MC2100 or Weber????

I am trying to decide what carb to run on my "new" 258. I have a Weber on my CJ7 and I like it, but it will die on extreme angles or if I bump it really hard. How does the MC2100 compare? Will it outperform the Weber off-road? It looks cheaper.

Thanks,
Tom

Re: MC2100 or Weber????

It appears to me that the 2100 is super simple. I think the float levels and accel. pump can be adjusted with the top cover off. I saw Commandtoad field strip, clean and reassemble in about 30 minutes. That includes 10 minutes adapting an airhose to blow it dry and on a crappy incline to boot!
Anyone running one a 225??

Re: MC2100 or Weber????

There is a lot to be said for simple things. I've never run one off road (hate phords), but, I see guys running motorcrafts doing some real rough stuff (rougher than most jeeps could stand), and not having any problems.

Mike said the 'toad was still running on it's side after a roll at Tellico. I believe it after a ride at Blairville. Once the trash got cleaned out, it was as smooth as FI the rest of the way.

Re: MC2100 or Weber????

I just finished putting on a MC2100 a few weeks ago. It was the best thing I ever did. I traded my old rear tire carrier off my CJ7 for a used 2100 a friend of mine just pulled off his 75 CJ5. I got it on and the first time I fired it up it went directly to and smooth idle and I did not have to adjust a thing. All I had to purchase was the adaptor plate and a cheap Mr Gasket air cleaner at Autozone. Good luck in your choice!!

The 2100 is sounding like the way to go. I will have to visit the junkyard tomorrow and see what I find.

Thanks,
Tom

Re: MC2100 or Weber????

I'll give the same advice I give every time this post comes up -- make sure you look at the throttle shafts when you get the carb from the junkyard.

These posts are typically followed by "not running well, think it's the throttle shaft bushings?"

Not saying at all that it's a bad swap, or that you didn't know to look at the shafts, just it seems that people seem to forget that a junkyard carb is from, well, a junkyard.

I have been very happy with the weber for many many miles now. It performs very well offroad in my opinion. And it's NEW out of the box.
