Since you have a manual you don't need anything except the carb. Get on the Autozone website and search all the stores in your area for the 80457s, my local store has them on the shelf for $199. I discovered that after spending nearly $300 on mine.
No joke? I paid $300 plus shipping for mine also. I would have never guessed a local store would be cheaper.

Boy that sure does sound sexy. I guess I better keep a lookout for that. Whatever did you determine about the ac compressor?

Once the monsoon season passes I can get it packed and weighed so I can give you a price. BTW, I have had two others asking about it since then.

BTW, I have one of those carbs, but I won't give it away.

If you decide to sell the compressor instead let me know. I can send some money your way.

Lastly, how much wampum would it take to get said carb into my possession? I remember hearing about this carb a couple years ago it seems like.

RE: Carburetor question

The deal on the compressor is what the original deal was, free, just pay shipping. On the carb, I had a guy with a 69 CJ ask about it, but he never came back. It is missing the correct bowl nuts for the transfer pipe, but I have the pipe. I told him $100 and it will need to be rebuilt.

MikeSteward is starting off with a positive reputation.
I ended up going with the 0-80457S Carburetor, and actually decided to upgrade my intake as well. Like I said, I'm a bit of a newbie with a lot of this stuff... so I'm hoping I made an informed decision when I selected my new Intake Manifold. I went with the Weiand Stealth 8012. Does that seem logical?
