Finally saved up the pennies and bought a Webber kit (32/36 DGEV WK551) from Quadratec and fitted it.
(First time I have ever fitted a carburettor - instructions were good, it was easy....).
Fitted an electric petrol pump at the same time (rather than fitting a regulator to drop the pressure from the nice new mechanical pump I fitted not long ago.....).

Started first time and runs smoothly. (Holy **** !!!)

Unfortunately it still "surged" under sustained load / up long hills etc..

Decided to experiment. (It was either that or commit suicide as a better death than telling the wife I had blown £500 for no benefit....)

Reading told me that "normal" Webber installations do not expect the "fuel filter with two outlets, one to return petrol to the tank if the carb doesn't want it" setup that the CJ7 has. They expect the Webber float seals to stop the flow from the (lower pressure...) electric pump without difficulty. So I put in a "normal" in-line fuel filter and just connected it to the carb.

This was useful as I was wondering what to do with the Webber "float overflow" output, and this allowed me to connect it to the fuel tank return pipe rather than having any overflow running out down the side of the engine.

Voila! the "surging" problem went away instantly!

Any ideas what was going on? Any problems with what I have done?

A bit of a long shot, but I need an ECU for my 03 4ltr WJ. Apparently, they are year specific. Part no. is 56044634AE.
Can't even find one at Rock Auto. Can anyone help?

It won’t be the seat, I recon you’ve turned an interior light in by mistake while removing the seats. My kids do it all the time in my ZJ.

I'm in the process of fitting some reclining bucket seats to my ZJ. I have removed the passenger side so I can fab some mounts with intention of fitting said seat to the original seat frame so as to retain some of the electric seat movement. I have unplugged the seat loom from the vehicle loom and its been sat  since Thursday. I have gone to open the Jeep today and the battery is as flat as a witches tit. Test battery voltage and its 0.04. The battery is new and I have had no issues with battery drain before now. Is it likely that leaving the seat disconnected has caused the drain, I hate electrics

Thank you for the replies, if anyone can suggest a track bar that will fit or put me on to someone who will either make one from scratch or modify the LHD JKS bar I have I would be extremely grateful. At the moment I'm only running a 2 inch lift so it's not really issue but I will be changing to a 3.5 inch lift, not being able to fit an adjustable bar has brought this part of my build to a full stop. I'm happy to pay an individual or a recommend company, I'm based in Hertfordshire but more than happy to travel to get this sorted,
