Anyway, it still idles at 4,000 RPM.
I decided to "freshen up" some of the engine's ancillaries while I had it on the stand - I put new bearings in all the idler and tensioner pulleys, put new timing belts on it, some new gaskets, and I rebuilt the carb. I think I broke the carb.
I'm thinking of neutral-dropping this thing at 4,000 RPM into the back end of my dad's Forester, hopefully causing enough damage to total it out... then I can rob his EJ25.

What kind of issues did you have getting the Sambar licensed?

back to your original question
check the secondary barrel of the carb
and make sure it's throttle plate is closed.
I'm sure you already looked at throttle linkage
too tight ect.

Just remember, the carb does EVERYTHING in hardware, so if it is not a precise-feeling, well-oiled machine (think like a watch or a fishing reel) then it AINT gonna run right. The Good News? SPFI conversion is not very difficult at all.
i LOVE the rims on the sambar,
