Jeep had some intake manifold bolts that felt kind of loose and the one closest to cab at rear bottom of engine looks like it came all the way out and got lost........Vaccum was checked it went up to about 21........And I could hear the carb sucking air into it. I didn't hear this before. I guess all the air was being sucked into the manifold. I'm going to go over the manifold again under better cicumstances or pay a shop to replace gasket.
Your words, just together
Get that missing bolt replaced
No need to replace the gasket - get the bolts torqued correctly an check them again in 1000 miles
Seemed like a total pita to get to some of those bolts.
It is - I had to use a universal joint on my torque wrench to get them all
After tightening them down I tried to start jeep at timing 8 degrees. Would not start without really revving up engine. I could give throttle to keep it running. Tried to up idle speed on accelerator linkage adjustment. Didn't seem to help much. I only turned it a full turn or so before I stopped. I drove it though and seemed strong and a little more peppy.
So at this point you've done the things I've mentioned earlier?
Eventually it stumbled but could of been me letting to far off the throttle or not shifting to neutral fast enough to slow down and keep rooms high enough. Once I have them not leaking 100%.
Its completely possible for it to stumble again - give it more drive time
Can someone explain to me like I'm five how to properly adjust the carb
Best way to do that is have experienced help show you
Unless there's a video online to explain it
Gosh I hope this is going to fix it. Maybe the leak was so gradual I just assumed it was my jeep carb getting more and more "tired"
Thanks again. I'm so happy to have made any progress tonight I'm calling it quits for now while I'm on a high note.
