Re: Weber Carb intake modifications?
<blockquote><font class="small">In reply to:</font><hr>
Greetings, I have a weber carb on a 84 CJ-7 with a 256. I'm concerned about water intake into the rectangle filter that came with the carb. Does anyone know any ideas on how to shield and/or relocat the air intake for this type of carb? Thanks, Kryptonic
1) It's a 258 CID, unless you got jipped.
2) The filter is a K&N style gauze filter, properly oiled (you can use the K&N kits for this). It will keep most water out.
3) If you wish to relocate it, weber makes a cover you can use to connect it to a snorkle or use one of the tubes like TJ's do.

4) Much easier and cheaper solution: use a set of your wife's old panty-hose as a prefilter, they will keep water out.
