Your success depends on the model of the carburetor you own and your willingness to keep a fully correct carburetor on your Jeep or put together a hodge-podge of parts simply for the sake of reliability. The item you see advertised is a reproduction of the Part #407 Base commonly found on the WO 539S and early WO 698S installed in MBs and GPWs. It is a bargain at $75 plus shipping. They do function correctly when properly adjusted. They don't have a vacuum port for a Vacuum Advance Distributor and the big drawback is the lack of a manufacturer's warranty. If you own a WO 636SA and want to keep it whole, the 505 base needs bushings and a new throttle shaft. I perform that service by installing bushings and milling a new shaft. I also clean, prep and Parkerize the cast iron body of the base. The best part is I offer a One-Year-From-Date-Of-Installation Warranty. Your warranty doesn't start until you install it, use it and submit the Warranty Registration Form. The cost to you is shipping to me and then $110 for the service plus the return shipping.
it was a screw that was letting it leak air. thankfully not the throttle body
still runs a little rough at 800 rpm idle, but I can finally open the choke all the way.
I'm going to guess that it was one or both of the screws holding the bowl/main body to the throttle. Now then. Tune that bad boy up and get that idle down to between 650 and 700. While you're at it, clean the soot and gas from the spark plugs and recheck the gap.
