[quote="jmcmahan"]1980 Jeep CJ7 V8 Four Wheel Drive Manual 125000 miles
I have a 1980 CJ-7 Jeep with a Mortorcraft 2100D 2bbl carb on it witch was leaking gas from the power valve and accelerator pump diaphram. But the Jeep started the first time everytime. I had it rebuilt over the weekend and now its not leaking from the previous spots but it is leaking from 2 other spots. The real problem is I now have to pump the peddle about 15 times then hold the peddle down to the floor for it to start. I would just like to know if I can fix this without taking it back to the shop.
I took the jeep back to the shop and it is now not leaking at all but still cannot get it to start right. I have to pump the gas 10-15 times then turn the key. I think some how the gas in the float bowl is draining out and the jeep won't start until it fills back up with gas but I am not sure I would have to take the top of the carb off and look but if any of you have any idea what is going on I would appiciate your help. Thanks.
