1973 CJ5 (Carburator & Fuel Lines)

Hi Folks new on here...i have a CJ5 year 1973 under restoration. I am looking for suggestions on

- Where and which Fuel Lines shall i buy (need replace the old ones...all I can find are fuel lines for a CJ5 1976 model or older......will those fit?)

- What Carburetor will be a good upgrade for this car/engine? 1973 258 4.2L ? i want to stay in the $ 200 ballpark price...any idea where is the best buy option online?

thanks for all help

Greetings and welcome. Nice 5 you got there!

For the carb, I just upgraded to the M2150. I paid near 3bills for it, but it was completely rebuilt and came with all the parts/adapters. You can get those for much cheaper if you're willing to do the rebuild yourself.
As to the fuel lines, I didn't replace the entire system, but did replace the metal tubes that run from pump to carb. I used this place for those -> http://inlinetube.com/Preformed%20Li...s/ocatalog.htm

The other carb many will suggest will be the Weber, which, fully remanufactured will run in the 3-5 ballpark. I figure you'll want to be going the DIY rebuild, and my understanding is that either Motorcraft or Weber are fairly standard rebuild with cheap kits found at local parts stores
