Question about 1985 Jeep CJ7
Hey, im not mechanic so help me out if you can. i have a 1985 cj7 with the 4 banger. just got it, and it ran well enough, but i wanted to tune it up. replaced the distributor cap, button/rotor and plug wires. i may have screwed up and put the wires out of order on the cap and started it up. of course it would not run. replaced the wires in the correct manner (per haynes), and it ran really really rough at low RPMs. i switched everything back to the original wires, cap and button, and it still runs poorly at lower RPMs. i have since replaced the plugs with an upper grade plug, and it still is rough. I pulled the plugs, and #2 was pretty mucked up--after about 100 miles. cleaned it, and she still runs pretty poorly. poor response, rough idle, just plain old rough. at 2000 or higher (estimated) RPMs, it seems just fine.
did i screw up a cylinder by mixing up the spark order, or ???. i thought maybe i had the wrong cap/button, but even after going back to the old ones it still was rough. what do you think? any help is greatly appreciated.
