Yes. Get the HEI and throw the Prestolite in the garbage where it belongs. The HEI is one of the best things to do to your Jeep.

J4GRAND, what pistons did you use to get 9.5:1? Flat top, standard dished, or something else? And what timing do you use to not get pinging? Thanks.

My 76 uses a sort of hinge on the front side and a bolt on the rear to hold up the spare. I have a 31 under mine, but I had to make a new bracket hinge, and use a longer bolt. The tire diameter is no...

Pull all the plugs out and crank the engine. Most of the water will be pumped out of the chambers or evaporate. But the antifreeze will take a while to evaporate. You also have to replace the plugs....

Why not get some 3.54's from the yards? The Trac-Loc was optional on them in the late 70's. will be even better than the 3.31's.

In 76, the 3-speed was standard on Cherokees with the 360 two-barrel, but the 4-speed was an option. The 4-speed was standard on the 360 4V.
