time for the nutter bypass?????

Hey all, went wheeling out a the desert this weekend and had a blast. no major problems to speak of, just an annoying one.

I've got a 258 with the carter carb. did the TR upgrade. the thing overall runs good. on a scale of 1-10 i'd give it a 8.5. when its good its good, when its bad its BAD!

Heres what happens, at times it'll idle fine for days, then, it'll stop idleing and fight. when it won't idle, I can watch the that needle moving in and out like made. its like its over correcting back and forth till its so far behind and it dies.
thats what the nutter bypass is supposed to correct right??

thanks in advance

Re: time for the nutter bypass?????

i have an 87 wrangler with the 258, and i replaced my carter with a weber. I had so many problems with the carter i couldnt take it any more. My engine was runnin the same way. I had rebuilt it and when it ran good it ran good, but as soon as the carter started acting up it was a POS. Anyway after i replaced the carb , i did the nutter bypass, and it runs like a top. The only problem is passing emissions.

1. It had better be a trail rig,
2. The nutter won't pass Calfornia Carb laws.

I replaced my old carb with a weber. I had the same problems. It runs great now.

What is the model number of the Weber, so I know what to have my local parts store order me one?
