Yeah, I was thinking about putting a new carburetor on it. Looking at the Weber in a Jeep Catalog. Since I was putting $$ in to some other things on my list like Wheels, Tires, bumpers, Carpet kit, and all new top… I was hoping to avoid any other bigger ticket items. They all seem to run about $500. But if that’s what it comes down to I’ll have to bite the bullet.
I have a buddy that used to work on Jeeps at a dealership and he came by and we lifted the metering rods in the current Carter Lean Burn carb. Put a new O2 sensor on it and did a complete tune up with Cap, Rotor, Plugs and Wires. Also have a new Coil. Lifting the metering rods helped the motor come alive a little but did not eliminate the 2800 RPM Hesitation. The best way to describe it is… I used to race cars and you can feel the motor was giving up it wanted to lay over on the top end. My buddy told me these lean burn systems are pretty frustrating to work on when something is not working right.
