Re: Help!!! 1972 CJ5 304 V8

Do you have a repair manual? Look for a section that shows you how to check for spark. Check to make sure your getting air into the carb (choke isn't stuck), check to make sure fuel is getting into the intake (take the air filter off and pull down the throttle on the carb while looking inside the carb to see the fuel squirt), do this with the engine off of course. Then check for spark if you have air and fuel. It could be a number of things if there is no spark, lose or broken wiring, dead coil, pick-up coil problem, ICM's all fairly easy to fix though. Get a manual if you don't have one...try to follow it and if you need clarifcation on something......come back here. We need more info to help.
