good to hear from you, jon. best of the holidays to you and the family. and i see mentions about a birthday? great- keep 'em coming.
not smog legal, so i will probably have to refit the stock again in a few months. i have been able to incorporate a few of the devices the computer looks at, and the check engine light functions normally, and the egr seems to work(i modified my header to pass exhaust to it).
i'm not sure where to tap vacuum for the evap. canister, but if i get it figured, and it can run clean enough, and the smog tech doesn't look close.........
i tried a couple of years ago, but i hadn't figured the check engine light thing out yet. we'll see.
i can't rely on that stock thing. it has quit on me a few times now, and it is difficult to move when only the idle circuit works.
i'm looking for a "new" stock carburetor. they are very much like samurai carbs. but different. apparently only this model of 1989 sidekick used it, and there weren't that many made.

'89 kick w/some modifications.
some intentional.
suzi the psychic gets me fishing.
