i was told that theres a way to fix the up hill flooding problem on the weber 32/36 by filling one hole with jb weld and drilling a new one, true or false? do i just need to set my float level different because its bad right now, like anything above 35% its done for, and if there is a fix can someone give me the link or explain how to do it?

I've not heard of the fill and redrill the hole but it sounds cool...
I seem to remember something about turning the thing around... mounting it backwards. then it will not flood on the uphill but will flood on the downhill... but again I'm going from memory and I've not tried it.
the fill and redrill does interest me... what is your source in this?

the switching it around is the fix I've heard of. People would rather flood it going downhill than kill it climbing a hill. I can't blame them.. so would I.

Where do you re-drill the hole at?

Turning it around? There isn't enough space near the engine valve cover, I tried when I was installing my weber, and it just did not fit. Not enough clearance between the carb and the engine head cover.

This is a picture of it with the carb on backwards. it also has an adapter plate for the stock airfilter.
Ah ... you see, I have an electric choke which intrudes into the engine head. That must be why it didn't fit with me.

About this issue, I was told that the 32/36 does not have a problem with angles ... you guys got me worried. I thought only the 38 weber has a problem with angles. I'm very disappointed :(

my buddy sean said something about it being done on his 84 yota with the same carb and it aint backwards but it dont flood up hills, its something about moving the vent so it doesnt flood into the main barrel, ill have to peak at his and figure it out

you pretty much have to stand it on it's nose to flood it. (or on it's tail if you've reversed it) You only get that kind of grade when doing extreme stuff. I never bothered to flip mine when I had one. I never got my nose up that high to worry about it. If you don't do hardcore climbing with it then just leave it alone. If you can't stop yourself from tinkering with stuff (my biggest flaw) or if you plan on doing some serious hill climbs and rock crawls... then have at it.
