Hi Catherine, I feel for you in this frustrating dilemma. 

I don't have much knowledge in this particular model of Toyota to offer a definitive response, but I would probably seek out information on how many Toyota engines from that period use that same carburetor. This can widen your search other than for a van for instance.

Can I ask what is wrong with the one he has ? Is it not salvageable ?

If it is, and he can get a full rebuild kit for it, I would highly recommend it be fully disassembled and all parts cleaned using an ultrasonic cleaner. The are a few air and fuel passages within the body that can be partially blocked and these need to be thoroughly cleaned for optimum performance.

20lt per 100 kays is a lot of fuel, even for a 1.3 litre. Is he sure it's not leaking fuel ?
