Ground cable to the block, power to the positive side of the coil, ground to the negative side of the coil. If you still have a solinode or can wire a solinode (I would for safety) then cross the start terminal to spin the engine for start up. Prime the carb by filling the bowl if needed. If you don't have a solinode you can touch the positive cable directly to the start momentarily but be careful. AND of course have it where you can snatch the wire of the coil quickly if needed (a remote starter button works well for this, only runs if you hold the button). I don't think I forgot anything.
Careful your character's showing

Just beware, despite popular opinion, de-chroming your Jeep will not make it climb Everest, ford the Pacific, out run John Force, crawl up the side of the Grand Canyon, tow D-11 dozers out of the mud or even start every time for that matter. You need hi-steer for all that...
Running On Empty...
Kind of forgot the ignition... Didn't you?

So here I am.. Going to get it processed and cataloged over the next week. I have a friend with a 4 bay storage unit that I can use some space in for free to store big parts like frame, tub, axles, etc. Planning on having some parts for sale by next weekend.
After a month I am going to evaluate the cash & part flow and decide if I want to get in to parting or sell what I have and call it quits. I can never make as much parting as my company makes so this is just a hobby for jeep money. Wife said I can keep whatever I make so doing it and put it towards the jeep.
The engine was said to run. Was asking about starting it so if it did was going to sell it whole and if not going to pull the sell-able parts and scrap the rest.
This is what I got.. 1978 CJ5 258/t150/d20
-Its all there
-Has hard top and doors. Going to clean and paint them before I sell. They are in decent shape.
-Has factory narrow trac's with factory 4.10's
-Tub has a clear title. The rear paz corner has been cut out but it came with a new patch panel. Other that the corner the tub is very solid. Going to weld the corner in, clean it up a little before I sell it.
-Windshield and one fender are bad but the rest of the body is in good shape.
So thats my story.
