Test and/ or replace your coil
Do the same for the IGNITION MODULE (probably on the side of your distributor), it can be tested for FREE at Autozone, Advance Auto, and other popular stores. Many times with Jeep CJs, it needs to be tested repeatedly to "warm 'em up" at least 4-6 times, any one failure, I would replace it!
Use "heat dissipating stuff" under it, upon re-installation, to dissipate heat. They generally have small "Condiment Size Packets" of "it"(Lost for the correct name) really cheap at the counter!
Let me know if that helped
