Just bought my first jeep

It's a 88' with a 93' engine with 161k on the dash it also has some vacuum pump on it that helps the engine start if its hard starting "it always works" I just don't know what it is when i flip the switch the battery turns on and it just starts right up i think its something to do with the choke it goes right into the intake manifold does anyone know what it might be and also there's a nest of wires for the harness are there any conversion harnesses?

Is Fuel passing through those lines???? That looks like a makeshift fuel pump setup !!!!!
Mabt the pump in the tank went bad , so some one rigged up a sucker pump for fuel delivery???????

it probably has an inline fuel pump outside the tank
the 88 was carb'd with a mechanical pump and they put the 93 fuel injection system in it
