Cj7 and holley carburetor question, please help :)

Ok, tried posting on newbie, but no responses so far, so I am hoping you guys could help


To start, I am not very familiar with carbs, and have not worked on them since my Go-kart days. I have recentlty acquired a Jeep CJ7, 4 banger 1986, and the Jeep is in good shape, but teh carb was taken apart. It was a holley, single barrel, (not sure the model number).

Since I did not want to deal with putting the previous carb back together, since it seemed like parts could be missing, I found a cheap and new two barrel holley, model #64-7187 *** 2 BBL.ROCHESTER.

The new carb has two barels, som my question is: how can I adapt this carb to my Jeep, is that possible? liekl a body throttle, or what can be used to install this carb on the Jeep? My intake manifold has one hole for the previous carb, so what can I put in place to use this carb?

Ideas appreciaeted

Thanks,

Gui

Or you could just get a 2bbl manifold and not waste time.

Oh! In that case, change the engine!
Good luck with finding an adapter. Maybe you could score a weber set up for cheap- dunno.
