1985 Jeep CJ7 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Manual 95000 miles
I have a completely original 85 Jeep CJ7 Lardeo. Recently, I installed a performance distributor from Davis Unified in Memphis, TN. The performance distributor is based on the GM HEI that combines the coil pack and distributor into one unit with a single wire hook-up. In comparison, the original Ford ignitiion system had a power wire for the coil and a seperate coil pick-up assembly that connected to the original Jeep wiring harness. The engine starts and runs. Ok on the new HEI distributor, but the computer systems that controls the metering rod in the carb has stoped working. After testing every system and finding no issues. With the enigine running I simply pluged the old distributor back into the wiring harness via the coil pick up assembly and grounded the unit to see the effect. The computer/metering rod started working. Question, is there a work-around to make the computer system work PROPERLY with the HEI distributor?
have the same problem?
