Sorry, not enough cafeen..

It's probably used to keep the gas from sloshing around a lot. and leep it around the floats when at an angle. If all you ever do is drive flat roads you might not miss it.

I probably wont be able to keep it on flat roads I cant imagine that the baffle would be able to do a whole lot but none the less, if its within reason I would like to try and get one. Any ideas where I could get one? I cant imagine that its a part Autozone would have, or even be able to order it.

On another note is there any reason that it wouldn't be in there besides a PO forgetting to put it back in during a rebuild? Even then I would think it would be a hard piece to forget, even if the rebuild was finished the piece isnt small or something he must have noticed it was left over. Just doesn't make sense to me unless he was just extremely lazy.

Everyone I opened up had one in it.

As you say, hard to overlook. But maybe couldn't figure out were it went...\

However, I just went through 3 sites that sell BBD Parts and it lasn't listed in any of them....

https://buy.walkerproducts.com/carbu...omponents.html

http://www.carburetion.com/Carter2.htm

http://www.carburetor-parts.com/Cart...c_151-2-0.html

Mybe you can call one of them and see if they can find it for you.

Ya I figured it would be a hard part to find, I did some searching and found this http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f8/mi...r-bbd-1258346/

Im confused as to why there would not be a baffle in these carbs...

There are only used parts available that I'm aware of. However saying that the company that is now producing the clone BBD (it has the bright white bowl vent instead of off yellow) may have parts available also. I wanted to look into this and never did........

Hey does anyone know about using Teflon tape with high temps on engines? I was thinking about using it to help seal the threads on my needle and seat, also when I get my CTO valve i was wondering if I should some Teflon on that when i screw it into the intake manifold. But I'm concerned that it will melt or something?

NO TAPE!
Copper anti-seize from NAPA.
Use NUT'N on the carb! You should have a gasket for the needle and seat.

That is not a thread sealer.

Most things you get will already have thread sealer painted on when you get it. Just spray brake clean on the female threads.

It does work as a thread sealer(to a small point)and makes sure you can take'em apart, down the road.
A/size also maintains electrical contact that t'tape does NOT. Plummers 'putty' also causes ele. contact issues.

Its a tapered thread. It will tighten up as it gets deeper.

How far in is it? How many threads showing?

Was there a orange or red powder on the threads?

IIRC, it's either a 1/8" or 1/4" pipe thread, 'rite'?
You may need to get a pipe thread tap, and chase the threads on the Jeep. BTDT many times......
