The Hitachi DCH340 series carburetor is larger than the stock Datsun 1200 Hitachi DCH306 carburetor, yet runs smoother and makes more power than a Weber 32/36 Carburetor. They came as standard equipment on mid-to-late 1970s Datsun L-series engine, and Jet Kits for the A12 engine were available. It was first used on 1973 L16 and L18, and on all the L20Bs that followed.
