1961_cj5_arvada2UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $2500

The buyer purchased this jeep a couple months ago, but has never gotten this v6 started.  Note:  it includes an overdrive.  This might be a good deal if the engine turns over and you can talk the seller down a bit (after all, it’s non running & needs new tires) on price.   Then go through this check list as these are the most likely issues:

  1. Is the carb getting gas? If not, the filter is likely plugged or the fuel pump is not working
  2. Is the distributor getting spark?  Pull a plug, leaving connected to the plug wire, set it against the block, and watch for a spark (easiest at night).
  3. If 1 & 2 are good, check and see if the distributor is simply backwards.  rotate the cap 180 degrees (or the wires — this happened to me this summer when finishing my engine build).
