Carburator Help

The stock carb on my 88.5 is about to crap out. I am not sure re-building is the way to go. Any feedback on whether to go with another stock carb, Weber, Pony, etc. is appreciated.

Re: Carburator Help

I personally ran the pony carb on my 86, it was so easy to install and what an improvement. I rebuilt my stock a total of 3 times got all kinds of new parts and it never helped. I'd bolt it on and the same thing, it start right up and then would flood itself or it wouldn't get enough gas or idle so high it was crazy. Anyways as for the pony it idles where ever you set it, it is so much simpler, no electronics, istalled in an hour and runnig like a champ, and only 100 bucks shipped. As for running, well sinse my stock never worked I can't tell ya about the performanc, all I know is that it is a simple, quick, and cheap fix. Maybe some of the other guys on the board can tell ya about the webers, I hear they are great, but pricy. Hope this helps, -Drew

Re: Carburator Help

Replacing with non stock would depend on the smog reqirement in your area of TX, how often the military moves you, and if you wind up in CA you could have probs with non stock smogging.

I've hear lots of problems with rebuilding, but that could also be a skills factor. Some carbs are easily rebuilt by anyone, and others require more experiance. Some carbs have tiny passages that are near imposible to clean out. I've had good luck just taking the top off mine and cleaning out debris from the bowl and getting a decent filter on it. If it is gunged real bad it my take more effort, or not be rebuildable.

Are the throttle plate rods loose and sloppy? once that wears out your pretty much done as rebuilding wont help the vacuum leaks at the rods.

Webers are popular, as are Pony carbs out of Canada. Another option is the Holly-Webers from 4 and 6 cyl pre injection Ford and GM engines. Weber design, and Holly built. direct bolt to the same pattern as the Weber. A bit smaller, but works adiquatly on V6 engines so it should have no prob with a zuk, unless your winding up a hot cam to 7-8000 rpm like the Swift GT engines can.

Re: Carburator Help

Yep, Pinto, Mustang II, some newer Mustangs, Capris, Bobcats, possibly Escorts, any with the engines 2000, 2300, and some of the V6 motors used em with a 90 deg adaptor. I'm using one of those adaptors with a homemade plate adaptor on an RV cam'ed 289 with a weber now.
