~3000 RENAULT engines were made for Europe(mainly to FRANCE), I believe few dozen are still on the road in bad shape...if you want to see a diesel one look at my restoration thread ...
I have no information about numbers of ISUZU made , they were exported worldwide
I don't know if they were sold in USA

Regards,

Gilles

It was my understanding that the EMP attack was just phase 1 with a follow up soon after.

I've lived through "duck and cover" and the air raid sirens going off on the last Friday of the month at 10:30 in the morning.

If you can find it, you can have my Jeep. The spare key is in the usual hiding place.

Look for the Cummins 4BD(?) conversion.

Best bet in the States.

Interesting. Never thought about the components in an alternator. With the limited info we (the sheeple) are given on EMP's, pretty much everything is speculation as far as what would and would not be affected......

EMP's are just electromagnetic pulses. Magnetic pulses wipe out data. Alternators are pretty dumb, no data to wipe out. Alternators make their own EMP field that you can hear in an improperly installed stereo.

One of those industrial vacuums or old uprights have been known to wipe out hard drives that were in desktop 'tower' cases on the floor from their EMP

Yeah, I don't think "solid state" components such as transistors, diodes, etc. would be effected by EMP.

Only those chips that are "programmable" and thus eraseable, etc.

So, I don't think that alternators, etc. would be impacted.

If I have a question on prepping strategy, I'll ask that question of the perceived "experts" on prepping.

Not trying to be a jerk, but I'm not here to discuss prepping strategy, I'm here to discuss Jeep CJs.

In other words the "how" not the "why".
Killer Response,
Who is to know what could happen in a EMP, either natural/man made, same but different, who's to say it won't burn out a condenser on your ole trusty points set up, maybe we could summon JH and he could set us all straight with a sermon on the effects of an EMP.
Meanwhile, back at the ranch,I'll just pack this spare HEI in my shielded amo box.

I keep gas cans full of ethanol free gas and add stabalizer to them. That way, if something happens (like the ice storm we had last week) I have fuel around the house. I use it in my small engines (ATV, generator, chainsaws, mowers, weedeater, outboard, hedge trimmers, etc) and twice a year I pour whatever's left in my vehicles and go fill with fresh gas.

If something really bad happened I wouldn't have enough to last for long, but I would have enough on hand to have options of moving somewhere safer if I need to, and in the meantime I have gas handy if I need it for whatever.

Nothing wrong with being prepared. I have extra ignition modules around just in case one blows on a Sunday when my local NAPA is closed. Not like they're expensive so why not keep spares around?

Same thing with gas. Why not keep it around, and pour it in your vehicle and refill the cans periodically to keep your supply fresh? Doesn't cost you anything extra, and you never know when you might need it.....

I guess I need to rig up one of those faraday cages just in case.....
