Since the engine ran somewhat well, I knew a standard tune-up couldn't hurt, considering the Jeep had been sitting for 15 years out in the open. Plug wires only last two years when new, and UV rays can kill a distributor cap when exposed to sunlight. Plus, I had originally wire-wheeled the rust and crud off the sparkplugs instead of replacing them, and I knew a carb kit wouldn't hurt either. A quick trip to the local auto parts store netted a bill of $73.53 for wires, plugs, cap, rotor, carb kit, engine oil flush, oil, filter, fuel filter, carb spray, blue towels, and hand cleaner. After an afternoon of wrenching, draining, bleeding, and rebuilding, the Salvage 7 ran much better.
