- Will the AC carb work on a non AC motor?
- What's the difference in the two?
- Any modifications necessary to make an AC carb work on a non AC application?

Very pointed questions but I figure someone must have tinkered with jetting, settings, ports, etc. on these things.

Thanks upfront for any additional info

[FONT=Trebuchet MS, Verdana, Tahoma, Arial]<!-- google_ad_section_start -->Lesezig, I have a 28/30 DHTRA on one of my 77s. The engine is a transplant from a 3P. The X did have an A/C but no compressor when I got her. It runs fine with that carb but a couple of the outlets are bypassed. It's a 1300 but I suppose it will work on a 1500 as well. Let us know how it comes out. JP<!-- google_ad_section_end -->

Coffee do help, don't it ? A 28/30 DHTA works on a 1300 then ? Interesting. I'm showing a "5/279" as being OEM on a '79-'80 Strada 49-state std tranny w/o A.C.

I'll keep the height difference in mind when comparing. Thanks,

[FONT=Trebuchet MS, Verdana, Tahoma, Arial]<!-- google_ad_section_start -->YES.. the only significant difference is that the carb for the a/c car has a device to raise the idle speed when the a/c is on.. should bolt right on without any problems at all,

It sounds like there is a lot of leeway for interchangeability then. Several models of the WEBER will perform adequately.

I just got a curve thrown at me. Looked at this 28/30 DHTA 6/179 and according to the books it belongs on a 49 state w/ auto tranny w/ A.C. '79-'80 STRADA. What the heck is a STRADA?

I was hoping the WEBER carb specific manuals would unlock the entire mystery (of tweaking them). hmmmm probably a bunch of trial and error. I know that Warren has tried different emulsion tubes....and probably jetting I would assume.

I know of no other resources - yet.
