Hey everyone. I just bought a 80 cj7 with a 4.2 automatic Saturday. On my way home (45 miles) I noticed a strong smell like it was running really rich, It doesn't have an air filter on it so I'm thinking that can be part of that problem, along with a carb adjustment.
2nd thing about 5 miles from home it started loosing power and almost stalled out. If I put it in neutral it would rev fine, but in gear it would bog down and die. Did this twice and after sitting for a few minutes it would start back up and run fine for a few miles. --- I found an accel coil with the wires just wrapped around the post bearly attached. I plan to move the coil to a better location and replace those wires and put on connectors so I can hook it up the right way
3rd thing. When accelerating from a stop it would shutter/vibrate, almost like it had bad axle wrap. so I had to let off and slowly speed up it would be ok.
Any ideas on these 3 problems do far?
Thanks for any help
