CJ7 Weber vs. Holley

I have an 82 cj 7 (258) running offenhauser intake with holley 390 cfm. I'v always had problems with the holley. Has anyone run the weber carb on the offenhauser dual port 4 barrel intake? Is it possible to adapt the weber to the 4 barrel intake?

What sort of problems have you been having with the holley. I have the 390 on the offy intake, and it has taken me a lot of tinkering to get it just about right. Jeephammer has a great write up about getting holley carbs set up, and making non truck avenger models almost as good as the TA's. I had toyed with the idea of going to a Weber but I already have the Holley and with a little time and patience you can get it working pretty well. Let me know what is going on and I can try to help.

CJ 7 Weber vs. Hollwy

Thanks for the two replies.
I finally got the jeep to run, but it was knocking and running terrible. I pulled the valve cover to find 3 bent rods??? I am going to replace rods and see what happens. I would imagine this was due to sticky valves. We'll see?
