Re: Stock CJ7 Computer replacement ??
If your tank is properly vented, then you should have no problems with air locking. The pump would dislodge any bubbles in the fuel.
You've got to start eliminating the known "wrongs". Start by fixing the carb gasket the right way. Vacuum leaks can cause an engine to run like crap. I don't know where you can get the gasket from, probably from a vehicle that had that carb stock. You could also make a gasket with the liquid gasket, just make sure it's rated for contact with fuel.
The TeamRush upgrade (TR) is pretty much a tuneup using Ford parts - cap, rotor, wires, coil, etc. Do a search and you'll find out the specifics. I don't know anything about HEI distributors, so I can't help you there.
On a sidenote, any reason you didn't do the tuneup yourself? I only take vehicles to mechanics if I've exhausted all other means - friends, the internet, books, etc. I can't justify paying someone to do something I could do myself for a lot less $$$.
