Go to the site and it will go through step by step on how to check your ignition system. It will be one of theearlier ones check the resistnace of the pickup coil in dist if it is out of spec the car won't start.

HEY BOSS I'LL GUIDE YOU AROUND ALL OVER THE PLACE TILL WE GET YOUR BABY RUNNING

GOT A DIGITAL VOLTMETER?

TELL ME WHAT YOU GOT HERE, IN MY 1ST PIC?

ALSO LET ME KNOW WHAT KINDA MODIFICATIONS HAVE BEEN DONE OVER THE YEARS

BEAR WITH ME, MOST OF MY PICS ARE OF MY '77 CJ 5 WITH A 258. AND A 4 BBL INTAKE AND CARB.I ALSO SWAPPED OUT MY "CRAPPIEFIED" PRESTOLITE IGNITION SYSTEM FOR A MUCH BETTER MOTORCRAFT SYSTEM. (IF YOURS IS ORIGINAL, IT'S PRESTOLITE)

THE CHECKS AND TESTS ARE ABOUT THE SAME

BUY NOTHING ELSE, UNTIL WE TALK MORE!
