Howdy Everyone,

This is my first time opening a thread with a question, so it may be messed up.

I am the proud owner of an 87 Raider I picked up for $240 on an insurance buy back. It has the 2.6 motor with 5-speed manual.

Something with the carburetor isn't right, it is very sluggish and will go through a tank of gas in about 100 miles. I've read a lot about changing the stock carb for a Weber, but which one exactly? Does anyone have a used Weber carb they would like to sell, I only plan to run this motor for about a year then replace it with a Diesel.

Also, I would like to remove all the vacuum lines that are not needed, does anybody have a vacuum chart showing what's needed and what's not??

It's been a long time since I've done much mechanic work other than general maintenance and was always confused about the vacuum systems on engines anyways.

Thanks for any info or suggestions.
