RUNNING TO RICH AND STALLS GOING UPHILL

1985 Jeep CJ7

Engine Mechanical problem
1985 Jeep CJ7 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Manual 101000 miles

I bought a non-running jeep that sat for months. The distributor was about 90 degrees out and a lot of new parts were installed but it didn't run. I got it started and did a carb kit. It idles very well. It drives well on level or down hill grades. I believe it is either to rich or bad gas or both. How do I increase the air or decrease the fuel ratio. And why would it run fine except uphill. I adjusted the float a couple times.

Did you adjust the detent, or throttle valve cable?
