need a breather for my mc2100

I have a 1986 cj-7 258I6 that had the Carter BBD p.o.s. carb. I upgraded to the mc2100 and also put a wrangler power brake setup on and now I need a breather that will fit.I would like to run something like a k and n with a cold air setup, but haven't found anything that will bolt right up. Any help would be appreciated.

If I remember, my MC2100 had an intake that was the same as a 4-bbl -- that is, about 5-1/8" in diaameter. So just about any air filter that would fit a 4-bbl will work. Measure from the center mounting stud on the carb to the nearest obstruction in order to figure out the diameter needed.

BTW, I'd recommend a regular dry air filter over a K&N. I removed the K&N from my 360 some time ago because it let in too much crap.

If you are going to wheel this I whould suggest a stock type breather hole facing backwards. Your fan will sling water and mud into your breather. Not enough to screw up the engine but you will clog the air filter up quickly.

Keep in mind a carburetor is a wet manifold system. Unlike fuel injection, fuel and air is mixed by venturi at the carb/throttle body. If you want a cold air system (or snorkel) you're going to need a plenum like this.

I got one off the shelf at Advance Auto. I got a little adaptor/riser kit for a few bucks more since mine wouldn't sit flush because of the fuel bowl.

It's little, maybe 6 or 7 inches across and chrome, but it works. I don't do mud much, so I don't worry about it.
