79 jeep cj7 258ci, carter bbd carb, I've owned this jeep for about a year now I tuned it up when I got it new plugs, wires, fuel filter, rebuilt carb. I've not added any mods to the engine, ignition or fuel system.
No camara atm but it's just the plain old stock cj7 under the hood.
How it runs right now? It is running just fine but when I get it off road after 3 or 4 hrs it just stalls can smell gas like it is flooded out. I stuffed a rag in the carb to cut the oxygen off and it sometimes starts back up for a little while and eventituly it stalls and will not restart with the juice I got left in the battery anyway. Twice now when I was getting towed out I would leave the clutch out in high gear and it would take 2 or 3 miles of the motor turning over before it would fire back up.
I do have the bacic tools and volt meter to work on my jeep and I have enough knowledge to locate any part that maybe failing.
