Engine Mechanical problem
1980 Jeep Laredo V8 Four Wheel Drive Manual

I am asking for help please 1980 cj 7 304 v8 new coil, icm, wires spark plug cap rotor k & n air filter new fuel filter and fuel pump. The problem started about 2 months ago. After good warm up drove 5 miles jeep stalled. Restarted ran fine until I got home. Then no problems for a couple of days then at the same exact spot from home it did it again and I had a bad time trying to start. Finally after the engine was cool and poured gas down the throttle body she started and got me home with alot of backfires and a few stalls. Intake manifold bolts and carb were a little loose not much so I tightened them down. Now engine wants to fire but wont catch. Starts a little then dies. Good spark good fuel vacum hoses ok. HELP the sun is out and I cant drive my convertable cj and get dirty. THE HILLS ARE CALLING. Thanks in advance for any input.

Have you checked fuel pump pressure?
