is a really good system. I have an 86 Spider in addition to the GTV. I have been able to start it in the coldest weather here in Chicago after sitting for several weeks. It is reliable and gets great fuel economy. The car is smogged, so it does not have the power of the earlier cars, but it is still fun to drive and runs very smoothly, unlike some other options.
