Alrighty Medic, lets get started. Just thought you might be humored at the fact that im a youngin (18) and prefer older vehicles. I am actually in a club of IH scouts and am in the process of helping my uncle rebuild his father's 1974 scout II with this same motor. But I personally prefer jeeps to scouts. Lol.
Yes I do have a voltmeter and I am pretty familiar with it, at least when it comes to DC and continuity testing. I paid $300 for this jeep, and would surely love to get it running. My yj has a rear main seal leak that I am just guiding along until I can fix it up. But in the meantime, this is for fun. So time is no issue for me. I posted this right before I went to work, but I will get up early tomorrow morning and do the test you suggested. I have also done a little more research and will definitely make use of my voltmeter and ill report back to you as soon as I Am done.
I have read up on something called a "nutter bypass" that was suggested just as a quick diagnosis, it basically bypasses the ECM by running the wires from the ignition control module to the distributor. From my imagination, I cant see how that would solve my current issue. Do you have any more knowledge of this modification and whether its application would aid in solving my issue at all?
