    I have an 88 fj60. The vehicle is in decent running condition, but I was wondering if I put a weber carb on the motor, what benefits, if any would this bring. Currently the motor is untouched aside from the removal of the smog pump. If anybody out there has done this, would they do it again?

    your numbers do not add up.....'88 would be a 62.

    i would not weber it.
    i was a card holding member of the weber camp, till i got my 60 running.
    205450 miles all smog on except for the smog pump. it pulls harder than my 40 that has no smog, a weber 38, an hei and a header.

    You will gain nothing by installing a Weber.

    The money that could be spent on a Weber should be spent on a reputable Aisin rebuild - and making sure you have no manifold leaks.

    I would agree with 60wag. I just got my 60 back from the shop. I had emissions gone through, carb overhaul, including float, jets, and secondary and intake/ exhaust retorqued. It absolutly transformed my truck. I can't begin to express how much this made the difference.

    Total cost was right at $400.

    just my 2 cents.
