Weber Carburator 32/36

For sale is a weber carburator off of a 1990 wrangler 4.2 and the carb doesn't leak or have any cracks or broken parts. But i have not had good luck with this carb. I have changed alot of parts on my jeep which has 178000 on it but still is kicking well and doesn't use oil and no oil in antifreeze or water in oil. What my jeep does is won't rev up over 2000 rpm's with out it wanting to shut off if you punch it or when you drive it you have to be very light foot with it or it stalls or backfires. I have tried the tuning methods from the instructions so i must either have to big of jets or to small but i don't know and don't care anymore. Im done messing with it. It came with the jeep so as far as i know it isn't a good setup for this jeep. I got a MC2100 carb that hasen't been installed yet but soon. Im practically giving away this carb. email me for a offer. This will go for cheap. They are only 300 new and this is used but i don't know how long. So plus shipping and what you offer it will go for. n2truckng@comcast.net Ken

Well prior to ordering my MC2100 I replaced my entire exhaust it was very old, and the response difference was amazing in comparison. Mine would just sputter if I tried to gas it, but I could feather it and it would be ok. I still can't full throttle, but I can actually use 5th gear now. I'm hoping when my carb comes in it will help it out as much as people say it does .

yeah i was told you would be able to full throttle it and have no problems with these carbs. The guy sending it to me has set it up just right (according to him) for the 4.2 amc motors. and granite he also said you would need to do the nutter bypass and i got the no emmission setup so all of my vacum lines are gone except for distributor, valve cover, 4wd, brake booster.

Like i said i don't know if it's a bad carb or if im not adjusting it right or if i have wrong size jets. Im just tired of dealing with it. Im not to good at adjusting carbs (i think) its my first carb vehicle so it's not a good start to my carb adjusting future. where you live? Send me a email and ill give you my number n2trucking@comcast.net

I think your problem is not the carb. I would bet its the distributor.

How? The only part of the distributor i haven't replaced was the actual distributor that is in the engine. I have done the cap wires and plugs and button. is it that pickup coil or whatever you call it undernieth the cap could be bad?

I would say with 178000 miles the internals on the distributor are worn out, they were not very good distributors to begin with. Or it could be timing chain. I have a 88 and i put a professionally built weber on it and it helped somewhat but nothing like i was expecting. I was told it is the distributor in mine. i have 168,400 miles on mine. Just my 2 cents.

ok yeah im still learning about these jeeps. Do you think the timing chain has jumped a tooth? or is it the parts that are undernieth the distributor cap? IF so do i have to replace that whole distributor or can those internals be replaced by it self? Also im still putting on a MC2100 but that weber is still for sale for cheap.

ANY OFFERS!!!!!!!!???
