I am trying to figure out where to get a stock replacement carb for a 46 cj2a.

As a side note, This is my grandfathers jeep and currently the jeep has a new aftermarket carb but apparently will not idle when cold. HE said that he has messed with all the adjustments on the carb but nothing fixes the problem..... any ideas on why this is happening or what can be done to correct it? ( the jeep runs fine at high rpms, and idles fine after it is warm)

... this was never a problem with the stock carb ( this is why hes lookin for another)

The new carb just needs to be run with the choke on longer. I'm sure it's a manual choke,just need to leave it on longer. Not many people are used to that anymore,I have a couple of old vehicles w/manual chokes.

There's a handle on the dashboard. It reads 'Choke'.

When you start it and it's cold out, pull the choke handle all the way out. Tap the gas pedal once. Crank until it starts. Warm up. SLOWLY ease off the choke cable as the engine warms up.
