Toyota Carb. works

Just finished the install of the Toy. carb. Can not give a road report yet, but it idles and throttles up great. Waitng on the Durabak to get in to paint it, then will put on the road and update for those interested. The carb is from a 78' Toy. corolla with 1.6 liter. Direct bolt on only mods needed include moving throttle cable to fit the carb and killing most the vac. lines from the old carb.

Re: Toyota Carb. works

Hey if you could post the results of a road test (ie. power gains, MPG, etc.) I would greatly appreciate it. My stock hitachi is crap and I'm afraid it's going to fry my new 2" cat. by dumping in too much fuel. Also can you change out the jets on the corolla carb to meet your needs? Just curious. Thanks for the info. It might save me $299 for a weber. ( and the headaches that go with it).

Remember the first rule in the Mountain Man Handbook: It's a long way to the hospital.

Re: Toyota Carb. works

save your money on the weber, get the toyota one or spend 80$ on the pony. Pony has real good power and is very cheap from canada. Just did the install last month on a friends and was impressed. DannyL has some, look him up. Good luck

Re: Toyota Carb. works

Not sure about the jets, i'll check into that. Only mods I will have made will be the carb and header. I do know the motor throttles up faster than with the stock carb. sounds strong. Soon as I get it on the road I will post the results. It is jetted 28/28 versus 26/28 on the stock carb. I got this one new thru Carparts.com

Re: Toyota Carb. works

Make sure to do some plug chops to see how close the jetting is. Otherwise you could have a lean condition and
not realize it. Do them at midrange and top end. Just run it up (Driving) to the range you want to test and stop
without much idling and turn it off quick. Pull a plug and check it. should be light tan to grey not white.
