258 I6 Carburetor

So I've been getting an odd whine from my '84 CJ 7. I have determined it is the gasket between the intake manifold and the carb. Had the jeep running, sprayed carb cleaner at the gaskets and the engine sputterd. Problem is, I have no clue what carb is in it to buy replacement gaskets. Took some pictures, but I do not see any stampings ..... Also, that sticker over by the choke says "Weber - Serial#5772"

WhWeber. Should be a standard set of adapter plate gaskets.

This looks like what you need. http://www.thejeephut.com/weber-carb...b-by-omix-ada/

Fyi, the brand of the carb is printed clearly on the side in your last pic.

Thanks a bunch man. Great to see really helpful people here. Hopefully I can return the favor some day.

Also, that sticker in the last picture is just a sticker, I could not see any other stampings anywhere else. Is it likely this a legitimate Weber? I read online there should be a model number stamped in it somewhere along with the Weber sign.

Anyways, Thank you. Your help is really appreciated.

I had to do some searching to verify the model. Based on the throttle linkage I knew it wasn't a 32/36. Looks like a 34 dgec. Iirc it's not actually made by Weber. I found a writeup on it.

Carefull tightening down on the two adapter plates, and when you take it off to change the gaskets, check the plates for flatness on a piece of glass. They are very easy to overtighten which bends those plates. Weber (and the reproduction Weber) companies sell those plates seperate if yours are warped at all.

That is a reproduction Weber made by Solex (Weber North America). Some on here argue they aren't as good as the Webers with the name cast into the bowl. I have a Solex style 38 DGES and have found it to work really well. I think that is the article that explains it all, but basically Solex bought the rights to reproduce the carbs and sell them here in the states. They use a sticker to identify rather than cast the name into the part. I bet if both had stickers or cast names, you would never know the difference in performance or application.

On a side note.....
You MUST oil the air cleaner element or it won't stop any dirt (Personally, I would never run a gauze style filter in anything other than sand).
