Hey Gang,Anyone get a hitachi from these guys? they have a rebuild one for my 87 dl wagon for $220 bucks. Any thoughts? I thought of a weber but I do like the hitachi's if there running good...i mean they do up to 200,000 before you even need to adjust them...Thats what I have seen. So whats the best way to get the wifes wagon going? Thanks Todd.OSF
Try these folks also. They should be cheaper. I got a National carb a few years ago, but through ADAP and paid a lot more. The carb is working well.

Weber is the best option. I wouldn't mess with any Hitachi even a rebuilt one.
I Agree, also $ 220.ºº is very expensive for a used -reman- hitachi carb.

ps i found a VW shop in Sea Tac that has webers w/ adapter for $380 total.I have bought 1/2 dozen of them over the years and they were always treated me right..
Are you talking about Autosport Imports? They are in my neighborhood.
Also Northwest Connecting Rod is a bit north of me in Southpark.

Unless you are attached to the Loyale body style, I would recommend a Legacy. They can be had for very cheap these days, especially the '90-'94s. Anything you buy would probably need new bearings, struts, ball-joints, and tie-rod ends, but it would likely stay running and start easily.
I just want something to stay running..so I can give my cars some "quality time" haha anyway thanks for the surport.
