Here is a brand spankin' new Carter for 170 bucks.

That way it will keep it emissions compliant and the high altitude wire will still work. I liked the Carter in my mid 80's CJ7.
Personally I agree, but many older YJ owners opt for the MC2100 because it is easy to set up, etc.


Do you know what was good about the good old days? I wasn't good, And I wasn't old!

Senators and Congressman should wear uniforms like NASCAR drivers so we could identify their corporate sponsors....

When I swapped my 90 yj that was stock over to a Weber 38 with a tuned timing curve it made a night and day difference. I can run 75+ now on 31s & 3.07s, or accelerate uphill in 5th.

Hey, so I'm trying to get started again but it isn't getting any spark. What do you guys think it could be? I'm leaning torwards the ignition coil, so I'll test that out when I get home. Just wanted to see if anyone else had some good suggestions.

Icms are notorious for going bad in these. That's what I'd bet.

Adopt your pets. Don't shop for them.

Got the ICM out only to find that none of the Auto Zones near me can test it. Great. I'll just try to find some parts at a junk yard tomorrow since they're closed on sundays. I'll post a few pics if anyone needs to know where/how it's removed.


Here's the ICM:


Mine was under the washer reservoir (2 or 3 screws):





3 screws under the wheel well to take off the ICM:

Nice Jeep.
Looks real familiar.
Bought my Dad's Jeep from my Mom after he passed away a couple years ago.
He bought it brand new in 1991 and was his baby!!
Couldn't let anybody else have it and abuse it.
Have just started fixing some things on it.

Gas tank is being drop next week to put in new fuel sending unit. New straps and tank protector will be installed.
Plan to upgrade seats. Have some rust spots to fix but she runs like a top and only has 122,000 original miles on her.

Ordered my ICM a few days ago, so it should arrive within a few days. Hopefully that's the problem so I can get on to the body work!
