caarb issues

Are the carter bbd's worth rebuilding or would I be better off getting something different? I have 2 carters and niether work. I also have an old holly 2bbl that will bot down with an adapter, but cannot for the life of me figure out how to attach the throttle cable? Are there any replacement carbs that will bolt up and use the exsisting throttle cable and assymbly? Thanks

Re: caarb issues

Do you own a full size jeep with a 360 V8 ? if so what carb & intake setup would be best for fuel economy? i have a 2bl motorcraft carb & a stock intake now. Any suggestions would be helpful.thanks

Re: caarb issues

deer:

If you jump over to the short wheelbase board, you'll see many posts about problems with the BBD. Most replace with a Weber, but there are nearly as many posts on them as well. The most succesfull 2 bbl carb for on/off-road seems to be the Motorcraft 2100. Many posts with praise on that conversion also on the SWB board.

DHDPOWERCRUISER:

You have the best 2 bbl carb going. Keep what you have as the only thing better is a 4 bbl Quadrajet which would run appx. $750 for new carb and intake or fuel injection at twice the price.

Re: caarb issues

Thanks for the info Tim and Deer, im learning that im not the only one that has fuel economy blues [img]images/icons/blush.gif[/img]) well i just had to put a new water pump and hoses on my jeep,it runs a lot cooler now. I have a Holley model 2300 2 bl carb i bought for $50.00 the motorcraft i bought at a junk yard for $35.00 but when you stand on it the motorcraft doesn't act like it's getting enough gas, the Holley started dumping gas real bad so i took it off,but when the Holley was working right it had all kinds of power, do you think i should rebuild the Holley ?

Re: caarb issues

I personally don't like Holleys as they have too many small holes/passages that can plug with a spec of dirt/grit/contamination. They also do poorly when off-road. The Motorcraft when rebuilt and set up properly will give you less grief than the Holley and do very well when off-road. Holley's dominate at the dragstrip, but suck otherwise.

Re: caarb issues

Ok Tim,so what your saying is take the Holley with me the next time i go fishing and use it for a boat anchor? [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] I have to agree with you on the Motorcraft carb, Question; the Motorcraft carb i have on the jeep came off a ford econoline van with a 302 eng. do you think this one will have enough cfm for the 360? please let me know what you think and thanks for the info.....mike

Re: caarb issues

Yes, if it were a toy boat. Otherwise, it would make a good fishing weight for that big lunker you always wanted to catch. I'm not really up on how many different sized Motorcrafts were made. Your reference section of the library might yield more info. You could get a rebuilt Motorcraft for your 360 and use the Ford one you have as a trade-in core. Otherwise you might want to find one in a yard that's on either a 351 Ford or 360 AMC product. The SWB board here at ORC and <a target="_blank" href=http://www.ifsja.org>http://www.ifsja.org</a> forum boards might be other resources.

Re: caarb issues

Thanx again for the info Tim you have been a BIG help, i will check out the boards you mentioned. Have you ever heard of a Fishman carb? they were designed back in the 50s. I heard a story about them on the Art Bell radio show,they said that a 59' hearse was getting around 60mpg with one on it. I have surfed the web looking for them but haven't found any yet...Peace mike

Nope, that's one I haven't heard of. Hope you get things running right soon. Happy Trails.
