Weber Pics

This is directed at a pretty slim audience on this board but here you have it.

My old Solex DDHE 40s were leaking gas everywhere, a potential fire hazard for sure. Decided to order new Weber DCOE 40s from Pierce Manifolds and what a difference! Thanks to Mike Pierce for Jetting etc. and Dave and Richard as always for helping me get back on the road.

John you finally got that done, you had that fuel leak for awhile, those red filters were just a spong soaked in gas, fire hazard indeed

Hey Lee!

Saw your pics on the other site. Looks very nice man. Really happy with the carbs. Added bonus is my car is now pictured on the Pierce Manifolds site. Check it.

We need more classic BMWs in Eastern Canada. Let's also remember that the 2007 edition of Targa Newfoundland was won OVERALL by a 1969 2002 driven by Roy Hopkins.
