I have a holley 4 barrel on a Chevy 350 in my CJ7. I recently purchased this CJ and haven't taken it offroad yet. Someone said that the Holly's are notoriously bad offroad and that there must be somethings that can be done to improve it.
Anyone have any specific recommendations, so that I don't keep having problems on the trail because of the carb?
1986 CJ7, Chevy 350, D44/D30, more to come shortly
actually.. i have done all that.. i have the offroad kit..it comes with spring loaded needle valves and some other goodies. i also lowered the floats, and extended the vent tubes...and it doesn't run anywhere near as well as jeepgods stock q-jet.

oh yeah, and a 2000 tj, 4.0, dana 44, nv3550
Mark, been there done that, and still it would not perform to my expectations.I have a set of off-road needles and seats in my garage that I used for a while. Chris is right about the Q-jet it works excellent in the off camber positions. I did get a center hung float Holley for a while and it still was not great. It really depends on what you expect from your carb. If you do a little off camber stuff these neeedles and seats work ok.You will also need to extend the float bowl vents with some flexible fuel hose. But if you want to go wild get a Q-jet or a Projection unit.I will see where the off-road kit is hiding. Let me know if you might be interested in it. Ricky...seeya...
