rebuilding a carburator

i was wondering how much it will cost me and how difficult it is to do this? it is a 84 cj with the 2.5 engine. can you buy aftermarket carbs very cheap?

I did mine this summer, I had a 85 with the 2.5, and it was a piece of cake, you might want to invite a friend over to help, two people are better than one when remembering where all those pieces go

Rebuilding my carb was the begging of all this for me. It was the first thing I worked on. I've learned a lot since then.

You need a Chiltons or Haynes manual for your jeep (if you dont already have one). A rebuid kit should be like $12.
Make sure you clean out your Idle tubes very well.

If you can put together legos you can rebuild your carborator no problem.

I had an 84 also, did it when I was 17, and it worked out great.

Good luck
