Ok I have posted several times on this but now I have everything installed on my 98 jeep yj 4.2L 258. but I am not having any luck getting it to fire.... My first guess is that I have the timing off. I do have fuel flow, it took awhile and a mouth full of gas but it is pumping.
I will explaine both the carb and the dist in pictures below.
This is a new engine to me, it has about 35000 miles on it.
I installed a new:
CRT Performance HEI Distributor
New exhaust manifold and new Valve cover
Carb install specs:
I installed the vacume lines per the diagram on the 32/36 sticky
I came off of the CTO valve in two places with a T like shown in the diagram from there I went to another T one into the carb vac port on the right side in the picture and than to the vacume advance on the carb
off of the valve in the spacer below the carb to the PCV valve and than down to the charcoal canister
straight to canister
from CTO to EGR valve (i do not have and EGR tube so I plugged the hole with a bolt until I can get one)
Hose to the right is fuel
hose to the lower left with T is the vac advance
hose on the top left is carb vent directly to canister as well
Distributor (CRT Performance HEI)
This engine had the distributor removed when I got it so I had to find TDC on my own. I put my finger over the 1st cyl spark plug hole and turned the engine until I felt the air. When I checked the timing the line was at 0 TDC. I would assume this means I found the TDC of the 1st cyl.
from there I installed the dist with the vacume advance facing the passanger fender, took off the cap and marked the first point based on the rotar button. installed the wires 153624. I do get a spark.
so I get nothing....... it turns and I hear a carb pop every 10 seconds or so and a little bump but nothing that sounds like it is going to fire. I even tried turning the dist 180 Deg out but still nothing. The plugs are flat black not wet.
any ideas where to start???
