Ok, folks, here's my first post, just not what I wanted to start off with. I started installing my suspension lift yesterday ( '87 YJ, 258, 3.5" lift, 33-12.5's,still got more to do), needed some tunes, so I left my ignition on to play the stereo (I know, I know!) Today I finished up, slapped the tires on, and went to start her up and no joy. Checked for spark, and of course there wasn't any. I had recently installed a juice box and did the "Nutter Bypass", so I undid both of these just for kicks- still no joy. Tried manually firing the coil, still no spark. Lack of anything resembling a voltmeter forced me to "shotgun" troubleshoot; an idiot light to check for voltage, and just replacing the ignition module and pickup.
I even went so far as to run my fingers over each wire as far as I could get to check for burns, breaks, etc... Am I missing something, forgot to check anything, or am I being punished for wrenching without beer?
