I believe (from memory) that what you've described is correct.

Another carb lover here too! I know they're not "better", but I feel like it suits the character of the vehicle better.

I don't think I'd enjoy driving it so much if it wasn't so stubborn at times...

To add my 2 cents - the best thing for MPG I did on my 1991 Grand Wagoneer was reinstating some of the factory vacuum junk. I spent a long time tuning the carb, plus sorting out the EGR.

Oh that's awesome news.

Did you use the Mayo Clinic in Phoenix? My Aunt from California had a liver transplant there earlier this year, and she couldn't rate them highly enough.

A second vote here for rebuilding the stocker!
