1982 Tercel carburetor

I'm new here , sorry for not introducing myself first. I bought an 82 Tercel a few months ago and I love it , but its starting to idle poorly and get quite stuttery off the line. The mechanic says the carb is worn and over fueling...

I know its probably impossible to find , but does anyone have a lead on a carb to my 82 Tercel ? The motor only has 230xxxkms, it would be a shame to let it die.

Thanks in advance for any help ,

Cheers

Carbs don't wear out. They get congested with dried gas and seals wear out and leak. You just need a rebuild kit and manual.
