Mechanic recently looked at my Brat & recommended a Carburetor rebuild or replacement.The attached image from an ebay page shows a re manufactured carburetor that is saying it will fit an 86 Brat GL.
Can anyone confirm this?
Thanks in advance~
Pretty sure that is the WRONG one.
I would not trust that listing at all.It does not even give the carb #.
Listing also claims it fits fuel injected models! Complete BS,of course.
SUB 176 is a Hitachi DCZ-328-xx rebuilt by National Carburetors.
AFAIK,DCZ-328s are for EA-82 engines(won`t fit your EA-81)
I believe the correct one would be a DCP-306-xx where the x`s represent different versions corresponding to auto/manual Califonia/Federal and year.
There is no power to be gained by removing the "emission stuff'.
No top end power gain from a weber conversion either.Mid range throttle response is better though.
Why does your mechanic want to replace the carb?
Often,this is a cop-out because they don`t know what else to say.
Like your paint job.
