    I'm putting an 86 22R into a 83 that had an original 22R. The engine needs a new carburetor so I'm planning on putting a Weber one on there. With that being said, what parts do I need to make this conversion? Since the 86 has the vacuum advance, how do I accommodate that? And what header should I use to get rid of all the emission components? I live in Kentucky and don't have emission checks so I'd like to get rid of all the emission components.

    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    The engine turned out to be an early 22R; possibly out of the year that I'm putting it into.

    I've got everything back from the machine and all my parts in from 22RE Performance.com Everything has been powder coated and just needs to be assembled. IMG_20160517_211159[1].jpg IMG_20160329_173031[1].jpg IMG_20160527_182226[1].jpg IMG_20160612_123018[1].jpg IMG_20160613_192458[1].jpg
