I nuttered mine back when I was still running the carter and never looked back. Not only did it run better, but it cleaned up the engine compartment of so much stuff including wires and lines.
I understand some people are into "restoring" their CJs, which in this case would be understandable to try and get all the stock stuff operational. But as far as a DD, a weekend driver, or a trail rig.. I think nutter is the way to go.
