I just finished walking through this step by step with the instructions from weber on mine. When I finished I had the best running jeep engine I have had in my life. It felt really good to have done it myself.

Just don't skip steps in the instructions, I had my timing at 8 degrees BTDC and when it says to ignore you idle when adjusting best lean idle at first listen to the instructions. I let a "mechanic friend" try to tune it first his way to "save me some time". I should have just followed the directions from the beginning. I pulled up to his shop after I did it and went in to get him, he said fire it up and let's hear it ..... I said "It is running!"

Shoulda seen his face at how smooth it was with no hiccups or stutters.

Good Luck!

Well, every once in a while a good regulator has got to come off the assembly line. I'm glad you got ahold of it.

This begs the question, though: was it the regulator or paying careful attention to the initial tuning? I know where my money is

Either way, congrats on a happy Jeep


Edit: Halo, I may have misread your post and confused who did what. If you nailed it by doing what you did without a regulator, awesome work, dude!

I had a electric fuel pump with factory filter and needed the regulator. Once I installed carb did not run rich anymore. I have recently installed a FAST EZ EFI fuel injection and like it alot. + 20 HP feels like. Weber is almost as great too.
