Where to buy stock carburator

I have a 1981 cj-8. Four cylinder iron duke. I want to buy a new replacement carburetor. Any ideas on where to look? Stock would be preferred.

Are you actually looking for a brand new never been used carb? If not, most auto parts places can special order rebuilds if that's all your looking for, right around $400. I'd think you could find a good carb rebuilder to redo yours for less.

Check these guys out. They might can help. I got a NOS Carter BBD for my 258, bolted it on and with a few mixture adjustments I was on my way.

All Carb Guys

Call them and talk with them, they are very knowledgeable. Check out the "Obsolete" drop down menu on the left.

Good Luck
