Re: 3000 RPM Bog.
I feel that my local 4WD store is ripping me off. I bought the Jeep with only 94k on it in Nevada before Turkey Day and drove it back across the country, and took the long way (3000+mi) back home to Charlotte. I can tell you of my cross country adventures through southern Utah in another message. Firstly, I told the 4WD mechanic of my symptoms at 3000 rpm. I agreed to let him do the Nutter Bypass and adjust the carburetor, $150. I passed on the 5 hour carb rebuild that he said the jeep "absolutly needed. He claims that he did the Nutter Bypass, but that it wouldn't fix the problem until I have my clogged cat converter replaced. I had the cat checked out with the heat gun and some pressure gauge and it is working perfectly fine and no exhaust restrictions. Now, I'm questioning whether he really did the bypass at all. I looked, but don't see any wires that have been cut, spliced.... What are the visual indications that the bypass has been performed? After finding our awesome forum that has brought all of us together, I have seen many references to fuel pressure to be increased to 3 lbs. vs factory 2.5lbs, which might be my problem. Could someone please tell me how to increase the fuel pressure on my Carter BBD? I dunno. Is the TR TFI upgrade recommended, even without the bypass? Thanks for your replies. I'll post some pictures of the Jeep when I figure out how to do that as well. Regards, Todd
