stripped ea82 with hitachi carb?
Posted 18 May 2004 - 06:26 PM
I want a motor with nothing on it except pcv system, disty vac line and manual choke.
I am wondering if a hitachi carb can be made to run smoothly on this motor if everything is plugged off.
also is it possible to remove and block off exhaust tubes, for lack of a better term?
any replies are welcome.

To answer your question, yes it can be done. You just have to know what each thing does, and why it's there. Once you know that it's easy to decide if it's ok to be removed or not. The Hitachi really doesn't have anything more than a Weber that it truely "needs" to run correctly - except the vacuum choke pull-off. The Hitachi is actually quite a good carb, and really not much different than a weber except for beign smaller, and having a vacuum secondary. The engine can be stripped down just like it can with a Weber.
None of this applies if you have a feedback carb - that's a different ball game.
