Need diagram to replace vacuum lines on a 1981 Jeep Grand Cherokee

sorry there were no GC until 1993, so post real car, and real year, and model. is this a typo, 2001 ????
which engine? we cant guess that.
or your country, is this and EXPORT JEEp, the FSm has many pages, usa, and export for each engine,not one that i can guess, unstated.
the under hood had a vacuum map, but in 1981, ahhhhhhhh, not sure. (open hood look up and under see EPA vac,map)
1981 is a carb, good luck fixing carbs. huh, finding kits on some are H3LL on earth today, for some engines.
our free books go back to 1993 only
why not (best advice there is) get the 1981 FSM used off Ebay
and have all the answers, ok?

repost real car and we can get any diagram with engine and country stated (usa or export)
is this a AMC car, and a real JEEP?
AMC invented the first Cherokee and no GC EVER.

read the wiki on GC (quote)
The Grand Cherokee's origins date back to 1983 when American Motors Corporation (AMC) was designing a successor to the smaller Jeep Cherokee (XJ).[3] Three outside (non-AMC) designers-Larry Shinoda, Adam Clenet, and Giorgetto Giugiaro-were also under contract with AMC to create and build a clay model of the Cherokee XJ

What is the point gap setting for a 1969 AMC V8?

generally speaking we look for 30 degrees dwell,but setting the point gap at 18 thousands of an inch work well,then adjust the timing. dwell changes timing but timing does not change dwell,so adjust the points first then set the timing

I have a 1973 amc javelin, its been sitting (inside) for 28 years. Trying to get it running now. Replaced all the ignition system, just need to know how to set the points.

The point gap for all 1973 AMC engines is .16 inches. If you have access to a dwell meter the dwell for the V8 is 29-31 and the dwell for the 6 cylinder is 31-34.
To set the points you need to turn the engine over until the contact pad on the points is on the center of a lobe on the distributor. The lobe should be in the center of the pad so it's probably best to turn the engine over by hand. Loosen the screw on the the slotted hole in the point set and slide your feeler guage between the contact pad and the lobe. Be sure the feeler guage is flat on the contact pad or your measurement will be off. Tighten the screw and slide the feeler guage out. It should fit snugly and be able to slide back in easily but snug.
Turn the engine over until the contact pad is on the flat part of the lobe and check the alignment of the points in relation to each other. They should be closed with no gaps at either end. If there is a gap at one end then bend the stationary support until they close. DO NOT bend the moveable arm. Reset the point gap after you bend.
Once you have the gap set re-check the gap. Quite often the gap will close a little when you tighten the screw .It takes some patience to get the point set properly.
Hope this helps.

I have a 1978 amc304 and the distributor drive gear keeps rounding off and the cam gear does the same. Is this a common problem and how do i fix it

Easy fix. Buy a MATCHED SET of cam and distributor gears. When you replace just one they don't mate correctly. Break them in with either white grease or engine assembly lube. Run for a couple days and pull the distributor out and look for correct wear pattern. It should be in the approximate center of the gear. I drag race a 72 Gremlin with a 401 that turns 7400 RPM. I use this method. No gear failures as of yet. Also, there is an auxiliary oiling kit you can buy to run additional oil to the gears. Any of the AMC racing parts distributors will have this. Check the net and ebay.

83 AMC spirit free bendix

The AMC starter bendix is prone to lack of lubrication issues. Here's a permananet fix: remove battery cable Pull the starter Clean the spiral gear that the overrunning clutch rides on with WD40. This is the gear and starter shaft under the starter end cone. I soak "spray" them and use a toothbrush to get all the crud out. Relubricate with a slight smear of MOS2 grease (don't go overboard here) Lightly lubricate the solenoid pivot point under the sheetmetal cover. Reassemble and test. If it still hangs it's time for a rebuild.
