hey new to this place but i need help so here goes i have just acquired an 82 brat and it has a few probs. 1st it backfires like hell after 2 mins. of drive time and has no acceleration. 2nd i need to know if it is a 1.8 or a 2.0 it has and hitachi distributor but it looks like the vacuum pump on the distributor is the wrong type could someone post a pick of the right vacuum pump. it came with a second engine that has a c-w type of carb (i think)it definetally some info about either engine would be helpful

Welcome to the board. You should have an ea81 (1.8 liter motor). Check the castings on top of the engine block. It sounds like you might have a timing problem, but if it starts and runs fine when it's cold, it might be carburation and vacuum related issues.

ok i finally got time to really look at the engine and found out it is a ea 71 sorry for the mix up and it is an 72 brat not a 82. god note though i do have an engine that is an ea 81 but it was hooked to a 2wd car before it was pulled what other than the distributor will i have to change out to get it to hook up correctly to my car.
