87 wrangler fuel lines..

Put a 350 in my 87 YJ last year.. Also put an inline fuel pump. When I try to climb steep hills it dies like it ran out of gas unless I throttle up and ride the clutch while I'm climbing.. And it won't start till I get it back on somewhat level ground again. I recently put and eldbrock off road carb on to fix the problem. Well it didn't help... Ive tried new fuel pump. Any suggestions?

Ck the float level in the carb. Sounds like you are flooding at an extreme angle. You can try setting the level a little lower than spec.

Ditch the carb and put a tbi set up on it. Super simple to wire up and abundant at the bone yard. I always had those issues carbed on my SBC. Went FI and couldn't be happier.

So just any TBI of a Chevy 350 will work?

Yeah they all work. You may have to mill out the 4 center bolt holes on the intake manifold. They are a different angle than carbed. I just used a drill or dremel to do it. Pretty straight forward.

Ok.. So while I have trouble wiring the computer in? Do you have a link or something I could look at?

Service manuals for the donor helps so you can deadhead what isn't needed and clean up any unused wires. Once it's running and you're happy unpin them and it's even cleaner. Did a LT1 swap in a 76 chevy truck turned out real clean

Unpin everything I'm not using?

All of the wires that you determine you are not going to use you can "unpin" that is remove from the junction block so the wire is totally gone.

Figure out what you are going to pull it from. Get a Haynes manual or probably available on Google all the wiring diagrams.
