few questions: does it cut out while your driving or while it just sitting? two issues I had with my CJ carter were clogged metering tubes(looked like two fangs sticking down) had to clean them with a very thin needle.. the other issue was related to vacumme leaks.. try a very light application of soapy water an see if anything starts to bubble.. one line at a time. if it bubbles up that is a leak..

I never got my original carter to work well. I tried adjusting a new float a bunch of times and never could get it just right, went with the old one. The biggest improvement I got out of it was by soaking it in carb cleaner for a couple days. Was working fairly well until the (brand new practically) needle valve started sticking, and then I gave up and put an edelbrock in it. An aftermarket carb and an HEI conversion are both well worth it (the HEI has paid for itself in gas a few times over by now I'm sure, HUGE increase in MPG)

Holley makes both 2BBL and 1BBL carbs that will fit depending on which intake you have. I don't think edelbrock ever made a 1BBL that will bolt up to the 1BBL "diamond shaped" intake ports, but they do (or did) make a 2BBL that will bolt up to the rectangular 2BBL intake. If your primary consideration is bolt up compatibility, look at Holleys

Holley carbs are generally more tolerant of driving off camber. Only reason I use edelbrocks is because I "grew up" with em (I'm a reformed muscle car guy) and I can rebuild one in short order without taking it off the engine. they are retard simple and easy to tweak.
