I have a 1966 cj5 with the six cylinder. It has not been driven for many years and my son and I have been trying to get it going for him. We have had a lot to do: wiring brakes, missing lights, new seats, seat belts, etc. It is about ready to go, but still does not run well. It is especially hard to start when cold. The vacuum advance was non functional, so I have been trying to figure out the best solution. I studied on putting in an HEI, but kept reading about how the gear on the distributor can ruin a gear in the motor, which put me off of that idea, at least until I can get better info. Finally, I just bought a new vacuum advance and installed it. However, I'm having a couple issues getting the distributor back together. I have spent a lot of time searching for answers but finally decided to post. The wire that goes from the vacuum advance to the distributor (looks like it might be a ground wire) is broken and scorched and needs to be replaced. It was crimped in place. I'm not sure how to replace that. Can I just solder it to the plate? or maybe drill can tap the distributor plate and screw it on? I cannot find a good tutorial on how to reinstall and set the points, something I have never done. I have read a lot about the oddities of the odd fire distributor. However, a lot of the pictures that might have been helpful in identifying what distributor I have are no longer available to view. The points and distributor cap are one of the few things on the jeep that looked newish. But I am wondering if they are the right ones, especially seeing as the distributor is numbered, but the numbers identifying the leads rotate in the opposite direction of what they are supposed to. I am going to post some pictures and if someone would be able to identify which distributor we have and if the parts are the right ones for this engine, that would be a big help.
