88 4.0 timing is off or weird dist placement???
88 jeep Cherokee 4.0
I just bought this jeep and i'm going through a few things.
I noticed some black smoke on fast acceleration or just a quick pop to the pedal. To me that is running rich, probably bad fire.... right?
I changed the plugs and they were horrible. Well, I noticed the firing order is correct 153624, but on the distributor the number 1 wire is on the number 3 post. So i changed it to where the number 1 wire is on the bottom right post if you are looking from the passenger fender. Wouldn't start.... Changed it back to how it was... started right up... I guess they jumped timing when whoever rebuilt the motor? I haven't checked TDC yet, but i will tonight... Any suggestions, comments, ideas?
