I've actually avoided touching the choke as much as possible. It IS supposed to be pre-set for me (it's a fully manual one). I've tried starting the jeep with the choke plate manually closed, tho, and got nothing.

Have you used carb cleaner at the intake mounting of the adapter, throttle linkage of the carb, all the vacuum connections, including that hole? What have you done with the charcoal canister? Are all the different vacuum points on the intake manifold and exhaust manifold used or sufficiently blocked? Spray carb cleaner.

Lastly, keep in mind that there could be a problem with the carb!!!!!! I went through two carbs from the ebay guy before I gave up on what was a never ending battle with vacuum problems. First carb after one month of back and forth emails he sent a replacement. After problems with the second one he stopped responding to my emails. Got one from an econoline van with a 351 from car quest and its is perfect!!!!!!!

Seriously? The only reason I went with him is to have some kind of guarantee that I'm buying a functional item...

I've plugged everything everywhere that I can find. I plugged the urge signal to the canister but some of it needs to be left open to let it vent, no? Either way, the rest of the EGR (the CTO, the actual switch, etc, are all capped off completely).

I'm assuming the carb is functional because I HAVE had it running before I nuttered.

Just wondering

Not giving the name of the guy, Did you get it from a guy from Colorado Springs, Co.? I have been trying to reach him because my carb was missing the electric choke. I have not had any luck reaching him.

yeah, the same guy. The few times I've talked to him (via email) he's seemed very knowledgeable. I'm still operating on the assumption that its just my own fault here…

first thing tomorrow morning, I'm going to check on that damn canister (I don't believe its the problem but what do I know…) and all of the vac hoses again. I have to be missing something obvious. maybe I'll even de-nutter it… tho that doesn't really make any sense to me.

so what should the situation at the canister be, if I'm not using my EGR?

cap everything except to the fuel tank? I'm assuming there needs to be some sort of outlet left, right?

followup: I was gone for a while travelling so I didn't have much time to work on this. however, I got some help on another thread here on statically timing the jeep with a protractor. I set the distributor to 20 degrees from TDC (which translates to 10 at the crank) and after a bit of harassment it started right up and held an idle. mildly irregular (next thing to figure outů) but its running!

thanks a lot for all the help guys!

I'd go with electric choke. Easy to adjust and once set you don't have to do anything else.
