it has about 250 thousand on the clock , am just looking to remove the emission gear and clean up the mess under the bonnet . all the vacume gear is shorely not nessecary.
how are you going with my question?
any deails can be emaied to my addresss.
i am not submitted to emmision testing where i am. so is not a problem.
years ago i used to remove emmision parts to improve performance and ease , of being able to work on just a basic carby. there must be some gear that can be removed.
I am prepared to accept a bit more fuel use for a bit more response.
I believe that these carby have a vacum secondary, am i able to hard wire this so that i can get some better response?
also , Can i remove the choke butterfly altogether?
i realise that this will give me a few starting problems in cold weather but this is not an issue.
Can you start to see where i am comeing from.
Hi again Toby -Thank you for your reply..I see what you are saying - You can then remove what you wish..inc the choke butterfly - it really would be a trial and error thing Toby - but it sounds like you have dealt with such things before... ;)I dont really have much info on the old carby ones I dont know if you have a manual on it or suchlike - but that would tell you flow directions on the emissions side etc - Its a long time since I worked on the carb model !It may be an idea to try and source and fit a different carb for it Toby - if getting more power/ more torque is what you are after... I dont know if you would be thinking about that -On the other hand - a rebuild / a proper pro rebuild of the carb would get what you are after - I did a quick search for and found this HERE that may be of interest to you..Of course you can do lots to the engine but the carb would be a start -Let me know what you think / or if I can help you anymore at all....Best Rgds - MIKE..
We chatted a while back about my vitara carby.
I have since had a play, and have come to realise that you can remove most of the emmision crap on the standard carbies without any grief.
I now have improved performance and better fuel economy.
All is good , it starts really well and drives great.
