    Default 88yj with idle problem

    Please Help i have a problem with my 88yj with a 2 barrel carter carb! I changed the two fuel lines that go from the filter to the carb after doing that it surges at idle. What happened and how do I fix it?

    Sounds like the idle tubes need cleaning. I'll see if I can find the link.

    The Carter BBD carb is a pain when they don't work right, which is usually after about 10K miles!

    A great upgrade is the MC2100 swap, but for now, a good cleaning of the idle tubes should work.
