Fb parts

Post by Festa662 » Sun Dec 07, 2014 2:15 am

So having recently bought a carb rebuild kit of ebay im dissapointed with royal mail as always, it took 5 days from justice illinois to london and a further 9 to get to me this may increase as ive been promised monday fingers crossed . and to boot customs have put 3 quid on royal snail a further 8 !! Ive ordered loads of stuff from the states and always expect the charges but 11 quid on some paper gaskets is a rip off! Ok rant over my question is there any body in the uk/europe who has a decent parts list for an fb as all my local motor factors can supply basic plugs etc but thats it thanks fez

Hi mate,

The Mazda dealers are useless unless you know the part number of the item you want.
The parts lists are freely available on here from www.foxed.ca

I have some spares, as do a few others. Quite often it's easier to just ask on the forum if there's something you want.
PS I've got carb kits

I've got quite a bit of engine stuff.

You should gimp test the motor before giving up on it. I've got a tester.

Wen i bought the car it started but would only run on choke and had a poor idle got a second hand carb of ebay of a runner but was warned it had been stood a while car idled but only on a quarter choke tinkered with it got it at a steady 900 idle and died when hot and was a pig to start then the primarys jammed and it reved its nuts off so i decided a full carb re-build was in order upon stripping found secondary levers where in the wrong order so it jammed the primarys when they were half way! Hence the revving also when choke was full on the primarys were oped 1/2 inch and a ccording to haynes should be 3.5 to 4 thou !! Ive now adjusted the fast idle rod and will see how it runs when my carb kit gets here but was the hot stalling due to the carb issues or compression is the main question what do you think? Fez

Dunno without seeing it. Could be anything. Where do you live?

Start with the carb. "Gimp" :roll: (comp) testing is the only way to be sure.

The official Mazda compression testers will cost a heap of hard earnt money :lol: I've seen this guy sells them occasionally when he manages to build some, you just need to keep an eye out on the FB page :geek: . I'm sure others will mention if there are other ways to test the compression aye :D

As above, yes you can but very expensive so not worth the investment unless you make it pay for itself. There are specialists out there who can do it.
Tool has one but its a long drive, is your car on the road ?
