Hey guys, first post here. I've done a few searches and I realize I'm not the first to post on this issue but was looking for some more guidance.
First off, I have a 1989 YJ, 6 cylinder, with a Weber Carb.
Plugs, wires, and distributor cap < 1 year old.
New fuel pump and filter.
Just bought this Jeep and it doesn't like to start first thing in the morning. After the first start she will fire right up throughout the rest of the day. When I first got it the choke was loose and I tightened that up but it hasn't fixed the problem. I replaced the fuel pump and filter but that hasn't done the trick either.
When I go to start it, I have to crank it for about 15 seconds (if I only hit the gas once or twice) for it to start.
If I pump the gas pedal 5 times it will start right up, then immediately die. (Does the same when I only pump the pedal once or twice but much more briefly) If I then pump the gas pedal a few more times and crank it, it will start and run fine.
I am wondering if my fuel is draining all the way back to the tank and that is why it takes so long to start? Or do I have another issue? I read another post about installing a check valve from a BMW but was unable to find a post about part # for it. Or does the problem lie in the gas tank itself and the sending unit?

Any guidance would be appreciated. Thanks.
