won't start

Changed water pump now jeep wonít start, checked to see if I knocked something loose didnít see anything. Getting gas in carb and spark at coil, battery was disconnected for about 24 hrs.

Not the computer. You need to jumper the starter and see if it turns over. Do you hear the starter solinoid on the firewall click in when you try and start it?

Check all the fuseable links on the firewall and make sure they are all good. They look like wires coming off the starter solenoid. The easiest way is to jumper right across the starter solenoid on the firewall.

Solenoid to battery

Wait! You said you have spark and fuel....does the engine spin when you turn the key? If it spins, it's not your starter!
