Re: Hard startup..
sorry for the late reply.
The manifold heater switch doesn't have any wires going to it.I assuming this is because it had an engine fire in its past life, and the original carburetor was replaced with another carb (non computer controlled) and non of the sensors are hooked up.
I also believe it is used with an electric choke, but I have the manual choke now.
I could not get the thermo-electric choke unless it was warm to work at all, so I would prefer not to go back to it.
It is getting plenty of gas in each spray.
The plugs were not wet with gas.
Its not really hard starting, just hard to start up.
Could it be possible that gas is flowing back to the gas tank?
I discussed it with my dad, and he said that it sounds like the gas may be flowing back to the gas tank(he said usually diesels have check valves, but didn't know about jeeps).
Anything else you woudl like me to try?Hook up?
