  1. I am new to Subaru and have acquired an 83 GL station wagon, straight body, garage kept and she runs!...kinda. It starts but floods because my metering rod is seized inside the carter weber carb. I seem to have purchased the last rebuild kit in the US (or so I've been told) for just about $300! Now I'm being told I should get a new carb and haven't had any luck finding anything to fit the carter/weber intake manifold on this EA81 engine. I'm learning to work on this car, not a mechanic so my knowledge is very little on conversions. I want to see her drive but may not be the project for me since parts are rare and no sentimental value to encourage me to spend the $$$. The interior is immaculate, the original owner has everything down to the dealer keychain in the leather case. One dent in the drivers door but other than that, the car appears brand new. He treasured this car and hoped I could get it on the road again but been hitting dead ends so this is where I'm at. I can either find the right manifold to accept a new carter redline carb or hitachi carburetor, or find one to adapt to mine but the last thing I want to do is start parting it out or sell it all together. Upon waiting for my carb kit and sending back the redline carb that won't mount to my manifold, I've cleaned the fuel tank, new filters, pump and fuels lines. unseized the back brakes and got all new parts and haven't run into a snag until now. I am hoping to get some information on where I can find a hitachi manifold or work around for the original carb. Any information will help.
  2. Working on a clean 83 GL garage find! Been sitting for about 7years but everything on it is in great condition. Super excited about this project but am in the learning stages of working on carburetors. I’ve cleaned the tank, replaced fuel lines, filters, even traded out the fuel pump bc I was suspicious of the box looking one not working. Been bottle feeding at the carb and she sounds great but knew I had to dig into the carburetor if I want her to run. I’ve been taking advice from a few old forums on here and got the Carter Weber $3 manuals off eBay along with a service manual. It seems people debate in the hitachi versus the Carter but I would like to stick with what I got but hope parts are not unobtainable. The fuel sensing unit seems to not be working after I dismantled and cleaned but that’s the least of my worries at this point. Any ideas or help in that would be great. I need to find a rebuild kit and haven’t had any luck on a couple sites such as rock auto and whatnot. Hoping carburetors unlimited or some other recommended sites could help me out. Appreciate any advice in advance and have a nice day!
  3. I am in the middle of a carb swap from a carter-weber to a hitachi and I just got the new intake in but the vacuum line cp (hard vacuum lines under intake) are different. not sure what to connect to what. curious if anyone has a diagram or information. thanks
