You need to hone the accelerator pump well and adjust the throw of the pump rod as much as possible to get more fuel. Of course that is just a guess based on 100's of rebuilds i have done over the years. I have also found that Japanese carbs seldom turn out when rebuilt.

1986 Toyota new rebuilt motor won't pass smog at


It depends which emission you are failing on but I suspect that it is either CO or NOx. If it is NOx, then it is quite possible that you have a problem with your EGR valve or the ignition timing is incorrect. If you failed CO, you may have a dirty air filter or indeed, a bad carb, but I would need to know the actual gas and readings to be certain.

Carb runnin rich on 88 nova w 1.6 L does carb have adjustment screws for air fuel mix or is it a solenoid only thing left to fix to pass smog


Your car should have fuel injection not a carburetor. The air/fuel ratio is controlled by the onboard computer. If it is running rich, I would suspect an O2 sensor, perhaps a dirty air filter, needs new spark plugs, or even a new catalytic converter. You need to have the computer scanned for trouble codes. The codes will give us a place to start looking for the cause of the rich mixture.

As far as I know. Anything 1994 and under don't have to go through emissions anymore, just safety. But, like countrysi248 said, it might depend on what state you live in. Best wishes to ya.
