Weber 48 DCOE

48's, not 45's as in the thread title - duh!

Anyone know when these were introduced? I have been told that they were certainly around in 1962 but can't find any hard evidence.

The 45 is the weapon of choice for the FIA MGB which suggests the 48 was around at the same time 1963(?).

I read that the Cobra prototype had DCOEs in 1962 but I'm not sure which model they were.

https://www.tecno2.it/cms/downloads/...ioni-1960-1973

This scanned document (no searchable text included but I might be able to create something from if some software I have does not object to Italian) has reference to a 48DCO3 being available for a Maserati 250F.

See page 24.

I may have missed earlier references as I scanned.

So there may be more to be discovered here to provide dating guidance.

Other than in the file name I have not spotted any dates for availability. The Document appears to be a combination of several product lists of different years between 1960 and 1973.

Wikipedia does not have much either.

There may be other sources ...

I used 48s in my Hot Rod in the late 60s but the ones I used in my Anglia in later years were 50s

I used 45s in the mid 60s on the Anglia (and 40s were available at that time). And I read somewhere that Ferrari were experimenting with side-draught Webers in the early 60s, although size/type was not mentioned.

Thread title changed.

I’d say mid 60s, without doing any research to back that up......

I would like to think that someone like webcon or other Weber specialist dealer could give an accurate answer?

The DCO was different from the DCOE. DCOs were around at least as early as 1958. Happen to know this as I did some research on 32DCOs for Delta just a few months ago.

From the PDF file linked earlier the 48, in any variant, only appears once, as mentioned, in the "Discontinued" list from 1960.

The 1968 and 1973 documents don't mention a 48 anything at all.


Meanwhile ...


While looking at those documents ... what was a Ford Anglia Torino?


..... and a quick Google later .....

I have an original Weber manual which lists settings for various models .
Can,t see 48s , but 45 DCOE /9 are listed for several cars in 1962 .

DCO's were the sand cast body hand built carburettor, and were in a lotto winners price bracket for a genuine matching numbers set. Norman Seeny certainly produced very respectable reproductions and were marked as such, The matched set on John Quick's (JQ recently RIP) . WOO 11 disappeared when the car was in the USA, and certainly not with the car on it's return to Europe in 2001 That particular set came from Peter Sargent complete with manifold after Dr Klat fitted injection to the two Peter's lightweight E.
