BarryA Posted September 4, 2008 Report Share Posted September 4, 2008 Background: 79 5 spd L20B 620, stock w/ all CA emissions including original Hitachi carb. Ran ok, passed CA smog w/ very good numbers a few weeks ago. Bought a used Weber 32/34 DFTA CA emissions legal carb, looked ok from a general inspection, installed it, engine starts but won't run below about 1500 rpm. Discovered that the electric idle shut off solenoid wasn't opening, figured that was probably part or all of the problem. Can't get a replacement locally, so removed the Weber until I can get a solenoid & reinstalled the Hitachi. Hooked up the carb and all of its hoses, etc back to exactly the way it was - engine does exactly the same thing it was doing with the Weber - starts but won't run below about 1500 rpm, warm or cold. Can't find anything out of place or disconnected, no cracked or open vacuum lines, does't matter whether the air cleaner is installed or removed with the vacuum lines plugged. Never touched the ignition or any wiring other than that which goes to the carb - anybody got any thoughts on this? Quote Link to comment
