New Carb selection

In yalls opinion what is the best 2barrel carb to put on a stock 304 engine. I just got mine jeep back today and the 4 wheel shop I took it to suggested I put a new carb on it as it just won't adjust anymore and is slightly flooding. I asked about just rebuilding it but they said in their opinion I'd be better off putting on a new one. The only major off-roading my jeep wees is trails and cow pastures so power is not a major worry and hey I'm happy with my stock engine.

Re: New Carb selection

Why not use what originally was probably on it, a Motorcraft 2100 carburetor. I'm not sure why your old one can't or shouldn't be rebuilt. Its running too rich. During what conditions?

Re: New Carb selection

Its running rich all the time. It seems worse going down hill or coming to a stop. I jst keep wondering if the float is not right. It stuck after I had just replaced the power valve on it. I was thinking of going with a new 2100 but just wanted to explore options. They said they just think it's too old to be rebuilt.

Re: New Carb selection

I would try to find a shop that specializes in rebuilding carburetors and take it in there.

Re: New Carb selection

had my 2100 rebuilt for about $125 with tip, Idropped off in the morning and had it back at 4:30 the same day (hence the tip). works great looks brand new and the put an electrc choke on it for me. literally a 10 minute project and very little tuning once it was done.
