    Remove plug on #1 cylinder, slowly turn it over with your thumb in the hole. Make sure it's actually on TDC for #1 not 180 degrees out ( would be on #4 then). Air will blow out your finger if you're actually on #1.

    Thanks exhogflyer for your post, Today I checked #1 and every time the air blew, I glanced at the rotor position it was pointing toward #4 plug post. Also checked it numerous times in the last several days but arranging the plug wire accordingly the Jeep still would not start.

    Received a post from NDT this morning about placing #1 wire where the rotor was pointing after TDC compression stroke on #1 cylinder. I placed them CCW 1-3-4-2...the engine made it's first sign of trying to start. Two more tries and she fired right up. Starts every time now, haven't done a test drive yet because I still have some wires to button up before placing the panel back in position.

    What a relief...Thanks to everyone who helped me achieve this. Charles

    Awesome to hear that simple fix worked, i have to admit, i probably wouldn't of have thought of just moving the wires. Do suggest though, when you do messing with your pump or distributor again, to time the pump correctly. That way it will match manual and no one else will get confused in future. It only takes about 10-15 min to time the pump, not hard.

    And remember, on these you'll have to re-prime the oil pump after re-indexing it. Pack it with grease.

    Okay, Thanks clinto, I hadn't thought about packing it with grease.

    I personally like to pack with Vaseline, its light weight, doesn't drip everywhere and returns back to oil when hot oil mixes.

    I have a jar that has been here forever...sounds like a good way to get some use out of it,

    especially if it breaks down and is harmless. Thanks!

    Another way to do that is simply overfill the crankcase so oil is at pump level. Start engine and as soon as you have oil pressure, shut it off and drain excess.

    Okay, might go that route, one thing that happened in all of this was the oil gauge ceramic pieces separated in the gauge, so have to pick a new one up. The needle doesn't

    have room to swing due to the pieces.
