HELP!! no spark
so my 76 cj with the 258 isnt creating a spark, i know the ignition coil is good. help on solenoid wiring and distributor tells etc would be very helpful as the electrical is not my strong suit. i know im gettin good fuel, and good air, so there can't be too too many other problems right? any good walk throughs tests would be a great help
DO YOU HAVE POWER AT THE COIL? just because its good does not mean its getting power. if it were and you have fuel going in then it should start. start with where you have power and go from there.
if you have power to the coil and the coil test good then do you have an ignition control module? it will either be in the dis cap or there abouts. they go bad and can cause the same issue. i know nothing about the older dis's on jeeps.
If its a Prestolite distributor and you're not worried about originality this might be a good time to go with an HEI or other "one wire" distributor. Easy to hook up, simple to troubleshoot. Might be worth a search. Good luck.
tested the negative, returned with a result that the ignition module needed replacement, now the engine is firing only when i let the key off the ignition and not maintaining, could this be solenoid wiring now?
