Engine Mechanical problem
1986 Jeep CJ7 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 171363 miles
My 86 CJ7 has 171K miles, but the engine was completely rebuilt at 169K, so it basically has about 2000 miles on a new engine. The problem: I cannot get the Jeep to start, no fuel is getting to the carb. If I pour gas into the carb, fires right up. I checked the line between the carb and fuel filter and fuel filter to fuel pump, both are clear. I replaced both the fuel pump and fuel filter. If I put gas in the carb to turn the engine for a few seconds and disconnect the fuel line before the fuel filter, no fuel comes out. Assuming the brand new pump works, I guess the fuel line from the tank is clogged? I have over 10 gals of fuel in the tank, any ideas about what is going on or how to handle it? Thanks!
