Last I knew GRONK was also still active in the military, so that could be a factor as well.

Y'all sure know how to make a girl feel bad lol. Though I have seen him on the Nest occasionally lately.

He's notoriously bad at keeping in touch. Emails and PM are not responded to timely..or at all. And he lists his number with the install instructions but I called multiple times and texted and left voicemails and never got a response.

The problem is I think he is getting quite a bit of business and it's just him...I don't think he had any help so he's getting flooded by Jeep and Eagle guys.

Well still hadn't heard from him, so I broke down and emailed him directly on 4/27. Got a response right then, sent money via PP then emailed him asking if he would let me know when he ships it out (and a tracking # if it happens to have one) and hadn't heard nothing from him since. So I am hoping it is on it's way :?
This seems to be a bigger pain than it should be.

Oh man! I hope I don't have any problems when I go to install. That scares me a bit Rafe.
I am NOT a carb person at all, I know absolutely ZILCH about them. I am just hoping I will understand the instructions once I am in there and dealing with everything.
Sucks that I learned how to jailbreak iPhones and other odd-nerdy things like that but when it comes to learning on cars I totally stink.
My biggest problem is I am not one of those read-the-instructions-and-be-able-to-do-it type people.
Instead I need to be shown how, a hands-on type learner.

Well good luck with the instructions...unless he's updated them they are written for the Jeep...though it's very very similar, it's also very lengthy. He goes in way more detail than I think he needed. Trying to explain how everything works. I just wanted some quick 1, 2, 3...type instructions.

I also broke my carb when I was bolting it down. Make sure to tighten loosely around each corner before torqueing it down. I think I was just tightening one side too far before doing the rest and I broke one of the ears of the base. Finished it up anyway, but was getting a vacuum leak there. He eventually sent me a new base at no cost.

I noticed that they were LONG and kinda confusing too.
I too would prefer the quick 1,2,3 type... a wham-bam-thank you-Ma'am deal. Wish there was a straight forward Eagle version. Have been reading up on other sites and have also been seeing that not every 2150 (or 2100) are exactly the same, so that confuses matters greatly.

Thanks, I will definitely keep that in mind.

Well I did get an email just shortly after posting this :? saying it was going to be mailed out today.

Awesome! Will do Casper. Thanks. Just remember I know ZILCH about carbs and I will probably be saying "doohickey-this" and "doohickey-that" :lol: So blonde or laymens terms will be best.
