87 yj 4.2l

My idle stop solenoid vacuum line broke so I am wondering if I buy a new carb will that do away with need of the idle stop solenoid? Or does somebody know where I can get one?

typically a carb does not come with one. Not sure where you can get them though.

Im assuming you still have the old original carb?

Im looking to replace mine one of these days to a Motorcraft version... but thats just me. Lots of recommendations out there to scrap that old carb and replace with a better version.

Yeah, I was thinking it would be Jeep specific, so dealer or salvage yard would be your best bet. You may be able to run with out it too; when I get home I will look at the set up closely and give you my opinion... for whatever its worth.

Thank you and I have toyed with taking it off sealing the vacuum line and run a manual control for it but I don't know if that would work or not

I have one of the solenoids if you want to buy it. I had to replace mine and had trouble finding them. I bought 4 when I did find them so I have backups if ever needed again.

Sure, I can post a pic tomorrow. It is still brand new in the box. It cost $25 but I will send it to you for $20.

Yea, it is impossible without the bump-stop solenoid. It actually keeps your car from stalling at stops

Do u think putting a manual choke on it would fix the problem?

The choke and bump stop really do not perform in unison. They have separate rolls.
