this is the first time i heard something like that using 1600 mazda parts carburetor engine. that is an interesting project i like to ask lots of questions regarding that engine but too bad i dont think you are still active because you only have 1 post which means you did not visit this forum site anymore. now i am the one needing knowledge and experience lol

I get my parts from autopartswarehouse ,if you know better sites then send me a private message. I'm currently preparing for a restoration project. I will post a thread and pictures soon.
