ok good news, i changed the spark plugs, wires, and wasn't getting spark, so i pulled the distributor and set the points and tried turning it over, still wasnt getting spark so i twisted the distributor around till i was getting spark, poured some gas in the old carb and she fired right up, running strong and has good oil pressure. so now i have to check the gas tank for leaks and set up a fuel pump.

Engine:
New cap, rotor, plugs, points, and condenser. Be sure to recheck the timing when your done setting the dwell. A great upgrade is an HEI ignition from a 76 Apollo with the 231 ODDFIRE. Speaking of the oddfire, do some research on the engine, as it has some ignition quirks you should be aware of.
Your CJ has an alternator upgrade. That is a good thing, however, I would dump the cheesy air cleaner for a larger, fully enclosed unit.
Most of this can be done with the body removed for easier access, however, I would solve any steering issues before pulling it.
It is a 12 volt system. Your currently running a delco internally regulated alternator, which isn't stock. It is however, a cheaper, and in my opinion, better replacement.
Back to your timing, Insure your rotor is under the #1 tower on the cap. While it will run if it isn't, it won't be right and you can have some frustrating times trying to sort out weak cylinders and misses.
