89 YJ 258 engine misfiring

I Need Help!!!!
I Purchased A 1989 Wrangler W/258 5 Speed Trans. The Vehicle Was Sitting For 10 Years. I First Put A Fuel Pump On It Ran 4 A Short Time Befor It Misfired. Next Was Tune Up, Then Distributor And Coil Then Computer. I Was Told By Someone That The Carbs On That Year Had Problems So I Put A Weber 38cfm Carb. Runs Good Until It Gets Hot And Runs For A While Then It Misfires. I Pluged A New Ignition Module In To See If That Was It, No Luck I Dont Know What Else To Do Or Replace. Ive Had The Jeep For A Year (toy/hobbie) Playing With It But Its Really Getting Old!! Thanks Mike

Did you consider cat or exhaust problems? How about feul delivery? Did you change filters? How about jet sizes for Weber carb, if higher mileage 38 could be too much fuel.
