Is there any easy fix like this for the 1 barrel on my '79 258. The accelerator pump port just sits there and drips at idle. When she gets warmed up she loads up, and starts terrible. My other option is a Weber conversion.

My 258 has plenty of power for me. If I was to get a V8 I would definetly want power steering. I'm 6'3" and have a full cage in my CJ5 and I have room. It's no Suburban but I love it.

I have a CJ5 but I wish I could have found a good CJ7. I would go with the 304, 304's put out just as much torque as 350's and are cheaper. And also go with a 4spd. As for the price, haggle with the guy.
good luck!

Well I performed the procedure that you recommended. I drilled out both of the long copper tubes that go down through the venturi. Is this all you did?

That's all I did. You might look real close to make sure that you don't leave any little burrs. You can remove them with a fine emery board. Let me know if it worked for you.

It seemed to help a lot. I adjusted my idle down and it seemed to stay running much better. I think there is some bad gas in it though. It hasn't been driven much lately and has had to sit outside a little. Probably drew a little moisture. I plan to drive it as much as possible this week so we will see by the end of the week how things are going. Thanks again for your help.

If I could do it again, I would try to find a 1986 CJ7. This year they used the Dana 300 transfer case, and Dana 44 axles from the factory.

i would look for an 86 cj7 with the optional dana 44.
the 304 doesnt really overpower the 258 and from what ive heard the i-6 is more reliable
rust is a big problem with the cj so try to find one thats relatively clean
