Was wondering about a Carb for a gas engine.

OK, Just wondering, I have a " insert a gas engine here " and I don't have the money for pane or fuel injection. I understand the price of these carbs you can have propane but thought I'd ask !

I seen a Carb in Jegs and Summint that is designed to work in extream angles. There is a Lowrider series and a off road series, I know how those lowriders move and hop and stuff. But would they work for the angles we see in our sport ?

Do many people run Carbs in crawling ?

Donuts1 (Jonas) is the only person I know that could make a carb run at any angle on a SBC.

I jacked with mine for ever before I finally caught the stupid thing on fire at Hot Springs one trip and I was done with it.

If you don't go propane, put a Qjet on it. They will handle the angles and bouncing the best. There was a comparison in one of the 4x4 mags and the Qjet was the best for what you want to do. I ran one for years and Bogin44 is still running one.

A plain jain Qjet will be your best bet for simplicity and reliability. Itll "do".

As stated before me....Propane. JY kits are getting harder to find,but 9 times out of 10 will bolt right up and run better than any high dollar carb in the ruff stuff.

IMO, if you are going to wheel extreme angles I would stay away from a carb. No matter what angle they are suppose to run at, they all seem to have issues. TBI can be had for cheap, about as close to FI you can get if you want to stay gasser.

If I was to start from scratch or a carb, I'd go pane.

A Qjet or old Holley or Mastercraft two barrell are the best chance if going carb.

Don't you have a diesel in your rig? Im not a mechanic but those don't have carbs.
Qjet, I had a edelbrock with the spring loaded needle and it would still die out on extreme down angles.

It is a diesel, but I wanted to know if and what carbs would work in this sport. Being new to the game I try to gather information to help out others that may not know.

I feel like the more I can gather the better I can help myself and others.

IMO there is no place for carbs in rock crawling. Pane runs the show, then FI (usually expensive), then TBI (less expensive alternative to FI).

Technically TBI (throttle body injection) isn't considered a true FI ( fuel injection) by most.

I always thought it was (throttle body)or(Port injection). LOL Both use injectors. But I see your point about the TB.

I am running a Holley Truck Avenger on a 408CI SBC in my YJ. I goes up almost everything I tackle. If the YJ doesn't go up, it isn't the carbs fault. I plan to eventually by a mall-crawler TJ. Then I will make the YJ a full time crawler. When I do that, I will probably go to propane.

Re: Was wondering about a Carb for a gas engine.

I ran a motorcraft 2100 2 barrel on my 304, had to mount it backwards to keep it running up hill, downhill it would stumble some. I swapped to propane this year, and IMO that's best thing I've ever done.
