So I was wondering through the junk yard today, looking for a newer Jeep. I wanted to snag a round fuel filler, to convert mine to the side, this goes along with the tail lights I want to install. That was a bust, they only had one Jeep that new, and someone already got it all. On my way out I noticed a Ford that just got brought in. Popped the hood and there sat this:



It certainly didn't look like much, there was actually a pretty good rats nest between the carb and firewall. I checked it, 1.08, and the throttle shaft moved smooth so I pulled it. This is the first 2100 that I've found, and it hasn't been sitting very long. The bowl was still filled with fuel.



I haven't popped the top off yet, but judging by the throttle plates and shaft, it looks immaculate. This might be the new carb that goes on my own Jeep, just because of how immaculate it appears. There was another truck sitting next to it that had a 1.02. I didn't pull that one, not sure if it has any real value to it.

I've been working on cleaning up the carbs that I have. Some of the throttle shafts are frozen in place, so I started looking for solutions. I stumbled on a product called Evapo-Rust on the internet, later figured out that they carried it at AutoZone. For $10 you get 32oz of the stuff. I was skeptical, didn't think it was going to do jack, so I didn't take any photos of the rustiest parts that I put in it. But I have got to tell you, this stuff actually works pretty well, especially on small delicate parts you don't want to be sandblasting or sanding. Some of the throttle plates I had were caked in rust, and after an overnight soak, had no rust left on them at all.

I took one of the throttle shafts, and placed it in the Evapo-Rust last night.

Before:


After:



The after photos were taken before the parts were rinsed off, which makes them look even better. In the last photo you can see where the arm wasn't submersed and is still caked in rust, compared to the part that was in the solution. The first few parts that I soaked had far more rust then this piece, and came out looking just as well.

I'm really surprised how well this product actually works. I expected it to do nothing, and it's actually turned out better then I could hope. The best part is that Evapo-Rust isn't acidic, or nasty at all. I only have 32oz of the stuff, so the only way I can submerge the carburetors is by putting it in a trash bag, that way I can draw it up around the carburetor. It's been in that bag for 2 days, and there's no sign that it has done any damage to the plastic.

This product may have limited abilities, since you need to soak the parts to get the most out of it. Even so, I've found it incredibly useful in smaller parts, like these carburetors. I've gone ahead and ordered a gallon of it, which is only $27, including shipping. It's definitely a product I will like having around, and I would recommend it to anyone doing work like this.

Nice find! Maybe it's a testament to the 2100's reliability.

Thanks for that update. I might have to try that product out too. I get tired of cleaning up rust all the time.

Welcome to the forum! I'm lucky that I'm able to do everything I have. There are a thousand circumstances that all worked out to my benefit on this one. Make sure you get a thread when you get started

I was supposed to have the tub back by now, but they must have fallen behind. It's looking like I should be getting it back Monday now.

I just won an auction on ebay for something I've mentioned on here before. I'll wait till I get them before I divulge any more info

I hope it has nothing to do with your new carburetor fetish!!

No! This is more pertaining to plans I have with my own Jeep. And I can happily say I've done well enough on the carburetor front so far to pay for my own parts and rebuild

I'm really hoping that I will be picking the tub up tomorrow afternoon. I'm also hoping that it's a dry day, for several reasons. I guess I'll be taking my first trip of the season down the river. Not too happy about it, but I couldn't leave my co-workers out to dry. I've got one of my carburetors soaking in some cleaner, and will be rebuilding getting it back together here shortly. Just need to find the right size jets.

You hope it is a dry day as opposed to rain? Man, if it rains on your freshly blasted tub it's gonna rust like a freight train! It would then be a perfect candidate for POR, so don't despair if it does get wet.

Nailed it. Been getting a decent bit of rain/snow/slush over the last week or so. Thanks for reminding me of POR, while I'd just assume it rust free at least there are options

After several set backs at work consuming my time, I finally had time to make the trip to pick up my tub today. Overall it looks great. There are a few spots of bondo that I wasn't expecting, but it is a 31 year old vehicle I guess.



The extent of the rust is only slightly worse then I expected. I knew it was rusted out where the roll bar sat, and where the dash support runs down the side of the tub.





The only rust I wasn't expecting was on the floor boards. They are pitted pretty good, but there is only a small area on the drivers side that is completely rusted through. Not sure if I want to replace them, or just patch the small holes. If I replace it, I would just assume find some replacement panels, and replace the whole shebang. Not sure, please feel free to give me your opinion.

Tomorrow I'm going to clean up some of the sealer they used on the seams, and get it in primer.

I've been thinking about colors since the day I bought this Jeep. I haven't been able to decide a color, little less round it down. If anything the list grows every week. Now I'm thinking about using Monstaliner on the exterior as well. I've been watching the Monstaliner thread, and a few people have done it. I think it looks pretty cool. To me the benefits are that it wouldn't scratch, bodywork doesn't need to be perfect, it's easier, perhaps a little cheaper, and certainly unique. The only downsides I can think of, it might be hard to keep clean, and once its on there, probably never going to get it off.

I'll sleep on it for a while

Not to bad, certainly repairable.
