Well Dan and I drove his brat a bunch yesterday and after a while it got a little hard to strat. Had to pump the gas and crank it for 4-5 seconds. This continued for a while and after driving on the freeway for about 15 min at high speed, when we would get off and be driving slowly (5-10mph) the car would putter and idle would be pretty unsteady. The car usually idles fine but yesterday it was kind of erratic, not jumpy, but not steady. I should mention that this car has a small leak in one of the headgaskets and has a hitachi carb. What is wrong and would a weber fix this problem?
I also have an 82 brat. I Unplugged the computor and threw it in the trash. I desmogged everything and the car runs great with the stock Hitachi carb. I do know that junk in the gas makes my car run bad. I would change the fuel filters, check for vacuum leaks, check and tighten the carb bolts and intake bolts.
