Angry I'm pulling my hair out

I started getting an irratic idle a few weeks ago so I replaced the fuel pump but nothing changed then the idle wouldn't even hold so I replaced all the vaccuums and still nothing (but keep in mind i can get it to hold an idle at start up it's kinda rough starting up but it'll hold yet the second I shift to 3rd and press the clutch it'll drop out it would back fire a lil ) then I did a thourough cleaning on the carb. it felt better after that yet still no idle after 3rd then I replaced the plugs and wires and ajusted the timing by ear it sounds better but still will drop out I can't figure this one out any help would be apreciated.

man, those carbs are nothin but trouble. i will say you can't adjust timing by ear though, you need to get out the timing light.

fuel injection was the best thing to ever happen to wranglers.

"The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president."

I've read that it could be the floats in the carb sticking if any one has any advice I would really apreciate it before I just rebuild the carb all the way.
