have you tried choking the hell out of it with our hand over the carb opening?
rev it up to like 2 grand and gradually put your hand over the opening. it will die a few times, till you figure it out, but you want to get it to rev to about 3 grand with your hand almost completely choking off the air flow.
it creates massive vaccum on yourjets, and will suck out any crap clogging them up, or clog them more. guess its a toss up. but it made mine work a little better.

The Hitachi better than the Carter/Weber???????!!!!!!!!
WHAT? I beg to differ, I Never had any problems with mine after I rebuilt it. It would start up on the first crank, and ran smooth through the whole rom range, never flooded or leaned out, even offroading in some extreme conditions.
Hitachi on the other hand, had nothing but trouble from them, gutless, flooded out too much.
Plus the amount of torque that you gain going to the 1bbl is awsome, the low end on the EA81 started around 800rpm, but I could run it down as low as 500 and have it keep running crawling around offroad.
But that my opinion.

2. If you get a used one and rebuild it (or have a carb shop rebuild it for $50, and buy the adaptor and air filter, you'll still come in under $200, and you can't get a rebuilt hitachi, or a rebuilt carter - weber for this price. Also - rebuilding the Hitachi or the carter weber is not always possible due to primary throttle shaft wear.
3. Tons of aftermarket cool stuff for the 32/36 - like snorkel adaptors, manual choke kits, and filters..
4. The 32/36 is completely tunable for modded engines - jet kits are cheap, and easy to install.
I have been toying with the idea of using a 32/36 DFAV or DFEV from an early model ford - there's tons of these to be had in the JY - they use the same adaptor plate as the DGV's, air filters can be had online that look exactly like the DGV type for $15, and on top of that, the choke is on the other side so will not be close to the disty.....

I just sold a rebuild for carbs from '81-2 or so.I have at least one more of those,maybe more,and another carb re-build kit for a later model.
I'm also involved in helping an old dealer blow out some old stock.I came across several carb rebuild kits today but had no time to get p/n's checked.Didn't even take note of the p/n's but I will soon.
