controls in a CJ. Yup, want to know when there were ignition points, a carb with no electric stuff on it (maybe electric heater on choke), alternator with non-computer regulator, mechanical fuel pump.
Thinking about buying an "old school" CJ and want old style electrical equipment.

THanks

For CJ's that would be 1972-73 for points in a distributor, 1982 for a non feedback carb, 1986 for a mechanical fuel pump, and 1986 for a non computer controlled alternator.

You can always switch anything distributor on any CJ to points but why? There is no increase in reliability in running with points. It doesn't make it easier to tune up. Are you worried about an EMI burst? I've worked with points for years and was happy when they came out with electronic ignition. Computer controlled electronic ignition is great also. I think theywent a little overbard with computers in the jeep Liberty though.

Jump on the 80-82 years. Electronic ignition (very good) and a simple non-computer controlled carb. Narrow track axles are a bummer but easier to change (legaly) than computer and emmision things.
