i really appreciate all the info.......
i build 'stuff''.....and agree that in my case the stock carb running great is the best way to go. however in my sammy on the road it is the scaryist .....will not take more that 1/4 throttle on the front barrel....50 MPH....with 80 mph traffic breating down your neck....wow...
i have decided to0 install the toyota 1200 [74-75] carb......as published in acksfacts....bought it on ebay...will be delivered next week. searched local junk yards ...no luck.
reasoning..... fits manifold without a big problem....fits under hood, and can use stock air cleaner.... AND...it seems about as simple as they get......i will have to fab all the brackets etc.......but overall..pretty simple.
i feel this car is suffering from some sensors gone south.....iam from tx.....bought it in colorado 8 months ago to tow behind my RV. cherry, 52000 mi and absolutely no rust...$1400..... had looked SERIOUSLY for one for 12 months. had a ..check eng light on......drove it to 12000 ft and all over the rocky mountains....starts , idles and runs perfect....but will not rev.
i want the simplicist rig i can build for where i go in strange terrority. so iam willing to rewire the whole car if i have to to get rid of that
after reading the acksfacs ariticle , i was convinced. but, how in the H**8 can i be so lucky to find that carb. junk yards are smashing everything past 1990....and the gov . wants every thing except new cars off the road. all the hot rod orgs. i belong too have been fighting this for 25 years.
somewhere down the road modified stuff like we all love will only be trailered to some kind of event.
THANKS ......open to you comments.
will let you know the results.
