I have a mx32 1979 Cressida. in the process of doing a emissions delete and carb swap.

questions:

I used the 22r adapter plate for the 32/36 carb but only 2 bolt holes lined up. is this right? what adapter plates did you guys use?

how have some of you hooked up the linkage and kick down cable? the linkage rotates the opposite direction of the carb rotation.

vacuum lines? I have 1 line coming off the carb and 3 lines for the vacuum advanced on the dizzy what ones do I plug and or need vacuum too? do I need to pull vacuum from the manifold somehow?

how do you go about removing air pump? does a DE smog effect my heater and ac?

any help would be super!

*2 bolts will not work. You have the wrong adapter.

how have some of you hooked up the linkage and kick down cable? the linkage rotates the opposite direction of the carb rotation.

*I have changed my entire linkage setup in my 76 corolla to work with a weber. I ended up welding the stock arm to a weber piece that came with the carb to make my own setup for throttle and kick down. Weber carbs are known for leaving linkage up to you.

how do you go about removing air pump?

*Unbolt it like an alternator and thow it in the trash.

does a DE smog effect my heater and ac?

*Dont think so.

You will need to reroute the power steering belt if you delete to smog pump. Different length belt, dummy pulley, something like that.

is the 22r plate the wrong one to use or are you saying I did not get a 22r plate in the 1st place?

I got the linkage set up I think.

but now all im getting is back fire . wont start just cranks and back fires sometimes. have moved my dizzy in every position . cant get it running to check timing.

I was saying that whatever one you have pictured doesn't seem to look right. Backfiring is probably a timing issue. Set your NO 1 cyl to TDC and stab your distributor. Refer to shop manual for your specific car.

got it all working. just need to fine tune the timing and carb to be perfect. I have some binding on the linkage so the throttle is stiff to start. here are some pics

It drives Well. The throttle is stiff so there is no easing into the gas. It's just bam 2000 rpm. I'll fix that soon. It's pretty slow to up shift but getting about 85 is not that that hard. Would be silent inside the cab but holes in the exhaust and driver side window missing a weather strip doesn't help.

When deleting the smog pump do you plan on keeping the air injection rail in place or will you plug the holes left behind?

its a 79. the 78 had air injection and they did away with it for the 79. at least according to my Haynes book. also I cant find a rail in my bay or any holes.

Then what "air pump" are you talking about? I was under the impression that all carbureted models had the same equipment.

I still have a air pump. here is the diagram for my 79. don't look at the red boxes. was looking for those parts before I put the carb on.

air pump is the pulley shown. all other vacuum lines are gone now with only 1 going to vacuums advance

after comparing my engine bay to a 100% stock bay I saw where I did at one point have air injection. the holes were plugged with big bolts of unknown size. it must have been done some time ago.

With only two bolts youre going to have massive vacuum leaks at some point after the car runs for a few minutes. You would almost be better off making a new bottom adapter plate. But you may be able to drill where the holes are supposed to go from the flat backside and countersink it after the fact.

Put about 1000miles on it and I have been checking with Carb cleaner and starting fluid for leaks Round the bracket. None so far. But I will get a new plate made at some point. I would rather have all 4 bolts lol
