So if your voltage is changing as you give it gas that leads me to believe electrical, are the wires corroded any where in this circuit?

Did you run a ground when you Nuttered?

One of the write ups I read for the nutter and juice box mentioned running an additional ground.

Also what is your voltage to your coil and after?

Lastly did you set your timing with the dist. Vac blocked or not?

You could try advancing your timing to 12 btdc different vehicles different timing.

I did add the ground wire, set the timing with vac blocked, and I will check my wires and connections hopefully today. I'll also get readings of the wires before n after coil.

Take a close look at choke pulloff. With someone in the jeep to restart, get under the hood with it cold. The choke is the top flap in carb. There is a vac. motor that "cracks" the choke when it is cold. When the motor is cold, it should crack the choke plate 1/8 to 1/4 inch, and have a set higher rpm. If all the probs are now cold, look at the choke.

You know, this makes sense. Since you have a manual choke, you might be preventing the pull off from opening the plate enough for air

Update: ok so I finally got to tinker with the jeep, cold start wasn't too bad being 30 degrees out. The choke pull is working just fine but I'm pretty sure I found the issue. Notice some smoke as the jeep was warming up and it was coming from intake/exhaust gasket; sprayed some starting fluid at the flanges and wahlah...the rpms dropped like crazy so I'm pretty sure that gasket it worn out and creating vacuum leak n exhaust leak. What do you guys think?

Has anybody ever used 2 gaskets for intake/ exhaust manifold? I've always seen one used

Yes I have two on mine one is exhaust the silver or shiny one the other one blue in my case was for intake the second one has to go on last or you will have an exhaust leak!

Hope that helps

Ok cool that's what I thought. I'll put it back together Wednesday. Had to drill n tap new hole for exhaust manifold since previous owner broke the bolt in the head. I'll update when I have it running!

Updated: finally got to finish up the jeep today. All went together great. Wasn't cold today to check cold starts but with the jeep running, no leaks anywhere and throttle response is awesome. Didn't really notice an power different but it's definitely running good.
