Hi there!

I've got an 84 GL wagon (186K) with a Weber Carb installed when I bought it two years ago. Of course the carbuerator base plate is a "custom" job completed with silicone. Its got a decent vacumn leak of course.

Does anyone know of a place to find a Weber base plate made for the EA81?

Also any ideas of why my Sube is so cold blooded in the morning? She won't idle until I've revved her up for a couple minutes, and never starts the first time either. The electronic choke works intermitently at best. Once she warms up she idles at 1000 rpm steady.

Once she warms up she runs okay. 25 miles per gallon freeway.

The carb is clean. Filters are new. I've got newer plugs. The timing is set about right, distributor seems okay. Could I look for a hotter coil? What about getting more spark out of my plugs?

Thanks for any advice!

Happy New from NW Washington, where its Subaru Country all year round!

Check out redline for the adapter plate.Or ebay.For the coil I would recomend the Msd blaster2.Gives you a hotter spark.

my 84gl has the same problem with starting up. almost never starts on the first turn, and i have to sit on the throttle for a few minutes before I leave it alone and it'l hover at around 100-500rpm.

I guess my question would be....would a "hotter" coil really make a difference?

Regarding the3 cold running problem; it seems all webers have a tendency for that. the obvious thing is the choke, is it properly adjusted?
