See my profile and other CJ 5 and CJ 7 answers I have given.
Assuming you are accurate with your nomenclature.
There may be "Obvious" issues, such as a missing Carburator return spring....or a throttle cable binding in its outer shroud.
I would have to probably attribute your problem to the carburator---choke---choke "high idle" (warm-up steps), linkage binding, or maybe just simple adjustments.
We would have to perform tests to figure out exactly the problem...I may can assist you there also.
I really do not want to hit you with an entire manual of what ifs----for this has already been done by the people at "Chilton" and "Haynes" repair manuals.
I will step by step try to help you find the problem in an orderly--EZ--fashion to avoid me hunting and pecking ruthlessly for days, "Stabbing" at EVERY possiblity and giving a fix for each.
I can send pics of some of this stuff
I need accurate Descriptions or pics to see what we are starting with.
This is a 1983 BBD--note stepper motor on rear
This is a 1979 BBD (no stepper) does yours have linkage just like whats above the orange pocket screwdriver?
