Since I like originality, and I didn't like the silver color of the 7109S, I sent it off to Hatch Carburetion LLC, to have a concourse restoration done. I got a call from him this morning; the person who had "rebuilt" the carb had used a different metering rod; the total metering was way off, so Hatch did the math and ordered a smaller jet to get the total metering back to what it should be, so he should get that new jet by the end of the week.

He did mock it up and took pictures for me. I am blown away by the detail that he put into this carburetor. It looks beautiful.

Thanks. I'm excited to get it back. Hatch told me that the float was way off and junk, so he changed out the crap Nitrophyl for a new brass type.

I know. I had to buy a Motorcraft YF, in order to get the correct dashpot bracket, because mine was missing. Check out what the bracket looked like, before Hatch worked his magic.

Wow. Talk about perfection... That's really something. those are the kinds of things on a true restoration you can spend hours staring at. Good job.

That's what I'm afraid of, LOL! I might get it back and just stare at it! It'll almost be too pretty to put on that poor, old, ugly engine.

Hatch called me today to let me know that the YF is done. I'm out of town right now, until Saturday, so he sent me a video of the carb on his Chevy that has a 235cid engine. No adjustments, just slapped it on and fired it up.

Here's the video.

I think so too. It sounds so smooth and crisp and immediately responsive.

Thanks, Bill.

THIS, gentlemen, is the difference between some POS monstrosity, slapped together with parts from a bunch of different carburetors by some hack shop, and a place that takes pride in its work.

Did it cost more? Yeah, $130 more than what I paid for the other "carburetor". Am I getting a "Lifetime Warranty"? Nope, and I most-likely won't need one, just simple maintenance and the occasional rebuild, per the FSM.

Bottom line, you get what you pay for.

Scott, it's even more amazing in person. I got it in the mail yesterday and slapped it on......the words "raped ape" come to mind.

The CJ has NEVER run this well. Acceleration is instantaneous and out of this world. I really couldn't have asked for a better job.

If you guys are interested, Jerome Hatch is the guy's name....he goes by Hatch. He's in Oklahoma and his number is 918-557-6448.

So I guess this guy comes over and his teenage daughter is with him. He checks it out, the seller gives him a bunch of info on the jeep, and everything looked good. So the guy then says to his daughter "So, what do you think? You want this one?". Right there the seller chimes in and asks "This is for her?" The guy says "Yeah, she just turned 16 and this is her present.". The seller then says "Then I'm sorry there is no way I'm selling you this thing. The SECOND you don't respect this vehicle it will 100% guaranteed kill you." And that was that. And I wound up driving it the 2.5 hours home (felt more like 10) and was white-knuckle terrified the whole time. So I'm hoping that by changing to a 4" susp lift she'll steer a bit better.
I had a similar experience. At one point I decided to sell my YJ due to health reasons. One day my wife tells me she found someone who was very interested in buying it. Turns out it was her sister who wanted to buy it for her daughter (niece) as a first vehicle.

I said first, NO! and second NO! Which of course triggered an immediate argument about how unreasonable I was being. In hindsight, considering that her daughter wrecked the Honda Accord they bought her, I'm sure I saved her life.
