Thumbs up Carb upgrade from Carter to Motocraft 2100

I've just replaced my crappy old Carter with a 2100 upgrade kit which I bought from Michael Ehrmann on Ebay (PM me if you need details). I've no smog test here so it was pretty basic, but I know he does regular smog kits.

I am extremely happy with the results of the swap - took less than 3 hrs for an idiot like me and now the Jeep runs SO smooth. The carb was already jetted and ready to go. In fact the intial startup took less time than a regular crank


All this junked


Now so much neater!

Andy

You wont regret it Hots, I wish I'd done it much sooner. The kit's great - & being on a fairly remote island, I was a bit worried that something odd may come up or some part not quite right & I'd be stuck. I needn't have, everything just worked first time.

Nice! I'm going through a neglected YJ I bought this summer and this carb is in my sights on ebay right now. Now that you have some miles on the carb, what are your overal impressions?

so i would like to do this swap but have been given a motorcraft carb that is 1.21, not the 1.08 sized venturies. would this work as well and might it be even better for high altitude?

It will work, but runs richer than the 1.08. I have the 1.21 that I confiscated from my nephew. It runs great, but a little rich at start up and idle. I did the TFI ignition upgrade and it help it out a lot. Burns more of the fuel with the hotter coil.

okay thanks. i have heard that at this altitude i actually need smaller venturis but may try this one anyways and if it doesn't work too well i'll look for the smaller or an altitude compensated 2100.
