Looking for an Asian Carb

Well after this weekend my dad and I drove over 900 miles on my Land Cruiser to eastern Oregon to go hunting. The mpg we got was 8 with 33's going around 65 - 70mph! I know the 2f isn't the most efficent of motors but i know that i can get at least 12 mpg or 13 mpg. I have a 2f motor with a header, h.e.i. distributor, and a 38mm weber carb. I am thinking that the 38mm weber carb needs to go and that i should return back to the stock asian carb.

Does anyone have a good running carb that they want to sell?? My 2f came out of a 79 fj40 but i'm pretty sure the manifold is the same for all 2f motors. Any suggestions would be greatful, and no a 350 swap is not an option

I've got one out of an 85 FJ60 that's been on the shelf for quite some time. Will that work?

Don't know, I traded someone some crap for it. You could spend $25 and rebuild it tho to be sure. I'll see if my crappy digi will take pics.

The Weber should be much better than that. Is it set up correctly? What jets? if you want to switch over to a ASAIN,as you should, you will need the pedal linkage assy, the choke assy, air cleaner etc.... It might be a PITA> To get the carb contact kruzertek here on PBB or Jim C @ FJ40jim @aol.com. Jim has carbs already rebuilt for sale. What you want is a 75 or 76 carb non cali. You can also try NARDIK in AUS for new NON USA carbs but last I heard they did not have any 2F carbs. Go ASAIN or Holley. he weber is a pain.

Even when i had my 78 which was all stock, demsogged but had the original intake manifold and distributor the weber would shoot too much gas through. I'll contact those guys to see what they have. Here in Oregon I don't have to worry about smog regulations because there is none

The webers need a pressure regulator on them. I kept tuning mine, but it was still fouling the plugs really bad. Put a regulator on it, and it works much better now.

I could respond to the Weber and all that, but I will simplify by saying, "Go Aisin!!!!". And wob. I think you were masking a problem by putting a regulator on your Weber.

I could get 8MPG out of an Aisin that was froze up and mounted upside down!!

I can rebuild it for you if you like. I am getting behind as those that have carbs with me can vouch for.
Oh, and my wife had a root canal gone bad today so I have to watch the rat pack of 8 kids. (Most are daycare, but still have to be supervised).

Talk to you soon,

P.S. I'll be building into the night for those that are waiting.
I apologize. Thanks for your patience.

I'm in the Go Aisin camp. just did 300 miles in the fj60 with a newly rebuilt stock Aisin carb, 70mph almost the whole time(even up passes), averaged 15mpg. Stock 2f, 4.10's, 33's.....best bucks I have ever spent on the 60. Best it ever got before was 12mpg and it now runs SO smooth and has MUCH more power.

Even my 82 fj40 with a Aisin thats never been rebuilt will get 11-12mpg in town and 16-17mpg on the highway, stock 2f, 3.70's, 33's.

See that's another thing soon as my dad or i would hit a hill and we would lose all power and slow down to 45 mph! Maybe my dad had a good reason to call it a Green Weeny
