2.8 V6 carb ?


Recommended Posts

I did some research the last couple hours on the Weber, and it turns out they haven't changed - they're just as fickle as they ever were. Seems a better bet to go with the E2SE.

Nothing could possibly be worse than the OEM carb that came on the 2.8L. If you don't wish to buy a new maniforld, go with the Weber. A friend of mine in Greece had one on his XJ and he was very satisfied with it.

Thanks, Eagle. But I may need something just as a stop gap for now until I figure out what I am gonna do with this engine.

 

Did Jeep/AMC use the same carb for both the 4cyl and the 2.8? I have found a 4 cyl one for $100 rebuilt. Well, they claim it's for a 4 cyl, or off a 4 cyl.

 

I dunno bout that Weber. I think I would rather get the Edelbrock intake and 4bbl adapter and drill it for a 1bbl rochester than go with that weber. In any case, I may have to go back to Cali next year for a contract, so this thing will need to pass smog... ;( I may be stuck with the V2Se regardless. Ugh. Did they make a different E2SE for California?

I'm pretty sure the 4cyl carb was a 1bbl? I used that Weber on a friends Montero to replace the Mikuni. He was happy with it.

Has anyone diagnosed the choke problem? It is an electric choke, maybe just a bad wire? Or just a bad choke coil?

It's a rebuilt E2SE advertised as off a 4cyl jeep that I was talking about. Varajets are all 2 bbl aren't they? Otherwise they are called quadrajets or monojets, no? This carb on my Comanche has never been rebuilt in its life. So, I am of the opinion I replace it(especially if it's a $100 investment as stated previously) or go to something else that is significantly better than this V2SE vs dropping more money into it in rebuild parts and time. It seems to me the V2se from the 4cyl is identical. It makes sense, they made nearly the same power and probably had similar vacuum. ;) That rebuilt carb is $100 vs say, $180 for the Edelbrock manifold, $90 for the upper part to fit a 4bbl carb, and them a small holley at $375 or so, or a 1MV which I can find new for $150 or less. So $100 VS $400-650? Uh... I think I just made up my mind.

 

It all depends on if the linkage and hoses will match up. Or, am I better off getting one for a V6 GM?
