When I swapped my motors I needed to get an external regulator so the alternator would recharge the battery like my 90 motor did. I believe I used a Ford external regulator. I can get the part number if needed along with how i hooked it up.

Because of this post i am know back on the road and loveing the jeep again .Only thing know is the engine light is on not a bad thing it's been on since i bought the jeepI'm use to nothing a little length off black electrical tape can't fix .My hat is off to you all ,thank you very much ,all smiles for now VinVanGo
Is there a way to have an external regulator with out the check engine light on?

No. The ecu checks the signal.

Hey guys sorry to dig up such an old thread, but has anyone tried this kit?

Looks like it may be a solution to the CEL issue
