Explains why in the last few weeks it ran, when I went over a sharp bump in the road, it would run like it had a partial blockage in the intake. Then the next time I started it, it was fine till I hit a sharp bump again.
I took the carb apart a bit today and cleaned the needle and seat. When I started it this time, it purrs like a new engine. I have to get a battery and borrow a timing light next. Then flush the brake fluid, it looks pretty brown.
Next project: the green jeep lost the front pinion bearings the day before Thanksgiving. I have to pull the axle housing to drop it off to get fixed. While I have it apart, I need to redrill the disk brake caliper brackets to index them correctly on my drum brake knuckles.
