Looking for a carby diograme for a 18r celica

If they sent you the wrong diagram, then that's probably also the wrong kit - do the gaskets match up?

Worst case, you could use a different carburetor on that car... or if you're ingenious, you could make your own rebuild kit for the carburetor you have.

I have a 1979 Toyota Celica, it sat for years. I have lost my job of 17yrs and i need a good car. I have had a carb, fuel pump gas tank all replaced, the car runs good cold after aprx, 7 miles it chokes...

check the routing of the fuel line if it is near anything that gets hot ie: exhaust,transmission it may be causing a vapor lock also look for rusted fuel lines as they MAY be letting air into the line but not necessarily leaking, if the pump is mechanical operated by the engine( cars run on fuel and air not air and air) it will induce negative pressure in the line thereby sucking air into the line, check where the pump is mounted if it is electric it should be mounted below the bottom of the tank

00 celica gts timing chain problems

The timing chain should not routinely need changing, but perhaps the tensioner does.
Try first to eliminate any other causes, like the bearings in the fan, drive belt idlers, or alternator. A useful tool is a long screwdriver which you can apply to the various areas while placing your ear to the top of it while the motor idles.
Be very careful to keep clear of moving parts like fan blades.
