EJ22 Carb & Dizzy conversion

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

 

I've built a few Subaru Trikes now using the EA82 motor with great success. I'm now ready to build with the EJ22 motor. I understand the EJ22 can be carbed (intake machined top except a carb) no problem there. The part I don't know, is what Distributors can be made to fit. I have read on this forum that the 82 to 84 Ford Escort is one that has been used. These being very hard to find these days, are there any others that can be used?

 

The Dist. would have to be vacuum advanced type as I need the complete setup to be as simple as possible with no wire harness or computer needed.

 

Thanks in advance for any information any of you can give on this subject. Please be as detailed as possible so I will know for sure what I need to look for.

 

Thanks, Trikerbob

More useful info can be found on some of the home built aircraft sites if you search for ej22 conversions for aircraft. There are a few people that will comment on the specifics of everything on here. Also on a side note, napa and a couple other auto parts stores can still get remanned distributors for those.

You can use disty out of certain years of Escorts but the specific years you will have to search for since I am feeling lazy.. Bratsrus knows which ones also.

the years are from 81-87......the earlier years are not electronic,but also unreliable.i was just about the first one to do this for a car application using the escort dizzy.
