Ok, for all you guys that hunt JY's. If you are going to look for a Weber Carb, this is what you should look for. First I will mark the cars and trucks, and then the model of carbs. I will be pleased to tell you if the carb is worthwhile if you find something else. I have the repair kits available.

Vehicles
Datsun/Nissan - carbureted trucks and cars pre 1986 L, Z, A, E series engines
Toyota - Corolla pre 87, Celica-pre 81, Land Cruiser 80's and earlier, Pickups pre-88
Mazda - B2600, B2200 trucks. Most cars had people that didnt care about performance other than rotaries
Suzuki - 1300 Samurai
Mitsubishi/Dodge D50 - carbureted pickups, Raiders, Colt front drives
BMW - 2002 with 2 barrel manifolds (best place to find Webers)
Opel - Opel GT
Volvo-non fuel injection cars (144, 122)
Jeep-CJ, Wrangler with 258 motor
Ford - Old Cortina mark 1 (1967?)

Carbs to use
32/36 DGV (manual choke), 32/36 DGAV (auto choke), 32 DGAV, 32 DGV
38 DGAS Maximum performance, mileage will be lower
36 DCD, 28/36 DCD

Questionable carbs
Holley 5200/Weber 32/36 DFAV - linkage reversed to DGV series, most Holleys have linkage that is not bolted on and some have non changeable idle jets, throttle shafts wear easy
Fiat Webers, DMSA series harder to get parts, linkage reversed, 1800 carbs will not fit adaptor
Renault Webers DIR series- same as Fiat

If you are handy, and have access to parts, the Renault and Fiat carbs will work OK

This suggested carb, the 36 DCNVH is not really condusive to the Subaru. It has a different pattern on the base than a DGV series. For parts, there is only one place you can buy parts as well. There is the 38 DGAS that has the same pattern as the DGV series that you can find used or buy new or from Ebay. If you wanted another carb to play with, you could look for DCNF carbs from wrecked Fiats, Ferraris, and Aston Martins

The 1.6L straight 4 mazdas from the mid 1970's came with 180 Holleys which are essentially just rebadged 32/36dgav webbers, the also came with an adaptor plate the bolts directly onto late EA81/82 manifolds.
