Question about Cars & Trucks
Runs like s**t, loses power and then backfires. im guessing i just need to tune the carburetor.
I really doubt the car is the problem, if it runs poorly at wide open throttle the carb is not the problem, check the fuel pressure 1st, it should be around 5-7 PSI, if that is ok then you may have a problem in the ignition system.

At 60,000 you should have all the major things done if you haven't already:
oil change(every 3000)
air filter change(every 15,000)
coolant flush(every 30,000)
spark plugs and wires(every 30,000)
transmission fluid & filter change(every 30,000)
brakes (as needed)
PCV valve (every 20,000)
You can wait until about 75000 miles to do your timing belt.
Hope this helps

If we are talking the three cylinder CB23 engine the mixture screw is hard to get to and has an anti tamper shroud to stop prying fingers.
The Aisan carby is pretty reliable and problems with them on these engines is usually due to improper vacuum hose connections, or improperly adjusted idle, fast idle and deceleration screws.
A/F ratio is around the standard 14.7, but being a carby you will not get consistent mixtures because the jets sizes are fixed . On an EFI engine you can control the fuel flow, but not so with jets.
If you do decide to give your carby a birthday make sure you only buy the Daihatsu genuine, because the after market units have issues with quality. The minor rebuild kit part No 0421287704000 and the major overhaul kit with plunger, needles, gaskets, clips, etc is part No 0421187729000.
If it was me I'd be concentrating on the hoses, the PCV valve, contact points in the dizzy and better spark plugs first. If you want much better idling and a bit better pull get an electronic dizzy and coil from a G200 series Charade.

1. With transmission in Neutral or park, start engine and warm to normal operating temp. turn eng,and all accessories off. connect Tachometer. Connect timing light to no 1 spark plug wire.
2. Disconnect and plug fuel vapor canister purge hose and EGR vacuum hose. Start and ensure idle is 900 RPM. adjust idle as required. Check ignition timing ( 12 @ 900)
3. If adjustment is required, loosen distributor hold down bolt and turn until timing is within specification. Tighten distributor hold down bolt and recheck timing. adjust idle speed as required.
hope this helps
