15 / 35-37 Canterbury Rd. We are Australia's largest supplier of Genuine Weber carburettors and parts.
We have 700+ inlet manifolds in stock for most engine types. Over the past few years, we have seen a number of poorly manufactured Weber carburettor copies enter the market, along with a selection of calibrated parts which are just as poorly made. Whilst the US and South America have been manufacturing these parts for several years, a number of these copy carburettors and parts are now coming from China, and whilst the slightly cheaper price tag may seem attractive, you will end up spending a lot more trying to get them to work.
The more recent items are copies of the 40, 45 DCOE and 48 DCO range of carburettors. They have FAJS cast into the body. Several people have been caught out purchasing these thinking they are a Weber - so please ensure you know what you are getting. Some examples of the poor design and manufacturing of copied parts include. Carburettor threads and machines surfaces and poorly finished and strip easily or do not seal.Castings have been found porous and made of poor quality alloys (for those fitting 48 IDA carbs to Mazda rotary engines, forget about trying to weld on an extended fuel bowl, the casting will simply melt away). Bearing and carburettor spindles are not accurately aligned.
Progression holes are not accurately drilled. Jet seats do not seal.On first inspection, the casting of these carburettors appear quite reasonable - but this is expected as the die for casting the carburettor bodies is brand new. Don't be fooled by the shiny appearance! Most of the calibrated parts in these FAJS copies need to be thrown away, and new jets installed. Remember, we are talking about precision calibrated parts used to tune for economy or high performance. Weber Performance only deals with genuine Weber carburettors & parts. All our parts are sourced from directly from Europe, and are guaranteed to be manufactured to the exact tolerances required. A little something about the manufacturing of Weber carburettors. As some may know, the original Italian Weber factory closed in 1992 (not too long after fuel injection took over). A few years later production resumed in Spain utilising all the same machinery and tooling. LCN is a major automotive supplier to some of the world's leading European car manufacturers. Weber carburettors in fact make up less than 10% of their business. Being involved so heavily in the Automotive industry, they must adhere to ISO 9001 manufacturing standards for all parts - including Weber carburettors. All genuine Weber carburettors manufactured by CNC are wet tested with an inert liquid before leaving the factory to ensure they perform as they are meant to.
