Just got a cj5, throttle problem

I'm not new to jeeps, I've owned a lot of Cherokees, this is my first 1974 cj5.
It runs great, starts up normal idles great, but if I give it more than half throttle it wants to die. Maybe the carb is gummed up? It has a webber carb with a k&n plate and filter. Read something about a vacuum advance maybe.

Change fuel filter,ck fuel pump psi.
Ck carb float setting and your choke adjustment.
Also check for vacuum leaks.
Tighten ALL of the manifold nuts.
