It's a Carter BBD 2 bbl


Pre computer, no stepper motor.

Rebuild kit easy to get and cheap.

Check throttle shaft for play up and down.

Probably need to tell them year and engine size.

If there was a tag on it you should take that in but looking at the front of the carb there appears to be a sticker so that carb might be a replacement carb.

Still, give them the year and engine size also. They should be able to find one.

As far as I can tell going to napa you get 1 rebuild kit.

It covers all Carter BBD applications. Be it Jeep or mother mopar. Pick a early to mid 80's jeep with the 4.2l. Heck a jeep Wagoneer with the 4.2l will get you the same kit too. If your picking up what I'm putting down.

Pick a CJ year without the stepper say a 1981 or 1982 with the 258. All rebuild kits are in 1 box. Napa has a good kit it has the check balls and the throttle plate screws in the kit.

Not sure there is a napa around here but I will check it out. I will see what the other places carry.

What are steppers?

The steppers were a BBD carb with a little stepper motor moving two pins in and out controling the fuel mixture based on what the O2 sensor reading is.

I have a video or two on my YouTube channel of them in operation its "EugeneKingify"

Go into any auto parts store and ask for a carb rebuild kit for a '79 CJ with the 258 and 2barrel carb. Done.

And yes, that is the right kit. Notice that it says that it's for the BBD.
