    It's a carb, but what kind?

    Hi guys! I know you're all excited for another carburetor question, so I'll get on with it. The truck is an 86, 4wd 5 speed 2.6. Doing a top end since head gasket was blown. Getting all of the other parts cleaned up, and now I'm on to the carb. The Mikuni was in the bed of the truck, under about 10 pounds of dirt and grass, so I'm going to take the liberty of pronouncing it dead. The car that was on the engine is not a Mikuni, or a Weber. (I would've been happy to see a 38/38... ); It looks nice, has a fuel bowl viewing glass, and varying venturing diameters, but no markings. Like at all. I've been googling everything I can think of, and all I get are mikuni and Weber's for this engine. Have you guys seen this carb/know what it is? This is a customer truck and he wants it as cheap as possible. So buying a carb outright is probably out of the question. Thanks!7768.jpg7771.jpg7772.jpg7768.jpg7771.jpg7772.jpg

    Is it worth my time? Can you even buy kits anymore?

    Yeah i think theres good support for them due to mazda enthusiasts wanting parts.
    if it came on a thirsty rotary it probably supplies plenty of fuel, but i dont know much about them

    Not seen one on a mm, but chances are someone had a broken Mazda b2600 and thought hey that's another small Japanese truck, that will work

    Think the stud pattern is completely different to the Mikuni. I have rebuilt these carbs before - if the internal linkages lock up they are a disaster to fix. I had one that refused to actuate the secondary and was about to resort to bashing it with a hammer...
