so im really confused, i wired my electric choke on the cj, its a edelbrock, so anyway, i wired it up, positive to the coil and then negative to ground, then started it up, and it started, like normally, so it warmed up, then i turned it off to clean up the wiring and when i went to start it up again, it wouldnt start, so right away thinking, just my luck, great, so i unhooked the wires off the choke, tried starting it again, nothing, it turns over but dosent fire, great :mad:, checked for spark, got spark, checked for fuel, its got fuel, i even put fuel down the carb a bit, nothing, so i got spark, got fuel, and it still wont start, i dont know what happened, but i got the battery charger on the truck right now to charge the battery up, then im gonna try tinkering with it a bit later, looking at the distributor pick up coil, and the wires were kinda cracked and nasty so i quickly re wired the plug ends, and still nothing, sooo i dunno what the hell is going on with it, im gonna see if i can borrow a buddys coil and try that, anyone else have any issues like this?

its got duraspark ignition on it,
