This is my first project car and im strating to get frustrated, i need advice!!
I am working on a 1984 CJ7 4.2L 258 recently it just died on me wouldnt start up, so what I did was order an HEI distributor thinking I might as well get rid of the computer all together and elminate that problem (at least thats what i was told i could do?)
I have replaced the following:
Battery cables to solenoid/ to starter from solenoid
Spark plug wires
And i have a new CARB coming tomorrow
My issue now is that it will NOT crank over whatsoever and I have no power to anything, headlights, turn signals, wipers, Nothing! and I cant for the life of me figure out why. Everything is new.
However before I installed the new HEI I could at least attempt to crank it over (nothing would happen, but it would try too) Not sure if i had power or not then, it was kinda sitting for a week before I got the HEI and didnt really notice.
Ive had many people tell me they think its the Fusbile Link, whats your opinion?
And if so any good explanation as how to replace other then follow the wire and disconnect and replace with a new one, or is it just that simple?
Or could it be something else?
Someone please help!!
Just a reminder there is NO longer a computer.
Thanks a bunch,
