I will try to tell you all that is going on, and all that I have done.
I am about to go crazy,so Ihope someone can help....
It is a 64 kaiser willys jeep cj5 l-134 engine ,carter yf carb.
It started running very poorly, it would stutter when the gas pedal was pushed. I had to run it with the choke partly on to drive it.
then even that was not cutting it.
So I ordered a carb rebuild kit for it, and sure enough the accelerator pump rod would not even move inside. rebuilt it ,accelerator pump was functioning well now, all new gaskets ,new float etc.
While I was doing it , i ordered a tune up kit...capacitor,points,cap rotor,plugs(cap and rotor came a week later)
Put the carb on ,points,capacitor on...started right up and went down the road pretty well...
Parked it, and a few days later the cap and rotor came in and i installed them.....
Went to start it NOTHING,,,No Spark.(Pulled cap, no spark at the points at all).Seemed to be shorted inside the dist.although nothing was seen to be touching the casing...took the board out the the dis. and checked continuity and yep seemed to be shorted. took all parts off board and replaced ,.. new capacitor seems bad,,,put old cap back in and assembled...now I have spark, still will not run well,sputters and will not stay running.
gas flow to carb checked and seems to have good flow.
but will not run well, added gas to carb ,did not change.
Took carb back off and disasembled to be sure there was not a hole plugged etc. there was plenty of gas in the float bowl.
Recheck points gap , Still at 20.
A person told me that somtimes the newer points springs,would not close as fast as oem ones and cause it run bad. So I put the old points back in, old cap and rotor....ran good for 30 or so seconds.
so I thought FINALLY i have it...went to eat. Came back ,tried to start it and Same old same ,does not run hardly at all.
Oh I forgot to mention ,There is 12 volts to the coil and I replaced the coil.
I do not see any kind of vacuum leaks, I have wondered if the fuel pump may be part of the issue, but do not want to spend the 80 bucks,unless i have to...also adding gas directly to the carb does not help.?.!
I am losing my mind and need help...I hope I have listed all i have done. Please help
Ever since i was a little guy, I have had to take things apart to see what made them work, and usually I was able to put them back together.
