engine or ignition problem?

My 84 CJ-7 won't turn off. The only way I can get the engine to stop is to crank the ignition (which make the horrible grinding noise). Most of the time, after I do this I don't have them problem again. I replaced the ignition switch with a replacement switch I had lying around. But it still won't shut off.
Anyone have a suggestion?
