Post Nutter Questions

I have finished the nutter bypass on my 88 YJ. Unplugged and remove the ECU afterwards, started the Jeep. Never ran better than it does now, amazing. I went ahead and removed the damn computer altogether and traced and removed all wires that were connected to it. I still have to splice together any bundles that I had to cut to get the computer wire out of the mix. Then start it again to see if all is working.

Should I leave the O2 sensors in the exhaust manifold and the top of the tail pipe fitting in or remove them and plug the holes. The computer was wired to them therefore I am assuming with a truly mechanical set up they do nothing.

Leave it or plug it, doesn't matter. It isn't connected to anything so it won't matter.

The O2 sensor can still be used with a meter to read A/F ratio on your carb. Even if you don't use it, it hurts nothing just to leave the sensor in the bung.

Some folks leave them to help with setting the mix. They look for .45- .6v on a meter if I remember right. Range is .1-.9 I think.

Some folks also wire the solvac to a fused powered switch so they have a manual fast idle for things like winching or boosting.

I have the solvac wired to a toggle switch. It's really handy for when it is very cold (below 10 degrees F) to keep the idle high until it is warmed up.
