Well, after more research into this carb, I found out it is a Holley 5200 series. This carb, it turns out, is a popular upgrade for the Mazda B2000/2200 and the Datsun 1200 motor. The Holley 5200 is a licensed Holley clone of a Weber 32/36 built for Ford for the mid to late '70's Mustang II, Ranger and other models. Hmmmm, I thought. So I bought a Weber adapter plate for the Samurai and it fit! I then made a throttle cable mounting plate, found a 3/16" hose barb fitting that fit into the fuel intake port on the carb (it normally takes a screw in filter but the fuel fitting was too big), plugged a bunch of vacuum lines and fired it up. It runs great! :) I haven't taken it out on the road, yet, because I haven't got an air cleaner on it. I think the air cleaner box for a Weber 32/36 should fit nearly perfect.
 The engine ran a little rough at idle with the distributor vacuum advance plugged into manifold vacuum so I changed it to ported vacuum and it idles much smoother. Once I get the air filter assembly, I will road test it and work out any kinks. My initial feeling is that you can add this carb to the list of alternative carbs to upgrade the Samurai.
 Seems like I scored pretty well with this "Ebay mistake".

After doing a bit of research I found that the Ebay seller sent me a Holley R-6666-1 two barrel carb that fits mid 70's Ford and Mercury 2.8L V-6's. These carbs are listed for 2 1/2 times what I paid. Hmmmm.
I can't seem to find the corolla carb I wanted, anywhere. Looks like I'm back to square one.  :(

Thought I would revive this thread as I took the advice of Boxcar and ordered the yota carb from the ebay seller mentioned above. Um, I think he sent the wrong carb. What I got is a Motorcraft 2 barrel progressive carb that will not even come close to mounting on the Samurai. The bolt pattern is larger and the venturi's are much larger. I ordered a 2 barrel carb for a '78 corrola with the 1200cc motor. I don't know what this carb fits but I am inclined to keep it as I may find some use down the line.
 Boxcar, do you happen to have the part # of the carb you ordered from robbob36 from ebay? Thanks.

That's not exactly what I meant. The base gasket needs to be modified to fit the vacuum port on the new carb.
 I think I have a gasket that was modified for the Yota carb laying an a bench at my shop.
I will take a picture of it and post it later....Boxcar...

Spray wd-40 around the base when running. If it smooths out that is it.
I think I had a motorcycle that was heavier!!

I just did this swap yesterday after reading the post last week. It seems to have more pep in its step but the olny problem I am having is the idle is way eratic. I cant find a vaccum leak, checked the timing. has anyone else had this problem? If so whad was the solution?
