Hi Don,

Thank you for your answer.

My Webers are old one (45CDOE9).
I have no problem concerning the brass floats as I have controled the fuel level frequently.
I was affraid to have a level too high. That is not the case : I have 26,5 mm on the right carburator (cylindre 1 & 2) and 26 mm on the left one (3 & 4).
Keith Franck specify 25 mm but I'm not sure this could be the reason of this problem.

Your assumtion regarding the accelerator pump circuit is a good idea.
I'll drive the car without the main tubes to be sure that only the idle circuit is operating and I'll check the plug color to have a better idea of the richness on this circuit.
I could also disconnect the Weber accelerator pump to see the result.

It looks strange to me that the plugs look poor and that the idle circuit could be too rich ...

Hi all !

I didn't work on Weber these days.
I finally found the motivation to work under the dash board and finalize isolation and carpets :

I also take this opportunity to rework on the sealing of the base of the shift level. I had some leak due to this.

And I bring the car to the shop in order to have the good front geometry and at last the steering wheel well oriented

All exceedingly nice!

My local alignment shop is always amused when I bring them my cars.

“Which Alfa is it?”

I tell them.

“that’s not in our computer”

I hand them the printed specs.

“Uh, which car in our system is it most like?”

None. And by the way, you are supposed to load weights into the front seats before doing the measurements.

“Uh, did you bring the weight?”

Bang.

Well, did they scratch the fresh paint on your tie rods and track rods with their Vise grip pliers?
Yes, a little bit. But I'll fix it easily.

Don,

I always bring the weight with me : I put myself behind the steering wheel during setting. The car is set just for me 0:)
