  1. Good evening!! Been a while...working on fuel issues now. Starves out. Carb was supposed to have been rebuilt according to the old boy we bought it from. Going to check for a filter behind the carb inlet. What pressure range should the 2 barrel run at? Pulling the mechanical pump and converting to electric. Thanks in advance!!
  2. Hello, Moses. I found a couple of thing that may be contributing to the problem. - First, the balast resister is present on the fire wall, but had been removed from the circuit. > I will be wiring this back in/replacing the balast resistor. - Next, the coil is mounted tight to the front of the engine block. > I will need to fab up/find the proper coil mount to get the coil off of the engine surface. - Finally, the gas line is zip tied to the front of the coil, with ample space around it other than where it is tied to the coil. > Considering options and leaning towards replacing the rubber hose with a proper steel line from the fuel pump to the carburetor. Not knowing how long the Jeep had sat prior to us looking at and driving/riding in it, I decided to throw some Seafoam in the gas tank. I put a couple of Mike's on it, having one instance of it stalling again. This past evening, I started it up and let it idle a bit. I had a 9 mile drive to go in to a fund raiser with our Jeep Club, and the ride back home. Prior to leaving, I grabbed my dead blow mallet and tapped the carburetor, hoping to dislodge the float if it were sticking. I made it all the way into town, had dinner with the Club and drove home with no trouble. One additional factor is that the outside temperature was also down apx 10-12°. This along with the Seafoam and tapping beith the dead blow, are the only actual things having been done so far. I have attached a few more pictures for your review as well. The underbody shot is not the best, but does show that the rear differential is offset to the right to align with the transfer case. Thanks again...I will follow up with more as I work through the list! Have a great rest of the week and Labor Day weekend. Sincerely, Brad
  3. Thanks for the response, Moses. I believe this Jeep has had a great deal of mods done to it. I will take a look at the fuel line placement, as they have rubber running up from the mechanical fuel pump vs steel with fittings, and I know it's right near, if not tight to, the front of the block. I'll take a look at the coil as well...I'm not recalling a blast resister, but that may be remote located as well I believe. The coil itself is mounted directly to the front of the engine block as I recall. The fuel tank has been upgraded to poly and is located at the rear under the bed. The filler neck has been relocated to the passenger side, rear. I will see about getting a new cap, just to rule that out as well. After looking at these issues, if no success, I will pull the carb and check out the float to see if all is working proper. I did replace the plugs last night, albeit, they were unremarkable. I've not pulled the distributor cap off yet. I've been thinking of upgrading to an electronic/HEI distributor/system, just to eliminate issues from that direction. I will follow up with additional photos and info when I get back to the shed later today. Thanks again, greatly appreciated! Brad
  4. New to the Jeep family and picked up a '68 CJ5 Willys Overland. Needs a little work. 225 dauntless odd fire, SM 420 4-spd, Model 20 Spicer transfer case, Saturn overdrive, Dana 44 Jeep Wagoneer axles, 538 gears and Warren hubs. Current issue is that after it warms up, it stalls out. Sit for a few minutes and you can start back up and go another 1/4 mile or so before repeating the issue. A couple of thoughts that may be causing this.... mechanical fuel pump going bad, coil collapsing, distributor issue?? It does have the Rochester 2 jet, single barrel carburetor on with stock manifod. Thanks in advance for feedback.
