    I have these diagrams , they don't help without knowing the internal works of the ignition module.The module from the original 75 in a standard brand and the new ditributor is a delco I believe. The pickup on the new one has a three wire connector and the old one has a two wire different type connector.I need to know where the blue and yellow wires need to be connected to on the three wire (new) distributor connector.

Cj5 jeep ran fine every thing work now I don have head lights and no power to the starter no power

Start at the battery ground cable. Is it in good shape and on a clean ground connection. Work your way around to see if anything is loose or rubbed through on the frame. Check all the fuses in the fuse box. If you have a good DIY car pal get them to help, 2 sets of eyes is always useful.

You mean the crankshaft position sensor. Just follow your spark plug wires to the coil packs and ignition module. Then there will be two wires from ignition module to crankshaft position sensor which is in lower part of the engine block

How do you install a ignition control module in a 1999 Intrigue?

It should be on the front of the engine right by the coil. The coil is the thing which has 1 fat wire going to the distributor. Look at where the wires are that go into the coil, they will lead to the ignition.

Tach. operates in reverse

I have heard of this happening when the tach is wired to the coil incorrectly. Most (if not all) tachs call for the signal wire to be connected to the NEGATIVE side of the coil. Trace your wiring to/from your tach and go from there...

Troubleshooting fuel system for 1975 jeep cj5

Fuel pumps just supply fuel to the carb. Either they work or don't work. I would make sure that the mixture screws on the carb are set properly. Turn the screws in to lean out the mixture, do one at a time.
You want to turn the screws in to the point where the jeep will start to idle rough and then back out a 1/2 turn. Check your timing also. If the jeep has alot of miles on it, the timing chain will stretch and it's possible that you cannot get the correct timing.
