I need to replace my Samurai 1986 carb. WHat is the recommended? Holley, Webber ???
Well I'm in the same boat on my stock 86. runs great until the float evidently sticks and it runs out of fuel. let it sit 10 minutes or beat on the carb and your off. My house is on a 45 degree hill so I hear the webber is a poor choice. any ideas?

Depending on where you are, and what your emission regulations are, you could try the 3K Toyota carbs.

why not strip the carb and repair it? Sticking floats are usually due to dirt, or a deteriorated needle (or somones done something really stupid and bent something) and a decent clean and a new needle is usually all thats required.

considered that but all the hoses and electrical BS worries me. also on researching I heard enough about the stock not liking slopes and my whole yard is 30-45 degrees. seriously thinking about the propane kit.

I ordered the Toyota 3K kit from certified machine and installed it yesterday.
WOW! great kit, very complete, fantastic instructions. I've only put ten miles on it so far but it is a terrific set up. wish I had found it years ago.
