Only one I know of that still has much of early 80's stuff is : Toyota-Nissan-Honda recycled auto & truck parts at 3224 S 40th st, Phoenix. 602-437-1222. Used to be a decent pick n pull. Few years ago they would not let you go out in the yard alone. Couple of months ago they let me go out and pull what I wanted and the price was fair. John

bad/old gas started this, fresh gas it got better, tried carb cleaner and seafoam got worse

It has a couple of things going on: #1, no fuel at idle, the adjustment screw makes zero difference. Leading possibility is the idle cut off, but also could have idle passage(s) plugged. #2, The pin that was stuck in the hole was from the needle, the spring was missing, we made one from a random spring, this isn't working 100% at controlling the float level, so isn't going to meter fuel correctly. There is also the possibility of a vacuum leak, but hard to tell at this point.

If it were mine, would get a carb kit, take the carb apart, dip it, blow out every passage confirming that they all flow. Figure out/solve the idle flow problem, if it is the problem replace or disable the idle cut off. Assemble using the FSM, making sure all jets, etc, are in the proper location and all adjustments are correct.

now it will idle and I dont have to feather the gas anymore, so its running better, I still agree that it will need a rebuild.

what do I dip it in? maybe lacquer thinner? or something stronger?
who would have a good rebuild kit?

thanks!!

I use Berrymans Chem Dip, have a can here when you want to dip it. IIRC the kit that we stole parts out of came from NAPA?
