CJ wont idle, drives fine but dies at a stop...
Like it says above. It dies every time I stop or any time I try to let it idle. It was running great before I took it out on a big 4 day wheeling trip, it got rode pretty hard and halfway through the trip it started doing this. During the trip I did lose my muffler, and about an hour later I could not keep the engine on with the clutch pushed in without revving the engine to keep it from dying. Probably unrelated but I thought I would mention it.
I have a MC2100 carb and the same thing happened to me with my Ford years ago after I got the engine all muddy. I cleaned out the carb with a can of carb cleaner and it was fine again for years. I figured I probably got some dirt in there this time too but it wont clean out this time so I thought it might be something different.
If anyone has any suggestions about what this might be I would love to hear them and get this little issue fixed so I can hit the trail this month. Jeep has HEI dizzy, MC 2100 carb and I think the rest of the engine is stock.
