Drove to quick mart got a pop jeep would not start. Was running great when I stopped. Did BASIC TUN UP, no help, back fire through carb and tail pipe. Loud backfire through tailpipe after turning key off. Flooding of gas, gas coming out of top of carb, cought fire. New coil, distributer, roter button, wires, and new plugs gaped to 35. New fuel pump and inline filter, new ignition box (noticed plastic melting out of old). Nothing. Towed it home, pulled timing cover, slack in chain. Replaced timing gears and chain, set to tdc, pulled #1 plug checked with screw driver. Set distributor, finely got to fire but still having major flooding, and fuel coming out or carb. Bought new weber 32/36 carb installed, set throttle linkage, idel screw 2 turns out mixture screw 1 1/2 turns out. Started moter rough idel adjusted idel little more about 1/4 turn out, mixture screw out 1/8 out and started timing. Plugged vacuum advance set distributor tdc got good smooth idle, plugged dist vacuum back reved up timing rose to 8 on acceleration. Got in drove no power, no speed barley get to 35 mph, flat spots in pedal no constant acceleration. What now please help. Im at wits end.
