Hi, so i have a 1982 Corolla ke70 that i recetly bought. The problem with it has that it did not idle at all.

According to the seller who is a known Toyota guy the carb were at fault and needed to be changed. So he sent me a brand new aftermarkt carb which i mounted, but the problem is still present. It idles if i got the choke pulled out when its warm and warmish. We have tried adjusting the fuel mixture without it getting any better. Tried adjusting the ignition aswell. At low rpm's it want to die and is spitting, but on higher revs it runs great.

Me and My Friends think its a fuel issue but we dont know what. Anyone got any ideas?

Just a suggestion, but, spitting and the other symptoms you mention could be because of something like inlet gasket not sealing, extra air being drawn in weakening mixture
