Motorcraft 2100 on hills

Just a quick note on my experience today with my favorite smooth idling carb at the local gravel pits. It idles just as smoothly at a severe upward incline. I finally stalled the motor trying to idle up a hill with it, barely a foot on the gas. Can't see how fuel injection could have helped me climb higher, as eventually the tires just spun. I never had problems with the old carter climbing hills, although I felt it lost power at inclines and I stalled it many times climbing sand hills with full throttle once the wheels dug in deep. It was like that sand was a dynamometer sucking up all 120 hp from my trusty 258 once mommentum ruan out and the wheels got half burried in sand. Won't be till summer that I get a chance to try the sand hills out with the MC2100.

Re: Motorcraft 2100 on hills

I like the 2100 as well. I've run the jeep on some near verticle climbs with just a few sputters. It'll usually climb any dirt hill without any input from the pedal, and I've got the idle set at about 600. No swap to EFI for me anytime soon either!

The people I have seen using the 2100 are happy with it. I think there is also a mod to replace the carter bbd on a 6 cylinder with it.
