'63 CJ5 Fried Ignition?
Hi All, been awhile, I picked up a '63 (supposedly) CJ5 # 57548 151xxx. I bought it 'not running' & 'no paper work'. With that being said this is what I found with the F-head 134... No spark, the points, condenser & wire from the coil were fried. So I replaced the burnt stuff. I turned the key on, and rolled 'er over, several times about 5-10 seconds each time. I shut the key off after each time. The last time after rolling over, I stopped, and before I could turn the key off... the wire from the coil started smoking, like direct to ground! The coil is an aftermarket 12V Accel 'Super Stock', the ign. wire is to the + side and the - side is wired to the distributer... any help would be gratefully appreciated, thanks-Craig
