Finally got the 77 Wagoneer running, now what?
I've been banging my head and scouring this forum for answers for 6 months to get my 77' Wagoneer to start. Since I am new to this, I recently discovered "starter fluid" and gave that a try over the weekend. Sure enough after 6 months of not firing, the Jeep came back to life. To get to this point I had replaced the starter (later found out this was not necessary) and replaced the battery with a higher CCA. The fuel lines look great and the mechanical pump looks new (compared to the other parts).
What other maintenance items must I complete to have it dependable during the winter?
Now that I had it run a few times, it starts up without the help of starter fluid but it requires the manual choke to be open, even when the engine is cold. If I have it idling and close the choke, the engine stalls out. Potential problem?
