Re: Carter YF and YFA carb info

Thats a good looking little carb, if the Carter doesn’t pan out it might be worth a try. I briefly looked for some numbers on the carb but couldn’t see anything meaningful. After looking again I’m 99% sure its YFA. Andrew will be down Tuesday and we’ll start working on the jeeps then, might drop the...

Re: Carter YF and YFA carb info

Good info in those links, I’ll get the numbers off it today but I also think it is a YFA. I did some looking and Comp makes a few cams for the 2.3, smallest being their High Energy 201/201@.050, .400 lift, 110 Lsa, 800-4800 operating range. I think we need to get the carb and ignition sorted first t...

Re: 2001 Toyota Tacoma "June"

Looks good. I had a regular cab ‘97 2.7/5spd that I wheeled the heck out of bone stock, they are quite capable trucks. Looking forward to seeing more. :beer:

Re: Big Snatch TJ Build

Looks good, if you go with 1-ton axles better step up to at least 39’s or you’ll actually be losing ground clearance over what you have.

Re: "Betsy" 1953 Willys CJ-3b cheap jeep gone wrong

I should have done a better job documenting the build on my ‘49, glad to see you took some pics along the way. For some reason I was thinking this one was the one from Ohio. Maybe that was just a parts jeep, I guess my memory is shot.

Re: Off-road engine building 101

Looks good! Can't wait to hear it run! Thanks man, it sounds really good :mrgreen: Buttoned the motor up with Felpro rubber oil pan and valve cover gaskets with studs for leak free running and easy removal. Also reinstalled my 1 1/2” shorty headers (which turned out to be problematic), my Holley hi...

The top end consists of Edelbrock E-Street 170cc heads with 60cc chambers, Edelbrock Performer intake, Comp 1.6 roller rockers and as pictured a Crane 272H flat tappet cam (which I swapped out, more on that later.) I completely disassembled the heads and spent a few hours with a die grinder doing so...

Re: Off-road engine building 101

Just pulled the 351w out of the ‘79 for a freshen up so I thought I’d update this thread with a few things I’ve learned. Terry and I built the original motor almost 15 yrs ago and it has 11,000mi on it, much of those are off-road miles and horrible abuse. The motor still had 190psi of compression on...
