1988 YJ No start issues

OK here goes, My Carter carbed 6 cyl YJ was running - missing and barley running when I went to move it in the yard. Stalled and would not start again. Turns over fine, has 12vdc to the coil with switch on, cap and rotor look ok. Already had new plugs and wires. Poured a little gas into the carb and it fired right up ran a little while ( longer than the amount gas I poured in would have lasted) idling fine, then stalled and no start again. I just put on a new fuel filter. Any ideas? I know the Carter carb is useless, but I am waiting for the snow to melt before my buddy can pull a Motorcraft off his parts CJ for me to replace the Carter.

Re: 1988 YJ No start issues

When the problem started after installing the new fuel filter, I would have a look there. Maybe not enough fuel can pass for some reason?
