Carb question

Won't run? Engine, cooling system, fuel pump, carb, clutch, tranny, brakes, etc. The old messages from the NPCA 'Engine & Mechanical' category are here.

I have a 1980 Patrol imported from Colombia The carburetor is a Hitachi DCH 340. Is there a replacement carb for this other than Hitachi?

A Weber 32/36 will be a good choice, and probably there are others as well. Fitting the air cleaner housing will always be the more challenging part.

The Hitachi you have has the secondary body vaccum actuated, and prone to problems.

I did some research and there are several Weber 32/36. Which one do I choose? I appreciate the help.

I personally have not done anything with a Weber, but kept the reference of one that was used by a member in a now disappeared forum: Weber 32/36 DGV 5A
