Okay, I've been blessed with the last year of stone-age technology (1986). No ECM, no "brain," no nothing EXCEPT little solenoids in the carb that control themselves (or so it's been roughly explained). I'm having enough minor carb problems that I'm conisdering replacing the carb. Problem is everyone trys to sell me a $500 carb with solenoids, etc. If my rig has no ECM, couldn't I put an old-fashioned carb with no electronics (except the choke) on it in place of the stock Q-Jet? There's no brain to link the carb and EPA stuff like the EGR (which is currently plugged off due to failure). Do I HAVE to put another super-expensive electronic carb in? Thanks for any input!
