1986 Jeep CJ7 Repair Question
Missing or shudder
This just started happening last couple few weeks. Although in fairness, I just fixed a situation where the Jeep wouldn’t start because it had No Spark, and the distributor was moved, but timing never really set by timing light, but rather by ear.
Wondering, could it be timing, requiring the timing to be set?
2) Another issue, not sure that it’s related to the above. Upon starting up from a dead stop (at a light or stop sign) with wheels turned to right, so making a right hand turn (this is when I notice it most), almost every other time I make this right hand turn, the transmission seems to shake/shudder as opposed to starting off smooth. Clutch was replaced a couple of years ago (Luuk), and has maybe 20 – 30 K since replacing. At other times (especially when pulling straight ahead), it starts of very smooth to the degree you wouldn’t know it was a standard transmission.
Definitely have the timing set correctly. Incorrect timing and ignition problems can often feel like a buck/j3rk coming from the transmission.

AIN'T SEEN YOU IN A WHILE
I DO NOT REMEMBER YOUR ENGINE SIZE
FOR SURE, YOU NEED TO TIME IT....ADJUST CARB.....CHECK TIMING...ADJUST CARB....IDLE SPEED AND MIXTURE
IT'S NOT GOOD MESSIN' WITH OTHER STUFF, UNTIL YOU KNOW, EVERYTHING IS TWEAKED TO FULL POTENTIAL.....IF THE PROBLEM PERSISTS, WE WILL THEN, INVESTIGATE OTHER STUFF
A TIMING LIGHT (NON-ADJUSTABLE TYPE IS BEST) AND A TACH/ DWELL METER TO TUNE CARB, SET IDLE SPEED.........YOU CAN USE A VACUUM GAUGE TO TWEAK THE CARB, I FIND THE TACH TO BE MORE "USER-FRIENDLY" TRYING TO PEAK IT OUT. I SELDOM USE THE VACUUM GAGE TO TUNE.
I'M GONNA SEND YOU A LINK TO LOOK OVER, AS FAR AS "HOW" (IF YOU CAN DE-CIPHER MY LINGO!) I EXPLAIN BETTER IN PERSON!
THE GUY IN THIS LINK HAS A 304----I SORTA USED MY 258 PICS TO EXPLAIN THINGS.....AND TRIED TO TRANSLATE OVER TO "304", SO HE WOULD UNDERSTAND.
LET ME KNOW IF YOU SEE HOW IT WORKS, GIVE ME ENGINE SIZE, I MAY BE ABLE TO "BOTTLE FEED" YOU THE INFO YOU NEED, MAYBE BETTER EXPLANATIONS THAN WITH THE GUY IN THE LINK.
WAITIN' ON YOU
