We found a 258 engine thatís supposed to be an í84 or í85 thatís been
in a 1978 CJ body since a past swap. We
want to put it in a 1986 CJ body. (The original Ď86 engine is dead.)
What trouble will we have? Already know about an air vent solenoid on the back of the 1986 engine that isnít on the engine from the í78. (Weíll have to use the í86 carb.) Anything else to worry about? We can transfer the bellhousing and trany from the original engine. Will we have distributor troubles because of a different electronic ignition? The engine we're getting is already out of the vehicle so I don't know what the ignition module was. Can I figure that if it plugs in, itíll work? What am I not aware of?
Thanks for any info anyone can provide!!
