'67 cj5 will not crank
I gave the jeep a tune up: changed spark plugs, wires, oil change cleaned the carb., drained all the old gas out, ect. It fired right up no problem idled fine sounded great. I took it down the road and it spit and sputtered so i stopped and it still just idled fine. when i went to take off it went dead and i have can not get it to start back up to save my life. can someone please help me with this? this is my first jeep rebuild and i want to get it running good before i get to the cosmetic parts.
if it cranks over but not starting, can you see if you are getting fuel to the carb? you could have pinched a line when you re-installed the tank, happened to me before, give us some more details.....
Maybe check the fuel filter...any junk that may have been in the lines might have clogged the filter...pending how long it was sitting wouldn't matter if you drained the tank (helps), still gonna find some gunk somewhere.
only because i just had a similar problem, do you have a ballast resistor ? what volt reading do you get at the coil with ignition turned to "on" (not running) after you get this reading , start it if it will run for a minute and test how many volts you get at the battery, this will eliminate some of the ignition issues.
