    81 Brat 202k and gaining
  1. Think we got it figured out messing with it more thursday. Looks like a bad gasket in the carb. that's letting gas poor in.
  2. Video of it running
  3. Bought my self an 82 DL Brat that has a 32/36 dgev or dgv weber on it. Starts right up even in cold weather. Idles great but when you're giving it gas it has 2 spots that it'll start to bog down before running smoothly and what not. I'm thinking it has the wrong jetting, but I haven't messed with a weber in a few years so I'm trying to get some outside advice.
  4. Dude you are a true subie lover :clap: To stay through with your car like that

    It's just one of the better looking cars that's for 1,000 or under theres a toyota and a couple fords a few dodges ect. ..and that el camino was something my mom pointed out to me and both my step dad and step grandpa said it was a good buy but we are still looking..plus to do the tranny we would have to buy/borrow specail tools cuz im sure we cant swap out the tranny with just wrenches and screwdrivers plus a hammer and my step dad doesnt have a lot of time to work on stuff other then work that gets him money so we are just playing it by ear and seeing how things well go

    The life roller coaster is nothing new to me i have to say im a lot more mature them most of my generation ive seen a lot of things done a lot of things and made many mistakes...if we didnt have such a high demand for a third vehicle i would keep it but we need a third car asap and we have very little cash to spare so on monday if i can get that tranny for free i well most likely be able to keep her but other wise we well have to sell her..and i would love to do yard work just anytime i mow the lawn or what not i have a very bad allergic reaction and have to go to the E.R. It's not fun not being able to breath

    We did tried everything to make sure it was fully engaging and it still wont budge in 2wd and in 4wd all the power is going to the rear wheels i found that out when i was driving over some blocks and the rear wheels kept slipping over them and the front wheels had no power so something is wrong inside the tranny..But i thankyou guys for all the ideas that it could be i really dont wanna see her go but i just dont have a steady income to keep her running
