Re: stalling / vapor lock
Wow, I'm gonna feel strange here [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img], but I gotta disagree with CJDave's Moonguys. [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img]
You don't *need* the 3-position fuel filter. The stock mechanical fuel pump has a check valve in it, and the system will work fine with a regular ol' fuel filter in the line, and a disconnected return line. I've been running my weber'd YJ for about a year this way, and have done some hot summer wheelin' with no vapor lock problems. I did it to help the infamous "drainback into the tank" of the weber. I used a simple clear plastic fuel filter so I can see when it gets crappy, and it works great. If you do have vapor lock issues, you can get some heat tape/tubing/wrap stuff at most autoplaces or JC Whitney, and put it over the line going from the pump to the carb. I have not had to do this yet.
Your problem sounds like it could be a stuck linkage, a stuck float in the carb, a misadjusted or disconnected choke... etc. Does it blow black smoke when it does start?
I also have the weber instructions for the 32/36 scanned in, and can email you those if you're interested.
Just my opinion
