I replaced the original head, intake and exhaust on my '74 with '87 YJ parts. The Rochester 2 barrel is the same size opening as the adaptor for the 2100 but still had to make my own adaptor plate and ported it to match the intake with the Rochester. The 2100 plate bolt hole overlapped the carb bolt holes.

There are two sizes. One is 298CFM, the other I believe is 400. The larger is common on V8's while the smaller on V6's. My 225 came from the factory with the smaller version and it worked extremely well offroad.

Are you running the 1bbl or 2bbl intake manifold? My all-around favorite would have to be a Holley 2300 for simplicity, downright reliability, and easy tunability. I run the progressive Weber 34/34 on my CJ and it gets much better fuel economy than any other 2bbl, and still has some umph. IMO, the Holley is simpler and easier to tune than the Weber. The Weber 32/36, and Holley 5200 (basically a Weber 32/36 clone manufactured by Holley) are also both great carburetors and are very fuel efficient, being progressive 2bbls.

My CJ sees a lot of on-road driving, so fuel economy is pretty important to me. That's why I run a progressive Weber on there. If I was more into tuning it and getting the most performance I'd have a Holley 2300 on there.

The smaller version is also the 2 5/8" neck and one I'm using has the 3 1/16" neck.

^^ i prefer an over/under double barrel^^

anyhow, i was out @ the junkyard over the weekend and spotted an '81 Mustang with the 4 banger. I have some pics for you all to ponder over and tell me what you think. I really like the fact that it has a mechanical secondary and not vacuum. There is not much I know about these carbs, just that they were supposably weber carbs, marketed as holley, and I know nothing more. No idea how to id these weber carbs. I could not find an id tag on it anywhere, but I did not grab it or mess around too much with it as I was already on my way out with another cast iron anchor (this time a two barrel and from a fsj.) so, if anyone can look @ the pics and say yea, or can tell me how to better narrow down the model of the carb. unfortunately these are the only two pics I have and they were also taken with a smell fone. (wife won't let me take the dig. cam to the junkyard)

Best pass on that 6520 I'd say. Missing the Power Valve Control Valve and Diaphragm. Lower right corner in first photo, and cause it has had a Power Valve Control Valve. It's a feedback carb looking for O2 sensor input. Look further for a 5200. It will not have that missing thing nor the E.A.V. Solenoid directly across the fuel horn on cover.

This photo, compliments of another JF user is what to seek. The Holley5200
