i went through hell to get a carb that worked. Advanced Auto sold me a bad carb. and i rebuilt 2 others.. no i got a good carb. but my jeep wont start. it keeps flooding. is there something i need to know when installing a carb that i am just oblivious to? PLEASE HELP! its getting warm here in KY and my friend took the top off his YJ, i am so jealous! I WANT MY JEEP!

we drove through our malls parking lot last nite and there was a meeting of lowered trucks. i could only think of the things i could have done if i had my jeep.. as u can see i am having withdrawels!

Might try the air valve thingy being jammed shut... thus starving it of air... as a first check... the oil and crap that the PCV gives to the carb helped jam mine shut some time ago... and when your in the jeep you can't tell if its opening or not... i jammed a twist tie in it... and started it ... then pulled it out... easy. But later lubed it and freed it up.

Does it have an electric or manual choke? If it is electric sometimes people forget to hook the wire back up. Also check to make sure all your linkages are hooked up... seems obvious but it happens. Then try setting the choke... If it is a NEW carb it should have no problems starting. If it is a USED, new carb there may be problems with it.....

It is a Carter 1bbl with an electric choke.. REMANUFACTURED.. my prob. with starting was my spark plugs.. they got so drenched with gas they went bad. replaced them and now she starts.. when the engine isnt hot. i think my starter is kicking out now. it gives a wierd humming noise and wont let the engine turn over, when its hot. and when i stop for a stop sign my engine wants to die!? i am taking it to a mechanic ..
