Hello everyone. I am new here but been building or trying to build a 1990 4banger to straight 6 conversion. been thru about 4 donors that never worked due to electrical stuff each time.
I just got a 1986 CJ7 carborated straight six engine 5speed which I want. Based on all the other problems I have had trying to get electronics to work I want to use this as my donor. Can I use this as a base to get rid of fuel injection (if an EMP ever hits I "should" be good) to go carborator - will I be able to get rid of the computer to power my dash with just the essential stuff or did I waste money buying it today?
I am no mechanic, I am a cyber security guy so laymens terms will help me out
Should work fine. Worst case ...eliminate the computer to the motor by going old school Hot Rod and use an MSD ignition, coil and distributor. Just hard wire it your self It’s not that hard. I have an 87 YJ that has the 4.2. When I got it electric was a mess. Solved those peons with MSD. Also I removed the “computer” totally on mine. Dash and gauges work fine. I added some gauges actually. Good luck. Enjoy.
