Did a little work to the jeep yesterday, installed a clear bowl fuel filter and a inline fuel pressure gauge up close to the carb. I also swapped fuel lines. Lemme explain fuel lines. On another thread a gentleman suggested using the
Return line as my primary fuel line to see if unrestricted flow would cure my "cutting out" issue. Well, it did!! The jeep has yet to "cut out" on me at all. Now I know that using the return line may not be the best fix, but it's working quite well so far. The gentleman who suggested the return line said that line should go all the way to the bottom of the tank. He was right. After some searching on the Internet for fuel sending units to see how they were made I came across one that was shown in an exploded view with the gas tank and in the bottom of said tank there was a small three sided raised area where the return line set into with what is called a stopper. So, return line swap was on.
So, here's where I'm at.
Had a fuel starving issue- fixed as of now
Had some nasty spark plugs-installed new Bosch platinum 4's
Running hot issue- swapped in a new 180* thermostat and a new electric fan
Thanks for info from everyone who replied to this thread or others I've started about this issue.
