Ok so here is the problem, A few days ab=go my jeep decided that it just didn't want to go anymore. Well ok it was drivable, but when I tried to accelerate it would bog down. It would also start to i guess shimmy would discribe it, or even better it felt like it wanted to go, but somthing was holding it back. Talked to a few people, and read my repair manuel and decided to start with the fuel filter replacement. ( you know cheapest thing to fix) Well here inlays the problem. I followed the directions to a T and when I tried to remove the Fuel inlet nut It is just sitting in there spinning. I got it to back out to the end of the threads, but it will not back out any further. I can see the filter but the inlet nut will not back out enough to remove and replace the filter, and with the angle that it is at right now, I cannot replace the nut back to original position either.

So after all that here is the question. Do you have any tips for removeing the fuel inlet nut, or am I just skrewed and have to take it to a shop?

This is very important to me being as this is my DD, and I have no other transportation to and from work. So any and all help is greatly apreciated!

It looks like it's crossthreaded. Is there damaged threads on the carb or filter plug? If you think it's all the way out, then use a pair of channel locks to grab the fitting from the line end and wiggle up and down, while you twist side to side. You may need some teflon tape on the threads when reinstalling to prevent leaks, if the fitting is reusable. Hopefully the carb itself isn't stripped out.

I think I figured out that the filter and spring were installed backwards. I.E. the spring is caught on the fuel line inside the inlet nut. I think I am just gonna try to remove the fuel line all together. the inlet retaining nut was already stripped had to use vice grips, so I think I am going to try and just get it all redone. If possible. Any suggestions on where to look are greatly appreciated. Thanks for the help thus far.
