The  downdraft Weber was looking pretty attractive because of what I have
read  about the need to maintain and occasionally rebuild the SU's, but the
power  tuning book doesn't even mention the downdraft Weber, and only
mentions the  sidedrafts in the context of racing.


Early twin SUs are far superior to the downdraft Weber some  people fit due 
to clearance issues with the brake booster. It is not a  performance carb like 
the side draft models but certainly seems to ride on their  reputation - 
people apparently like to be able to brag that they have a Weber on  their 
even when it is one of the downdrafts.
Put SUs on your car and forget about needing to rebuild them  for the next 
decade or so....
