It would be highly unlikely. IIRC 89s send full voltage to the coil while starting (bypassing the ballast resistor) but it's very uncommon for one to fail. It's not even a real discrete resistor,...

That's because the platinum was a rebadged Odyssey, basically the best battery you can buy for a car. They quit selling them after the new year, so now (when I need a battery) I have to shell out...

X2 on the battery. Sounds undersized or old. 8* is not enough to make it hard to start, unless the advance is sticking like Carnuck said. Mine is timed at 19* initial. I live at ~6200 ft but...

I had the muffler completely off of my '91 for a few days, and it was wonderful. Not great at medium RPM as the noise echoed between the body and the road, but at idle and WOT it was awesome. At...

And enjoy burning oil. Far worthier engines to swap than one of those.

Nope, the AMC bellhousing pattern is entirely unique. If you're looking for more power, your best bet is to get a 360, build it up, and then swap it for the 304 when you're ready. With a little bit...

It should chime when you have the key in the ignition and the door open. Perhaps the door sensor wire is messed up and setting it off randomly.

I think that's a good plan. I mean it's a pain to get down that far anyway, might as well do everything at once.

I hear you on the mileage. I was putting less than 1500 miles a year on mine. I...

Holy crap dude, even the worst timing belts last longer than that. I've never heard of any company recommending timing chain replacement before 120k. If I were still driving mine, I wouldn't be doing...

It'll be about the same. You might have all the wires needed present at a connector though, which could save some time.

That doesn't change the fact that it is still a SPDT relay. You might not use all terminals of a relay, but that doesn't make it SPST, it just means you're using it as one.

I'm always surprised that people like that dash so much. The 1986+ dashes have a much, much better heater/ac controller (and location) and the gauges are far more accurate. I guess the gauges...

That body looks really good for how badly the frame is rusted, except for the bottom of the tailgate. I wonder if it has been repaired in the past? Anywho, nice to see you've got a plan and you're...

I heard you had to pull the tailshaft out of a Dodge 727 and put it in the AMC case, but that could be wrong. Maybe they're the same. Oh, that's what blazer3664 already said.

The 5 pinners are SPDT actually. They have a NO (normally open) and a NC (normally closed) contact.

I wouldn't call the Mitsubishi starters small, they're really not much littler than the Ford ones. You'd have to find a flywheel for a middling 87 to 88 J truck with a manual, and that will not be...

V8 Excursions get the same mileage as FSJs. V10 Excursions get 8-14. Excursions weigh close to twice as much as FSJs. You're using the wrong SUV to compare to.

Welcome! There's something very unique about FSJs that draws us in like nothing else. That's a nice XJ, I'd hold onto it personally. Save up and get a project FSJ. You can definitely DD a FSJ, but...

serehill, you're thinking of 5 pin relays. Bosch type 4 pin relays are just SPNO.

If you can't find the three terminal relays you're looking for, rest assured, you're still in luck. You can wire 4 terminal relays to be the equivalent.

Probably not the VC. If you do the bearings, seals, and maybe the chain, you'll be good to go. Think about it, the VC doesn't have wear parts (it only breaks under abuse), and it's only in use a...
