If its a Dave's its a good shaft. Shoot me a price and some specs.

Keep in mind I built a whole Jeep. I could do a truck conversion in a couple months tops with a running/driving Jeep

Soooo, I am now trying to get the jeep to fire on the proper cyclider at the right time.


All the google images look the same, then I find a picture that's a prong off on the distributor cap.

Any suggestions?


Edit: I think I have it 180 degree out? Ideas?

It cranks, fires, puffs, blows fire out the header, and really tries to start. But just seems to be out of time.

turn engine over slowly with the number 1 sparkplug out and hold your finger of the hole so you can feel when it's on it compression stroke.
Then line up timing mark see where the rotor points that's were the number 1 wire goes then check rotor rotation and use proper firing order 153624

Also did you compare timing notches on the stock flywheel and the flexplate / ring gear you used for the aw4?

Updated list.

I have a good pedal, but I have a leak at the booster when my wife compresses the pedal. Once I figure out the firing/timing issue she will be drivable with driveshafts installed.

Got the number 1 up, on TDC. (0) on the timing mark. Problem is I think it's 180 out, soon as I get back out to the garage I am going to check for compression stroke and see where the rotor points on the distributor.

As far as the AW4 it's all the parts from a 2000 model.

Thanks Art.



Found this:


Pull distributor:

Rotate the crank till the timing mark on the harmonic balancer is aligned to the "0" on the timing cover scale on compression stroke.
Take a long reg tip screwdriver and insert it into where the distributor sits, turn the oil pump shaft till the flat edge points to the 11 o'clock position.
Drop the dist in and tighten down.
Install rotor button, it should be pointing to #1 cylinder on cap. Install cap and double check the firing order. 1-5-3-6-2-4 clockwise rotation.
Make sure the hole in the cam sensor lines up with the hole in the distributor
