Hello all! I'm new to the forum, but I've been reading and watching for over a year. I bought an 87 sprint er last year thinking it would make a great project. It started and ran fine until it warmed up. Then it it idled real rough. I got onto the teamswift website and read all I could on my car and possible solutions to my problem. I then tore my carb apart and the car hasn't run since.

So my question is, before I go to the parts store and order a reman. carb, is there anybody willing to sell me a working carb or rebuild the one I have? I'm not asking for an ER carb. They seem hard to find. I just thought I'd try and offer some business to somebody on the site.

By the way, thanks for all the help you didn't know you gave me. Tons of info on this site!!

California is a big place.
If you lived near Palm Springs, I might be convinced to take a look at it.

There are a couple of other guys who are ahead of you...

Once you get the cars dialed-in (compression, leaks, bearings, alignment, brakes) swap in new rubber and glass, you've got something which should last for years!
