'83 to '03? AMC 150.4 cu in 2.5L I-4
« on: February 19, 2012, 06:36:03 PM »
Just a quick start here since I didn't see a forum for it (don't see one for the Iron Duke 2.5 either)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AMC_Straight-4_engine has the basics.

I feel that if AMC had put the EFI into the Eagle in '87 ('86 on the 4 cyl), sales would've taken off like the XJ did.


When they went to Renix TBI, the 4 cyl used the tone ring on a flexplate (see pic)



FOR SALE
'87 Comanche 4.0L AW4/NP242 3.73 gears, lifted 5" on near new 33" tires $3500 obo
'82 Eagle Wagon (Brown Betty) 4.2L/727/NP229 and soon 8.25 rear axle and non-vacuum 3.08 front to match. 235/75/15 tires. It's down to minor body work (someone creamed my driver's door but I have another in good shape) almost rust free and interior work (seats are worn and carpet torn). $2000 but about to go up due to more work being done.

4 cyl parts won't fit 4.0L and you'd need a Grand Cherokee flexplate from a '94 up 4.0L and 42RE to fit the 998 trans, but the converter may be different too (haven't checked with my trans parts warehouse guys)

(this probably needs moving to the other flexplate thread)
