Hello,

The Hitachi Carburetor in my '84 wagon just suffered a broken choke. I am trying to decide between replacing it with a new Hitachi unit or using this opportunity to take the plunge into a Weber conversion. I am all for the Weber with the one caveat that I have to pass both emissions and safety inspection here in Austin, TX. There will be a visual safety inspection as well as a Two Speed Idle test every year, so I am not sure if it will be legal for me to disconnect and cap off all of the emissions tubes if I convert to a Weber.

If anyone else has passed these sorts of emissions tests with a Weber please relate your experience and any advice regarding the feasability of passing emissions with a Weber.

Thanks!

It's not hard to pass emissions with a Weber, you just need the right jets. As for all the vacuum lines, keep the ones you need, the others can just become ghosts, plug them internally and mr. inspector doesn't know.

So what am I looking at modification wise in my '84 GL? I am thinking of buying the Weber K730 kit. Will my spare tire still fit under that hood with that air filter? Will I need to modify my distributor? Still on the fence until I have a better idea what all is involved versus just getting a new Hitachi.

Any help is appreciated.

Yours is probably an EA81 and mine is an EA82, so they're not exactly the same, but I still have a full-size spare in my car.
