Does my 77 cj7 have a CPS? If so, hwere is it? (bellhousing?)

Symptom: She tried to buck me off yesterday.
Changing the CPS seems to be the common response for the Cherokee owners, but I can't find the topic in my Chilton's manual for the 77 cj7 or in a CJ forum.

Bucked= driving normally down the strret when she suddenly without warning DIED then restarted self. There's been a few intermittent tiny bucks throughout the weeks leading up to now but nothing to "fret" about. Now she's a real rodeo. I guess I should have fretted over the small stuff afterall.

Also, because she was going in a straight line and it was daytime, I have no idea whether or not the steering wheel locked up when she died and or if the lights went out and etc. Speaking of steering wheels locking up upon CPS failures, is there a way to BYPASS the lock?

Noobie and full of all kinds of questions but will stop for now and let you catch your wind.
Thanks in advance in case I forget my pw and or have to use another pc when this one crashes again.

PS. She has a 304 v8 amc.

If she has a CPS, where is it located?

When did the CPS first come out for jeeps?

It shouldn't have a CPS - they're used in fuel injected engines and typically found on the bellhousing.

That explains why it was so hard to find. lol.

We ended up cleaning the TPS ground connection, the battery connections, etc.. and she is now behaving like her old self again. Full of vinegar without the bucking.

Thank you for answering or we'd still be scratching our heads while searching for that cps that doesn't exist.
