VV CARB ALTERNATIVE
My classic Ford is a low-mileage Escort Mk3 1300L, which is fitted with a Ford VV carb. I’d like to change this, but retain the manual choke. Can you advise on what would be most suitable for the car? Harry Wallis Email A We suggest going for one of Weber’s direct replacement carbs — in this case the 32IBF. It’s 10 times better than the VV, bolts straight on and you’ll also keep the manual choke. You should expect to pay around £140 from a Webcon dealer such as Burton Power.
