Title: 87 4ac
Post by: blam827 on August 22, 2009, 08:20:39 PM
Hey guys. Ive got a 4ac with 265000 miles on it. I have two more years left on the emissions. Right now my carberator has a vaccuum leak at the throttle shaft. I was wondering if anyone has used the webber replacement and if it will pass emmisions. I live in Ga. so I dont think they check for original equimpment. I have a used 4ac out of a FWD corrolla, but the carb is different. I did use the EGR valve though. Ive had this car since 1990 and my son will be 16 in two years and hoping to let him have it. If anyone has any comment on the webber plaese let me know. Just gettting an original replacement is a real pain in the ass. Thanks in advance.

This site has some information that might help you find some alternative carburetors to fit the car.

Getting your hands on an original Weber carb is going to be tough or expensive, usually both.  The Triumph guys use the same type of carburetor (same series at least) as the Toyota.  A search of their forums or including Triumph in your search might point at some possible replacements or rebuild kits.

Thanks for  the input. I found a rebuilt original carb through carb specialties. It was only $350......!!!  I also put in a working EGR valve and a new cat converter. Still didnt pass emmissions. So I know a guy who knows a guy. Hopefully everything will be ok. It runs better now though.
