Weber Carb.?

OK Guys I've got a 87 YJ and that stock @#%* carb is gone and I guess the Weber is the way to go from what Ive heard. Im not a hot rod so is a 32 DGEC big enough? I konw a bunch of you guys have done this so please give me a helping hand here please. I know the pressure regulator is a must for MPG.

yep, i put the 32/36 in mine back in January, and its been working great ever since, smoothed the idle and all other problems right away. Also I found carbs unlimited had the cheapest price on any Weber I had seen. As for the pressure reg I had mine set at suggested psi and it killed two fuel pumps, so I nixed the whole thing and i haven't noticed a difference. the 32/36 is for a little quicker acceleration and top speed due to its progressive set up and the 34/34 is more for low end torque but a lot of people have had very desirable results from both kits

also this link was very helpful to me

hope it helped

Crashing usually happens without prior notice. That is why it is usually referred to as an accident. Actually, it is quite sudden in most cases. - GeneralDisarray

i have a 34/34 interco weber and it works really well.i'm still tinkering with it but it's worth it.you have to use the pressure regulator because the carb operrates at 2.5 to 3.0 psi. if you run it higher it will run richer.search around alittle you'll get lots of info.

Look into the Motorcraft MC2100 swap.
It is Much cheaper just as reliable plenty of knowledge on the carb.

Hey I bought my jeep stock with the carter carb. The first thing I did was replace that piece of **** with the weber 32/36. Right out of the box there was a noticable difference. I never knew my jeep could sound the way it did that first run down the road with it. The set up with the open air filter is great. When you put the pedal down you can hear the second barrel open right up and the pick up was amazing. Best investment I've made on my jeep. I run a pressure regulator I have mine at 2 for regular driving, and 1.5 for offroad. Keep in mind each engine wears differently so play around with the regulator alittle bit to find whats best for you. I never would have guessed that my 87 had all that power waiting to be set free. I think you will be happy with weber.

I love my Weber 32/36. I have driven it with and without a regulator and can't tell any difference.
