Engine Mechanical problem
1978 Jeep CJ5 V8 Four Wheel Drive Manual
In attempting to get a vehicle running again that had sat for approximately 2 years, after replacing the battery and the fuel, the only way to start it was to pour gas down the carb and it would cut off immediately after it ran through that gas. Figuring it was a fuel delivery I checked the fuel lines and replaced the fuel pump (mechanical). Still wouldn't start and cut off after pouring gas down the carb. Rebuild and cleaned carb, still wouldn't start cold (unless vehicle had been running withing the past hour or so). Dealt with the starting issue by pouring gas down the carb whenever I had a cold start. Now the vehicle won't start even attempting a rolling start. Is this an ignition problem (starter, battery, starter solenoid good), haven't replaced the plugs or wires?
have the same problem?
