Question about 1987 Suzuki Samurai
Have a 1987 suzuki sammie, and when reaching shifting acceleration, it seems as tho it gets stuck at over 5k rpm. we have to turn it off to stop. can also replicate the problem by moving the pump arm, sudden increase, actually tops out the rpm. carb is new about 3 years ago.
Either a vacuum hose is hooked up wrong or a vacuum leak. Also make sure it's not leaking around the carb base. You can spray carb cleaner around the base while the engine is running. If the rpms drop then you know you have a leak there. Dont spray a lot, just enough to wet the area some.
If you have to stock Hitachi carb its a miss or go when have one rebuilt or buy one rebuilt. There's no new ones out there unless you got really really really lucky. There's only so much of the carb that can be replaced (usually never the electrical compononts) and if it was ever rebuilt correctly.
