I'm gonna paste in a bunch!

Pay attention to the Part about the CORRECT COIL! (Just above "my" 2nd set of pics)

http://www.2carpros.com/questions/1986-jeep-cj7-help-needed

As you can see from the link, I will hang with you, make pics, send pics and links......anything to aid a Fellow CJer!......Keeping "TRUE HEARTED" CJ Jeep people on/ off the Road is my crusade here.

Are you Mechanical, Can you use a voltmeter well, can you send pics, DO YOU PLAY WELL WITH OTHERS?

Your turn, we WILL get something happening!

Nbrown,

I too would probably commit suicide if Jeep had not been roadworthy for the last 12+ days.

Did you get him fixed?

Did we help at all?

We do like to hear the rest of the story, we learn too!

OOOOOOOH NOOOOOO!

The F-250 is yours!

You know the CJs is my AO

I just sorta jumped in on the wrong DZ, dropped a few 60mm mortar rounds. Now on E and E!

I did't know if you had caught the part about "Turning up the idle"

How you reckon he came up with "Timing is off" (unless he messed with it)

Think it was just a rough idle, and his pals just started slinging stuff at him?

If thats the case he failed to mention "Vapor Lock"--Thats an all time favorite meaning, "Yeah, I know my stuff, buddy, disprove that". If you can actually figger out what it means!

Get back on the F-250. That cyber stuff messes me up!
