Question about 1990 Daihatsu Charade
Have a 5 door 1985 daihatsu charade g 11. i usually have to replace my distributor point time and time again. what could be the cause of points burning. could you please specify the right distributor condenser to be used. finally i would like to know if it is possible to replace the caburator with another type probably from another car of any make that would exactly fit in my ride.
You must put a smear of high temperature grease on the lobes where the rubbing block makes contact; otherwise the block will wear away rapidly causing the gap to close. Something like white molybedenum grease is the go.
I suggest you replace the screws that hold the points assembly with socket head (Allen) screws so that you can get some decent purchase without burring the screw head.
The best solution is to source a secondhand electronic dizzy and coil from a G200 series Charade. You will never have to worry about points ever again and the low end torque gain is quite noticeable. You will need to run an extra wire from the coil to the dizzy and tape off the wire from the starter motor, but that's about as hard as it gets.
Why would you want to replace the Aisan carby? It does the job pretty well, so long as the hoses are connected correctly and the various adjustment screws calibrated.
