many parts later...it still won\'t run

My Samurai died on the trail and apparently does not want to be recessitated. I have checked the timing belt...it is in tact and the cam appears to still be in time. I have swapped distributors and computers with another 88.5 samurai. I have replaced cap, rotor, plug wires, and plugs. I have moved timing all over the place....the best that it wants to do is pop in the exhaust.

Does anyone have any other suggestions?

Is it still getting a weak spark?

Sounds like your timing belt is still off.

Flipper,
Coming in late here-- it takes two things to make the engine run: spark & fuel. You are SURE you're getting enough fuel= checked filter?
If you are certain it's electrical, perhaps the coil or ground at the distrubutor?

Could also be a bad ballest resister?

Hey Everybody,
Flipper just contacted me & his Samurai is all better now-- turns out his timing belt tensioner had a problem. Detail, details!

Yep, it runs now. The spring from the tensioner broke and fell down between the timing belt and the crank gear....alowing the cam to jump time by a couple of teeth. To everyone that replied, thanks for the advice.

Darn, and I was going to start the bidding at $50 bucks, to take it off your hands.
