Default manual choke wobble

Picked up a 1988 samurai with the weber 32/36 carb. The choke operation has some problems. It seems as though some parts are missing from it perhaps, or it wasnt installed correctly. The cable arm wobbles sideways and it binds up, not allowing for the choke cable to function properly. Is this a known issue on installing it wrong, or should I look for missing parts? I have a video, but dont see an option of including it in a post.

When I searched "weber 32/36 manual choke" this came up, don't know if the Samurai has a special/different arrangement.

The first thing I want to explain is that the Samurai never came with a Weber carb, or a manual choke, so what you're looking at is something that a previous owner (or his mechanic) put together.

What this means is that we have very little idea as to how your carb is setup or should be setup...

Installing a Weber 32/36 on a Samurai is a known issue, and it really bugs me that so many vendors offer it. But they do, and everyone thinks they're some kind of magic wand that will give them twice as much power. The 32/36 is at least twice as much carb as what should be on a 1.3L motor, and it can never be adjusted/tuned appropriately for such a small motor. It's essentially the equivalent of dropping a 1000cfm carb on a bone stock Chevy 350. Those Webers are 300+CFM, and stock carbs are around 170CFM. The 1.3L doesn't create enough air velocity through the carb, thus they have to be set up rich to compensate, which then results in fuel washing down the cylinder walls, poor top end, poor MPGs, gas in the oil, etc.

I HIGHLY recommend you ditch the Weber, and replace with stock or the Toyota 3K or 4K carb.

As Fordem said, it's pretty much impossible to determine what the PO did/didn't do on that install, and it's entirely likely that it has something janky on it. Pictures would really help here if you're set on making this work.

I have the Weber 32/36 on my 89 Sidekick JA and the only problem I have is it will flood on a steep climb.
I had the water choke system installed and it did not work well as the linkage would stick and the choke would not open or close on it's own. I installed the manual choke kit and it now works well. If the linkage on the carb seems to be sticking I would recommend using spray carb cleaner on all of the pivot points and shafts, use liberally to get all of the gunk off. Wait until the carb cleaner dries and spray small amounts of Tri-Flow Lube on all of the linkage and butterfly pivot points. Once the Trip-Flow dries it will not attract as much dust as other lubes I have tried and the lubrication will last a long time.
Hope this helps.

Thanks for all of the advice fellas. I finally found that several parts were lose and it was missing a washer in the linkage. I would have chosen a different carb personally but it was already installed and itís a low budget vehicle to use on the Ranch. Most of its problems were poor Mechanic Work done by prior owner. Replaced adapter plates, gaskets, and fuel tank sending unit. And lots of re-wiring. Hopefully thatís most of the bugs. I plan on running it a lot soon to see what else surfaces.
