Been working on my '84 Brat lately. A few years ago I bought a Hitachi Carb from a junkyard, but I can't remember what it came off of.
Was wondering if anyone could ID it, and could maybe give some insight on if I can use it on my Brat. Excuse me if I don't know the technical names of some of the parts.
The one on the left is the Hitachi out of my 1984 Subaru Brat.
The one on the right is the Hitachi from the junkyard.
Original carb has two metal doohickies on the rear (circled) while the junkyard carb has only one.
Original carb has mechanical/electrical solenoid on the left, yellow wire. Junkyard carb has all electrical.
Original carb has a hose attached on the front (circled), the junkyard carb does not have this hose attachment.
Junkyard carb has a hose going from the metal doohicky on the lower rear to the top of the carb. Original carb does not have such connection.
I actually installed the junkyard carb and attached all the hoses, and was left with an extra hose with no connection, due to the junkyard carb not having the hose connection on the front.
Car started and idled normally and throttle worked fine, however I was worried about the extra hose so I came here to ask the pros.
The hose I'm talking about his highlighted in the second picture, I took pictures of everything before I unhooked the original carb, and labelled each hose.
Anyone have any info on the mystery carb and if I can use it?
Thanks in advance. Can get more pictures if needed.
