    Finally got fed up with the way my V6 with the DualJet ran, so I disassembled the carb and cleaned out all the trash. Went to NAPA, bought their P/N 2-5051 kit and reassembled. It is running so sweet now, and that is with the nominal settings:)
    Many thanks for the information I gleaned from this site, you guys are great!

    Great! You've got a running vehicle! So what are you going to do to it next?

    Drive it! R)
    I do have some steps to install so Wifey can get in since it is too high for her, and some minor steering issues to iron out. The Ross box needs a rebuild, and I'm considering a saggy, but I have to round up the parts and repair the frame horns first. I can't believe how well it runs now. :)

    Congrats... I fired up my 225 the other day for the first time since I have owned it... it was like it was singing me a song. I am sure the tub had tears of joy to be sitting on a chassis with a running motor as well R)

    Now to take the carb off and see if I can extract what appears to be a broken bolt...

    Congrats! The dualjet is a great carb on and off road. Basically a 2bbl version of the Q-jet. If you end up needing parts I've got a few spares I keep around just in case and I'm local to you. Nickmil

    Thanks Nick, I might take you up on that:) Most of my parts have come from Jeepguy. I think you know him. He's done right by me.
