Got mine running right before dark today!I struggled for about a hour and a half checking connections.It turned out my brand new fuel pump made the noise of working,but it was not pumping any fuel.Changed it out with another one and it fired right up.

I just need better linkage and an air filter/housing.

I have a 1971 Chevy 350 V8 from an El Camino Custom in my 1986 CJ7 and would like to put a FI system on it instead of the Rochester carb thats on there... What vehicle should I be looking at as a donor? CK1500?

Thanks

I usually wouldn't revive an old thread but as it is a sticky it needs some updating. The bustedjeep.com links do not work anymore, does anyone know if this info has been moved somewhere else?

Holy cow! Who managed to bring that back with the pictures?! I've seen the site archived without the pictures, but that's great that it's back up in its entirety.

Yikes, that junkyard TBI mod looks a little, umm, messy....but I've heard it's a decent way to go, if you have more desire than money.

Matt you need to come over next time I do a TBI conversion (mine are much tidier BTW). I can guarantee that you've spent more time researching your timing advance and carb jetting than you would on EFI.

Dude, I checked out of that TBI mod when they started hacking up the old wiring harness about a third of the way down the page.

I'm quite content with my old fogger, thank you.

That's why I spend the money on a harness ready to go. There are some things that are worth spending money on and that's one of them IMO.

Your fogger works well. Most people don't bother to actually learn how to set them up and are disappointed when they are perfect out of the box.

There were a couple I think John Strenk being one i believe was throwing around the idea of the MPI with a mega squirt controller and having it fire in batch mode.
I'm running a mpfi on my 79 cj. Top half of a '93 4.0. The harmonic balancer/CPS isn't completely necessary. I followed a plan posted by marty86cj where he cut a hole in the bell housing and mounted in the stock CPS in the standard position. Cevans in the yj forum has the definitive write up on this swap.

Did the swap for under $400. Best mod I've ever done!

CSP,

Your Father didn't raise any dummies.

I dunno, a quirky old carburetor just seems to fit on an old CJ, IMO. Let's face it, these things are the automotive equivalent of a T-rex. If I want to sleuth thru electrical/computer issues, I'll hold onto my Tundra for 30 years, then experience the joys of working on that stuff...
