Have recently acquired an 88 swift in ok condition except for a gummed up carb.
Whats the simplest way out to get this cutie back on the road?
Thanks in advance.

It will depend on your profile.
If you live in Nebraska vs. the land down under, you will find different responses.
I suggest you look at what Matt Dodd has done.
Search his threads.

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!

Ever thought of just stripping it & cleaning it? It's not that difficult.

Back around '97~'98 - I picked up the '93 that I have - 42 miles on the clock, never registered, sat in a dealer's warehouse after the dealership closed.

To get it running I had to drop the tank, dump the stale fuel, free a stuck fuel pump and clean a gummed up carburetor - I did have the occasional problem with the primary main jet clogging for the first six months or so I owned the car, but it's served me well for 10 years since.

I am in South Carolina.
I gave serious thought to a rebuild but am a bit dismayed with the complexuty of the OEM unit. Perhaps that would be the best.
