Well as we have difference of opinions on the carb thing, I did do the TFI upgrade which was extremely nice.
In my opinion, I would not put a Carter on any vehicle ever again. As a matter of fact, I am worried that just having the old Carter in my garage is going to affect the way my Jeep runs, since it is so close, I figure the Carter will f#@k up my Jeep through Osmosis. Wouldn't be surprised.
I have never heard anyone complain about a Weber (except maybe price), until now. You know they sell a kit to use your original air filter and filter housing on a Weber K-551, maybe that will solve your filter issue.
I personally, like the filter set-up.
Anyhow, I think the bottom line we have all come to is that you need to focuse on your carb.
I would do the TFI upgrade also, it can not hurt in the long run, and you will see a noticeable difference.
Good Luck.

The other small factor is that you are in Jeep-land - while I have the misfortune of living in injected-large shopping trundler land... as no one seems to be able to do a decent job of tuning here, no one knows sheet about jeeps - i mean REALLY ... and no one can give any solid advice.

I have spent thousands of 's on experiencing peoples lack of knowledge but great ability to bull**** their way to get you to pay them to work on your jeep.

I put the carb problem I currently have down to a Weber as thats what I have - and I have had everything else replaced. I know I need a Weber guru to tune it properly ... and I have yet to find one of those that lives over here - but if any of you dudes want to visit the UK to do some touristing... and want to tune a CJ7 while your here... be my guest... I even have a great friend who rents camper vans and would be happy to help you out.

kungfu ?

Hey Guy,
Buy that Weber Carb book from 4wd....I did, and it is pretty helpful. Although I haven't needed to make any major adjustments, it is pretty informative from what I saw glancing through it. I got it for when I need it....ya know?

Thats the one...

When it came to mounting the coil [a very square shaped item] I got a lump of alloy I bar and cut it in half - so i had 2 the same length ... then driled holes in each end of them and they fit nicely round the coil so i could relocate it anywhere dry and out of the way. Still hanging on as I by chance checked over everything under the bonnet yesterday. But the coil is rustin'... ah well only on th' surface.

I bought a TFI Coil bracket from the Ford Dealership. I told them I wanted it for an 87 Mustang. Then I mounted it on the fender well. I paid like $15 for the thing, and it fits perfects, just had to bend one piece on the braket. Looks good. (Oh yeah, the reason I used it from an '87-'89 Mustang is because they were mounted on the Fenderwell in the stock mustang for those years.
Good luck.
