Don't know your $ situation but I'd suggest fuel injection kit or offenhauser manifold and a more efficient carb. There are plenty of aftermarket manifolds that allow you to bolt on carbs that aren't garbage. My 88 gives me nothing but problems. But living in Canada with the cold definatly doesn't help lol

I'm putting a weber 32/36 on mine, but I have experience with this carb on another vehcile. The motorcraft 2100 seems to be a popular swap for the 4.2 jeep guys. Is there something wrong with it?

From all that i have read the motorcraft 2100 is the correct carb to convert to on your jeep. why do you say its the wrong one?

I just installed the 2100 non smog on my 1990 yj along with the nutter and it's running like a dream..Idals at 650rpm with lighting throttle responce.. I must throw out props to michael Ehrmann for putting a complete kit together with fantastic directions at a good price for us jeepers. This is the ebay guy that everyone talks about..:)

When emmisions comes due he shows you how to modify the stock air cleaner so it looks stock and will pass inspection..For now i bought the crome air cleaner he sells for 22 bucks and looks sweet.

I bought my '87 yj with a Weber on it and I'm not happy with it. Not sure if the installer has something wrong or ????
I used to install Holley/Weber carbs on Opels back in the '70's and it was a great improvement over the Solex.
Now from what I've found the 2100 is the way to go for Jeeps.
