Weber or Stock carb?

In need of a full rebuild on the stock carb on a 77'....Would I be better of with a nice weber on there?Or is the stock carb pretty good?She will also have a header and a mild cam.

Also,anybody know how to route(or what I can trash)this vacuum mess at the carb?And can I just toss the smog pump?

Thanks guys!

if your thowing a cam/header on there you'd be silly not to get a weber. the modding the stock carb is not for the faint of heart. the weber is easy to get and change jets and other parts to deal with the need for more fuel correctly.


the weber can do away with the rats nest, but that also depends on how far you go.




if possible try to find a 1 piece adapter, the carb kit if bought new comes with instructions for the vacuum lines.


you can fit a supercharger and a weber in there too...

Where did you get the manifold?I was thinking a progressive weber,also not side-draft...And was it easy to make the linkage?

More pics of that motor PLeasE...

Was thinking of pulling the motor,as she was spitting oil out the front when I was cranking her...Not driven since 88' and has 14k miles..I'm thinking the seals are dried out.Whatcha think?

thats about the best pic i have of my celica engine. you can still buy that manifold through LC engineering but its spendy, you might get lucky and find one on ebay or maybe through a weber retailer for cheap.


the linkage is part of the kit and uses the stock stuff



and as long as you dont have struts this WILL fit in there too







read my wagon build up thread for more pics and fitment issues for a supercharger in a corona


as far as a rebuild goes, if its been that long seals have prolly dried out. tho ive seen a few times where the bolts back out a bit from temp changes over the years, and thats all that was needed to fix leaks.
but if your throwing oil off the main pulley a new seal is needed.
