Awesome idea, I fully support this. Just change the date to 1991 and we'll all be happy :) Or at the very least, exempt cars past a certain age from the visual check and just measure tailpipe...

Are you using the APU1 for Data Logging, chip burning, etc? If so you can run the wideband direct to the APU 1. You cannot run it direct to your GM TBI computer that I'm aware of. Without a wideband,...

If the intermittent wiper module is indeed your problem you can put a module in from an XJ cherokee or YJ Wrangler. It plugs right in and works great. As far as I can tell it's essentially the same...

If that's your end goal I think your best option would be to sell both jeeps and buy a Honda or Toyota. "Super reliable" and "30+ year old jeep" are two terms rarely used in the same sentence.

I am not running a sniper EFI, I'm running a modified Howell GM TBI system, but I personally found that vacuum controlled EGR function can wreak havoc with the tune. Since the Howell system...

A few people mentioned high zinc levels killing catalytic converters. While that is certainly true, CATs are super cheap (even California legal ones) for FSJs and much easier to change out than...

You can disconnect and plug all vacuum ports on the carb and manifold and run it. If you still have a vacuum leak then you've got an intake vacuum leak or other problem. Still recommend the smoke...

I used to have similar problems with my '88. In my case it was fuel system related. Fuel would drain back in the line back to the tank and have trouble re-priming. Would run for a bit off the fuel in...

If you can borrow a smoke machine that's an excellent way to detect vacuum leaks without running the engine. How do you know it's a vacuum leak and not some other problem? Could be ignition timing...

Looks like a nice International Travellall in the background! I've always loved those trucks. Amazing how many people in CA let back fees build up instead of just filing for non-op. It's ridiculous.

By '88 they had phased out the 6 cylinder so it should be a V8 with 727. Not sure if it's relevant to you, but I believe that the regular versions (with 2.73 gears) had a torque converter lock-up...

The compressor putting extra load on the engine could have something to do with it. Do you notice a big drop in RPMs at idle when turning the AC on? Assuming you're running a carb, the idle speed...

The fan clutch will also prevent your fan from turning too fast. Having a regular fan bolted directly to a spacer is a bad idea. The fan can actually spin too fast at high RPMs causing very odd...

In between 5/16 and 3/8 would be 9mm which would be a very odd size. I would make sure that the master will actually thread into your lines on the car before going too much further.
