And to think i was all bent out of shape about some stuck bushings today. Keep at it man, it will be worth it in the end!
I let a project die once upon a time and i still regret it to this day 10 yrs later.

oh it won't die... I'll die before this project does... but I've sort of thrown my hands up at the whole computer/TBI thing... so, today browsing through the local craigslist parts ads, found an ad for someone selling a cab & intake along with a bunch of other stuff (but the other stuff I didn't want/need) so I emailed to see if he'd sell just the carb/intake... he said ok $50.

I about fell over... I guess the guy didn't really realize what he had or he was REALLY strapped for cash. said he had a car with a rod knock so he was originally planning on rebuilding the motor, but then changed plans and scrapped the project, selling off whatever he could

so for just $50 total, I got an Edelbrock Performer manifold #2101 (about $170 new at Summit) AND an Edelbrock Performer 600 cfm carb #1405 (about $300 at Summit)

bargain shopping

a few other things I need, but compared to the carb & intake, they're small items... adjustable return type fuel pressure regulator (keeping the in-tank pump), an HEI distributor, and possibly throttle & kickdown brackets if I can't make my old ones usable.

yeah, I know - carb no good offroad, EFI better, etc, etc.... my Jeep is about 90% street (my main vehicle) and when I DO get off road, it's mostly logging roads, seasonal (limited maintenance) acces roads, etc to get to fishing spots or trailheads for when I go hiking.

a few various chemicals, some ingenuity (home-brew soda blaster) and a little elbow grease (and a shot of paint on the intake) - lookin like new

wish I could've gotten ALL my parts through Craigslist at such a bargain

sure thing... mine only cost me the price of the baking soda (cheap store brand in a huge box) as I already had the blow gun and some spare vinyl hose laying around

definitely do it outside, and best if there's a slight breeze... stand with the wind at your back or you'll end up covered in white powder.... goggles are useless, but at least wear a dust mask. doesn't feel too good (and tastes even worse) breathing it in.

got all the TBI stuff removed and got the new (to me) intake all torqued down. carb is currently just finger tight because I need to get a different cable bracket (old one bolted right on, but it's too far away and slightly off to the right) and the linkage corrector for the TV cable.
waiting for funds to get the HEI distributor, bypass (return) style fuel regulator and a few smaller incidentals.

I'll probably be putting the old TBI stuff up in classifieds and/or craigslist so someone with more patience, time & knowledge can mess with it

ok, what should have realistically been a 10-day (or less) swap has become a 2 month process LOL
fingers crossed this will be the weekend I get to drive it home.

this past week I picked up the rest of the parts I need (I think) to finish the conversion to computer-free jeeping.... got my HEI distributor from Summit, the new throttle/TV cable bracket, the throttle arm geometry bracket, bypass/return fuel regulator and a bunch of smaller misc parts.
got to dad's late this afternoon and after dinner spent a couple hours out in the garage getting started on the fuel plumbing. need to make a quick run to the hardware for a couple elbows and barb fittings I forgot, but then I'll be getting ready to fly (I hope)
