Re: Old Jeep Joys
Well, Jim, the first thing I'd check is the ICM.
Since I've had the CJ:
1. With the original 151, it wouldn't start after I turned it off at a gas station after running on the interstate. 45 min. later, it started just fine.
2. When I dropped in the 360, the rubber fuel line connecting two hard lines was rubbing against the valve cover and wore through. Unfortunately, this happened at 11:00pm in the middle of nowhere along I-10 outside of Baton Rouge. Walking 3 miles down the interstate late at night sucks. I got a friend to tow me to his apartment, and we figured it out the next day after 2 trips to the parts store and a new mech. fuel pump!
3. This is actually being stranded about four times, but all for the same evasive reason. Once I dropped in the 360, it would die at red lights for no apparent reason. Sometimes it would start back up, sometimes it wouldn't. It was either b/c of something with the coil and voltage regulator, vapor lock or the ICM. To this day I haven't figured it out.
4. I've also been through about four ICM's in as many years.
