I got an 83 Cherokee with the 360, i got it after it had sat for 8 years. Any way I got to crank it over with the key, got nuthin, so I jump the solenoid and and it cranks over just fine, I. Gettin fuel and no spark. I'm gettin power to my coil but not from it(says the test light) I replace the coil and plugs. I still had no spark, I check the cap, it's pretty bad so I replace the cap and rotor button. I jump the solenoid and still no spark, the only thang I haven't done it replace the wires(but I have sprint car wires that are goin on it). Im wondering if it's a bad wire to the coil not tellin it to send power, if any one has any ideas, maybe some diagrams or pictures I could use as reference. Thanks.
I've taken the coil wire off the top of the dist and cranked it over and got nuthin still. I did find a plug with power to it that pluggs in right above the oil filter, and I mean so close that the bottom prong was touching the filter, so I "adjusted" the oil filter a little bit but didn't have time to hock it up, the plug looks like the plug that a coil pick up would plug into. The dist is spinning, the cap wasn't all the way on and I didn't realize and cranked it over and the cap jumped a round.
