CJ7 304 Carb Question

Well my question is what should I do to make my setup run on inclines?

I plan on wheelin' with newer jeeps that are all fuel injected so I do not need to be concerned with issues climbing a hill. The setup I have now runs flawless on pavement but has issues off road on inclines.

Here are my specs:

304 bored .030 over
218 @ 50* cam
Edelbrock Performer Intake
Quickfuel 650 4-brl carb
Headers
DUI Igntion

My thoughts/questions?
Can I buy a kit or make adjustments so the existing carb will work?
Will a smaller Truck Avenger Off-road carb be too small?
Other Ides?

Thanks,
Nick

I do know that the original Ford carb is better on off camber trails and on inclines. I contemplated swapping mine out, but the mechanic/friend of mine knows the 1972-1975 jeeps inside and out...he has built 6 of them, and he swears by the Motorcraft stock carb on the 304s. It runs well on the off camber and hill climbs. It is only 2 barrel, but I have no problems... power is still good to me. I'm not a motor head, so I can't recall all the specs, but he rebuilt and tuned mine and have had zero problems at all out wheeling.

Ford motorcraft (MC 2100 or MC 2150). This would still work for your 1976 304...not much change motor wise...

The last 304 he built was all stock and it ran great. I've had guys ask about mine and they can't believe mine is running stock. Hope this helps, like I said, I'm not a motor head...just going by what I have had done and works pretty good for me.

I am pretty sure that is what was on my jeep. I need to dig up my old intake and carb and see what it is. I'd like to keep the 4-brl for the
"pretty" factor but function is more important.

Thanks
