Re: Jeep dies on sudden movement
No ground problem...just float. A few things to check.
First..Pull the top of the carb off. It's not too hard..and you can do it on the vehicle.
1. Check the float level. The gas level should be apx 1/4" from the top of the bowl...basically, the float should be about level. When I am going up into the mountains, I will sometimes drop my float level down just a fraction to reduce the flooding problem on hills.
2. Make sure that you have the U-shaped shield around the needle valve. It helps reduce the sloshing (sp?).
3. Make sure you have the right fuel filter installed. It contains a bypass (the second smaller outlet tube) to rout the unused gas back to the tank. If you don't have it, then you will have more pressure on the needle and seat than it is designed for.
