If I wanted to find out which weber carb would be right for my 83 Brat (1800) - non turbo, apparently - where would I look? Do any of you guys know what model is best?

carbs.net.... ect.

The best way to go of course is to go pull one from a junk yard, find a Ranger with a 2.3L and a Holley/Weber 32/36, no need to rejet, as it's jetted just right for subies. This is the one I grabbed. Then order a rebuild kit, some carb cleaner and engine degreaser, and of course the adapter plate. Then you could swap over the fuel inlet/outlet from your hitachi onto the weber, then buy of course the air filter assembly.

All of this together, from a new carburetor is about $300+ whereas I paid $35 for the carb, $8 for cleaning supplies, $80 for the air filter assembly and the adapter. (genuine redline, a little bit expensive, but I got it next day from a shop)

So of course $123 is way better than $300+ for a weber kit IMO.

And a 32/36 DGEV or DGAV (aqua, for the water assisted choke) either will work I have the DGAV.

If it works for us to meet up this weekend, I can fill you in on the details of getting a new one. And you can take a look at my setup. The only difference between ours would be a different adapter plate.

Hey Guy's :

Is it possible to retain my stock pollution controls after swapping to a weber. I see a lot of guys don't want to, but I'd rather stay with mine if possible.

Cheers,
Gareth

Depends - if your car has a feedback carb, then no. The feedback control systems, which are a big part of the emmissions stuff, will no longer function. If on the other hand, you have a carbed car with no feedback system, then yes, it is completely possible to save all the emmisions equipment. Which amounts to the cat, and the AIS for live systems, and the evap canistor for the passive system. All of which can be kept. In my experience, running my Brat both with the AIS, and without, it didn't help matters much, in fact on the second run with a functional AIS, the HC's were actually higher. Go figure. Personally I could give a crap, and I'll pull it off just to stick it to the man when I get my P.O. box out in no DEQ country...... LOL

Hey;

Mine is an 86 GL AWD dual range Wagon, EA-82, Carbed. Is it likely to have pollution feedback or not?

Cheers,
Gareth

Sorry - there's no way I can tell. I have no idea how many were produced with versus without. You can easily tell for yourself - just check under the drivers side dash for the computer. If you have a computer, then you have a feedback system - no computer means no feedback. Should be a black or gold box with a green or red LED on it. It will look very computerish.....

I can tell you that of the selection of cars I have owned from 83 and 84 (I'm an EA81 guy), most were feedback. Even my friends 82 Brat had a feedback system. However - my 85 Brat is not...... just depends on where the car was originally sold. California cars are always feedback I believe.
