Weber Information

There are two Weber Carbs that are popular with Spitfire owners; DGV and DCOE. Also available are DGEV (DGV with electric choke) and DGAV (DGV with water choke).

DCOE carbs are sidedraft, meaning air goes into the carb from the side as original SU’s. DCOEs are higher horsepower carbs but do require much more tuning. Single or dual DCOEs are available for Spitfires.

DGV carbs are downdraft; air comes in from the top like the Zenith Stromberg carbs. Although they can not achive as high horsepower ratings, they are much easier to tune often requiring no modification straight out of the box.

See this link for photo examples of these carbs.
