You have the timing/rotor correct Scott.
Pull a wire and put an old plug in it, ground the electrode to the block and crank it see if you have spark.
Stroke the carburetor and see if you get a squirt of gas, if not, you may have to crank it some more to fill up the carburetor bowl.
Get a fire extinguisher or some wet towels in case you get a carb backfire.
Just like this....
Gawd... how many times have I looked at diagrams and schematics and glossed over them. Now I am neck deep in hooey! Ironically, this diagram makes a little sense. I spent a fair amount of time tracing wires from the dizzy to the module. I also have 3, yes THREE 10# extinguishers standing by. Not because we're pyros or anything, but my FIL was in the industry.
It would take a least 20 seconds of cranking to get fuel to the carb. Do this in 2 10 second shots . Did you put any gas down the carb. Like said , check for spark, I've had coils go bad just sitting, double check firing order on the cap. It goes clockwise from #1 . Check for power with the key in run position at the ign. Module, the large red wire with the white stripe.
No fuel in the tank. I poured gas down the carb to see if I could get some kind of fire. I wasn't really expecting it to go on the very first try, but you can bet I was silently crossing the fingers of my imagination! Oh yeah, I did not check for spark, but I certainly will do that after I get the correct plug wires tomorrow.
Scott, you say you pointed the rotor at the #1 cylinder but you want it pointing at one of the cap towers. Is that what you did? That tower then becomes your #1.
I have some uncertainty here. I tried to make the dizzy fit the application. If I turned it back one tooth it would point at the number 2 cylinder. One tooth forward and it was pointing sort of between one and two, but more toward one. (stay with me here!) One more tooth forward and it was past one toward the grill. So I turned it back one tooth so it pointed between. I got hung up on number one cylinder. The Ford cap goes on only one way. I turned the dizzy to make what would become the number one tower line up with the rotor. Should it be before, after, or dead-on the tower? Or is the whole process wrong?
This harness is not nuttered. Should it be nuttered as there is no computer? As Dutch pointed out it is for the BBD carb, but I'm assuming there is some component somewhere that needs some current that it's not getting because the computer can't control it, so shouldn't it be nuttered? Or is it moot?
Instead of trying for the gratification of hearing it fire, I will finish installing all of the wiring as far as I can go. Then I will post up pics for your critique. I fully expect to have to pull the dizzy one more time (or two, or three...), and I'm not certain I have everything grounded. For now, my block is grounded to the battery. Dizzy is grounded to the block. What else do I need for starting?
pman, I'm sorry I haven't gotten the WS frame on yet. Since you're at the beach I know you aren't thinking about your CJ, which is pining away at this very moment! Maybe you'll get to see it tomorrow... after your Commander-in-Chief drives you home.
