Official AMC V8 swap thread/Need more
I pulled 304 and 3sp trans from 74 CJ5. I put them in a 84 CJ7 after removing the AMC 150 and 5sp. I used the frame and block mounts from the CJ5 and installed everything in the 84 CJ7. The Official AMC V8 swap thread told me all about the mounts. It worked out great. I also read that my ignition setup is not compatable. I plan to use the HEI. Does anyone know where I can find wiring diagrams for the HEI and Nutter Bypass? I plan to remove the computer and all the other unnesessary wiring from the engine compartment but want to keep intact all the nesessary wiring for gauges. Also the 84 CJ7 has a 4" lift (springs under axle) and I need any info on driveshaft replacements. I have the shafts from both the 74 CJ5 and 84 CJ7. I believe the shafts from the 84 had been modified. Both CJ's have the original axles under them. I may swap them out later. I seem to remember reading here that my stock 84 axles may not hold up well with the 304. Also read the why my steering wanders writeup. That comes after I get it running. Any help is appreciated.
