I use them on all my vintage Subys. But the choice is yours.
They run between $150 and $200 rebuilt, but you can find them cheaper sometimes on eBay.

I have been fighting the hitachi curse for a week, 2 rebuilds, new fuel pump,cleaning tank & fuel lines,Still have eractic ,rough idle,& stalling!
My 78 bratt is low miles, no apparent ,visual,problems with the carb,
What causes this idle problem?
I did order the Webber retrofit kit,But i saw your post about the rebuilders that guarantee there rebuilds,An going to order from them, As you know i want to keep my brat as original as possible,
I doubt that they will take the Webber Kit back ,So I'll try to sell it here ,
I knew I should of called you! Thanks Again,Hogan.

Anyway, I started out with the Redline kit. I installed it as shipped and it was a thirsty beast. A little research turned me onto Aircooled.net. The owner John is a Weber genius and he's got the master jet kit of death. He showed me how to properly set the float and replace all the jets. Now my throttle response is crisp, the engine doesn't hickup when I alternate between throttle and coasting, fuel economy is way up, and in spite of throwing out half my emissions stuff, the car passes emissions easily.
If you do hit up John for new jets, tell him you heard from the guy with the DGEV in a Brat and while mine runs wonderfully, my CO level is still 2%. So you might wanna go a size down with your primary.
