The venerable DCOE is the Weber's premier Carburetor - which is still the standard by which all other carburetors are measured. It is unsurpassed for full-race use, yet its infinite tune ability by way of interchangeable calibrated parts allows it to be tailored to suit any engine and application. Hardly enough can be said about the DCOE. Its features include: ball bearing throttle shafts, piston type accelerators pump circuits, a wide variety of throttle bore sizes.. and, of course, the excellence that is Weber.
 
 
Question:
I have a stock 1275 engine. Can I use a 40DCOE? will it be jetted and ready for this kind of engine? Will I need to know any thing special to get this going? Thanks
Answer:
Complicated question, yes it will run as you receive it BUT to be honest, you will not get big performance gain unless you have it tweaked with the use of a Dyno. And probably more important using this intake manifold will not allow the use of an air cleaner and may in fact only be able to use short intake stacks.
If you have your heart set on a Weber system I would suggest this- it is a simple bolt-on with no further tweaking needed:

Tuning your WEBER DCOE-Style Carburetor

So you have a nifty Weber DCOE or S&K Racing sidedraft carb setup for your vehicle. You're ready to chew gum and kick butt, and you've run out of gum. You bolted on the carb in place of your SUs or Zenith-Stromberg and voila! You have worse gas mileage, and the power gain is slight enough to be psychological.

Last time we chose a manifold based on flow volumes, and a carbie based on personal choice, but which combination is best on this engine?  With the engine finished, it is time to look at a variety of carburettors, inlet manifolds and exhaust extractors, to fnd the most suitable combination. There are a lot of fgures, but they are necessary, so bear with me.

One of the common problems where sidedraft carbs are involved is the choice of carb size in the first place and choke size in the second. The trick with carb sizing and choke selection is basically one of choosing a size which provides the engine with the airflow it needs without going over the top.
