Help me identify my engine/carb.....
Ok, I have a 1980 CJ-7 with what is supposed to be a 258 with 2-barrel carb (according to the VIN), and TF 999 Automatic.
I was hunting around in the books, comparing pictures, and found that I have a Carter YF 1-barrel carb and intake manifold installed (and running well, BTW).
So, now I'm wondering if this is the original motor or has one be transplanted by a previous owner. I can't find any reference to the Carter YF being used on a 258, only the 232.
The code stamped on the engine block is 308C10, so I assume the "C" is the same "C" in the VIN, meaning it is a 258 with a 2-barrel.
I'm thinking someone swapped out a 1-barrel manifold and the Carter YF, perhaps as a cheap fix for a crappy BBD. Also, stamped on the manifold is the number "8.7.78".
Is this a carb/manifold off a '78 I-6? Enquiring minds want to know...
