Question carburation 4.2 /6

Recently have done extensive work to an 89 YJ that had been sitting for 10 years. Re mfg. engine, head,lifters,brakes etc. I am having a lot of carburetor issues. Have put on a rebuilt carter but have not gotten it to perform well. Hard to start, flooding and more. Have had it to several shops with not much improvement. Tried a nutter conversion which helped but still not right. Have heard that a weber carb. may be the answer. Help!

The Carters are POS. Either the Weber or the MC2100. Use the search function here or Google 258CID jeep engine and watch what comes up.

I installed a rebuilt Carter and was pulling my hair out wit the exact. same problems you mention. Weber or MC2100 is right depends on you prefrence . I converted my 90 to a MC2100 and have been very pleased.
Cheers,
Bern

I went the expensive route and upgraded to the Howell fuel injection system. If your budget allows, it is definately a good way to go.
