Weber conversion on 1.3 motor
So I bought a project, had a knock, needed an engine swap.
Unfortunatly I live in an area that requires DEQ testing, so I made it a
stock engine on the swap as to be able to pass inspection.
After ( three used carbs later) trying to get my Sami to run decent on the stock carb, (and all the plumbing that goes with) I got it thru DEQ checks and got it titled.
BUT it still ran crappy......
I put a Weber on it, and it hauls, idles nicely, great secondaries,
BUT ...... I got the carb on a used engine that I installed to replace the knocking engine my car had in it, so I had no instructions on what to do to make it run correctly.
I stripped all of the switches, vacume lines, regulators, heat sensors, fuel vapor cannister, everything including the EGR system. all I left was a vacume line to run the distributor advance. (got that info from Redline web-site)
WHAT I NEED TO KNOW IS:
What do I need to leave on the engine for it to run safely.
Does the EGR (or any other system) NEED to be hooked up?
(it does seem to smoke a little since I got it back together)
I know this is a common upgrade, so I figured someone will know what I need (or don't need) on the engine.
Also wondering if anyone has done a DEQ inspection with a weber carb,
and is there anything special to do to make it pass??? (need todo again in2010)
Thanks in advance for any input..............
BTW The headers and flowmaster is next.....
