Quick basic of the vehicle. It's a 64 CJ5 with a hurricane 4-cylinder engine. I've replaced the spark plugs, wires, distributer cap, points, starter celonoid (sp?).

The problem. Initially I can get the engine to start with a little bit of cranking and it'll idle with a little choke set. If I try anything like add some throttle, it'll die. Then each time I try to start it, it'll want to catch and start but won't keep going. Any idea what I can do to get the engine to keep running?

Thanks,

Trevor
