This may be one of the most elborate questions ever posted and I appreciate your patience and any help that can be offered.
Long story short: I did the Nutter bypass on my 85CJ/258 about three years ago, after passing the smog test in MD. Eventually I replaced the Carter with a Weber and removed all the smog plumbing.
After putting off the smog police for as long as I could I reinstalled all the stuff--including the Carter BBD--and rewired the ignition.
Now it won't start.
The Nutter bypass is basically three wires different from factory and is pretty simple to reverse. I was sure to keep all wires at the ready just in case I was ever going to do this.
I went so far as to pull the plug from the computer and test to make sure that all circuits are going to where they are supposed to go. There is continuity between all points: computer, dist, ignition. And it just won't start. I went through most of the dignostics and the computer seems operational.
When I put the Nutter bypass config back it starts right up. So, It's not the distributor, it's not the ignition unit...
Any ideas? A few possible clues are three dangling connectors that, for the life of me, I cannot remember what they hook up to. They are all located directly behind the carb and I took pictures and have them posted here:
You can click on them for a larger view [I told ya this was elaborate]
I went through every box, shelf, drawer in my house to find some misc part that I've neglected to hook up and can't find anything.
Can anyone identiry those wires? I will grant Godlike status to anyone who can!
Sincere thanks in advance!!!!
