87 wrangler with 258 spark problem.
My daughters 87 quit the other day and we cannot get it cranked. Upon futher checking I am not getting a spark from any off the plug wires. I have voltage at the connector on the distributor where it hooks to the wiring harness. Also when I turn the engine over I have voltage at the end of the wire fron the coil to the dist, but no voltage out the dist wires to the plugs. Any suggestions as to what to check. Also there is a steady voltage of about 13 volts to both sides of the coil, I know on my cj that one side has less voltage than the other, could this be a problem. All replies are greatly appreciated. Thanks for the post.
