Fiat 124 Spider – 34ADF Carburettor Upgrade

At last I got round to doing something I’ve wanted to do for ages – that’s bin the horrible, filthy, pipe infested Weber ADHA/manifold setup and replace it with a nice 34ADF/manifold installation.
What started out as a seemingly easy job soon turned out to be a bit of a project and a race against time to get the job done before my boys’ birthdays.
Main problem was the replacement manifold gasket had a small patch of coating missing and just wasn’t permitting a good seal.
Working late at night in poor lighting meant it went unnoticed until it was on.
This caused no end of stress trying to find out exactly where the leak was coming from.
The problem was compounded by the (in)accessability of 2 of the manifold bolts that would bring swear words from a nun!
Final issue was a faulty idle cut-off solenoid which was replaced with the one from the aforementioned ADHA.
Setting up was relatively easy following Brad Artigue’s excellent guides.
I’m absolutely delighted with the results – the increase in power is amazing and the car feels alive 🙂
Anyway here are the photos…
