    So I’m rebuilding my T176 transmission and I just got the Dana out. I’m now onto pulling the trans and from a video I watched it seems like a need to support the engine when pulling the trans because of it only having two motor mounts and the third mount being the trans on the cross member. How...

    So if you have been following my discussions lately you would know that I am trying to make this 304 run good! Recently I have had a MC2100 carb on the 304 and it ran well except for a backfire and bogging from idle to WOT in neutral and while driving. Now I decided to put the Edelbrock 1406...

    So I got my 304 running good at idle and it’s drives smooth. The only problem I am having right now is backfire out the carb and bogging when I do a hard acceleration from idle. I’ve boiled it down to timing and I’m wondering what the timing on a stock 304 is, initial and total? I’ve had it at...

    So recently I had a MC2100 on my 304 and it ran well except for it backfiring and bogging when accelerating more than nothing. I had an Edelbrock 1406 laying around and decided to rebuild it. Followed a video and pretty sure I did it right. Slapped the 1406 on the 304, no spacer and correct...

    Any recommendations for a water pump for my ‘72 CJ5 304 V8? Should I get high flow water pump or stick with an OEM? I have also had a few people tell me to remove the thermostat when I put a new water pump on. Any thoughts on the T-stat? Any recommendations is greatly appreciated. Thanks,

    So I just got this 85 CJ7 with a 304 amc in it. This is my first amc engine, and first one I've done really anything with. I know enough about engines to build them, but not enough to hook them up really. So my problem is that recently I replaced the cam and lifters because I had a flattened cam...

    So I just got this 85 cj7 with a 304 in it and the PO said there was some knock last time he started it. When I removed the valve covers and tried to crank it the front right 1st valve wasn’t moving at all. Removed the rocker and pushed on the rod to see if it was set and it was springy, like it...

    I'm planning on pulling and rebuilding my 304 out of my 79 CJ-5 and was planning on installing Edelbrock's new ProFlo4 multi-port injection system. I see they're finally on the market and was trying to see if anyone has purchased one yet. Thoughts? Thanks

    Hey guys, had great luck on the forum before so figured id try it again. Just finished putting a 304 into my cj7 and took it out for a test drive. I heard a grinding sort of noise in the transmission when it was moving even coasting in neutral. I took it back after only about a tenth of a mile...

    I have a 1978 CJ7 with the 304 V8. It has an Edelbrock 4 barrel carb and it has always taken a LONG time to crank, like it was fuel starved. Over a year or so, I replaced the fuel pump and all of the fuel lines going back to the tank. I found a leak in the fuel line back near the tank and I...

    I've never restored any vehicle before let alone done any major work further than changing brakes. I have, however, grown up around a family that used to practice restorations quite frequently. Unfortunately, time catches up to us all and a lot of vehicles either collect dust or weeds now. Out...

    through the many hours spent searching on Craigslist for parts for my Tj build, I stumbled upon a new project. I guess one project vehicle is not enough. It is a 1978 CJ7 Renegade with the AMC 304 V8 and a 3 speed transmission. It also has the levi's interior package although its missing the...

    Hello I recently purchased a 1985 Jeep CJ7 that had been modified with a 304 AMC motor - Question is there is a hose hooked to a vac port on the back of the motorcraft 2150 carb that was connected to a port at the back of the manifold. The hose had a pcv valve midtream. The engine ran rough and...

    After 1 year of not owning a Jeep, I couldn't stand it anymore. I needed something to work on in the garage so I just picked up a '72 Jeep J2000 off Craigslist for $950 (guy was asking $1300)! She looks rough but she has a running engine, frame is solid, good tires, and it just has the cool...

    I seem to have found a 304 V8 engine for $100. My question is will it fit into my 76 CJ7 that currently holds a 232 i6? I understand in theory it will, but do I need to make modifications to make this happen?

    My wife and family surprise me with this 78 CJ-5 that I had been interested in. The jeep is in pretty good condition but in need of some TLC and a few upgrades. After a little wheeling at the beach we took her back to Bend Oregon

    Hi, I'm back! You guys helped me figure out I'd burned out my ignition coil when my Jeep wouldn't start two weeks ago. In the time since then I've driven it nearly every day. It runs really well...when it's warmed up. Here's what it's doing. Some of it may be just normal old carb engine...

    Let me first start off by saying the truck avenger has been very reliable and I am not bashing it in any way. I only drive my jeep on the weekends, so it usually sits for 5 to 6 days at a time between starts. Over the past three weekends, the engine has done the exact thing. I get in the jeep...

    I currently have a pair of rusted out fender well exit headers on my 79CJ5. The mufflers are 18” glass packs welded to the back of the headers. I was able to trade some stuff I had sitting around this weekend for a set of slightly used set of fender well headers. I would like some feedback from...
