I want a new Carb

I have a 90' 6cyl 4.2... i have a feeling my carb is going bad and ive read a lot of bad reviews about the stock carb on the 90 wranglers.

does anyone reccomend a spacific one? im on a pretty tight budget... and like i said its a 1990 lol.. i dont need a perfect one i just want something better than mine =]

anyone got any ideas of where i can get one for cheap? and any reccomendations in brands and etc..?

Personally, I'd recommend going through the local junkyards and finding an older ford with a Motorcraft 2100 or 2150 on it. Your looking for one with 1.08 venturis (its cast on the drivers side of the carb). Rebuild it, buy the adapter for ~$15 and throw it on there. There are full kits for these with freshly rebuilt carbs, the adapter and the air filter, but you can generally save money by putting it together yourself.
