Yeah, I have heard that from a number of people that the FoMoCo carb isn't great (or as you said "junk"). I like to try to use the parts that came with the car even if I have to make some modifications. Use a Weber carb doesn't seem straight forward (although many have told it is, "it's easy"). I have heard I need to change to a thinner profile motor mount to use the Weber Carb sit will sit too high and you won't be able to close the hood. I would also have to install a different air cleaner (a slim one) and I still would have to install a manual choke as the Weber comes set up for one (OR so I have been told). Is your experience different? Thanks.
