Hitachi Carb rebuild ? Need input.

I've never had much luck reading model numbers off the Hitatchi's. They are stamped on with ink, and wipe off along with the dirt when you try to clean the area off.
Since the engine (and intake) in your 82 is not the original, you are going to run into a lot of issues. I'm assuming that it must have ran well at some point, before your recent problems.
If I were you, I would have your carb rebuilt professionally. Two reasons: #1 Hitatchis are not easy to rebuild #2 It will be difficult to identify the exact model of your carb, so you may end up with the wrong rebuild kit, and adjustment specs.
The Webb would be a good alternative too, but doing a professional rebuild will be a little less expensive.
good luck, John

You could go to a JY, and maybe get one for $50. Then order the subaru 4cyl jet kit from carbs.net for another $50, and the adapter plate for whatever, and you've probably not touched half the price of a new one.
this is probably what I will do later. My carb is starting to have problems. Gas mileage is going *way* down as time increases, and my carb is idling weird and sputtering. I've replaced many many things in the car and nothing has done much. I figure I can maybe tune a weber up to get better mileage than I'm getting now. (250mi per tank... I used to get 450 when I used plus at 8BTDC, and then it dropped to about 300, now I'm running 12BTDC and super and I get 250. If I got 350mi/tank I would be happy.)
