Actually yesterday, but..... After doing a Nutter while chasing down the mysterious bad idle/dying at stop signs, and making the worst exhaust smell I've ever smelled from a gas engine I spotted the telltale fuel dribble in one side of the venturi cluster. Fixed the clogged idle fuel pickup tubes and reamed them to .030 while I was at it. Couldn't get the idle set rich enough with the IAC needles set in the mid position. So I extended them out to almost full extension and blocked them there with aluminum foil packed in behind the stepper plate.

Much much better at idle, accelerating, and any steady speed.

I guess I'll take the time to track down the fuel smell in the cab or maybe start the CJ dash swap.
Check your gas tank.. I bet you will see a pin hole

Kudos!! You found yourself a very nice looking YJ and hopefully in great condition. Keep it maintained and it should last a very long time.

Actually that is exactly what I was going to do but then I found them on quadratec for a total of $24 and decided it would be cool to get new ones. Can't wait to put them on!

Thanks a lot! Yeah I love it. It runs, sounds, and looks great. I plan to keep it for a long time. I'm slowly replacing small things as I can and it's really starting to come together.

When you say "extended them out" you mean deeper into the carb toward the seat, away from the stepper motor?

I crawled under the front end before work and used my Jeep key to scrape all the crud of the front axle so I could read the gear ratio...3.54.

Thanks for the tip. I've been keeping an eye on it since I replaced the vent valves. I know it was leaking from there, but haven't seen a leak since I replaced them. The previous owner had cut an access panel in the tub so at least I didn't have to drop the tank. I looked under the Jeep yesterday and noticed where the tailpipe attaches to the rear of the muffler is completely loose. I'm thinking that with the combination of not having the rear access panel above the gas tank completely sealed up, I may be getting exhaust fumes into the cab.

Bought a dana 30 lube locker gasket today, 20 bucks. Going to give it a try. I like the idea that it should be reusable, so we will see how it does over time, if it holds up.

Love the LubeLocker gaskets! I've got them on both diffs. No seepage at all!
