The conversion depends on whether or not you have to be smog compliant where you live. If smog is an issue, you will not be able to run a Weber and pass smog. If you must smog then you will need to stay with the Hitachi carb.
Trail Tough in Medford, Oregon sells remanufactured carbs. $329.00 for the carb and a $100.00 core charge. This the link for it:
I was just up there in March and saw the quality of the rebuilds. There were five of them on the shelf at that time.
Hope this helps. I am also fighting with my carb on both of my Sammy's, the Tin Top being the worst of the two.
