He sent me a nice email so I replied to him>>
HogeyWrangler sent me a lovely email a little while ago, which I already replied to.
I informed him that asking such a basic question really isn't going to help him that much, and that he could have found the same answers in a matter of minutes using SEARCH.
The real issues he should be seeking info on are:
Will I need new gaskets?
Where do I get them? Do I have to make them?
What about jetting?
What about throttle linkages?
What about throttle cables?
What about vacuum sources on the carb?
What about EGR, etc?
It's always that small stuff that will kill you. You're much better off doing your research, then asking educated, pointed questions to address the real problems at hand rather than asking a sweeping, generalized question.
But what do I know, I only see:
"can I convert my NA(normally aspirated) 300ZX to a TT(twin turbo)"
"how much do stock rims weigh?"
"can I run NOS on my Z?"
"why does my Z shake when I brake hard?"
"why does my Z squeel when I first start it and I hit the gas?"
"what clutch should I get?"
asked 2, 4, 10 times a day.
Know how old that gets in a hurry?
Know how many of the vets who've been on the site for years have seen the same Q's hundreds of times? Guess how many answer it? None.
It's almost ALL in the FAQ and Tech sections for one thing, and we have nearly 1 million posts archived and searchable on my 300ZX site.
Back to this site, why not spend 10 or 15 mins doing a search to learn what kinds of carb will even fit on the Jeep first? Then look for the detailed stuff, where to get it, how to make it fit, etc.
THEN post an educated question to get that piece of info you need but just couldn't find.
And/or email the person who posted the useful info and has the setup you are interested in on their Jeep. Maybe they don't check the forum very often and will never see your post, even if they are willing and want to help out.
Anyway, that's my philosophy and it has treated me well.
I find that if you do some legwork FIRST, then ask questions ppl are a lot more willing to help you and share info with you. No one likes a slacker, and no one goes out of their way to help one.
Just my opinion.
