I don't think its a mechanical issue because I had it running pretty smooth before I ever even tried to get rid of the bog upon acceleration, then all these issues arose and here I am.... But I am not ruling anything out.... So I really appreciate your advice and I will try anything.
What worries me is the 1 1/4 out mixture screw..... thats the farthest in that it has ever had to be in...... I dont know why!!
For the time being forget the vacuum tubes. Of course a layout will be provided should you get to the point you need one. Vacuum routing (other than vacuum advance)is not part of the issue at this point.
I'm not sure anyone read this as was intended.
If after a thorough check on these things are behind and he still experiences the stall he might try to eliminate that with opening the throttle plate to the point of reading 2-3" of vacuum at the "S" port, without re-adjustment to the mixture. It would at least tell us if this symptom is related to an air leak or a restricted flow.
Please allow me to emphasize DO NOT RE-ADJUST the mixture screw once the throttle plate has been opened to the point that you read 2-3"Hg at the "S" port nipple. The idle speed will be what it is, not a concern at this point.
In other words find what you consider a lean best setting while the throttle plate is closed to the maximum that it can be set and still read zero vacuum then open the plate and give it a trial run with attempts to create hesitation and stalls.

If you experience either symptom pull the advance tube at the distributor and plug that tube for the return trip and report how either run worked out for you.
If you still experience hesitation or stalling after both runs back the initial timing down to 6* up to 8*BTDC (max) and retry the tests.
Ok, did the team rush. Was able to achieve a lean best idle at 1 1/4th turns out on the mixture screw, timing set to 8*. Drove it, still stalled. Turned the idle screw in until the S port read about 2-3 hg, then went and with two hard runs it did not stall on me. And the hesitation was not bad at all, almost non existent.
I found the lean best while the vacuum advance was attached, not unplugged. I have it disconnected and plugged while I adjust the timing, then connect it, then find the lean best, is that wrong?

The lean best setting as well as the trial run results are invalid.
Run tests will have to wait till tomorrow, but I did go out and re adjust baseline setting with vacuum advance disconnected. With the timing set to 10* I found the lean best idle to be 1 1/2 turns out on the mixture screw. With 1 1/2 turns in on the idle screw and zero vacuum from S port.
Ok, did the run tests. But When i got out there today i had to adjust the timing again, i put it to 8* and the mixture screw out 1 1/2 turns. Seems I have to re adjust everything every time I start the jeep up
Did the run tests, same results. Stalled, so I increased the idle till the S port read 2-3 hg then drove it and it did not stall, however watching the oil pressure I noticed it did dip.
Also, When it stalled on the first run test it took a moment for it to start back up and it chugged black smoke for a few seconds.
Another thing, Backing out of my drive, when I hit the breaks fairly quick the motor almost dies.....
