My rebuild is coming along pretty decent, besides a few hiccups but my new problem is this when I crank the key over to start it's spraying gas out of top of carb. My only thinking is I got the valves too far open somehow and it's forcing it out or my vaccuum lines are way off kinda stuck and need some advice if any one could help
I can't see inside the window really, I'm not 100% sure if it's spraying out of the tube that is angles up since I'm the only person working on it, since I didn't rebuild the carb but everything else has been done it could be like someone said above and the float chamber is stuck I'll work on opening up a photobucket and uploading a some pictures
I thought I had it right there's only one way to put on the cranks and the top dot lines up with the line and the key way should be facing up/the ru with the line lined up with the dot and the distributor only goes on one way or it's 180 off but the rotor is facing the #1 plug
Isn't the firing order 1 next to the timing belt 2 middle 3 to the distributor and the rotor/plugs are 1 facing towards the firewall 2 down at the ground and 3 towards the grill
Timing was way off on the crank I think it moved when I was tightening the timing belt. But now that it's started I got a huge vacuum leak coming from the carb. And I noticed that there is gas leaking out of the side where the carb meets the intake on the side where the choke is.
Would I have to pull the carb off and lay another gasket down or is there a silicone I can use to hold it until I swap carbs? I read somewhere on a thread saying rtv is not what I want to use since the gas won't mix well
I was just thinking on the side cause there is a kinda screech like the belt is loose but it's coming from the carb area and I was thinking it was a leak any idea what it could possibly be? My dad says it's a bad vacuum leak but I plugged it all up besides by the leak where the carb meets the intake
It is coming from the carb to the intake I put a layer of ultimate grey gasket maker said it was resistant to gas not to fix it but to pin point where the noise is coming from I only applied it on the outside where it meets. Now I need to buy new gasket for it
Is it possible to buy a new rubber spacer that goes between the 2 or do I really even need that?

Yes you need that black part, however it's plastic not rubber so it can be cleaned and reused, unless it's cracked or something Good job finding the leak. Another way to find them is spray water around where you think the leak is and see if the engine reacts by stumbling, then you have an idea of where it is.
Thanks that's a good idea I've never even thought of that. I'm just stoked that it is running again it's been a long time since I've seen it ran. When I bought it it only ran on one cylinder. Do you believe dusty justy has that you can order? Or is it something I can drill out of 1/4" plastic?

It's called a phenolic spacer. It's not exactly plastic. Your best best is a junkyard. Dusty's Justys may have them, or you might try a dealer or OEM parts supplier. The Subaru GL from '85-'89 used the same one, so you might be able to find one for that car more easily.

justytrudeau: FWD means you don’t have to worry about any problems that can come up with the AWD system. AWD is clutch in snowier climates, but the pre 90’s models have carbeuraters instead of being fuel injected. Carbs can cause some issues in the winter time.

justytrudeau: Anyone put LED's in their instrumental panel? I have to remove the whole dash to get to 'em, figured it'd put off having to do it again by a few years.

Justy1200cc: bredmirror, if you do it you would need the suzuki transmission. I think it's searchable on the forum for more details

bredmirror: Thats what Im planning to do. However, if the engine and the transmission won't fit then Im just gonna upgrade the stock engine and get a tubo kit for it.
