    Hey guys need a quick diagnosis,

    when i first start my jeep up whether it be 80 or 40 degrees outside, when i give it gas the RPM's fall until it dies if i dont feather the throttle. even if i tach it up to 3 grand. i have replaced most electrical parts, cap, rotor, points, coil, and also fuel filter, rebuilt carb, but it is still doing it it also happens when i am going down the road, it seems to not want to go and feels like its a 4 cylinder.

    You didn't mention what carb you were running.
    Also does it go away when it is warm?

      If it is OK when warm then it sounds like a simple choke problem.

        its a motorcraft 2150 2bbl
        and it doesnt go away until it has been running for about 45 min, i have to warm it up for about a half an hour just to make it up the hill in my driveway, then after about 15 min of driving it goes away until i park for about 30 min then it does it again and takes just as long to go away.,

          How long till your engine water reaches operating temp.??

          Are you running headers?

          If your running stock exhaust, do you use a heat riser to warm up the floor of the intake?

          Have you verified the position of the choke beore starting the engine?
