i have an 82 cj-5 and recently had someone rebuild the carb, now everytime i try to climb the smallest hill, the jeep loads up and stalls, it has no problem going down anyting or even if i back up a hill, but if the nose is higher than the tail, it dies. Does anyone know what might be causing this, a stuck or cracked float maybe. Also its been having a hard time running at higher speeds,while its in 3rd or 4th and i try to accelerate hard, the jeep just blubers and doesnt accelerate. Why is this, any suggestions would be helpfull. Thanks
Almost positive that the float is not adjusted properly. The level is too high causing flooding on the slightest gragdation.

If you're not living on the edge...
you're taking up too much space.
I had same problem with mine. The fix it to adjust floats. I believe the book says quarter inch below for the floats, however, this is terrible setting if you offroad steep hills. I set mine at a little over 3/8s below and it help tons. Might be able to do a hair more, but I was worried about starving it at high speeds wide open. It has no prolonged wide open throttle problems where it is now.
