The jeep has an ignition system and if it doesn’t ignite, so to speak, it don’t go!

The ignition system is a 6-volt system and consists of the spark-plugs, high and low-tension ignition wires, distributor, coil, and an ignition switch through which it is connected to the electrical system of the vehicle. There are two separate circuits in the ignition system (primary and secondary) which combine to develop the high-voltage current necessary to make a spark jump the plug gaps in the engine combustion chambers, and ignite the fuel mixture.
