That's awesome Scott. Thanks!!!
Matt, my CJ 5 started with a Quadrajet, ran it for 2 years. Not being one to ask questions , I bought a 470 TA Holley to try. This is when I found out the Q-jet was better off road. I left the Holley on the 5.
Enter the 360 in the Quadratrac CJ 7, I put the Q-jet on it.
I seem to be using the 7 more than the 5 so it worked out good.
After Moab last year I had some fuel issues related to the damn ethanol crap. This was on the 5 with the Holley.
So now it's time for our big trip, I just happened to have another Q-jet on the CJ to YJ. I didn't want to remove the Jet from that engine, I also didnt want to jack with the Holley, cause I knew the Jet was better. So I put the Jet ( cj to yj) on the 5.
That's where I'm at today.
If you read the link on the Q-jet, you know the only draw back to the Jet is the small fuel bowl. For me this wasn't a problem on all the trails I go on, except for the sand dunes I went on for the first time last year.
This is why I'm picking up the Holley 670 TA , for the dunes at the end of September, for the Q-trac 360 . When I get back the Jet is going back on the 7 Q-trac. ( I will be taking the Jet with me, so I can try it after the mods in the link.
I just ran out of time in getting ready for this trip. I hope to do the mod to the large air valve ( the one on the top back) I have a spare Jet with me. I'm also going to drill the small vacuum pod that's on the rear. I have the .012" bit. Actually it's .0134" , its the smallest one I could find . This bit is the smallest bit I have ever seen, not a typo, it's .0134" . I hope my pin vise is small enough to hold it.
Also the 670 will be going on the J truck at a later date. My hope is to take the truck to Moab next year. Haha if I get it finished.
I proof read this twice. I hope you can make sense from it.
