I258 Carb

All right, you guys have helped so much, I have another question.
Best Carb for a 258???
I want a weber, but not looking to spend that much money. I heard motorcraft makes good Carb's, but I rather have the opinion of the Jeep Guru's out here.

1984 CJ 7
I6 258
31's on 15' Wagon Wheels
12000 Warn Winch (recently ripped apart hauling my jeep out of a mud hole)

They both perform equally with regards to idle and road performance.
The Weber is new parts, the MC2100 is a junkyard grab so that's the price explanation.

You should also purchase an extra $100 worth of parts for the 2100s which include the intake adapter (mr gasket makes it), a motorcraft 2100/2150 rebuild kit (considering your carb sat in a junkyard for 10 years or more), and a new air filter assembly.

Our crew runs both... We can't recommend one over the other except that for those of us that weren't on a budget, the Weber worked out quicker, cleaner and we like new parts :-)

I used to own two CJ's...Perhaps a 3rd is in the future?
