Weber Carb vs. Stand. Carb 89 YJ

Is there an advantage to getting on the Weber Carb? What are they?

It depends. Is your Carter carb running badly?

With my stock carb, my Jeep would die out on the smallest incline...now, I can climb slightly larger inclines

Gas mileage stayed the same. Runs smoother now. Just about the only changes I've noticed. Oh yeah, and it idles where it is supposed to

Weber carb

Speaking of Webers, does anyone out there have one for sale, I am still working on this YJ for a poor student friend of my son's, the Carter has been rebuilt, still won't idle, idle tubes drilled out, still won't idle, so the next step is a weber.Anyone with one for sale.

Hey Jayshoguy, you forgot to mention that the smaller weber practically doubles your power. When I floor my jeep with the weber you can hear the second barrel open up and the engine just roars (snap your head back, not a V8 or anything but BIG improvement). My nuttered BBD on the wife's rig runs smooth, but you kinda just putt along........

Heh....yeah there is a bit of a boost when floored...it also drains my gas tank pretty damn quick, too. I tend to use the gas pedal less and less with gas prices as high as they are. Very rarely do I ever get the RPM's up over 2700.

The 32/36?

I can confirm these carbs are magnificent. I haven't ridden much in YJs with stock carbs, but mine and several others' with Webers are just a pleasure to drive. On gasoline (I run LPG in my YJ), it roars when you open up the secondary barrel, and the thing REALLY pulls.
