The Weber DGV series, 2-barrel, progressive down-draft carburetor, as used on both the Ford 1600cc Kent (Formula Ford) and 2000cc (Sports 2000 & Ford 2000), remains one of the most simplistic, yet tunable components on these and many other, small bore race vehicles.
Normal servicing may be required to keep the internals clean of foreign materials, both airborne and those delivered from the fuel system. Occasionally inspecting the float settings are required, normally due to the riggers of traveling by trailer to an event. Many of these units have been modified by engine builders, with small tubes running into the airstreams, thus care must be observed when performing any service or jet change function.
Adjustments normally carried out by an individual, would commonly be a jet change. The upper jets, just below the top cover (remove six screws), are know as Air Correctors (also, high speed bleeds). When those jets are removed the emulsion tubes below them are exposed (function = mix air and fuel). These have been known to get plugged with grass, tire rubber and grit, that somehow by-pass fuel and air filter assembly. In the bottom of the float bowl, is the Main Fuel jet. Both of these Jets, are measured in .05 mm increments (1.45mm, 1.55mm, etc.) and sold as such.

Ramair air filter
The FF filter series has been developed for the Ford Kent motor. The compact design allows the filter to occupy a small space, but maintain a high airflow. The baseplate bolts directly to the carburetor body. The oval shape runs parallel to the engine. This is the replacement for many OEM single seater applications using the Weber 32/36DGV Weber carburetor, such as the late 80's Reynard.
