Mr. Jeep uses a "Stock Coil" it says "use with external resistor only"
Although Mr. Jeep does not have a "Ceramic Resistor" like you are used to seeing on other rigs.
He uses a "RESISTANCE WIRE" between the coil and "ON" position on your Key operated ignition switch. (still considered a "External Resistor")
If your new coil has a "INTERNAL RESISTOR" you probably do not have enough voltage to run your rig.
Initial Starting delivers FULL 12 Volts to the coil via "I" terminal on your SOLENOID (thus trying to start) HOWEVER when you release the key---"I" dies....and since "I" overrides COIL RESISTANCE ONLY TEMPORARILY while crankingyour "DOUBLE" resistance cannot take over! (Mega Voltage drop!)
GET COIL WITHOUT "INTERNAL RESISTOR" (for use with "EXTERNAL RESISTOR")---or rewire from ignition to new coil--with no resistor wire
I CAN HELP YOU WITH ALMOST ANY CJ PROBLEM...JUST KEEP REPLYING BELOW!
"I" is the little red connector--Front Right......"S" is front left.
