To avoid the running out of fuel in the carb,one simple suggestion. Fit a Check valve ( metallic one ) between the fuel pump and carburetor.Always the non return to be on the side of the carburetor.

I need a diagram of fast idle link assembly on weber 34DGEC carb

Tammy , weber has the pages to fix webers, why not read there.
its all there. for custom carbs,
fixing cars is a labor of love, if not, dont buy custom cars.
and for sure webers.
TAKE Photos of your work, its free now , no Kodachrome.
the car came with Autolite/motorcraft, carter or Rodcheter carb.
not webers.

idle, all carbs you can set the idle to zero. with the fly plate closed
and the engine stalls.
so does your butterfly plate close.

IDLE DOWN, HOT or cold engine,? is the choke OFF?
if the choke is off you can starve it of all air. at the stop screw.
if not, then the throttle cable is tight,
or you have air leaks in the plenum somewhere.
but air leaks cause lean, but with a bad tuned rich weber, it will race with air leaks, bingo???? im a carb o holic. retire.

1986 plymouth horizon bad gas mileage

I really can't give much advice. Since you have modified the original configuration, you're really on your own. If you had a 4 gas analyzer you could monitor the exhaust gas and figure out if the carb is adjusted as lean as possible, and if the timing is correct for what you are trying to do.
Do you know if the vac advance is working on the engine computer ?
And the air intake heater on the air cleaner ?

I have a 22re toyota pick up with weber carburetor it takes a long time to start in the mornings battery even dies sometimes before starting what do you recomend

Check that your choke is working properly.
Start with a tune-up, new gas filter, air filter if dirty, oil and oil filter, spark plugs, distributor cap and rotor. If your spark plug wires are old, buy a new set, or test yours with an ohmmeter.
If still bad, check if your fuel pump is putting enough gas into the carburetor. Take the gas line off at carb. and check volume flow into a container. Also the carb may need adjustments-maybe the fuel level in carb. bowl is too low-would need to raise float height. Check if the needle valve and seat at the gas inlet to carb is not clogged or stopped from trash or debris.
Look down the throat of carb and watch for gas jetting out when you open the throttle to wide open-you should see gas spurt downward, if not, the carb needs some work to it.
Is your choke adjusted right? Sounds like it may not be-the choke flap should be nearly closed when starting, partially open after running, and fully open after the engine warms up.
Other problems could be weak ignition components-possibly a coil or igniter-what Toyota calls an ignition module.
Post back with what you find. Webers are great carburetors-much better than stock.
