Ok, since I am taking the whole harness out. The black, orange, and purple on the distributor can be spliced to the black, orange and Purple on the ICM. The green from the ICM needs to be spliced into the trigger wire at the coil?
Why do the wires need to be twisted together?

Thanks sorry for the newbie questions. Been several years since I have really messed with the cj's.

The green is the coil negative wire. This controls when the coil fires.

You twist the orange and purple wires together so radio frequency (RF) emissions don't interfere with the pulses in the wires. Radios, alternators, spark plugs, cell telephones, all these things can send out radio waves that could interfere with a clean ignition signal and cause a miss in the engine.

I used insulated type SOW cable (commonly called 'cab tire' cable, covers anything) on a lot of them for this reason. The SOW wire has twisted wires inside with a paper and silk thread capacitor wrapped with them. All for RF insulation. Probably overkill, but I had the wire on hand from installing mobile data computers in delivery vehicles that were real touchy about RF.

Stock, AMC just twisted them, no issues.

Ok so let me get this straight. I have the Weber carb. So all I have to do is splice orange and purple wires from distributor to ICM and reset timing to 8* btdc? Do I have to do anything with vacuum hoses or anything else?

Not unless you want to. None of the emissions things will work except the gas tank vent ( canister), PCV and EGR but they can be left in place.

Hey guys. I am finally finishing up my bypass. What is the base timing for a 150 amc and are the notches 1 or 2 degrees.

Notches are 2° starting with +2 on the far right. Don't know the base timing for a 150, sorry.

What happened to my nutter

I have tried the nutter twice and still haven't got it right. When it comes time to set the timing I start the engine and it will only run for 3 manye 4 seconds then it just dies. No way I can keep it running long enough to time it. What am I doing wrong?

It should run at the old timing setting. Was it running well before you started this? Did it sit long enough for the gas filter to have dried out and plugged up? ( modern fuel gums up filters and seizes float needles if it evaporates away.)

Are you getting fuel to the carb?

Be aware that the hold down bolt for the distributor is the ignition ground path so if it is too loose or rusty you can have issues. Lots of folks ground that black wire coming from the distributor to be sure of a good ground.

You really should read the how to nutter bypass. You most certainly do Not lose your choke. All the nutter is is hooking the ICM direct to the distributor like a 1980 engine.

I did read it but the po did the nutter to my cj there are a lot of things missing I just assumed it was part of it I did a manual choke any way there was a lot of the harness was just sitting on my intake not connected I did all manual Gages too oh and I did have trouble cause the po did not time it after doing the nutter so when I checked the timing and timed it I had to get it warm to keep it running

Sounds more like a hacked job then a nuttered job. Done right they still pass the emissions sniffer and 'can' pass a visual if really needed. Everything a 1980 CJ had still works properly. Just the extra emissions and timing control ECU is bypassed.
