Ok so since I'm a newb I'll need some Ratsun help. Like I mentioned before the car never ran after it was painted. Here are some pics of the Weber, I have no idea what kind of Weber it is so lets play guess that carb!

As you can see the choke cable is just randomly floating in the middle of the bay. I always thought if you went with a Weber you changed over to electric choke (correct?) And I don't see any wiring going to the carb so I'm a little confused about the whole set up PO Joe has got goin on here.

IMG_4201_zps83fcc67e.jpg

This fuel line is capped off (Return line?) Is this the correct thing to do?

IMG_4205_zps37e52e7c.jpg

I also feel that there should be a filter there judging by the look of that clamp and its proximity to the split in the fuel line

IMG_4215_zps714d1b4e.jpg

Also this kinked ass (vacuum?) line

IMG_4209_zpsf7e22472.jpg

Hacked wiring

Also these two connectors behind the drivers side headlights

Thanks in advance for the help

 

Cheers

By the pictures of your carb it doesn't have any choke or linkage of any kind.. Looks to be removed.

Top picture ,, yes filter goes there, you should be able to find the exact style that futs there pretty easy.

Bottom is a water line,, if you have the parts guy walk you to the back they usually have a large selection of weird hoses that can be made to fit nicely..

I'm guessing that they are not JDM, but rather TDM

Wow, great find on this one!  The Weber will have the throat size (ie 32/36 or 38/38) stamped somewhere around the side of the lower carb mounting flange (where you see that red paint splattered).  You will need this # to buy a rebuild kit.  And yes, the choke flaps & shafts appear to have been removed.

 

If I'm not mistaken, that 2nd fuel line was for residual fuel back to the gas tank..........the Weber carb does not have that fuel "exit" nipple, so it can't be hooked back up (don't worry about it!).  If you end up detailing your engine compartment, just cut that tube back just under the inner fender well, and cap it there so you can not see it.

I have seen the chokes get removed from very old Webers because the holes the shaft rides in get elongated and cause the choke to bind. It looks like that is the case in the pics? I don't know of a fix for that. If you want a choke you may need to get a new carb with fewer miles. If the holes are still round, look for an old parts carb to scavenge the choke pieces off of. Buying them new won't be cheap.

 

Oh yeah and I'm jealous of your sweet 510.  :w00t:

Thanks for the info bros. The carb is indeed a 32/36 according to the stamp on it

So last night I was planning just to run the fuel pump just into a coffee can, and I barely got anything going through the filter. Could my pump be dead? I may try to blow out the lines

I think this would be worth more stock but that lowered one look cool too. stock hubcaps look good on slammed car

Byron 510 and his crew are up north and they can help out. the510realm website.

 

has gas??? pump may go bad if dryed out.

that kinked line is a water line not a vauum line but I think you know this. nissan made a U shaped hose for this buy might not be aval anymore.  there is another water line that dont use the U shaped hose but you need to plug the lower stat housing. be hones most of these breack if trying to remove so get new ones if possible before tearing apart as the cast alum will crack esp getting the temp sender out.

 

use anti seize on evrything dont be cheap and lazy it helps later on


Throw on some Weber sidedrafts, Rising Sun hood.... call it good

Yes it has my $6 worth plus whatever was in it before. A little tiny bit was trickling into the filter, but fortunately my coworker has a pump he'd sell me so I may be in luck for cheaps

Choke butterflies have been removed. Hard cold starting. Summer car just pump gas twice and it should fire up. You will have to keep on the gas untill warmed enough to idle by itself. This is what the choke does.

 

 

IMG_4209_zpsf7e22472.jpg

 

This is the thermostat by pass hose. Get rid of the kink however you can... this is just wrong.

 

 

 

IMG_4215_zps714d1b4e.jpg

 

No filter? No wonder it won't start. What's to stop dirt getting into the carb?

 

IMG_4205_zps37e52e7c.jpg

 

Return line. The weber does not have a provision for it. It's nice to have but not essential unless you have hot weather vapor lock. Hard re starting a hot motor in the summer.
