Guys,

Apparently a previous owner of my CJ converted the entire ignition system over to a ford system (I assume becuase of the lack of OEM Jeep parts for the 2.5l AMC). We only discovered that after order two different distributors that physically fit in the engine and gearing was correct, but the wiring wasnt right becuase it was designed to hook up to the jeep ignition system.

My question is: Does anyone know my chance which of the Ford Motorcraft 4cyl distributors fits the AMC 2.5l on a 1985 CJ7? We tried using the serial number on the bad one we pulled out but the one we got had mismatched gears that were too high and so it didnt fit.

Kind of at a loss here so any help is much appreciated.

What would it take to just convert the entire ignition system to something new? Is that even possible on a 2.5l AMC? Does anyone know where to find that?

Thanks so much!

Was the distributor not working when you bought the truck?

Just interested why you need to change it.
