California smog is a PITA. My car runs smooth, but it is WAY too rich. At Idle the car passes with no problems, but once the RPM's go up CO goes up too high. Way too Rich off idle.

Image
I am stuck with an aisan carb because there are no legal alternatives. Does anyone on here know how to tune the mixture for ranges above idle? If not, It looks like I will be paying $325 for a rebuild on an already rebuilt carb...

On a better note, I got to see the bottom of my car while it was on a lift. One of the many pics I took:

Nice build.
Do you know if they had more te51 parts at the junkyard?
I am looking for a dash with gauges and a pedal box from a manual

The car was gone the next time I went. I had the pedal assy. 1/2 way out.

Those 2T engines are some of the best ever made and the easiest to work on. Changing a head gasket takes an hour or less. I had a 1974 Carina with a 2T, back in the U.K. and had the carb in peices on the side of a road in Northern France. Put back together (wasn't the issue) in minutes and found the problem anyway.

Not sure about the smog requirements but good luck with the Corolla

I love the 2t engine so far. From what I hear, the weber carb is a really good one. I need an adapter and I should be good to go. I kinda wish I could learn how to adjust the richness of the aisan carb above idle because I have access to a complete TE51 liftback that has been sitting for years.

sadly, no. I happen to get one that had sat on a shelf since 1983. The box had dust on it, but everything inside was mint condition. The kit was missing the adapter though, so it looks like I'm going to have to make one. If you need to pass CA smog... you can always get a newer Weber and grind the ID smooth, then use a letter punch kit and punch the info from this one. :lol: I doubt anyone in a smog shop would know the difference.

I started the spacer to make my weber fit. Pics will explain best:
This is the plan:
Image
Cut 6011 alum. with bandsaw:
Image
Drill holes with drill press. Here I am pilot drilling with a smaller bit to keep the holes aligned.
Image
IT FITS!
Image
Mocked up:
Image
Plenty of space in back:
Image
I rounded the edges. I would like to make this look as if it came from the factory when its done.
Image
I drilled the front 2 holes of the carb so they now fit the wide pattern, and it aligns the ports as close as I can get them to the stock manifold. Next I will drill the middle narrow holes and thread them for studs. Then I will drill the 2 ports and make them match the weber's to the manifold's.

Good choice on the spacer. The old toyota cast isn't that terrible, but it's still old, oil-soaked cast that is a pain to weld clean.

Those renderings look familiar. What 3d modeling software did you use? :lol:

Agreed. I think this way is more stright forward and it will be clean.

I was not happy with the progress on my spacer. I had a bad plan on how to do the middle large holes. After working on it for a while, I realized that I can make another one for less time than it would be done, and it would be a cleaner job. So in a very short time I made one. I like the way this one lines up better than the old.
This one got a little beat up while trying to get the middle of the big holes out:
Image
Lets just try again:
Image
There we go. Nice and clean:
Image
I hope to have this weber on the car soon. I have temp. registration on my car till January.

It has 38k original (non rolled over) miles.


Those must have been some rough 38,000 miles.

Nice job on the adapter plate so far, your MS Paint drawing made me feel like a hack, lol. I went to school for that and I'd be lost without Autodesk Inventor or Solidworks.

-Thanks guys

Things are slow going with my car as I am prepping my house for sale. I have installed the Weber carb. I had to make the adapter from previous posts, and a throttle sinkage setup. Here they are on the car and a video of it running like a tractor. Enjoy:

Made these:

Installed:

All buttoned up with the air cleaner on:
