Question about 1988 Jeep Wrangler
'88 wrangler with straight 6 cyl. having chronic carb trouble!
Please advise on best solution... am considering changing to Weber carb but not sure if this is best ... are there special adapter plates or gaskets needed???????? Help!
Ok... If you have any experience with carbs, you can get a rebuild kit. The most important part of any rebuild is to clean out obstructions in the passageways. Most times this can be done by using carb cleaner and spraying compressed air through them.Most times, just spraying cleaner into carb while installed is a waste of time as debris usually consists mainly of fine rust particles from inside the fuel tank, which will remain in the fuel bowl unless physically removed. If you can't do this, next best option is to search local junkyards for a similar unit. When replacing, cut the fuel line in a convenient place ahead of the carb inlet and put an aftermarket filter in the line, to prevent debris from re-entering and causing further problems. Most carbs have the adjustments blocked off. before using, it is wise to have someone who knows how to remove those plugs, do this for you so you can adjust it after installed.
