Has anyone reversed their carb on their jeep? I know some of the benifits I think I read a bit about it somewhere but I don't know much on this so any advice or info would be greatly apeciated. I'm off work for a bit so I have time to tinker, (not much tough)

Thanks

If you have a problem with fuel flow when climbing hills, when you flip it around you'll have problems going down hills. Thats about the only problems I can think of, except for linkage and fuel lines.

I would think a cable throttle would be the answer to the linkage.Just get a longer cable. Go around the engine ot the front. Make a bracket to hold, and add a spring on the other side to return the carb lever.

Have you seen the blue and black Zebra striped CJ10 that won one of the ARCA events last year. He runs a reverse mounted Q-JET.
