    Default Jeep dies when driving

    Got a problem, will start and run for about a 1/4 of a mile then dies. OK for me got a new fuel pump, fuel filter, MC 2100 carb (just put on), new coil, rotor, cap, dist. tree, new wires, plugs, and inigutoin moduel has been tested and is good. I have pulled the exhust and drove no differnce. Most of the time it will start right back up but some times it takes a bit of cranking to start. Any ideas????

    how old is the tank. could be corrosion in the tank that is coming the through the fuel line after running. also could be the fuel lines them selves are old and corroding and plugging up the jets in the carb. check to make sure the lines arent to close to the exhaust causing vapor lock.

    I figured it out a fuel like was shot and would fold over on its self. Replaced the rubber tube and she runs better than a deam. and for all I did she better....

    I'm glad you found the problem.

    So the MC2100 is working well? Did you find a newly rebuilt one, or find one in a junkyard?

    Got any install pics?

    Later, T.J.

    I bougth mine from the who sells them on ebay. Its great and with the team rush upgrade wow does it run like a dream and seem to have tons more power. I will get some pics up soon. The CD he sends with the instruction has so much info on it, its not funny. And the carb was so easy to put on its not funny.
