Quick update: Put the HEI in this weekend and I couldn't be happier. After fiddling with the timing and such she seems to run very strong.

I have to adjust the carb again as I am getting a pretty strong unburnt gas smell, but that is minor and I will tackle that today.

Thanks to all who helped me along the way.

Moose, where did you get the adapter plate? My 2100 has the square back edge like your plate yet the summit adapter is curved. Where can one get that adapter you have? Thanks...

Questions:

On the ride to work this morning, throttle response was "sluggish". When I give her some gas, it seems to bog for just a half second or so, and then I get a surge and she rips. Is this a timing thing or an air/fuel mixture thing? I think I am a tad lean in my mixture right now... I made it that way on purpose as it seems to run well at this setting and it keeps the fumes bearable. Timing is about 10* BTDC. Idle is very strong, even when it is very cold.

Thoughts?

that sounds like a carb issue. I'd be willing to bet that it's the choke adjustment. Actually, mine does that every once in a while when it's cold and wet out. It got better after i adjusted the choke a bit, but it's still there. Usually i just let it warm up a little longer on those days.

Funny thing is, it happens after it is warmed up. I have a manual choke as well, so I can control that in cab.

RockWorm, change your view and it's only two pages.

Hey Moose..did you use the trans-kickdown lever on your 2150 or did you use the stock YJ mechanism with the throttle cable pulling downward? My YJ is auto but the carb I have, the 2100 is virtually perfect but without the kickdown lever. I don't really need it, do I?

I used the stock downward pulling linkage.

It can be seen here(kinda):

On my Weber I had a similar problem, changed the idle jet and smell and stumble went away.

My 2150 has the #47 jets in it already, I think....

Someone in another thread mentioned fuel pressure. Would that cause this problem?

I guess too much fuel pressure could cause it to load up/flood float bowl. When anyone installs a Weber they suggest a regulator set at 3-3.5psi, cheap enough to see if it's the problem.
