Cj7 ignition and chaos theory

Greetings. I am a new member and this is my first post but I wanted to start out by saying thank you to everyone's information I have used to keep my jeep rolling. However, all good things come to an end and I am completely dumbfounded. My 78 cj7 (amc 304) was having ignition problems ( would not turn over)usually resolved by stomping on the brake or rolling back a couple of feet. Seriously. Otherwise everything was fine. then one day my tricks stopped working. I replaced the ignition switch, battery, starter and solenoid with no luck. Today I replaced the ignition cylinder and it fired right up. I went out two hours later and nothing happened. I turn the key and the accessories come on but there is no attempt to even turn over I am obviously missing something but I cannot find it! Any suggestions? Can a jeep have free will?
