holley 2bbl

a friend gave this to me, was wondering if if would work better for wheeling than my edelbrock. it's a holley 500 cfm and it would be going on a 4 barrel intake using an adaptor. As I understand these are based on the motorcraft carbs and i've heard a lot of good things about them. I don't mind losign a little bit of power but I need better climbing and sidehill performance.Engine is a stock 351m with edelbrock intake

edelbrock carbs....

or at least the one i saw was made by weber.had the weber W cast right into the houing.as far as holley goes,i've never ran one, seen then fire ball on the trail i run a 38mm weber on my 69 fj40 and love it! but, if your going to run the holley, i believe they offer what they call a off-road kit, keeps the fuel from splashing out of the vents. just my .02

I had the 350 variant on my FJ40 f0r a very long time.

I got it to run on steep inclines without issue.

They are all about a bit of work to get them functioning perfectly.

It will need the spring loaded needle and seat, plus the vent/bowl baffle to work at all off road. If you wheel in any kind of altitude you should swap out the 50cc accelerator pump for a 30cc shot. The 50cc is way too much above 5000ft. You will need a few power valves handy too.

Why even mess with it? By the time you buy the adapter and parts , you could get a Q-jet off of e-bay.

Holley's are a PITA to set up . . . Way too complicated for wheeling. My Ford 360 had one and I never did get it to run right. Finally, after the 3rd or 4th power valve I installed the Holley on the garbage can and replaced it with a 350 CFM Ford 2150 from PnP. I haven't had a problem since.

I tried running that carb, too hard to jack with. Went MC 2100 and it runs at all angles.

I swapped a motorcraft 2100 out and put the Holley 2300 on ( I think mine is a 350 CFM not 500 CFM).

it runs great, a lot more driveability.
this was on a FSJ with an AMC 360, It wasnt a hard core crawler, but I did stand it on its tailgate a few times with no problems.

I still have it on the 360 to go into my CJ5
