DJ-3A Carter Carb Forms

• CATEGORIES: Documents This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

Matthew was kind enough to send along a scan he did of the YF2392s Carter Carburetor used on a variety of DJ-3As. This is Form 5170A. A later form, 5170D, features the YF2392sa version of the carb.

Carter-2392S-matthew-scan1 Carter-2392S-matthew-scan2

I’ll include here a comment from this discussion of these same carbs, which also includes the linkage issue I ran into, that was copied by Charles Tate from a now-non-working-thread from an old CJ-3Bpage discussion (that quoted Bruce Agan):

Hi Barry. As a DJ3A Enthusiast I have to limit my response to that carburetor only.

Quote from Bruce Agan (jeepsurreygala.com) and premier expert on DJ3A Dispatchers September 20, 2011 07:42 PM

“the dj has always used the YF carb. 1955-56 parts lists show both the YF 2392 & YF 738S & 738SA carbs used on the early DJs. the YF 738 carb was the original carb used on the 4-63, VJ-2, VJ-3 (Jeepster”

Quote from OLDTIME from Deriks CJ3B bulletin board

“The specifications for the 2392 S are not identical to the more commonly found Jeep YF carburetors.
That implies differences such as the main metering jets, the metering rods etc. ”

Those specifications can be seen on Carter form #’s 5170 and 5170d

The difference between yf2392s and 2392sa was likely going from a air bypass check ball an air bypass check needle.

As said Barry I know absolutely nothing about the earlier CJ3A carbureator per sey. What I ‘think’ is that the YF Series carburetor used on the DJ3A dispatcher had a larger throat bore.

IF SO, then we can refer back to this comment from KEN (OLDTIME)

“Larger diameter throat bore = decrease air velocity = increase of the air % to fuel % = lean fuel mix =
better operation at high altitude or burnt valves at designated altitude”

If all of the above is true then it might also be true that better operation doesn’t necessarily equate to more actual horsepower???

More information and my actual rebuilding of a yf2392s carburetor here along with some of the research quoted”

1964 Jeep News Volume 10 Number 7

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features • TAGS: This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

This end-of-year 1964 Jeep News Volume 10 Number 7 was expanded to twelve pages. The issue starts with some dealer news on page one. Page two reports on the success of Meyer hardtops and how demand forced an increase in production at Meyer Products, Inc. Dealers found them easier than most to install with less rattles while driving. On the lower left of page two, it’s noted that Jeep dealers often loaned jeeps to campaign committees of both parties. I didn’t know that happened.

Page three includes a story about Cold Spring, New York, ‘Jeep’ dealer William M. McAndrew and how his firm loaned 4WD vehicles to fire fighters during a hard-to-reach fire. On page three’s lower left is a rare XM-677 sighting, though much of it is blocked by Brazilian Army officers. Page four begins with a letter from Bruce Grantland, who wrote a review of the Wagoneer for Trailer Life Magazine (09/64). Page four also includes a pic from the “Kaiserama” exhibit, then located at the Kaiser center in Oakland, California. Page five has mostly dealer news, though a pic of some the 42 jeeps owned by the Nursery Company out of Azusa, California is included.

Pages six and seven share international news and pics. Page eight includes a photo of the Radio Patrol Club operated by the Keystone Automobile Club that traveled the Philadelphia metropolitan area helping folks in trouble. Page nine highlights some KJC military vehicle news. Pages ten and eleven shows a Gladiator Fire Truck, among other story snippets. Page twelve covers some Canadian jeep news.  It also includes a photo of an FC-150 pulling a big truck with a three-story-house as its cargo; the little jeep that could!

1964 Jeep News Volume 10 Number 6

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features, videos • TAGS: This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

Te eight-page 1964 Jeep News Volume 10 Number 6 begins with a record retail sales announcement. These revenue numbers were primarily driven by the three models shown at the bottom of page one, including the Tux Park CJ-5, the Wagonneer, and the Gladiator. Increasing numbers of dealers also helped. Page two mentioned how the golf partnership was already providing beneficial, with inquiries numbering in the hundreds arriving at dealers. Page three shows three of the new KJC-approved “ad mats” available for dealers to place in local newspapers.

Page four highlights a dealer in Ohio that tries to sell a Meyer plow with every jeep sale, claiming it isn’t that hard to do. Page five provides the results of a dealer contest. Page six shares the news of the National Search and Rescue group and their recent election. Page eight turns international, with pics and captions from around the world. On page eight you’ll find the results of Boulder, Colorado’s, 4th annual Jeep-O-Rama. The winner of a brand new CJ-5 was Donnie Beyer, whose father owned a jeep dealership. Pretty good for a 17-year-old kid! Lower on the page is a DJ-3A with an unusual door and top setup. Finally, on the lower right, is a fairly well-know pic of Barb Eden (right) and Shelley Fabares with a DJ-3A Surrey from the movie “Ride the Wild Surf” (see trailer at bottom).
