Confused . . .
Okay, so I have been attempted to fix up a 77 CJ7 that I just bought, and I'm a little green. I have replaced and or cleaned all the usual suspects. While I was working on it, a fuel line sprung a leak, it shouldn't be too difficult to replace, but it raised an interesting question to me. The problem I have been having is that after revving, it has been stalling, though, I can keep it alive, if I stay on the gas, also, when I start her up, I typically have to pump the gas several times. Now here is what I was confused about. The line that sprung a leak, comes from a fixture? on the bottom front bottom right side of the engine, though the fuel filter, into the carb. That line only leaks when I attempt to start the Jeep up (while turning the key). When I pump on the gas, gas spurts into the carb, but doesn't cause leakage there? Could improper flow in the former tube be causing the stalling, and hence why if I pump the gas it'll stay running? Thoughts? please and thank you.
