Im assuming that is a 3speed auto?Ok ill get some info on tuning the carb. Its a Weber k551 from quadratec. It runs awesome down the road as is, about 1300 rpm at 55. But I hope with this great information and a Nutter bypass I should be even better
Im thinking the regulator will help a lot; and then if you want to check for the jets.Yeah. Im headed to the parts store for a pressure regulator and some jets and a new inline fuel filter now. Im hoping to see something over the 15 I was getting while it was blowing black smoke and leaking all over the place
Thats what the calculator said using the standard equipment axle ratio of 3.55I just got back from the parts store with the regulator plugs and filter. When I went to leave the Jeep wouldn't fire. First time I've ever had that happen. I tried for about 5 minutes with no luck. Finally put it in neutral and rolled it down the hill and it fired up, blew a big cloud of smoke and the whole way home the tach said 1800-2000 @ 55
What I mean is, it could even be the new carb; like sticky float or needle and seat issue. Float may not be set right even, just because it is a 'new' carb does not mean it will be free from issues. its also possible your fuel pump picked up something from the tank and is playing havoc on the filter or carb.The plugs looked to be fine ..just a little brown on the end. The carb is a brand new one and I had it installed and tuned but im not sure where to go next because it just dies randomly. I really don't want to waste money replacing stuff that doesn't need to be. The MPG has gone up to 12 though
I would lean towards a fuel issue then. Seafoam can clean out the goo, but if there is something like rust in the tank then the filter could be getting clogged (or some such) and seafoam wouldnt be a help.It will sputter real quickly and die like it runs out of gas but as soon as I put it in neutral and turn the key it will fire back up while its still rolling. It has only happened a couple times this week and the carb has been on about 3 weeks. I ran seafoam through the tank about a week before I changed carbs if that could have made a difference.
Actually, you just need a good old school mechanic.Nah you're not at all. Any help I can get is greatly appreciated. I just wish that there was a decent Jeep place around here I could take it to.
