My Midget 1500 now has a Weber downdraft. I purchased sometime ago a dual SU setup for the 1500. The questions I have is how does this setup rate compared to the Weber? I wanted to go this route because you don't see many 1500 cars with the SU setup. 2nd, I am not sure if this really came off of a 1500. It is slightly different than the others I have seen. It is in great shape. The person I purchased it from said they had it in their attic for years and didn't get much use. Also, anyone know of photos and/or parts to help me set up the linkage. I have 2 photos if anyone could look at them and help me ID this set up. Right now I don't have any means of posting them but I can email them, as long as no one ads me to their forwarding list. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/spam.gif

Rob, take a look at this, as well. Particularly my post regarding the single HS4.

I don't know if my experience is typical, but I did have a Weber downdraft on my '78 and have since changed to dual SU's. My biggest disatisfaction with the Weber was that I couldn't get it set properly. That aside, what I have heard is that Webers have better top end perfomance and SU's are better off the line.

My personal experience seems to be that is true.
