I'm trying to get my '80 CJ-7 up to par for the new requirements here in Texas (No attempted to inspect yet). I started with new plugs, wires, still idles rough (after it warms up). I adjusted the timing, and thought I had it until the engine got up to temp. As soon as it warmed up it was right back to sputtering, and idle dropped off again. I found the article in the tech section on cleaning the venturi valves(fuel drips only as I back off the trottle), and this will be my next step unless there are any other suggestions.
What's the association with the engine getting up to temp and the rough idle though if the choke is not engaged while cool?
If plugs, wires, timing, clean carb, doesn't keep the cloud of black smoke out of my rearview what's next?
