Searching for Edelbrock...

Hey ... Happy new year and all that bollocks.

CJ7 1984, RHD, 258, Power brakes and steer.

I have the stock BBD carb on it at the moment and it runs like a dead dog. I have a 600 cfm edelbrock 4bbl carb in the box and am searching for the inlet manifold for this kit. I know - i know... get them together... but i didn't... and now im paying for it... Edelbrock claim they dont do inlets GREAT ! And sent me to crane cams - who don't reply to email. I believe I have found the fit with Clifford who inform me that their inlet and spacer will go just fine... HOWEVER, once i get it im dead if they don't fit right when i take em apart... HOW can i check this and who with ? Is there someone else out there that has an edelbrock carb 600cfm and has mated it to a 258 ? Also what other parts do i need - Bob at 4WD hardware informs me that the offenhauser would fit but the universal linkage I need would not fit with my power brakes... so the inlet is out altogether then, is there no end to this ?

Help !!

Thanks
Guy - London UK.

Too much ? errrr whats the worst that could happen ? HONEST ! I have no idea !

I plan to chuck in the appropriate cam - be that whatever the majority of you suggests !

Edelbrock do however do cams as do Crane Cams.

Havent seen ya for a while guy. I would stay away from a 600 CFM, that is way too much for a 258. Also It would not work with the power brakes. Your best bet would be to get a weber. I just bought one used for $150. Or you could convert to FI, but then you will have to worry about messing yourself. I knew a guy who had a 600CFM with a offenhauser intake, he said it was muggy until 3 or 4 thousand RPM when the carb could finally open up. Or you can go to http://www.off-road.com/jeep/tech/engine/carter.html and fix your carter, and have it running good again.

Hey Darko,

I will have huge pleasure in smashing the Carter with a large sldge hammer so no other poor sod becomes victim of its spell.

About the Edelbrock... uh oh... i own it now. Muggy ? Whats that ? Same as chuggy ? gluggy ? I'm gona need it to be PERFECT - idle as low as possible - and go like stink at 5000 when i need to fly up vertical cliffs of mud or back over Suzukis in my way.

I know this may sound STUPID but I really don't want to have to sell it or return it [if i can], is there a way to limit it ?

Other than that - its going on - with the Clifford till i hear otherwise from forums and we'll see what I get. I Hope to be able to swap in a 360-454 ?? in about 6-12 months £ prevailing.

Cheers
Guy

Guy, its me your buddy Rip
I run a clifford and a 500 CFM 2 barrel holley, I have my float level set low. and it works awesome! I also went to a junk yard and found a neat air cleaner adapter off a propane powered motor home motor. It mounts the same as a regular air cleaner but extends forward at an angle so you can mount a larger air cleaner on it. I will send you a Picture. I dont know how to put one on here or link it. but I have your email so I will send you a picture. The 4 barrel is a bit much. Plus on the straight up and straight down stuff the back 2 barrels tend to puke fuel causing a flood out....Rip
