    I am looking for any info on a carburator for a 83' toyota pu with a Buick v6/turbo 350 trans. It currently has a Holley. I do not like the Holley for the obvious off-road reasons. I am thinking about the Carter/Edelbrock AFB, or possibly a Weber 36/38. Any comments would be appreciated.

    Don't touch the AFB. It's even worse.

    What did the Buick motor come with stock? If it was the Rochester dual jet or q-jet, go with that. I'm pretty sure I have a Regal with that motor at the shop, I can look on Monday.

    Why not fix up your Aisan original. You wont find a better carb for a cruiser. Some owners with webers claim a big improvement over the weber but I think thats to be expected if the Aisan was worn out.Pirate 4x4 had a long thread on this subject recently and many wished they had never swapped over to a weber although there were a few weber supporters they were outnumbered.
