Make sure you clean the U shaped piece of gas line between the filter and carb. It can hold an amazing amount of crud. You also need 2 wrenches when putting this line back on. One to hold the brass fitting from moving because it is the seat for the float needle. If it shifts when tightening on the gas line. The float level will go off.
Also be sure the base plate has the notches up. These control the manifold vacuum.
I personally set the vacuum piston gap to 42 thou with 50 being full lean and I think it is 25 being full rich. This is for high speed running. I get up to 500 km per tank on both my 86 CJ7 BBD and my 89 YJ renegade BBD.
