Hello, There must be a backstory to this car! did you win it in a raffle? -lol , everybody was a novice once ,and we learn by our mistakes ,so fair play to you
Ive played the carby game and its an old school thing seldom done nowadays save on "classic" cars , nowadays its more mapping , injectors and a laptop or just fit an engine from another type of car .
I expect it is a downdraught carb , replaced with another model?
It is a difficult thing to swap out carb / carbs , it always has been ,especially if trying to tune for more power , each carb was matched to its engine and jetted to suit , often new or modified manifolds were needed ,ignition advance had to be changed and a whole lot of other tests and alterations .Not cheap or easy.
I would guess most garages would give you "THE LOOK " the moment you mentioned carburettor and spend the next hour trying to plug in to an OBD port that wont exist -lol
I think first the back story , lets hope that it isnt the world worst barn find -lol, I think Im a candidate for that ....
