1975 Jeep CJ5 Restoration

JUst thought I'd post my progress on my jeep as I go, it's a 1975 CJ5 that I picked up a few weeks ago. I've just been tinkering on it to get it running right and cleaning it all up as I go, probably won't do anything crazy with it, just having fun on the weekends working on something new. Anyways here's what I'm starting with:

I was having an issue with it priming in them morning, initially thought the tank had drained all the way out, but after dropping the fuel tank, and checking everything out I ended up just changing fuel lines out... then I got into the carb. This jeep has the 232 6cylinder engine which came with a little single barrel Carter carb, really simple to work on, more pictures...
