help with Jeep. Not starting

I have an 88 YJ, carburetor, inline 6. Just the other day i went out to go to work and the Jeep would not start. It turns half way and acts like its about to start but nothing happens. I changed the fuel filter today. However same problem. Nothing changed. Need help from you guys/gals with Jeep wisdom

Maybe fuel lines clogged?

I suggest you post your question in the YJ area of the forum. You'll get more responses.

In the mean time . . .

As long as its turning over I would say its the fuel pump. I had to replace the pump on my YJ and haven't had a problem since.
