Howell EFI

I have a line on a Howell EFI system for a Jeep 4.2. Can you folks think of a reason this might not work on a 223? I'll have to come up with an adapter plate of course to get it to fit on the intake.

I'm fed up with the carb that came on my truck. I've finally got almost all the bugs chased out of the truck. Gary's engine is running great, but now the carb is once again leaking like a ... well, something that leaks a lot. It's getting fuel from the mech pump that came with the motor GSisson sent me a while ago.

That's a lot more work that getting another carb. Would you have to swap to electric fuel pump as well for the higher pressure needed?

However, the motor did come from Gary, and he loves to change things up just because he can and I see no reason why his old engine shouldn't continue on as if it never left the farm!
