"Rush" no go WTF?

So... did the rush ignition thing... now I get nothing, little back fire and that's it.

Questions...is it right to put the new rotor in the same position of the old one? Along with the cap?
And what coil wire should I use neither fit (old/new)?
Does timing need adjusted?
Do I need to find TDC and put rotor on?

When I get doing being frustrated (like tomorrow), I'll put the stock stuff back on.

Am I missing something? I thought this was a plug and play deal?
83 CJ with 79 motor-all stock.

Put the engine at TDC (#1 compression stroke). MAKE SURE THE SPARK PLUG WIRES ARE IN THE CORRECT ORDER. You shouldn't have to disconnect the coil or replace it. Start the engine and set timing. With the simplest Team Rush upgrade, all you are doing is replacing the cap, rotor and spark plug wires.

So how do you know it's not working if you can't hook up the coil?

You don't have to pull the distributor for the team rush. Pull the old plug wires, cap and rotor. Put the new cap spacer, rotor and cap on and then the new plug wires (make sure you have them in the correct order). That's it.

I'm in my phone so I don't feel like looking it up but I think there is an adapter harness for using the stock canister coil with the team rush stuff. Try checking MSD's web site.

Also, you may want to look into doing a stealth hei to go with your team rush. No telling how long the stock ignition module will last after the TR.

The TR cap uses a different style of plug wire, so the coil does need to be disconnected. I'd suggest the OP google "team rush with stock coil". I bet that will answer their questions.

Yeah, I either need to get a Ford 300 coil or a different wire. I just made one fit, that might be the problem.

I 'll double check everything again. I've replaced stock components a few times, I know it's stupid simple, but ?

Thanks.

Maybe this is what you are looking for. Check out this thread:

My post quoted from page 2:

FYI - I also ordered this from Summit Racing to avoid splicing the coil wire to
the OEM style coil:

Got it. Had to read thru a few things and get my head out of my a55. I had the plug wires one off on the cap

The caps don't line up exactly, yada, yada.... I'm stupid.
She fired right up once I had it sorted!

Still gonna get either a wire or coil, regap plugs and generally clean things up a bit.

Thanks again.

Glad to hear you sorted it out. Keep her runnin'.
