can\'t get my cj7 running
I hope this msg isn't too boring for this newsgroup, but I need some advice please. My 1984 CJ-7 258 was sitting for about 3 months over the winter and now it doesn't want to start.
So far I know the starter works, the carb is getting fuel (I even tried starter fluid...), and there is spark (I held a screwdriver up to a spark plug wire and saw an arc). After these first few checks, I replaced the spark plugs, distributor cap, rotor and ohmed out the spark plug wires - all were between 4k-7kohms. When I try to start it, the engine just won't fire up, not even any backfires. However, stepping on the gas does rev up the engine while its trying to start.
Can someone help me figure out what to check next?
Thanks a bunch in advance!
