1.8 914 With Carbs

I recently installed carbs. on my 914 (1974 1.8). The carbs are weber dual single bbl. 34's. Is the timing mark still the same as when I had fuel injection???

If you kept the original distributor, then yes. That is recommended, most especially with a 1.8 conversion. Their distributor seems to be one of the better ones to use with carbs.

The origional distributor has vacuum ports on it. if it is kept what do you connect to the vac. ports. i got an 009 distributor without the ports from Pelican parts, a facet pump, with a fuel return line.

Toss the 009 as it has the wrong advance curve! Use the stock Dizzy and you won't have that "off idle" hole. Those 34's are too small btw as even the Euro 1.8l 914's ran 40mm Soleex's.

40mm single-throat Solexes. But yeah, the 34s are still too small.

Don't connect the vacuum ports to anything. If your carbs have fittings on them for manifold vacuum (below the throttle plate; may be on the manifold itself) or for "ported" vacuum (just at or just above the throttle plate when the plate is closed), you can plug them into the distributor. But you don't have to.
