Adapter Plate

I realize this is an old thread, but I found it using the search. I offer this information in case someone else stumbles across it the same way I did.

One of the posts asks about an adapter plate. I believe this is the one you need to use if you are using a junkyard carb. It is the Trans-Dapt p/n 2086.

I helped another jeeper install a 2100 on his Jeep and the junkyard just happened to have this adapter laying around,.... at least the adapter we used was in a Summit box with this part number, so I can't be 100% positive that the adapter in the box was actually the one that was marked on the box.

Do NOT buy your carburetor from Mr. EBAY!! I recently bought one and the top air horn was bent! Not a scratch on it either which means it was like that when it was shipped. And if you try to get in touch with him-FORGET IT!! No communication whatsoever. Guys, do yourself a favor and buy the Weber 32/36 for your 258. I tried the Weber kit after dealing with Mr. Error on EBAY, and it was so easy to install! I didn't even have to adjust the carb after installation. My Jeep now idles like glass, and has great acceleration. The motorcraft has nothing on the Weber, try it and see!!

I bought my MC2150 from the ebay guy. Including removal of the old carb, the entire project took about 4 hours, and I'm rather mechanically reclined under the hood. Carb runs GREAT! Everything went together as described and it's a HUGE improvement over the Carter POS.

^^^Same with me. My MC2150 arrived quickly, and in good condition. It was easy to install and my Jeep runs great. I did have to communicate a few times with the guy and, while his responses were not instantaneous, I always got a response. ,

Beware of the e-bay guy with the mc2100

Had bad experiences with this Ebay guy. I call him Mr. "Error". Bought a damaged carburetor from him, sent it back, and the guy denies my refund!! What a low-life. Getting it worked out through Ebay though. Beware of this guy. Buy a Weber instead, you will not regret it!

I bought one of his brand new 2150's, piece of crap not even a motorcraft, its a cheap third world knock off and my yj ran like crap.I had to contact ebay to get my money back,ended up bushing the body of my old one (that I paid $30.00 for) and put a new throtle shaft in,my jeep has never run better. If you people want a motorcraft and don't want to get one from a bone yard or can't find one,contact summit racing the tech dept can give you the phone# to holley thats who remans theyre motorcraft carbs, tell the guys at holley what you want for a carb,they will give you a part# to give to summit. You will pay less than what the ebay guy charges and the carb will be built right. The ebay guy gives himself a pretty big write up, personaly I dont think he knows what he's doing

I bought one from him couple years ago and it's been perfect. Bolted it on, hit the starter and she popped right off and ran like a top. One of the best mods for the 258.

I wondered why the baseball kept getting bigger and bigger....then it hit me!

The ebay guy openly admits that his early products were a little rough and that he's been improving as he goes along, so IMHO, rating him on something he did 5 years ago is not fair. He also states that adjustments will need to be made after installation to fine tune the carb to your engine. It's not just a "drop and go" upgrade. After I did mine, I took it to my mechanic buddy who went through it, verified the installation was clean, then fine tune adjusted it. It was running "OK" when I brought it to my buddy, but after 15 minutes of experienced hands under the hood, it ran WAY better.
