Well I'm not quite sure what your asking, I think your saying that your carb bowl is running out of fuel. Sounds like your carb needs a good cleaning. Poss. A clogged fuel filter, or on the outside low fuel pressure.

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 an 83 corolla with weber carburetor that sputters and has white smoke coming out of the carburetor before shutting off. Is this a timing issue?

1983, a very old car. and worse a carb. (will need cleaning kit)
E80 or E90 (83' is both as option)???????
what country, lots of variance by , COUNTRY!
is compression good. check that.
which engine,? (skip diesel)
1.3 L 2A I4
1.3 L 2E I4
1.5 L 3A I4
1.6 L 4A I4
1.8 L 1C diesel I4

e90 had
Gasoline: 1.3 L I4
1.5 L I4
1.6 L I4 after posting engine, and Weber model part number.
we can answer with alacrity.

my guess is that white smoke is from engine back fire to the carb.
this caused by 2 things , bad spark or cam timiing.
or a very lean carb.

check compression 150psi or more.
check spark timing,
check cam timing if compression is low.
check for Vacuum leaks at this will cause the engine to go lean
at idle. on all carbs.

Toyota hiace 1982 18R motor not starting when cold

Sounds like the automatic choke is not functioning properly. Take off the air cleaner before starting on a cold day. Looking into the carburetor, the round choke plate should be nearly closed. If not, check the linkage to see if it is disconnected or hanging up on something. If it is OK, look down the carburetor with the chock plate held open, operate the throttle linkage and see it it shoots a stream of raw gas down the carburetor. If not, the accelerator pump will need to be replaced. That stream of gas aids in starting when cold and in acceleration (as opposed to a gas in mist form that it idles and runs on). An accelerator pump is included in a Carburetor kit and usually looks like a round flat rubber diaphragm.
