Motorcraft 2150

Hello everybody,
I just got an 83 CJ7 and I’m looking at the motorcraft 2150. It looks like The eBay guy that everyone used to get theirs from isn’t doing it anymore. All I can find is rebuilders and Chinese versions. Are these Chinese carbs good? I have a 2150 that needs rebuilt just hoping to buy one that has been professionally done/tested. Thanks in advance!

I'd find someone that can rebuild the one you have and forget the chinese junk.

I've always used his rebuild kits and parts.

I don't think he has carbs for sale but states that all parts are US made.

If you buy a Chicomm clone for say $80 plus shipping from China (saw one on ebay for this) , deduct the taxes and seller margin and how much do you think it was ex factory? $30?

The seller has not invested in R&D and QA and inwards goods testing in the same way that Ford or GM does. You are therefore taking a risk that it even works.

i bought a cheap Chicomm clone BBD a few years back, supposed to be a direct fit. There was no means of attaching the choke coil so no choke. I persevered and fitted it with no choke, it just about started but there was a whistling at idle as the butterfly plates did not meet the venturi walls exactly. So I rebuilt my original 40 year old BBD, it is missing a few bits of linkages etc but I managed to beat bits of the clone to fit, now it runs sweet.

I don't believe my experience is rare or unique.

So if you want an MC2100 I suggest you get reman / rebuilt original. or buy a scrapyard original and rebuild it yourself, the kits are real cheap.

The 2150 is slightly more complicated than the 2100, which is IMHO the simplest carb in the world.
I wouldn't be afraid to get a kit for your carb and do it yourself.
Watch some videos.
Take some pictures.
Ask for some help.
Get it done.

The Motorcraft carbs are dirt simple to rebuild. As long as your throttle shaft is good and not wobbling all over the place you can rebuild it in about an hour including cleaning. A gallon of Berryman's carb dip will be your friend.

So Iím in the same predicament, am still having trouble getting a recommendation on a reliable place to purchase a new (?), non-Chinese knockoff for a Motorcraft 2150. Mine is not rebuildable, shaft has way to much play and the flutter valves are very pitted. I can rebuild one fine, but need a good unit to start with and if I can buy one already done Iíd rather spend a few extra bucks and bolt it on and get back running again. Mikeís Crabs sell the whole carb but set up for V8 and if you break it open to jets then warranty if void, which isnít the end of the world butÖ

A Weber 38-DGES (K551-38) for your Jeep is $335.00. New, jetted for your engine, no wobbly shafts, no rebuilding, etc.

National Carburetors rebuild and return service.

They are a major rebuilder and will warranty the carb as long as you don't take it apart.

I went ahead and ordered one from Mikeís. It comes with .49 jets so I ordered the .47s and will trade them out. Unless it will run with the .49s?

49 will be too rich, 47's were good for me when I had a MC2150 on my 258.

I see that you already ordered.

Just a general FYI, these folks do a good job as well. Spoke to them about exactly what I wanted, got a great 2150.

Now ya tell me!🤨 😂 Looks like they ďremanufactureĒ, didnít see a purchase option looking quickly. Mine is pretty bad, lots of dings and dents, and the flutter valve shaft has so much play in it. Thanks though, will keep the info for further reference.
