So I've decided that I'm going to get my hands on a set of 40 IDF weber clones from deepest darkest China, and see if they're quite as bad as the Internet would have us believe.
They're on their way to me now from a "UK Distributor" after they accepted my rather derisory offer for something that that would cost me about £300 to buy if they were 40 year old, worn out, Italian ones.
Once they arrive, I'll do some unboxing photo's, disassembly, and re-assembly, then hopefully get them on an engine and fire it up to see how it runs. That's if I can secure myself a suitable engine to do so .
So in summary, I've paid good money, for a set of carbs for an engine I don't currently own, in order to see if they're any cop, even though the Internet is jam packed with people saying it's an awful idea.
