    Loping - another WAG

    Did you add a fuel filter to the setup? All of the rebuild dirt may have finally accumulated in there.

    Oh, by the way - tell us about Hank. We've not seen or heard from him for a while. How is that baby doing?

    turns out imay have caused this, gasket leak plagued me for longest time and i made a new gasket for carb and use a sealant, the sealant is beleived t have broken loose?? Or somehow affected the float,, idles great, can ramp up in drive but drive it and soon it will start loping bad

    From middle of may, 2016 to today

    001.jpg 002.jpg 004.jpg 006.jpg

    broke down and ordered a new carb, the original one has problems, no way can tighten the top on it, the threads are stripped, going to get a helicoil kit 10/24 to re thread it. 29.00 comes with coils, taps and die and tool to install. if this works then i will send it in for rebuild (factory rebuild).... if i can not repair threads then only out 29.00

    here is new one

    got the adapter for air cleaner also

    wHAT A DIFFERENCE THIS NEW CARB MADE......
    Really quite amazing, still plan on heli coil repair to the original carb, once i have good threads am going to send it in for "SHOWROOM QUALITY" repair/rebuild from Kaiser.
    only thing that pissed me off today was the fact that the darn valve cover gasket gave up the ghost

    holy speedometer batman.. Said what the hell took it out on main highway NC24 and opened it up. now my speedometer only goes to 60mph.. i pinned it?? Yaeah pinned the sucker, ran smooth no vibrations, no noises (to speak of) oil pressure great, temp 170, battery indicator in the green solid. Did I stay there, hell not, and that probably will be my only time at 60mph in a open jeep. really not that comfortable or else i am a big chicken, someof both maybe. one thing i liked is at lower speeds could actually let go of steering wheel and it tracked

    that new carb, wow great investment

    We're also getting smarter as we get older... take credit for that too.

    It's nice when you invest in something and you get an immediate and spectacular payoff from it. Congratulations.

    Tell us about Hank .... is he Jeep broken yet?
