lynn The carb is a Carter BBD.

You need to search on two fixes for this carb:

Nutter Bypass, that will eliminate a portion of the computer control for the carb,
and
Drilling out the BBD idle tubes.
These tubes are too small and clog easily. There is a method telling you how to drill them out for improved idle performance.

Info on the Nutter can be found here:
Jeep Tech Engines

I have a 84 cj7 that Ive owned since new. The carter carb. was junk from day one. Under 1000 rpms it would stall. I took it to the dealer a couple of times and they adjusted the idle which did absolutley nothing. I rebuilt it a couple of times and it didnt fix it. I found out later that its a poor design on the carb. I did find a repair online for it but never tried it. I put the mopar fuel injection on it.
