    Default So lets talk carbs...

    Not the ones you eat, but the ones on engines. When I took the CJ 7 out, when I stalled on a hill I was ****ed. Then, this last weekend, a gentlemen was driving a CJ 5 and he did the same thing. Are there modifications or certain carburetors that are good for offroading?

    As far as I know, the better one's are the kind called Fuel Injection, that's the limit of my knowledge. I hope this helped.

    For you anything, but now that you mention it, a buddy of mine had a problem with the fuel pump and fuel tank in his Scrambler. He replaced both and things worked out sweet, no more problems. His would die just going up decent hills.

    It's not that it stalls going up hills. Bad wording.

    On inclines on the trail, if I stall I can't restart the engine. Something about how fuel is dispersed throughout the carb or intake. I dunno. New to carbs. Maybe I'll just throw the hand throttle on when I get it back, crank up the RPM's on hill climbs and call it good.

    The MC 2100 (Motorcraft) -1.08 Venturi - typically found on Ford trucks with 302 V8's. So far it has worked pretty well for me. My parents have some property up in the Virginia mountains (where my Avatar pic was taken), and I didn't think twice on stopping & starting due to the Jeep wouldn't restart, it just did.

    Dude what kind of carb are you running? A lot of guys stick with two barrel carbs for wheeling to help with this problem. I run an Edelbrock 600cfm four barrel on my 360. If you check float levels it may help. I also turn up my idle speed to about 1000 so little skinny pedal is needed unless I am climbing something. There are offroad needle kits for carbs too. You might look into that. I have been fine with idle speed turned up and I'll roll it before it dies.

    Oh, and learn how to drive a stick...=)

    lmao. where's that damn middle finger icon?

    No excuses, just better training I guess. Far cry from rocking a geared TJ on a climb. At any rate, I think I'll do the hand throttle first and see if I still need to adjust. Just need to get her back. I have been thinking about the hand brake idea that Hill Bille posted up in a tech thread (which I may revive), but I like the ability to lock it out so I can keep both hands on the wheel.

    ^^^ hand throttles are a good way to go. My old man had a 94 wrangler with the straight six and locked up with a rock-crawler throttle. It was a sweet set-up. Super cheap too. Was nice for pulling trees around the property getting that steady pull not rolling back all the damn time. We could set the RPM with a little wing-nut type deal. It was like a bike gear shifter, but had a little more controllable throw so as not to rev like a SOB. using an old thumb throttle off a quad or dirtbike might work.

    I like it. I was actually thinking about the choke cable that I don't need anymore. Maybe I can modify/adapt it to function as a hand throttle.
