having trouble starting up in the morning

Ive got a 6 cyl 1987 wrangler, carburator.

It wont start in the mornings, i've got to pump the gas in and out a few times as i am turning the key. It usually takes a few tries to get it running. However after its on it runs fine. I can turn it off and it'll start right up throughout the day. Any ideas?

It's been a while since I messed with carbs, but I would guess the needle valve or float has gone bad allowing the bowl to empty out over night. If ya haven't done a rebuild, I would guess it would be time after almost 24 years

yeah that sounds about right. but do you think it could be the spring? and is there a way of properly diagnosing the problem- besides taking it to the shop lol.
