I spent about 4 hours at the JY yesterday with the idea of pulling Neon injectors for the 4.0L swap. There is a ton of info about this swap, and I, apparently, had it swimming around in my head! The JY owner had 3 Neons, but only one had an engine. I easily pulled those injectors and I moved to the Stratus sitting next to it. It had the same 2.0L engine, so I pulled those injectors only to find they are single ported (one hole for atomization). So I left them there. I looked around for a 5.0 Ford, but I saw a line of Taurus cars. I have the impression that the injectors from the 3.0L Taurus is the Coup de Gras
, and I went after them. I had to remove the plenum on top of the engine to get at the injectors. It took awhile, but Hey, if you want the good stuff, you have to work for it... right? I managed to remove the first fuel rail only to find that these injectors, also, were single ported. Bummer! A total waste of time! So I went over to one of the dozen or so Cherokees sitting in the yard. I wanted a spare fuel rail. The 2nd XJ I checked still had one, with injectors, so I pulled it. I was thinking that these factory injectors would be better than what is on my son's XJ as he has a leak or two. I got out of there with 10 injectors and a fuel rail for $40, which I thought was outstanding!
And that brings us to this morning. I was going to change out the leaking injector (it leaks badly) with one of the XJ injectors on the fuel rail. I thought I would take pics for your viewing pleasure! But guess what? Total bust. Wrong connectors!! So I need to go back and read again. Here's the pics.
Neon injectors that I pulled.
Close up of the numbers.
Wrong connector! This is USCAR type. I didn't notice this.
Fuel rail from 4.0L with factory injectors.
Just a close up of the XJ injectors...
Showing the single port for atomization. Still XJ.
I'm betting this XJ ran poorly!!
This is also the USCAR connector. I need to go back and determine what year this changed. Plain stupid!
Fuel rail on my son's XJ. PB wouldn't let me rotate the pic!! Grrr...
This is number 4 from the front. It leaks like a sieve! I wanted to at least change this out.
Jet tronics/mini timer connector... what I have on the '90 XJ.
A comparison of the two together.
Back to the drawing board!
