I'm probably nuts, but have decided to stay carburated. I have posted my parts for sale or trade in this forums classified section, but wanted to briefly mention it here. Hope you all don't mind. I just want this stuff to go to a more needy person. I will trade all parts needed except CPS kit for a new carburator solution. My BBD is shot, so prefer Webber. I said I would keep it brief, so there you go. VFRPiperpilot@aol.com

I'm looking at a pile of Cherokee components and trying to identify the wiring as usable. If the o2 sensor is in the header is it the earlier(Renix) system and harness?? If I'm correct the '91 and later 4.0 systems have the o2 sensor in the head pipe between the factory header and catalytic convertor. I don't want to get the wrong parts...
Yeah, I agree that the fuel injected 4.0 beats the 4.2 anyday. My wife's 86 CJ threw a rod on the 4.2, and the shop that sent me a reman motor sent me a 4.0 instead. I bit the bullet and ripped everything I could get my hands on out of a 92 Cherokee (since there is no such thing as a totaled Wrangler!) and other than working through a few bugs, it runs better and gets much better gas mileage. Thanks for the new thread - I'll be following along as well.
i have Haynes manuals for my xj and cj. they suck for the most part. order a FSM (Full Service Manual.) for wiring it's the only way to go and should cover the engine rebuild better than any part store repair manual.
I got a question about passing the smog test in California. I have an 83 CJ7 that I am planning on converting to a 4.0 head with MPFI from a 91 Cherokee. I will have all of the parts from the Cherokee. My question is what problems will I face in trying to get it to pass smog in California? I live in Nevada and they don't care, just as long as the sniffer test is OK. I searched on the California DMV web site but it was useless. Any info is appreciated. Thanks. Dustin.

it seems like half of my answers are go to www.cjoffroad.com . go to their 4.0 swap forum. 80% of the people on it are in Cali. if anyone can answer your Cali smog question they can. i'm not trying to run everyone off but reading that forum is where i got all my answers.
