?Anyone know of either a replacement carb or a bypass for the electronics on a carbureted 3.9? I know that they have one for '80's carbed Jeeps called a "nutter bypass".

I have a 500 cfm Holley 2bbl on my Dakota 3.9 V6.It functions fine,the electronic distributor also is working.The thing starts instantly,has way more pep,the mpg went from 10-15 to17 t0 20.I also have a 1 inlet 2 outlet muffler and 2 tailpipes and no converter.The rear tires are oversized slightly so the truck is actually getting better mpg than I stated,somewhat.Next comes the electric fan and 180 thermostat.Goal is 25 mpg at 55 mph,beginning to look possible.I am gonna do 1 more jet change,but I kinda think I will end up back where I am.No.66 Holley jets.
