Hi and welcome. Post up your problems in the technical section and our wizards will get back to you. Weber carbs are simpler to maintain but confer no performance advantage and slightly worse economy than a functional pierberg. It depends whether originality matters and if you like a challenge which you go for.

Common faults are legion (though rarely difficult to solve) so easier to ask as they become apparent.
