Re: Looking for a Carb Recommendation
Allow me to dirty the waters a little. If you don't have it now, it won't be long before your jeep has to meet emissions standards..and one of them will be visual. If you replace the carb, it will most likely fail. I have tried other options myself, including the Weber. While the Weber ran better on mid to upper range, I got real fed up with it's low end behavior.
Overall, I prefer the BBD. Yes, the BBD takes a little more work to keep running right...but once you have it right, it works well. As AllLockedup noted, you don't want to replace the carb if you have other problems. If your engine is already worn out and your planning on an overhaul, then the carb is most likely not your problem and spending $$ on a new one will not yield any positive results.
One of the biggest problems with the BBD is vacuum leaks. Fix those first and then let us know what problems your having. I need someone's help on this next item, but I belive that if you still have the PCV solenoid, you can remove it also. But I have no doubt that you will need all your other vacuum problems fixed otherwise, you will have a lean miss at idle.
