I'll try that, thanks.
I would NEVER run a fuel line from an old gas tank into a carb!! One spec of crud gets into the carb and that spec of crap will drive you nuts.

Just for the heck of it tap the side of the carb a few times with the butt end of a screwdriver handle. Your floats may be stuck closed so you are not getting any fuel.

And all carbs need to be adjusted when installed

It stays running with the carb choke open. Once closed, it dies. Is that a symptom of a fuel problem?

It is supposed to run with the choke in the (mostly) open position.

I see. But after pressing the gas, it closes and dies.

Read post #43 there is no magical wand to wave over this carb you have to check all the settings.

When he revved it, the choke stayed open. When I rev mine, it closes.

Edit: Watched his other carb video and the choke only closed a tab bit after revving it. Mine closes all the way and dies. Also, I noticed his opens up slowly. Mine does not. Not sure if this is helpful info or not.

Isn't your choke pull of vacuum operated? Check that their is vacuum and that the pull off works when you apply vacuum.

There are a bunch more videos available on Youtube. Like I stated earlier you need to start at the beginning with the carburetor adjustments.

Mades it run out of air when the choke closes which is why it's stalling out. Somethings not right with that choke.

How can I tune the carb with a vacuum gauge if the jeep doesn't run?

Someone probably messed with the fuel and air adjusting screws. You have to start at a certain point and work from there. Re-read what I posted earlier the thread I found here in JF telling you how to do that. In most cases to fine tune the carb a vacuum gauge is used.

To me it sounds like your choke thermostat isn't working or the vacuum isn't connected right or maybe even a vacuum leak
