Low hood CJ2A with F134 engine carb question

Post by lang4dweird » Sat Sep 27, 2003 9:01 am

I bought a 48 CJ with an F134 engine a few years ago. It has the stock carb on it, so it has that ugly box on the hood. I'd like to put on a shorter carb on it so I can remove the box and put the windshield down while hunting. I've heard that a '60-64 Falcon carb will fit. I recently bought an L134 engine that I may put back in it, but I'd like to try this engine out at high altitude hunting first. Any suggestions on a carb and remote air cleaner set-up?

Thanks

Mike :o

I have seen the low profile carb on an M38, so I know it works. I think you are right on the Ford Falcon carb. I presume it is a short carter YF.

Now, the float valve may be wrong for the jeep on the falcon carb, so don't deep six or sell the carter YF from the f head until you verify the size of the orifice.

Since the jeep used the smallest of orifices of any application of the YF, it is almost a certainty that you will need to swap the valves.

Go a Solex, that is what they are using as a replacement carb on the low hood Ford GP's.....
