This is what she looked like 11 years ago when I purchased it, and took it home to my folk's house in NW PA before I went overseas for a year. She was a basket, the PO had installed a homemade wooden center console, pick-and-pull grey bucket seats out of who knows what... everything under the hood was stock, it still had the smog stuff hooked up. And, it had that terrible and freaking heavy ACME top and doors on it.




And this was taken on go topless day, my son and I headed to a baseball game that morning. I've screwed with it quite a bit since then, COMP cam and valve train, MC2100 carb with a 2 barrel intake from a later year, upgraded a bunch of wiring, relay's in the headlights, fog lights, windshield lights, a CB in the dash, a Tuffy center console, Bestop seats, front and rear, front and rear brakes, and lock out hubs. It always seams to be something, it's currently in the garage without an oilpan as I attempt to clean the mess underneath it from an oilpan gasket leak.

the comp was a good choice, great cam. i ran the Crane and hated it, then swapped in the COMP. but you didn't swap on a 4.0HO head while in that deep? was amazed at the difference when we did Stevie's.

Yeah, I have had zero issues with the Comp stuff, cam, valve springs, you name it. The only issue was finding the right size pushrods, but the machine shop helped me figure that out.

5 or 6 years ago when I had the engine torn down to the block, I really should have. I kick myself every time I have to fiddle with a carburetor that I should have went to a 4.0 head with FI. Back then, I think I was going to buy a dual plane intake and put a 4bbl on it. I never did that either. Hindsight, right?

but that combo could yet make another 50-75hp with the head ... even a stock head.

actually, i forget what car tv show did it, but they tried a self learning EFI throttle body on a 4.0 and it failed miserably. then Rock Hound Racing, the 222 buggy, runs a holy MPFI self learning computer to run his 4.7 stroker and i'm not sure he's ever made it thru a full weekend without if failing somehow. multiple iterations and he's now going back to a stock 4.0 computer. if doing EFI, rip it from a junkyard jeep.

Thanks, that's all good info that I did not know. I'll save that for moving forward... or maybe I'll just do a Mercedes diesel swap
