Hey whats up guys, I have a 1985 brat 4wd and im in the process of rebuilding the carburator. I thought i had a dcz 328, but when the rebuild kit arrived i realized the gaskets dont match up. I searched around but cannot find a straight up answer as to which carb i really have and which rebuild kit i need. Id rather not waste more money on kits i cant use, can anyone help me out?

look it up as an 83 brat to exlude any of the later type EA82 carb kits (what you got)


here's a link to a kit at autozone that works

That looks much more accurate, gaskets match up much better. I should have done more research than just go with what the chilton said, damn book. Thanks guys hope this works so i can get my car up an running again

the problem is not the book but the way the parts house list things.The parts houses think that ANY subaru 1984 or newer is EA82.So for a brat or hatch even its made in 89 if have to call it an 83 to avoid confusion.

the book says if you have a 1.8 liter it uses the dcz 328, i didnt think about the ea82 i assumed it would be the carb under my hood. my fault really, as i said before i should have looked into it a bit more.
