Re: Help with my jeep!
What type carb do you have?
How old are all of those hoses? At the fuel pump, tank, fuel filter?
I only ask because because I was about to dig into the ignition every time Jackson's 304 would act up, but it was always sucking air... there was fuel just not much. It would light up but then bog down and die... really hard to start hot but then run fine cold (cold fuel pump was ok).
Replaced every fuel hose on the damn thing to include putting in a different fuel tank, went from a metal 15 gal. to a stupid 22 Ploy that took up 4" of ground clearence and the to a used AMC Ploy with new sending unit and filter. But never did to anything different to the ignition.
Your description of start, won't start sounds a bit like where we were for a bit.
Somewhere in the time frame above we pulled that 304 out and rebuilt it. After that a few bucks for a chunk of hose wasn't going to stop us.
BTW: It could be the ignition.
