    it barely runs if at all sometimes, when it does run it runs very rough and backfires, sputters, and finally dies then won't start again. when i tried to just drive around the block, it wasn't having it. it also has a bad lifter and I can fix that. just can't seem to get it running good right now.

    check timing, plugs, wires, fuel delivery (fuel filter, pump and float bowl), points, condensor, cap & rotor. also make sure air filter is clean. if you have a spare coil, put that in there. i have seen several times in the past where a weak coil will mainfest it's self and look like it's a fuel problem, because the weak spark won't ignite the fuel. more often than not a coil will just fail.. but on occasion it will just barely work.

    What have you done so far to diagnose it? CJ's are awesome tow rigs.

    Shoot Bab (Randy) a PM from the board here. He is a mechanic by trade and lives in buckeye. He has done a lot of work for me. I would recommend him to anyone.
