Thanks Lindel,

I never went away - been lurking every now and then.
My son took the long Rangie away, and I never quite got used to driving a Volvo to work; the Disco on 32s takes just as much gas to drive to work as the Wagoneer, but the Wag rides much nicer. So...
... 'soon as I get back from the sandbox, I'll devote some time to get back from a FSJ owner to an FSJ daily driver again.

Holly for 1986 Cherokee?

Hi Folks,

I just acquired a 1986 Cherokee 160K with auto trans. When I couldn't get the vehicle started I took it to the local jeep(dealer) shop. They wanted $1000- for a rebuilt carb(no labor, just the carb)..... I eventually got a local garage to slap on a carb from the junk yard and do a bunch of other stuff for $600- It is now slow to start up, but once warmed up runs like a champ. I'm new to Jeeps, but have heard the carburetors can give you a lot of problems. I saw an add for 'remanufactured' Holly Carbs for my vehicle for about $525- which can be ordered thru' Auto Zone in 2 days.

I was wondering if I should consider the Reman' Holly should I have trouble with my existing unit? Your advice would be appreciated!

Lincoln

Take a look at www.summitracing.com or www.jegs.com for Holley carbs, and you should be able to get a remanufactured carb for $300 at the most. I'd start looking elsewhere to get your parts.

You'd be money ahead to pick up a shop manual of some kind and do the work yourself.

Thanks, Lindel

I will check out those sites. I plan on doing a lot of my own rebuilding, but I was desperate to get the jeep functional.

Hey speaking of Holleys, I need a rebuild kit for a model 1920 on my '65 with a 230. Any of you guys know where I might get one?

I think Ristows thread on his Holley should be linked over to this one.
