Welcome. Sounds like the previous owner forced the butterfly plates open as an attempt to compensate for no choke (I'm guessing). They should operate independently so just restore it.
Hang in there...

Gotta agree with kboles89---a common puddle shouldn't kill the jeep over and over and over. You got other problems. Siliconing and drilling a hole in the cap sounds like a recipe for disaster. I'm...

I am absolutely shocked that it's possible to run a holley 390cfm on a V6. Absolutely shocked. I've had Edel 1406's on V8's but unaware of this.

Anyway, google Holley. Edelbrock has a famous...

How true, how true. I bought mine 2 yrs ago in great (not exceptional) shape for 4,500 which I talked down to 4,300 (not my finest moment!). Had 69XXX miles on it. As anyone, I put a lot of time and...

I'm surprised someone paid 4,800 for it. No disrespect at all--the opposite--congrats. Despite mint interior, I follow the jeep market sometimes, and see similar rigs with less miles go for 3500-4000...

A teardown and rebuild with basically 0 miles is a game-changer, pricewise. The French Trans/TC is a stock deal, and on second thought, might be desireable especially to a purist.
But because of the...

I've had this squeal, under load, for a year and got rid of it last weekend.
Imagine my relief.
I was lucky: my distributor cap was loose and whistling all dizzy noise out of it.

Good luck to you. I never went into the dizzy hole with a screwdriver to 'set the oil pump gear slot' screw to 3 o clock before, nor ever heard of it. Like I said, my Haynes manual calls this a...

Could it be as simple as you took on water in the transmission through the tranny fill hole? You said it was always exposed (no dipstick).

In a dizzy swap your #1 piston has to be TDC. You know this and said it in your first post. These 2 statements are incompatible: "The cap is not marked anywhere with a #1. Firing order is correct."

If you can jump it via solenoid/starter and you have new ignition switch, that's a good start. But you are jumping from starter to batt. Grounds would be, naturally, off battery, off solenoid, off...
