well I went bye a shop and talked to a guy that used to be a jeep mechanic for 15 years and he said it was most deff my timming. when I stabed my dizzy I set the crank at TDC and stabed the dizzy with the rotor facing #1 and that was wrong he said. it has to be off from #1 by one notch forword so I did that and it runs like its brand new now. no sputters, backfires nothing. thanks for everyones help.
