OK, lets try a little more agressive!
Lets pop the distributor cap,
See if your rotor button is tight (pushed on well, maybe the hold down screws are loose)
If its been a while, replace this and the distributor cap
Maybe more overlooked maintainence, neglected
How 'bout them plug wires, whats their story?
A repair Manual would really assist you in what should be done and when
READ THRU IT!....Has a Troubleshooting section! Keep it in your rig for emergencies!
I'm done preaching!
Lets remove the Ignition Module---Call Autozone and Advance Auto, See If they can test THIS ONE (they should be able to)FREEEEEEEE!!!
Yours is on the side of the distributor.....I just put one on a Truck less than 2 months ago (Dead Truck) Autozone about $40??? Test yours 1st!!
In order to remove this deal you will need a SPECIAL TOOL, it looks like a Drawer Knob with a allen wrench end (you probably do not have that size, as I did not, once upon a time.
When you have this puppy tested, get them to do it 5-7 times, in a row, this will warm it up inside (or whatever) If it starts failing on any of the last 3 times , replace it...........Test the new one the same way before you leave.....Don't Ask....Just do it!
Installing your old one back on is going to require a heat sink grease----get a little pack at the parts house.
While you are in the distributor, try to move the shaft, SIDE to SIDE----Looking for play or wobble in the shaft (Not slack in turning it, its normal to have some there)
Inspect all of your parts (that we are dealing with) for damage and excesssive wear
I do not mean to make you start buying stuff, but something you should have already done, might be your problem.
Reply with wonderful news!
Like you bought a CJ 5!
