You can find them on Clist, Ebay or your local pick a part yard. Just be sure it's a 1.08 venturi model.
If you are the least bit handy w/ a wrench, you can put the entire thing together (including reubuild kit, carb cleaner, air filter, gaskets, throttle linkage & adapter) for about 75 bucks.
I've got mine tuned for mileage (now gets 15+ in town & 20 highway, if I keep it at 70mph)....and will bark the tires whenever I want, with fantastic throttle response everywhere. 650 RPM idle that's smooth as silk.
It looks & performs like a brand new carb.

|googoo||I ordered the 2150 from the ebay guy and I have no complaints. The nutter bypass was a must do in my case. I have a 1990 YJ 4.2...Thought my problem was the carb originally so I bought the new carb and things seemed fine until I realized the ecm wouldn't recognize the new carb ...its a different animal. Still had the ignition gremlin but don't regret upgrading to the mc2150. Turns out ...(after changing almost everything in the ignition system) to no avail I.might add...that ingenious did the Nutter...she seems fine|

Computers and web sites are a challenge to me so bear with me...
I've spent hours looking at links and threads concerning carbs and ignition issues with an 89 jeep wrangler, 4.2.
I'm ready to buy a 2150 carb and whatever else in needed for it. WHAT is "the rest"?
I want to get ride of the dist system. HEI, what all is recommended for this swap?
I live in northern Virginia (emissions testing)and have a house in West Virginia west of Winchester if anybody is local that wants to meet with me to go over what I need to do. If not can somebody help me out with what their thoughts are and where to get the parts at a fair price.
I'm not ready to got to junk yards and find an old dist to modify. I used to do all that, getting too old now.
I did do the "nutter" 8 years ago and it has passed better that when all the junk was hooked up.

Here is his eBay seller name: ehrmannmp
Working on my install now. Carb looks great. Mine hasn't started yet, though not due to carb. I'm chasing an ignition issue that started before carb swap.

thanks i'll look. i found a guy named topspeed something that was a top seller, but after contacting him he wasnt familiar with using the 2150 on jeeps....i'll look for your guy.

just Nutted my 89 Sahara 2 days ago. The timing was a snap, but I am ordering the 2150 from the Ebay dude (still got the stock carter)
Also, i got the DUI dizzy coming my way with new plugs and performance wires. Should have it in all by next week.

|gmclb7||Ordered a mc2150 kit from the ebay guy. I feel comfortable about the nutter bypass other than changing the timing. Is this difficult?|

If you are dead set on keeping a carb setup, good luck.
If you want to spend a little more and gain ALOT, try this:
not only do you get Fuel Injection, but you eliminate 70% of the underhood mess and tangles of vacuum lines, you lose the Pulse air injection, and gain a boatload of power and dependability.

|shadyjeep||I just replaced my Weber 34 DGEC carburetor with the Motorcraft 2150 from the Ebay guy. He sent me a Carburetor that was set up for my region and was a perfect fit for my driving needs. He was great to work with and his kit was ready to go. I would suggest it to anyone who is looking for a trouble free Carb and doesn't have the money for fuel injection swap. I had severe bogging and other issues and all have been perfect since the swap. I did replace all gaskets and vac lines prior to swap. I have a 1990. I have great low end and around town acceleration and no problem on the highway either. Good Luck!|

Best carb setup for 89 4.2
I have decided to upgrade the carb on my 89 due to the constant bogging down with acceleration. Have read that a 2100 or 2150 motor craft is a good choice and have seen the kits on ebay. Is this the best way to go?
