Gettin ready to swap to a weber,but I have a few questions.Is the connector for the electric choke the same or will it need need to be modified?What needs to be added if I get a carb with the water choke.The adapter plate,does any one have a picture or sketch of what it looks like.I could probably make it if I could see one.Does the coolant hole on the manifold get blocked off by the adapter plate or is there a hole for that too?And finally does any one have pictures or diagrams of the hose connections.
Thanks

If my attached image works, it should give you the hole locations you need. It's EMPI brand adapter made to fit the Hitachi intake like you'd have on your '84 Hatch.

And the gaskets (like you really need measurements for gaskets.)

I just did a Weber swap on an EA82. Cameron's site is the following - if it still helps :)

Local (for me) supplier for webers, parts, and gaskets. But they have an 800# and do mail-order also.

Yeah well what sucks is that I made those pics a couple years ago and forgot I had 'em. I should have shared a long time ago but forgot they were on my harddrive. Maybe they could they be added to the Weber installation info on the USRM?

For those making their own adapters from scratch, a decent bimetal hole saw is all that's needed to bore the big hole. Works quuite well on soft aluminum.
