I was thinking maybe the valves are too tight or something even though it was remanufactured and pre run, I can open the oil fill cap and see them moving but are they moving enough? My plugs get wet, not sure how much and i can smell burnt fuel. Im having someone else look at it whos got some knowledge too so ill let you know. Good luck with the battle, theres still some summer left!!
I've tried a new crank sensor and a new coil and i get no sparkat all-the distributor works.I've compared it to a friends identical 91 yj just to make sure my tests are valid(I KNOW that he's getting spark-yow!)

Well id really like to thank all of you out there that have been helping me get it figured out. I finally got it running last night. Not having dealt with thisswapping this motor before and going underwater definately made me question a lot of things. I ended up taking apart all connections and reconnecting. Just kept rotating the rotor past where it sat at #1 and how the book said too. Ended up two teeth plus/minus past the #1. This may be right for all of these or maybe mine is further ahead. Either way i may be ******* but i finally have it. Least now i can debug on the trail as i know the whole system. Now to fix that ceased alternator, boy does the belt squeal. and ill see you on the trail. Thanks again for the help, Illl lend my knowledge out there when i can!!
