1984 Carter BBD feedback type having problem
Need a direction to go in.. Bringing to life a 1984 CJ7 that has not been run in years... Did get a fuel flow from the tank to the carb (had to replace the fuel pump) and it will run for a moment when I put gas into the carb but it will stay running. I am working by myself so I tried a few different thing, one being putting a screwdriver in the carb throat to keep the lower butterfly open as it was staying shut or mostly shut. Anyhow, when I did that it roared to life and was running like a scared buffalo and I had to pull the screwdriver out. It died.
Needless to say, what is not right on this? Gummed up float/jets or dried out everything from sitting too long? New carb in order OR rebuild OR try to clean out something?
I see new Carter feedback carbs on Ebay for $180, maybe that would be easiest?
It only hurts while you're breathing..
