Time to really get to know this jeep, I'll post progress as I go.

Thanks again for all the help!
Sounds like it is working and not broke, do you want to spend all that time and money on a working CJ?

It's working with a jumper wire from the battery to the coil. The carburetion is poor, but it runs. Idle is sketchy. I want a reliable daily driver kind of CJ and this one has a long way to go yet to be that.
