Ran... OK, low on power, but it has 35" tires, 3.50 gears in straight axles from a Ford (Dana 44 up front, 9" out back).
The day it died it started right up and drove 1/4 mile, turned off, then fired up five minutes later, drove 1/4 mile back to work and turned off. Maybe ten minutes later I go out to start it and it just spins. Called the wife to come get me. While waiting I listened for the fuel pump and couldn't hear it. Fuse is good, swapped AC relay for fuel pump relay, still no fire. Wife shows up and I go home.
Next day wife drops me off and I try to start it, it fires up and I drive it two miles to the store, then back. It starts sputtering about 400 feet from parking lot, then dies and I coast to a spot. The place it died is quieter than where it was - fuel pump does prime and fuel is spraying from TB. Checked timing and the mark on balancer was way off when rotor was above #1 pole. Replaced timing chain and sprockets and the mark and rotor are where they should be, still won't start.
Did a compression test on cylinders 1 and 4 and got only 60 psi cold in both. It's getting fuel and spark.
Here's everything replaced.
Timing chain and sprockets
Spark plugs and wires are good as are cap and rotor.
Is 60 psi too low to fire off?
It has over 243,000 miles and it has to be back on the road (it's my crawler) and thinking about doing a V8 swap, but just not a good time since we are building a house.
