How\'s the Weber on the hills?

Hows the Weber on the hills? I have the Carter BBD on my 79 CJ5, and though it runs fine on the road for the most part, it tends to flood on real steep climbs and die lean on downhill (or sudden stops). As I can't afford EFI right now, I was wondering about the Weber. OR..... are there any good Carter mods for better off-level performance?


In America, anyone can become president. That's one of the risks you take.

I have a Weber with a fuel pressure regulator, never seems to flood out on the steepest stuff. I've had people ask if it was FI, it will idle down low and not flood out like the BBD.

Re: How\'s the Weber on the hills?

I have a weber, but haven't gotten around to getting a fuel pressure regulator yet. The only time it's ever cut out on me, I was almost vertical climbing out of a ravine, and if it did stay running I would have ended up horizontal, and not in a good way - she would've gone over backwards. I've never had a problem going downhill, or being off-camber, and I have laid the jeep on it's side once too... no damage though.
