C-7 FI problems

I've found 2-CJ-7s. I has the usual Carter carb problems. The other has a AMC 258 i6 / 4.2l w/ Tech II FI. She'll idle, but dies when a load is applied. Any ideas what the problem might be? The owner sent the coil pack(?) back to the mfg & was told it was ok. Both these 7s are otherwise mechanically sound, but have a lot of rot. Frames are in good shape. It's a pkg deal, both or none. Just trying to figure out how much to offer.
Hey CD! Glad to have you back! :)

It sounds like the typical clogged injector syndrome. Did the 7 run before? Has it set and the fuel turn to lacquer? The TB injectors can be clean pretty easily (or replaced).
