Re: Looking for a Weber

There are 2 common models of weber used on Jeep 258's (4.0 is typically FI). If you are running stock ignition, intake, and exhaust, the common part is the 32/36 progressive, if you are running upgraded ignition, header, cam, intake, or other performance mods, the 38mm is the deal.

The other thing you should consider is the MC2100 carb. Good reviews like the weber, but less finnicky and a LOT cheaper. Do a search here, both of these swaps have been covered exhaustively.

Re: Looking for a Weber

I have a used Weber 32/36 that still worked good when I pulled the 258 and started my 360 swap. I still have the instuction manual somewhere, also. The carb is complete with adapters and everything. Would let it go for a fair price.... Ben

Re: Looking for a Weber

I have a Weber 32/36 that is only a couple months old. I'm pretty sure that I'll be selling it in another couple months, once I do my engine swap, which I need some help with. Just posted a question about it if ya wanna help. (Sorry about the plug!)

Tim I might be interested in your carb if the price is right.

I'm not sure but maybe 250 or so, not really sure what the market is like for a used weber. Bought it for 400 alltogether.

Re: Looking for a Weber

Does the weber carb really make alot of difference in performance?

Re: Looking for a Weber

Over the stock BBD on a 258?

Hell yes.
It makes it run.

It's not a rice miracle that will add 200 h/p, but the Mc2100 I used has been superb.
I still have a little problem with the cold starts, but that's expected in a SubZero climate. Just have to get a little more handy with the choke.
