Default 86 Suzuki samurai fuel or carb problems

Ok, so I just got an 86 samurai tin top. I don't know much about carbureted vehicles so this is a struggle for me.

Here is what is happening with my rig. When I got it, the carburetor was all messed up sticking and missing springs, so I bought 2 used carbs and made 1 good one. I installed it and now when I start it, it turns over, fires up and then dies. Sometime I can start it and it will idle up and down real sperattic but then it dies after 10 secs.

I've noticed that its not getting fuel into the carb. I've changed the fuel pump, filter, egr, plugs, wires, distributor, rotor, PVC valve and a few other parts. I've cleaned it and tried swapping the wiring harness to the carb and it still does the same thing. All vacuum lines are hooked up to specs.

Does anyone has any ideas or help?

I do not have any idea why this is happening with you you cannot fix it by yourself just go to a good reputed car care shop. they will fix it up.

check the plunger of the carburator and adjust the needle for smooth fuel supply

Look. The stock Hitachi carb is a night mare when it comes to rebuilding. By the sound of things .You have already figured that out.
If you must pass smog , this may be you're only alternative.

Default try this carb

Trail Tough in Medford, Oregon has them rebuilt for $329.00 with a $100.00 core charge. Try this link for them:

Remanufactured Carb

Hope this helps.
I am having problems with the carb on both of my Sammy's. My tin top is the worst of the two. I also have to be smog legal in my county where I live.
