UPDATE:

I took a look at my jeep today and got it running. There were a few gas leaks right off (fixed temporarily through tightening the rubber lines) but other than that no other major problems.

It purred like a kitten and I drove it through the backyard.

I'd like to get a new carb on it though as the choke has gone completely and I'm using a manual choke my old man rigged up.

Still working on removing the upholstery and all that froo froo civilian crap.
