Wiring may be an issue here.
Do you still have Motorcraft ignition? (Module)
Mr. Distributor is plugged off where it should have vacuum advance hooked up.
Never run since you got it?
Will it crank (turn over), I assume it will not start (bust off!).
Someone did some over wiring if there is 12 volts on both sides of the resistor.
See if you can straighten things out!
I have a diagram for a 1979, it is probably about the same for an 1980.
I am going to send several diagrams. Keep in mind I had to color all of the wires in "Microsoft paint" from two pages scanned from a manual. I did this years ago. Colored markers used in a manual with lines close together just never did cut it when following wires!
Solid colors are correct. White wires show up black. Along the wires somewhere it is written the color.
Note: Wires with stripes or color tracers are colored with the correct "main" color. The diagram did not denote what the color of the stripe was. I made "dashes" on these wires just to let you know it does have a tracer stripe-color unknown. You will see this. You will get used to it.
In these diagrams, the 304 is shown top left. However, it shares the rest of the wiring with the 258 six cylinder (Like I have).
I "rob" parts of the diagrams to explain things, you will see this with my ignition diagram.
I had the office store blow up my two pieces, I mated them (they overlap) and had the whole deal laminated. About $25.00, it was well worth it in tracing things out.
I can help you 100% with a CJ - any stock type problem, until we get you running and tuned up. CJs are where I soar the best!
Let me know what needs to be tackled or any questions you have along the way. I am not perfect, so you may run up on an imperfection or hard to see something in my diagrams.
