I recently acquired a '77 cj7 through trade. Jeep has a 4.2L v6, 258. Rebuilt engine approx 11000 mi ago. Jeep sat for a yr, but had a new carb put on just after sitting for a while. (Guess he didn't run it after putting new carb on. Carb is a carter 2bbl, remanned. Jeep will fire, idle then die. If I hit the throttle while idle, seems as if it floods out. Enough to where it's dripping fuel. Took carb apart, cleaned it, cleaned the floats, can't tell if metering rod is bad or Wht. Anyone help? Please. Thanks.
