I am sick of this Carter Carb and all the vacuum lines, so I am considering replacing the Carb. There is a guy on Ebay that sells a kit with MC carb supposedly set up to your needs. Has anyone bought one of these carbs from this guy? If so, what is your opinion? Also what is the consensus on the MC or the Webber?
I have the MC....love it. I've read weber's can be finicky to get set up but I have no first hand experience with them.
Plenty of people have bought from the ebay guy. Most appear satisfied, some not.
Myself, I can't justify spending hundreds of dollars on something I can (and did) do on my own for $70. But for someone who doesn't have either the time or knowledge the ebay set up is a good option.

The advertised position for a topless, dirty jeep girl has been filled......by my wife. Thanks to all that applied.
<------------and yes, that is her. :-D
Got the 2150 from gronk ebay guy. Instructions are pretty long and not as helpful as you could wish but all you basically need from his instructions is where the vac lines go. Take carter out put motorcraft in with adapter.. pretty simple
I have a carter BBD and love it. Worth every penny I spent on it.
Oh yea. I forgot I only spent 20 on a rebuild kit, 30 dollars on the tool and parts to put new throttle shaft bushings in the base plate and 20 dollars for a can of carb dip. And that same tool put bushings in other members base plates too.
But the best is Grammy telling me it drives like its brand new.
Edit. A 20 dollar pin vise from MSC and a .037 drill bit to drill out the emulsion tubes.
My Bbd has plenty of power/pickup, idles so smooth I have to glance at the oil pressure gauge to make sure it did not die while waiting at a stop light.

That same carter BBD was on many v8 Chrysler 318's. the only difference was a larger Venturi cluster. And may be a different needle profile. Which would probable be pretty nice match for a 258 with headers and a aftermarket intake.
i went with the MC2100 and couldnt be happier! the jeep runs great now, no more rough idle or dying, and it only cost me around 60 cant beat that, the motorcraft 2100 and 2150 were widely used in fords and are super easy to find dirt cheap, just go down to your local junk yard and look around
