My engine stopped running. 86 258 CJ7 stock. I knew the timing chain was going. so I replaced it. Still couldn't get it running, turned out I put the cam gear in 180 degrees the wrong way. Fipped that around, put it back together. Cranked it again and no explosion. Smelling fuel, getting fuel, checked the spark, was weak. Replaced the coil, cap, rotor, plugs, and wires. Still no start, checked the rotor position it was out of position at TDC, it was about at postion 2 on a 1, 5, 3, 6, 2, 4 firing pattern. So I pulled the distributor out and repositioned it to the #1 position at TDC. Still no explosion.
I have fuel, spark, and presumably air. What else can I check or do?? My brain is tapped as far as knowledge. Would the ignition module have anything to do with this? Am I getting to much fuel? Any ideas????
Also any web pages on proper timing. I'm only 87% sure I have the cam and crankshaft in the right postions.
