How to diagnose and repair a miss? - 77 CJ5 258 w/ 1bbl carb
So I've been helping my nephew work out a few issues with his 77 CJ5. When I got here it would not charge so we got that sorted out and replaced a gauge. Once that was done it was running great so he went ahead and changed out his worn our tires. Yesterday he took it out to run a few errands. When he left the store he was at he noticed that from the time he started it up it had a miss that hasn't been there before. As he drove the miss seemed to get a little bit worse. The way he described it - at lower acceleration it wold miss real bad but when he would get on it a little bit and get into the higher RPM's it would get better.
This jeep has the stock 1bbl carb and points style ignition. The carb was recently rebuilt by a mechanic and has worked great since. The plugs are not fouled and the plug wires are relatively new - what is the best way to diagnose what is causing this miss and fix it? Any help is greatly appreciated.
