OK--THIS MORNING YOU SENT ME A MESSAGE, TO KEEP THINGS UNDERSTANDABLE AT THIS POST. THIS WAS THE "JEEP" PART OF IT:
I was thinking this morning about the Jeep. At first my brother was having problems with spark. He replaced the coil, cap, rotor and plug wires and said he had spark. Then he claimed it still wouldn't run, just turn over. I told him to spray starting fluid into the carb to see if it would fire. He said "No, it didn't". Now wouldnt that mean that there is still no spark? Because at that point you are eliminating the fuel system right?
I'M 4 HOURS FROM YOUR RIG--STILL MUCH CLOSER THAN YOU!
I DO NOT KNOW THE ABILITIES OF YOUR BROTHER ON THE OTHER END!
I SORTA NEED SOME INPUT FROM THE 1ST TESTS, "THE DOCTOR" ORDERED, AT THE BEGINNING OF THIS VISIT
IN PARTICULAR ******HOW IS HE TESTING FOR SPARK?***** EXACTLY WHAT HE IS DOING TO TEST FOR IT.
."HAVING SPARK" AND. WHAT IS THE EXACT DC VOLTAGE AT POSITIVE SIDE OF THE COIL ARE TWO DIFFERENT THINGS!
I NEED ACCURATE ANSWERS TO BOTH OF THE ABOVE. THIS IS HOLDING ME UP!
IF WE DO NOT UNDERSTAND WHAT EXACTLY TO DO, I WILL SLOW DOWN AND TEACH YOU FELLERS! OR TALK YOU THRU VIA PHONE COMMO
I AM SORTA OBLIGATED AND COMMITTED NOW: SOUTH CAROLINIAN, BROKE JEEP CJ 5, MILITARY. SORTA "ME" IN 1981
WITHOUT ANSWERS--I MIGHT HAVE TO WRITE A FULL CJ SERVICE MANUAL, TO ACCIDENTALLY STUMBLE ONTO YOUR PROBLEM. WITH ANSWERS, I MAY PINPOINT IT QUICK--OR AT LEAST CONCENTRATE ON THAT AREA MORE
THE "STARTER FLUID THING" OR A LITTLE FUEL----IS THE EZIST "QUICK" TEST TO DETERMINE WHETHER IT IS A SPARK OR FUEL PROBLEM. YOU REALLY ONLY HAVE TO TAKE THE BREATHER TOP OFF
GENERALLY SPEAKING---DOING THAT FUEL TEST IF IT CONTINUES TO "DRY TURN OVER" THERE IS "PROBABLY" NO SPARK----IF IT COUGHS, SPITS AND SPUTTERS, HIT A FEW TIMES, OR BACKFIRES. AT MINIMUM SOME SPARK IS PRESENT AND "I" TEND TO RULE OUT A FUEL PROBLEM
THE ABOVE IS NOT "SET IN STONE", BUT WORKS MOST OF THE TIME
THE OTHER IMPORTANT THINGS I NEED TO KNOW
1) IT RAN FINE---WAS PARKED---NOW TURNS OVER WELL (WILL NOT BUST OFF)---AND DOES NOTHING? DID "SOMETHING", BEFORE IT WAS FOOLED WITH?
2) IF YOU CAN---TELL ME EVERYTHING THAT HAS BEEN FOOLED WITH? WAS THE DISTRIBUTOR ITSELF REMOVED? ADJUSTMENTS, CARB, ALL THE SPARK PLUG WIRES REMOVED. ANYTHING, ALL THE WAY DOWN TO KNEELING AT THE FRONT BUMPER AND PRAYING. ASKING "THE GREAT AIRBORNE RANGER IN THE SKY" TO SEND COMPETENT ASSISTANCE, I.E. "THE BATTALION STALLION"
PLEASE LIST EVERYTHING AND ANSWER MY QUESTIONS.I NEED THE ENTIRE SITUATION, IN ORDER TO FORM A BATTLEPLAN
