Hi folks, been a long time since I've posted. At any rate, I've got a stock 1961 CJ5 with the Hurricane 4 engine. I finally got tired of messing with the original carb and put a solex on it. Works great. I had quit using the original fuel pump and installed an electric fuel pump some time ago. Recently I tried starting it and had some problems. It would start and run good and then die. I could wait a bit and it would start right up and run good for a short period and die. Obviously not getting enough gas so I installed a different electric fuel pump. Same problem. I then discovered the little hidden filter under the gas line connector and took it out. Thought I had it fixed. Started and ran real good and drove it a few blocks. Thought it was fixed. Went out this morning and the same problem. Start and run until I accelerate the engine and then die. Looking at the clear fuel filter I noticed that it was not filling up so I cracked the screw on the fuel line into the carb and bled the line a little and the filter would fill back up and the engine would start and run unitl the filter was empty and the die. I thought the bowl might not be venting so I checked that out. The vent is open into the upper throat of the carb. I can stick a little wire in there and feel the float. When the filter is fairly full and engine is running I can see the level in the clear filter slowly dropping and the engine dies. This happens on two different electric fuel pumps so I don't think that's the problem. I got to thinking maybe the fuel line out of the bottom of the gas tank was restricted but I blew air through the line and could hear it coming out of the fuel inlet on the side of the jeep. What do you guys think? I'm about out of ideas. Obviously if I can get gas in the bowl the things purrs like a sewing machine. Thanks.
