Ok, guys... check this out... Just bought a 1987 YJ for next to nothing... Previous owner said it wouldnt run-said it was the timing... Well-anyways... Poured some gas down the carb-it started right up-runs great-no problem.. After getting all excited:smokin: I decide to drive this jewel... Release the emergency brake-The Jeep dies... Keep in mind that this ride has the venerable 258, so unexpected engine problems are always expected! Push the e-brake again-and it will runs...CRAZY ... Well-I've now determined that it will start with the brake released, only to rev up and die like you cut electrical power... Unhooked the wire that runs the indicator light on the dash- no difference.. Traced the cables to the rear drums-No interference... The lever mechanism itself is not touching any wires at all... Grounded the lever-no difference... Check the coil for power-It has 12v as long as the key is on-regardless of e-brake pedal position... Craziest thing ever... HELP?
