Fomoco / Motorcraft 1V to Weber 34 ICH carburetor conversion kit for the RWD Ford Escort 1300 and 1100.
If you own a 1970 - 1980 Rear-Wheel-Drive Ford Escort 1100 and 1300 with an aging FoMoCo / Motorcraft 1V carburetor, then you are probably very well aware of the fact that these carbs are slowly reaching the end of their working life and that refurbishing them is not really an option.
Fuel consumption will go up, power will go down and trying to set the idle speed will become a major challenge.
Luckily, you are not the only one with this problem so the people at Weber set to work and have created this conversion kit.
With this set, the complete carburetor gets replaced with a brand new 34 mm Weber ICH carburetor with manual choke and 25mm venturi.
It includes an air filter adapter so that your original airfilter can be reused and thus largely maintains the "under the hood" appearance.
The kits comprises all required parts to complete this conversion:
- Weber 34 ICH carburetor suitable for the Ford Escort 1100 and 1300
- Base Gasket
- Fuel line, filter and clips
- Air filter adapter
- Fitting instruction in English
Please note that the carburetor is jetted specifically for the 1.098 and 1.298cc engine.
That means that his carburetor has the following specification:
- 34 mm throttle valve (fixed)
- 25 mm choke (fixed)
- Auxiliary venturi type 3.5
- Main jet size 125
- Idle jet size 52
- Air corrector size 150
- Emulsion tube F2
- Pump jet size 50
The various jets to fine-tune this carburetor to your personal taste and the displacement / power output of your engine, can be found on the Weber ICH page.
The carburetor is a genuine Weber, made in Spain in Weber's own factory while the conversion parts are produced in the UK.
This is Weber Part Number: 15290.020 / 1529002000
