Ok now I'm having another problem. The rear 2 barrels are dry and not getting fuel. I did not make any adjustments at all to this carb. Now the jeep runs like it starving for gas and won't stay running. I attached 2 pics. Please give me any info that you can. I'm at work now and would like to make it work to be able to get her home.

Sounds like you got some junk in there blocking fuel flow....carb cleaner and some elbow grease

Well, a four barrel carb uses two barrels most of the time. You have to really punch it for all four to kick in. So it's possible to run it in town without all getting gas. Having said that, it should be running better under normal conditions. Try letting it idle and try to see if there are any vacuum hoses off. Put your finger over any open ports and you may find your problem. You'll know immediately if it's a vacuum issue. That's where I typically have problems.
