right carburetor

Asked by Feb 22, 2017 at 03:48 PM about the 1979 Jeep CJ5

Question type: Car Customization

I think I need a new carburetor for my 6 cylinder in line 1979 cj5 jeep, what
would be my best options or choices? It runs great, then, out of the blues, it
just won't start, and I think it gets flooded with gasoline... Wait 30 minutes, and
it starts again like a champion... a mechanic said I needed a new carburetor,
what do you think? I have the original one still in there! thanks!

    Could this be the float valve in the carburetor? or something more sinister? I haven't had a lot of automotive repair experience but I'm a quick study. Any helpful advice is much appreciated. Thanks
