I tried to drive it to my shop to have an old carb guy tinker with it. The sight bowl shows the correct level but she is still dumping fuel but I didnít make it to the stop light down the street from my home.
Itíll come with time though I guess lol

I have seen people use R1 carburetors on these and somehow squeeze 7000 RPMs out of that little Motor
Not sure how much power you can squeeze out of these I think they were like 60 horse straight out of the box 40 years ago LOL

Default 1978 Chevy LUV Machine

I ordered a new HEI distributor and cap
Denso coil and new spark plug wires from champion with their plugs. Then a carburetor rebuild kit Iím going to try and squeeze some wife out of the original hitachi carb hopefully that will help with my idle
The slight misfire isnít necessarily concerning because it doesnít burn or oil and the Truck only has 76,000 miles

My first truck was a ‘80 LUV 4x4. I loved that thing! I look every once in a while for one to buy cheap and fix up. Just don’t have a place to do it. Hopefully one of these days.

Iím hoping that I can commute in it and learn how to do sheet metal work. Iím like $200 into it and Iím pretty confident that will make it daily driver capable! But we are on a forum and we know the fun is far from over then

So I got all the parts in this week! However they sent me a points style cap for some reason so Iím just gonna find one locally. The distributor I got in is an HEI reman so it should do the trick!
Havenít assembled it yet. Been working like a slave to get my shop finished.
Current progress on that doesnít seem like much to the naked eye but I had to pull the old floor stud ends and pop in some fresh 2x8ís. Redo the romex that was never drilled through the studs for some reason. Laid down some R30 to close he heat off in my hydrodip tank room. Pulled my stove chimney so I can cut around it the cleanest looking way. Now Iím dropping in some 3/4Ē tongue and groove sheets on the overhead loft!

I should of taken pics of the end studs, other than running the romex the end studs were a pain getting a 12í piece of lumber around a chimney stack with a maybe 6.5í vault.
