I appreciate you "complying" with my requests on Narrowing down your problem.
I get few responses. Never know if I helped a lot of the time. Maybe they think I'm Stupid. Regardless, my Jeeps' run well! I know what to do in troubled times!
You will not be sorry, this will make your Baby, very happy in the end. Referring to your Jeep. It will drive a lot better, even if we locate something else causing this issue, along the way.
Sounds as though He ( a strong, manly pronoun, for a "Manly Vehicle". Please don't give HIM a Sissy name) Has been Neglected for some time!
Pap is doing better, . Than before. Having a Blood clot filter installed tomorrow, so they can take him off of blood thinners.
I see you haven't picked up your PMs (Private Messages) I can tell, when they go into my "Sent Box"

Keep up the work----let me know when "Mama" gets back from Harbor Freight with your tools
Are you CONFIDENT in doing all of this? DEFINITELY ANSWER THIS ONE!
Sometimes I make the mistake, in thinking people have already done the Basic Checking of stuff
Before we go on, Does your Jeep run decent, from the beginning, and then start messing up? The reason I'm asking this now is, if its always bucking and such. Have you VERIFIED your FIRING ORDER IS CORRECT?
Do you know how to do this? I will help you with that, NOW, This is very important, and if this is your WHOLE PROBLEM, I will still talk you thru the rest, if you want to continue!
I will Talk you thru what you have. And what you should have. IF YOU ARE UNSURE. IF YOU ARE CONFIDENT, 100% SURE THAT IT'S RIGHT, I WILL NOT TAKE THE TIME TO RUN THRU IT (this could also account for bent push rods)
Not only could the wires be on the wrong positions, but the distributor could be installed (incorrectly) as not to allow for ENOUGH "SPINNAGE" to time it correctly (bottoms out before it gets to the marks), or the UNIT ITSELF, be worn to the point of not turning (in a smooth circle) and jumping about erratically!
I'm gonna re-read your stuff and make a list of what you have done thus far. Then make a list of whats next
How is my "RAMBLING" so far, in this and other posts. Are you able to Keep up with/ "Decipher" my "CRUDE" Explanations?
You might also review my answering in this post, I have sorta went back and edited here and there!
I'm SORRY.I know my stuff, I could Show you much EZer.I do not do this on a Daily Basis.I have Fixed Every Jeep in my Area, so I'm sorta sitting around like the "Maytag Man"!
Happy Vacation!---Stay warm with Baby #2.(That would be # 3 in my case!)
