Thanks to Shawn, our fearless Board leader, I now have a Weber on my 87 Hatch. It was pretty simple to put in. The most time consuming part was eliminating all the hitachi sensors, valves, and hoses etc. After I extended the wire for the electric choke, redid the fuel lines, and pvc hoses...I was amazed how clean, organized, and simple the engine bay is now. I love it. That is just the beginning...Upon start up, she fired right up ran smoother. It never really ran "bad" before, but I notice a difference. Acceleration is more responsive and it seems I have a few more horses. I am overall very impressed, well worth the money.
I just need to take into a shop and have them FINE tune it, for optimum performance and fuel economy.
I still have a problem, maybe you guys can help. It did this with the hitachi as well, I thought the carb was the problem. When I shut it off, it continues to run for another second or 2. It does not do it all the time, intermittently. Typically if I VERY slowly turn the key off, it will not continue to run for another second and sputter off. When it does continue to run for second or two, and I re start it immediately or 15-20 mins later, it has a little bit of a rough time starting and runs rough. Is the ignition switch worn or coil? Thoughts on this?
