Re: 46mm webber questions

1) Do real 46mm webbers share the housing with 40mm and are just bored out?

2) Do real 46mm webbers have different transition holes than 40mm? Mine has 4 holes instead of 3 and they are larger than on a set of 40's.

3) Do real 46mm webbers have different idle mixture screws? Mine stick out into the bores because the bases have been bored out.

4) Do I have any hope of making these run right?
1)no, 46mm are a different casting.

2) my 46mms have three, sounds like yours were tuned, it is not unheard of to have additional holes drilled in them to help with the transition

3)nope, same screws, they do not stick out, because the casting is different.

4)I see no reason why not, but it will be tougher because you will not be able to count on any of the standard settings, but they should be good starting points.
