Howell TBI Install Video

Hey Everyone:

I just finished an install of the Howell fuel injection system on my 1990 YJ. It started right up afterwards, so I guess I did it right!

Anyway, I wanted to give back to all the Jeepers who have helped me over the years, so I made a 26 minute video explaining the whole install process and showing some of the things I ran into during the install. Here's the link:

If anybody has questions in the future, I'll try to answer them.

Im gonna use this to straighten out the wiring mess I have. The people I got the motor from didnt take much care in making a neat install. Hopefully it still works when im done.

John that is a great video. I added it to my long list of bookmarks. Just guessing but I am betting that you are a teacher or have a job dealing with the public. You are very well spoken in the video. Thank you for the post!

x2 but I think you have more patience than I do.. my theory? cut wires can always be re-soldered..

Great video!

Nice video. Hopefully it will be of help in the future for those doing the Howell conversion.

The Howell installation manual does leave much to be desired for a person who has never done the install before. After the install, it makes perfect sense, but that's not when you really need the instructions.

That's exactly right. Most of the information is there, but the format, layout, word choice and organization of the documentation is pretty bad. I actually emailed the company offering to revamp the documentation for them since I'm both a writer and a photographer, but no word back.
