Hey everyone hopeing someone can help me out.
I just recently bought a 1984 Jeep CJ7 4.2 258 inline 6
as a project car and ive done alot of repairs already and am ready to
install this HEI Distributor I just bought and i need a little advice as what to do. I just replaced the carburator, unfortuneatly they gave me one with electronic feedback which i know you dont use with an HEI.
Carb i bought and this HEI from the carb i have a fuel line going to the top of the engine block and one going to the vacuum advance. i hope someone can help explain how to put the distributor on properly and alos the connections i need to make to the carb. also carb is not recieving fuel since i put the new one on cause i havent been able to start it cause of the ignition problem, would this be because the jeep isnt on and fuel pump hasnt activated and if so would i just use starter fluid to get it going?

Thank you to whomever has time to respond and help it much appreciated.

Wellcome Nick, Your first post I see. Post this in the CJ forum and you will get a lot of info as a lot of the CJ guys run a HEI.
