Pretty new to this forum so don't roast me... Just recently rebuilt my 89 2.5L wrangler yj with a rebuild kit i got off ebay. Been having some issues with the distributor. First start up it ran great, sounded great, but once I decided to take it around the block and went about 5 miles the jeep died. Towed it back pulled the distributor and the gears were ground down to almost nothing.. Decided to throw a new distributor back in to see if it would fix the problem and the same thing happened after driving it the exact same distance as I drove before.. Not sure of the problem. I feel like it might have something to do with the camshaft. I have replaced the cap and rotor, spark wires, spark plugs, oil pump, etc. It seems like the timings right as to my knowledge with these engines the motor wont start if you have the timing even one gear off.. Any responses will help!
