I recently replaced the distributor in my rig with a new one and it seemed ok for a few minutes, started right up.....then stalled. I wasnt getting spark at first, so thats why I just went and replaced damn near everything. What got me is, why the heck it would start, run nice for two minutes...only to die out again. I think I found the problem, but am stil confused. It looks like the points contacts are misaligned. Not the points gap, but the actual contact alignment. The stationary contact..(the opposite of the contact on the arm), is actually hitting the arm right below the contact. I could see the that the metal has burn marks. This has got to be why she isnt running. Now, two questions: 1. What would cause this?...and 2. Is there a way to adjust this? Again, not the gap im talking about...the actual alignment. 1990 YJ with a 74 ignition.
