When it comes time to strip the paint all you have to do is park next to those speakers and blast it off


They say money can't buy happiness but it can buy Jeep parts...and Jeep parts make me really Happy.

Putting some more miles on the Jeep today, tying to get a feel for it. Still can't find anything wrong with it mechanically! Got the motor all cleaned up today too. For being 30 years old, the engine compartment is looking pretty nice. The question now is, to nutter, or not to nutter? What are the advantages?

I once rebuilt the same motor and carb in an '84 Eagle, it was always a pain though - wish I'd known about the nutter bypass then. I haven't done the nutter though so I can't help you there.

Did some research today about doing the nutter bypass, and found a good thread by Jeephammer, and it referenced that the directions were for the Carter BBD carb. I'm still new to stock carbs, and don't know the difference between them, so can someone tell me what carb I have from the pics below? From what I've found, I'm thinking it is a Carter, just need a confirmation.

I'm no expert on carbs either (actually I know next to nothing), but it sure looks like a BBD to me.

Glad to see you logging some miles and enjoying the Jeep.

I'm just glad you found it for me! Better not hit me with a finders fee!

Just trying to pay you back for hooking me up with the front axle (for free ) when I blew mine apart.

Yes, it looks like one of the newer years BBD's to me. My 82 never had that "device" on the backside of it with the wires / plug. That's some 'puter chit!

Yep, I've narrowed it down to the Carter BBD with computer feedback. It is running great, and I plan on doing the team rush upgrade as well. I'd really love to get rid of all those emissions related hoses and wires, and the ECU to clean up the engine bay and make it alot simpler to work on. I do have another carb sitting up on the shelf that came on my original Jeep, not sure what it is, but it was on the AMC360 when I bought it. It kind of looks like the pre 1983 Carter 2bbl. But then again, some day I probably will drop another 360 in this rig, so I may just leave it alone for now. I miss my old 360, and its only been gone 10 days!

On another note, I've been shopping around for some 18 gauge sheet metal to fix the right side wheel well opening, and striking out. Tractor Supply has 1 2x2 sheet for $39.99 which isn't big enough to make it in one piece. Lowes only has smaller pieces, so I called the local steel supply shop which could get 18 gauge cold rolled sheet, however, they laughed at me when I said I needed a 24x36 inch piece, and said they couldn't help me! So I guess it's back to Tractor Supply to get 3 12x24 inch pieces, angle cut the ends to 22.5*, and weld them together to form a rough arch, then trace out my wheel opening on it.

That thing on the back is the "stepper motor".

I got all my sheet and steel, or most of it at an Amish fabrication shop. It's actually called Peight's Welding but they stock all kinds of steel and they fabricate steel stuff as well. You couldn't beat their prices. I'm sure you've got some Amish communities nearby. Call some welding shops and ask around. I did get a few small pieces from Lowe's and T.Supply but they only carry 16, 22, & 26 ga. in various sizes and most of my repairs were with 18 or 20ga.

We got plenty of Amish around here, but I've never seen one with a welding shop. Probably would be funny though to see their horse running in a giant hamster wheel making the electricity to power the welders!

I think it's probably more of a Mennonite owning it and Amish working there. But then anymore theres a lot of what we call "briefcase amish" around too. Old school Amish are getting fewer and fewer. But call around to the welding shops even if they're "english" shops. Some carry stock on hand.

Yeah, the Amish around here are barely Amish anymore. There's an Amish sawmill just down the road from me that I get lumber at, but you could barely tell its Amish. They have brand new front end loaders, log trucks, cell phones, and they even have a big speed boat in the barn!
