Cj, I see where you have assisted many with electrical issues on cj's in the past. I have a 1983 cj 7 which I can not seem to diagnose. I am far from a mechanic so any help would be greatly appreciated.
It is an 1983 cj 7 which was converted over to a 304. I rarely drive it but have owned it for several years and haven't had any major issues with it until lately. About a month ago it would not start.
I checked and it was not getting fire. I tried finding a loose wire but had no luck. The jeep would start and run on about every 10-15 attempts and then run random amounts of time before shutting down.
I replaced the coil and the jeep started first attempt and ran perfect. Thinking I had fixed it I shut it off and did not try it again for approximately two weeks. Then back to the same thing but probably starting less often. I have tried different coil wires, a third coil, starter solenoid, and a electronic ignition module all without any success.
Please let me know what other info and pics you need to help diagnose. Also I do not think I'm located but a few miles from you. Thanks.
have the same problem?
