If you're looking to replace your carb it'd be better to upgrade to a Motor Craft 2100, or one of the Weber Carbs that are out there. Idk if you have to deal with any emission laws but that might be the only set back

Don't want to fail the visual on smog check. Is the carb in the link a Chinese copy of what is already on there?

Call Quadratec and ask them if it's a Chinese-made carb. I don't know about Crown, but a lot of Omix Ada parts are made in China now. Where in CA are you? I can recommend a good shop in San Bernardino for tuning and smogging (he got my 90 to pass after 3 failed attempts) and the Carburetor Exchange in Riverside can rebuild or exchange yours for one already rebuilt.

CA requires that vehicles less than 35 years old pass a smog exam every two years. All smog equipment must be OEM or C.A.R.B. certified. For Jeeps with carbs, this means that we must retain the Carter BBD carb or upgrade to TBI.

There are a lot of people who curse the state for these tight laws, but I have lived in SoCal my entire life and am old enough to remember Smog Alerts when everyone was advised to stay inside, kids could not go outside during recess, and you couldn't see the mountains 30 minutes away through the dark haze. I developed asthma in my 40s from growing up during this era. Remember the pictures they showed of China during the Olympics? That's what LA used to be like in the early 70s. The skies are relatively clean now because of the smog laws, so I know they work and I respect them.

Well I called the Carburetor Exchange in El Monte and they sent me a rebuilt carb. Their website stated that the bush the throttle shaft bores which is important.

Put it on and this thing just purrs. Runs like a top. So far, I highly recommend it.

Glad to hear the Carburetor Exchange worked out for you. I've had good luck with the one in Riverside.
