You were with a reputable CJ technician.
Are you going to finish this task yourself?
I can guide you through all of the mechanical stuff.
I cost absolutely nothing!
Your carburetor (the Carter BBD) is a great system!
The carburetor is 40 years old, it has 40 years of wear on many of the parts.
Even buying a re-manufactured carburetor may still leave you with worn parts reused with in it.
There are some tedious adjustments that need to be made, sometimes the re-builder does not make these "tweaks" to the re-manufactured.
The average Joe with limited knowledge will build it wrong or damage a part without knowing it.
I'm almost embarrassed to make this suggestion, I have suggested this many times and so far, have always gotten good results (with local Jeeps)(With 2carpros forum fixes).
Seems that the Jeep Carter BBD carburetor is not made domestically anymore, re-manufactured's are about all that are available. And you still have an "old" carburetor!
Over the pond, they are making new ones! They work great! They adjust as they should!
It's been a while since they hit the market, they have gone up in price a little. They are still way cheaper than a re-manufactured, but just a little more than a rebuild kit. It's ready to go!
If you go this route, I will be glad to aid with installing it and tuning the Jeep properly!
I've looked over the whole bunch, this would be my best suggestion. See this link.
This link just won't last but so long (for all of you future followers).
This is a darn good price!
So we get the Jeep back, I help you install this and help you tune it.
A few evenings reading my stuff.
What do you think of this plan so far?
I don't think the other feller will work this cheap, most likely he does not love Jeeps as CJ MEDEVAC does.
As far as the choke goes, we can install a manual choke kit, I already have pics (and forum answers) for many of my Jeep operations.
