I'm thinking of getting an 88 samurai but was told by the current owner that it just started to idle high (3000-4000). he adjusted it down as far as it could go but no luck. he thinks it needs a rebuild. Since it has 33'' i was thinking the weber 2 barrel and be done with it. however I don't want to get it and the carb if there could be a considerable larger prob. Any suggestions to look at when I look at the vehicle??

I'm sure you've all answered these idle problems many times over so thanks in advance for any suggestions!!!:D

very high idle

3000 to 4000 idle speed is EXTREEMLY high. The only thing I could think of that could cause this is stuck linkage or throttle cable. or maybe broken throttle plate.
good luck

missing spring

Hi,
I have a 93 and it had the same problem. Turned out there was a spring missing on a linkage behind the carb below the throttle cable. We replaced it with a ball point pen spring and the problem went away.

Hope this helps.
