Okay this morning she tried to start but I had to put carb cleaner in her to start her ??? So now I have to figure that out any ideas on that would be helpful I'm going to search to see if I can find info but the good news is she's trying now and she's still running once I put the carb cleaner in her. I even started her back up she fired right up without the carb cleaner

It sounds like the float needle valve it's not sealing the bowl and you are leaking the fuel back from the carb.

I am not a carb guy but I know enough to be dangerous. There is a bunch of threads on the carter carb both in the CJ and YJ sections that cover it. The google search is your friend. This is the way to use google to narrow down the search:
http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f12/f...oogle-1003734/
And here is what you get:
https://www.google.com/search?hl=en&...le&safe=active

Please note that I was interested in the CJ and YJ sections so I removed the f12 on the end of the search and searched the entire forum. I hope it helps.
