Hi All! My 1990 YJ (Mistress Beech), needs a carb. Engine is a 4.2, 248, auto trans. Looking for a very solid rebuilder, or new?
Thanks, Jim

I've got a motorcraft 2100 that is in like new condition. I believe I have the adapter plate for it as well. Let me know if know if you're interested and we can work out a price.

Hi,,, cool. I am going to have to look up a motorcraft 2100. Is this something you were going to use for a 4.2? I will have more questions,,, I gotta get out and finish my front brakes before it rains,,, maybe!
Looking forward to your reply...
See ya,,, Jim

I had it on my YJ with a 4.2. I've since upgraded the head to a 4.0 head. My son has kinda taken it over and is looking to do a junkyard tbi upgrade, so we don't need the motorcraft anymore. It worked pretty good, much better than the old carter carb. I'll check and make sure I still have everything. With the adapter plate, it's pretty much just a bolt on if you have a downward pull throttle. It has the brackets on it already to just hook it up. And like I said, it's practically new. I bought it on ebay a while back from a guy that rebuilds them.

I feel the 2100 is the best conversion for a 258. Other then efi of course. I use to have my old cj standing up on a wall or face down a cliff and still fire up every time. Winter- summer- hot-cold, never mattered. Loved it.

Mine is a 5 speed, I would imagine it would just as well with an automatic.
