I need a new carb, any advice on brand/model

Hello everyone. I have a 1978 CJ-7 with the ole standard 304. I have what I believe to be a factory correct Motorcraft carburetor that is shot. Can anyone give me some advice on what make/model of carburetor to replace it with?

I do not need anything extremely high performance or anything like that. I just a proven carb that will make her run, idle, accelerate properly, etc. I use my jeep mainly for street driving and cruising in warm weather, but I do occasionally take her off roading in mud, and anytime we get enough snow here in SC.

If anyone has had success with any new carburetor for the type of driving I mentioned, any suggestions or advice will be greatly appreciated. Yall drive safe and have a good one.

What's wrong with your Motorcraft? They are easy to rebuild and kits are in the $20 range I think. It's a good carb die your use when working and adjusted properly.

You can get reman'd Motorcrafs too. I got one from Summit racing for my 360 for under $200 about 6 or 7 years ago. It was reman'd by Holley. Holley also makes a version of this carb, I think it's the Holley 2300

The only two carbs that will fit the intake will be the original Motorcraft and a 2bbl Holley.
I agree with jp360. The Motorcraft is dirt simple and performs very well.
