I have a 88 yj factory straight six and carb, at first it would not start so i changed the fuel filter and pump and blew out fuel lines. it will start and run but after shifting into second and on up it will bog down. I am considering changing out the carb for an up grade? anyone have suggestions on fixing or a replacment?

Search "Motorcraft 2100" or "Howell" swap.

Is your O2 sensor working? I had that happen on my 90 and the O2 sensor was bad. Sounds strange but that is what fixed it.

Good Luck!
