YOU did say the coil got "super hot" did you not?
"Super hot" = to hot to keep your hand on, correct?
"Super hot", is a sign of a dying coil....
Who made the coil? Lots of china crap coming in that is pure 110% CRAP.
That's why I only go to NAPA for those kind of parts.......
I've never had any luck with that big honking yellow coil. Others say it works good for them but never for me. Causing misfires and what not on my roadrunner.
Get a OEM coil and a new ICM and completely eliminate anything ignition related.
Let me guess though. The factory ford style coil connector is gone too.
Ignition problems mask and are similar to carb issues and its best to eliminate the ignition side first.
There should be no fuel dripping out of those upward turning brass tubes in the center of the Venturi's. that needs resolved.
Its easily you have two seperate issues.
Do you have a test light? If so you also need to ensure your not putting full voltage on the ignition coil while the engine is running no matter who made it.
Its easily done by putting the clip to a ground and probing the battery and noting how bright the bulb is, then probe the plus terminal of the ignition coil and ensuring its not bright like it was on the battery.
A volt meter is just as easy. You want to see 6 to 9vdc when the black probe is on negative battery terminal and the red probe is on the plus of the ignition coil.
i checked the voltage and it was getting about 3.75 to 4. Also i noticed the choke was getting super hot, almost as soon as the car was turned on and the choke would open right up. So i checked the power to that and it was 12 constant.
To get more output on a coil they would design it to pass more current. Unfortunately in a ballast setup like ours, that means the voltage is lower on the primary side. So lower input voltage lower output voltage. Maybe not enough to fire a plug consistently causing you to raise the idle speed, causing the main circuit to dribble gas. It's a vicious circle.
Trying to pass more current through the coil will only burn up the cheap ICM that are available these days.
One is most definatly the fuel dripping out the Venturi cluster. The other is a possible bad ICM.
Its not a bad idea to buy a new ICM and (a BDW or napa brand) slap it in the jeep. Pull your Venturi cluster and clean it good and start over.
With dirt in the tubes its most likely also in the fuel bowl to be sucked into them again with making the holes in the tubes bigger. My YouTube channel "EugeneKingify" has a video of how to drill them out.
