    1979 Jeep CJ7, 258, TH350, NP208
    Howell fuel injection, header, HEI distributor, TH350, NP208, SOA lift with YJ springs in the front & GW springs in the Rear. AMC20 with G2 1 piece chromos trussed, Dana 30 with G2 chromos and 760x ujoints and MM Stainless Hubs, Geared 4.56. Tom Woods shafts, Metal cloaks, Caged, 37" Toyo MTs.
    My experience is significant loss of power on steep climbs, and If you stall on a steep climb or decent it is very hard to get it started because the floats in the bowl will not be level allowing the bowl to empty and therefore starving the carb of fuel. Invest in a good hand throttle cable like from Teraflex about$40, and have a good battery like the Odyssey Red top or Optima yellow top, or Northstar Marine battery so as to not drain your battery when trying to start in offcamber situations. Look into Howell TBI injection or Fitech TBI system for consistent fuel flow at all elevations and angles.
