engine racing

since wheeling this afternoon my jeep's engine has been racing I hit quite a few bumps and was a whole lot rougher than normal, what might have shaken loose to cause this?

Re: engine racing

Is this on your M38A1? Is it stock? We're not mind readers as to what you have.

Re: engine racing

1. Check the linkages,
2. To make sure everyone's returning to rest at idle.
3. Those linkages and cables have to,
4. Move freely.
5. Look in the Carb throat,
6. Is the butterfly valve returning to rest?
7. Is the choke stuck?
