Ignition gurus ?
HI all ,1980 CJ 258 TR upgrade ,including the TFI coil,
The problem I posted a while ago about has come back to haunt me
Driving along ,everything fine ,the engine will cut out, no sputtering like running out of gas.....fuel filter changed..... It just dies as in lack of power..
1 If you push the clutch in it stays shut off and needs restarting ...
2 If you leave the clutch in, or depress and let it out, It will restart itself just like jump starting it...
I took the distributer apart and tightened the ground screw inside there and checked for any obvious problems,like frayed wires or anything,put it back together and it ran fine till last weekend when it did it again. Now it seems worse.so could it be ? without replacing everything...
bad coil wire
sensor assembly in the dist.
something else I may be overlooking?
