If its never been rebuilt you might try it once, certainly cheaper than a Webber but.....don't hold your breathe..

I have an 89 with a 4.2 5spd. I decided to go against all of the great advice regarding other types of carbs. and went with a rebuilt that was done by a local carb. shop that I know. My 89 runs great with this guy's stock rebuilt Carter carb. However, I don't think I would have stayed with the stock carb. if I had to order a rebuilt from a company on-line. In that case I would heed the advice from numerous individuals on this forum and go with a Weber or MC.

i seem to be having trouble with the choke not working properly just wandering if a rebuild might help cause the aftermarket ones are kinda pricey
