jeep sputters

my friend has a yj with a 360 in it, and while driving, it spits, like a hesitation. We rebuilt the carb, replaced fuel filter, wires, plugs, cap, rotor, and coil. Still does it. Alternator is working fine.

That's what I would suspect also, Ignition Module going bad.

Ok so now the jeep is acting funny again. Maybe i need a ignition module from a v8 jeep?? like a wagoneer? Or maybe something is causing them to fry?

Its only been 10 days. Take it back and get another.
I don't believe it makes a difference on the module .


Or, new friends with Cj's. Of course its acting funny, you would to, if your eyes were square.

We've been through a few ignition modules from new, and its still sputtering. It seems that it does it when theres a load on it, like when we give it a lot of gas or go up hills. It doesnt do it in 4 low.
