Yes it looks like that.

Siva283- is there a difference in performance or is one better than the other? If you really don't mind that would be awesome. I can pay shipping, it's no big deal. How hard are they to pull and install? Always been kinda nervous about pulling the dizzy...you have to set the timing once you replace it?

I will get it from storage Saturday and can send it Monday we can PM the details. I get further discounts if there is a business address I can send it to but if not no worries. I dont think there is any performance increase its just easier to replace parts and it seems to be liked better than the older bigger dizzy for this reason.

Changing it isnt hard. The bottom is slotted for the oil pump drive so if the slot is oriented different you may need to use a screw driver to spin the oil pump shaft a little at a time until it lines up. So before you start look at where the rotor is pointing. Orient the new one to point in the same spot thats all there is to setting the timing part of it. Once you have the rotor oriented correctly on the new one mark it. Now take the old one out and slide the new one in. Tighten the bolt on the hold down and hook up the sensor and wires. I am still half asleep so if this doesnt make sense let me know and I will try to explain it better with more detail.

Actually if you pull the old distributor you do not need to bring the engine up to TDC.
#1 Remove the cap.

#2 NOTE GENERAL POSITION OF THE ROTOR...VERY IMPORTANT! MARK THE BASE OF THE DISTRIBUTOR.

#3 Once pulled note where the rotor ENDED UP. It will move a little bit while disengaging the helical cut gear at the bottom of the distributor from the matching gear on the camshaft. MARK IT AGAIN. Make sure you make a different mark a second time.

#4 Position the rotor in the new distributor in the same position your old rotor was after you pulled it out.

#5 GENTLY slide the new distributor in. When it begins to engage the oil pump shaft the helical cut gear will also engage the matching gear on the cam shaft. The rotor will move forward a little.

#6 Pop on the cap.

Keep in mind an engine is always in time but not necessarily on TDC of #1 or any other given cylinder for that matter. As long as you do not disturb the engine during the distributor swap and you orientate your new distributor rotor like the old one was will be OK.

This is what I was trying to say basically. Though not as eloquently guess I was a little more than half asleep.

Tap the roll pin out of the distributor drive gear which holds it onto the distributor shaft.. Remove the gear. Now the shaft should slide out of the distributor body.

NOTE the position of all the parts.

Ok. So I just went and bought a new dizzy ( it was $6 more than the sensor I was trying to replace) and the problem is still there...still hesitates when you goose it while idling and backfires on the highway. Any other suggestions??

Ok this is a long shot but I had some of the same type of things going on.
Even though mine is a 4.0L it was built in the same year.
Apparently mine was built in the later part of 93, so they used a 94/95 distributor.
When using the 93 distributor mine acted pretty much the same as yours.
Put a 95 distributor and have not had a problem since.
93 distributor If you look at the last picture of the distibutor it looks like the one you have in your Jeep. (top view)
http://www.autozone.com/autozone/par...fier=88490_0_0_
Now look at the top view of the 95.
I think this is the one that probably came stock in your Jeep.

http://www.autozone.com/autozone/par...er=176435_0_0_
Just take the new one out that you installed and change it for a 95.
It is worth a shot and will not cost you anything.

So is it a defective distributor for that year? Surely it hasn't been running this way for the PO...it has 120k miles on it...
