Re: Toyota Corolla Carb
Took Zuk on road today. Runs like a top, got my idle down to 800 rpm. Went up only hill here (bridge over intercoastal waterway) normally Zuk slows down and have to downshift to 4th to maintain 55 mph, made it at 55 mph in 5th. I got the Carb from Advance auto (rebuilt). I asked for a 78 Corolla 1.2 liter carb. The only problem i'm having is the cheap Advance Auto choke control, it doesn't have enough tension to hold the chokes position (i'm using 1, 2 or 3 closthes pins to hold the choke knob where I need it to be. I'll have to work on this... The carb doesn't exactly match the photos in NCO and others who have posted pics of the Toyo carb switch, howver it works just fine. It really went well for a old 64 year old fart with no great mechanical experience. Thanks for all the pictures posted on the BBS. I'll post mine before the end of the week.
The greatest thing of all was yanking all the vacumn hoses off....
