Need help with electronic distributor.

'59 CJ5 w/F-134. I tried a Pertronix electronic conversion and couldn't get it to work so I got a complete electronic distributor from Omix-ada, installed per the instuctions (very easy) and it won't work either. No spark, no nothing. Put the regular distributor back in and it starts right up. Original distributor runs o.k. but not great, misses pretty good at idle, thought the electronic route would smooth it up. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Throw me some pics of the orignal distributor and I'll try and see if there is something odd about it...

Is your 59 still 6 Volt? if so, that would probably be your problem.

Jeephammer, I'll try to get some pix, camera is pretty crummy.
Jeepdaddy, I don't think it was ever a 6 volt. Definitely a 12 volt.

If yours was the 6 volt and you are ordering for the model, you might be getting 6 volt parts instead of 12 volt conversion ones?
