My single carb. conversion using the 32DFT,

Idle is set at 1000 rpm,

It Idles really well, set at 1000-rpm, it seems like it would idle well, till it ran out of gas.

Again there is no Hesitation at ALL, in any throttle position, or in the transition from single to the second barrel, it is Flawless.

I think i can idle it lower and may try it, briefly.

But!
The Problem with idling a Goldwing-4 Engine to low, is Now you have your Oil pressure to low.

The oil pressure needs to be high enough to lube the engine bearings properly.

So for me 1000-rpm is a about right or a Minimum.

I have a Spin on, Oil filter adapter, this cleared up my "RED" Oil Warning light from coming on at all.

The OEM stock Oil housing and Bolt/Check valve/pressure regulator, was something to be desired, meaning I had Oil pressure Leak Back, past the worn out check valve/plunger piston, that is in there.

The Napa spin on filter #1348 comes built in to it a check valve, and a new check valve in each one.

Most spin On Oil filters have a check Valve/Oil Pressure relief, built into them now a days

I use a Napa Oil filter Napa Gold #1348 or, WIX # 51348 Spin on Oil Filter,

These oil filters have a check valve in them to keep oil pressure in the oil lines/passages, and Not let the oil back up and out of the oil passages, and back into the oil pan

So at start up, you can get the RED OIL warning light, or a Low Oil Bearing Sound.

I had Both of them, I thought the engine was toast at one point, till i switched to the new Filter.

Solved my problems.

Captain,

What did you do for tuning the 32dft carb?

I put it on my analyzer and read the exhaust.

I've been looking through some of the various manuals I've got.

Chilton says there is a Motorcraft 5740, identical to the 740 aside from how the float is set.

Clymer, for the Escort/EXP, says there was a TSB for the jets and their holders. Seems vibration would cause them to come loose. The recommended fix was Loctite. There were not enough service calls performed to warrant a recall on the matter.

Haynes "Weber Carburetors Owners Workshop Manual" lists the 32DFTA-1 as a California carburetor, not a Ford-specific carb that I read of in another manual and posted about yesterday.
Haynes lists the jetting for both the DFTA and the DFTA-1, but is specific to a Fiesta with a 1.6 liter engine. It jets heavier than our 740 from Tom. Relevant because of the same 22mm chokes used. I PDF'd it and attached below if interested (I'm still wording it but figured I'd get it up now while I got the chance). Compare the jetting to our 740 West.. Our 740 can be jetted a bit heavier on the secondary and still maintain a smooth transition. Tom's 740, as-is, is perfect in my opinion though.

I think the 32/34 has choke sizes of either 23/26mm or 24/25mm. I've no listing of it in any of my Weber manuals and have been looking through my various Haynes manuals for info on it. I think it would be a good candidate for a conversion.

Hey captain,

Look at what i found for possible carb air intake Heat.

That carb top could have heat routed to it.

Something interesting that i found

West, check the attachment below.
A 32/34DFT with 21mm primary and 23mm secondary chokes.
It has a manual choke.
A European market carburetor for a Ford Escort MK3 (known here as the GT) with either 1.4 or 1.6 liter engines.
From the Haynes manual printed for the European market for that car.

It is jetted heavier than our 740 as well.
I'm certain that carb would work...

I've jetting listed for it.
Not much time right now, but will compile a list later.

Hey thanks Capt.

Looking at that list mine does not have the options A, B, D, or H

Mine has a elec. choke. and looks more like a 32DFT except there are 3ea more vacuum port tubes on the upper base plate, that is different, and 2ea carb body near the solenoid like 32DFT and 1ea down by the air idle screw, Like 32DFT, the air idle screw has a brass cover over it, that i will have to drill out

There is also a much larger brass colored tube (probably anodise steel) vacuum tube just below the fuel Inlet? Brake Vacuum?

Also My fuel Inlet looks just like the 32DFT, the one in the Exploded view pic looks different.

Also My 32/34DFT does Not have a #59 Primary Shaft Return Spring (or the Forward Return Spring as Tom calls it) like the 32DFT has on it.

My 32/34DFT also came with a slightly thicker than 1/4" thick, phenolic spacer plate, that has a 1/2" long tube, below the 1/4" thick spacer for a total of 3/4" from top of spacer to bottom of tube, in the Secondary side only of that spacer plate, this would drop down in to the VW manifold

In looking at the carb again it also has a vacuum pot in the same casting as the elec choke, with it's own vacuum port

I may have to get that Haynes Weber Manual, i have seen at the local auto parts house
