Question about 1989 Jeep Grand Wagoneer

1 Answer

Fixed up my 360 and trying to work out the bugs.

Hey guys,
I did some performance mods to my motor. I put an Edelbrock High-rise (non-EGR) manifold & 600cfm carb, shorty headers & Flowmaster, etc... I pulled out all emissions gear and reduced the "spaghetti" under the hood. I have 1 hose for the brake booster, 1 for PCV into carb, 1 for Vacuum advance into carb, What can I plug my 4wheel drive vacuum switch & Shift Motor into so my 4wheel drive is operable again? Thanks

There is a better way to go about this.

Here is a perfect opportunity to open up that vacuum shift motor, by using a hacksaw or other implement of destruction (Sawzall!!!) and open the top of that shift motor, so tht it can be resealed with JB Weld or Mig Welding or something, after the following mod is fabbed up.

See that shaft in there, get a teleflex cable to hook to that shaft, and you have just changed your vacuum shift motor to a cable actuated shift motor.

NO MORE VACUUM LINES...falling off, motors freezeng, water vapor getting in the lines and freezing, cracking, oil and transmission fluids saturating lines and causing loose fittings, getting torn off by brush, debris, etc...

Drilling a hole in the center of the top, run the Teleflex cable thru it, and place a rubber bushing around the cable to seal the opening.

Attaching a clasp to the end of the Teleflex cable and drill or thread the end of the shaft to accept an appropriate attachment point.

Thread-Loc the attachment point on to the shaft, attach the Teleflex cable to the shaft, slide the top back and seal the chamber (the top cut off earlier), and route the cable.

A good source of information.

1986 dodge with a 2001 360 dodge magnum motor 600cfm edelbrock carb, air gap edelbrock intake. new plugs (e3s) new wires new coil new ballast.. is all in time.. wont start help

Are you getting spark? You've put a 2001 engine into a 1986 body. The 2001 engine ran with an engine control module (ECM), the 1986 doesn't have that. The 1986 probably has an electronic ignition module that works with the 1986 coil and 1986 reluctor/distributor. You may want to compare the two distributors and the two coils.

Hi I just want to how much easier is it to tune an edelbrock carb then a quadrajet carb

Edelbrock cars are square bore and Quadrajets are spreadbore make sure you have either an adaptor plate if running stock manifold or you'll have vacuum leaks, as far as tuning Edelbrocks are EZ. 2 air/fuels screws that only effect idle, turn in till runs rough then back out 1/4 to 1/2 turn on both, that will set it for economy, for performance engines, turn out or counter clockwise till runs rough then turn back in clockwise 1/2 to full turn, set idle ***** and your good to go, the two vacuum ports in front are distributor advance, the right side closest to manifold is full time vacuum hook there for performance or left side for economy.. if you buy a new edelbrock carb it will run great right out of the box, also has a set/up DVD, for novice Mechanics, ez to change metering rods too, hope this helps, and in my opinion Quadrapuke carbs are junk.

Could i have an engine vacuum leak or any vacuum leak? my engine wont start after installing a new high rise intake and new holley street avenger 670 carb.

The spacer could be leaking inside - the spacer should match the gasket for the base of the carb and the intake.

What do these diagnostic codes(PO106,PO121) mean for a 2000 deawoo lanos.

OBD II Fault Code
  • OBD II P0106
Fault Code Definition
The Manifold Absolute Pressure Sensor/Barometric Pressure Sensor measures the rise and fall of the air pressure inside the Intake Manifold. This provides critical data needed for the Power Train Control Module (PCM) to control the Air Fuel Ratio, the Ignition Spark Timing, and many components of the Emissions Control Systems. The Manifold Absolute Pressure/Barometric Pressure Sensor P0106 code is set when there is a problematic or erratic performance in the voltage signal to the PCM.
  • Check Engine Light will illuminate
  • In many cases, no abnormal symptoms may be noticed
  • In some cases, the engine may be hard starting and/or get poor fuel economy
  • In some cases, noticeably poor engine performance may occur
Common Problems That Trigger the P0106 Code
  • Manifold Absolute Pressure Sensor/Barometric Pressure Sensor is defective
  • Intake Manifold vacuum leaks
  • Faulty or corroded Manifold Absolute Pressure Sensor/Barometric Pressure wiring or connections
Common Misdiagnoses
  • Manifold Absolute Pressure Sensor/Barometric Pressure Sensor is replaced when the real cause is an Intake Manifold vacuum leak
  • Manifold Absolute Pressure Sensor/Barometric Pressure Sensor is replaced when the real cause is a stuck-open EGR Valve
  • Manifold Absolute Pressure Sensor/Barometric Pressure Sensor is replaced when the real problem is a defective Idle Air Control Motor, which causes a very low engine idle

I have a pontiac 389 with an edelbrok performer manifold and 750 edelbrok carb. wondering if this is a good set up and how can I fine tune it. it boggs down when I go wide open on the throttle, it feels...

I would recommend replacing the carb with a double pump holley performer series, I have had bad luck with the edelbrock performance, and their is always a lag when the secondaries open due to no accelerator pump on the secondaries.

I am going from a qudrajet carb to an Edelbrock 600 with manual choke. I am not sure how the linkage switches over. I am working on a 1985 chevy 4x4 with a sb 350

If your staying with the stock intake manifold the edelbrock wont fit unless you install a adapter plate.And i would advise you not to install it will not seal properly.I would install a edelbrock intake manifold and carburetor as a matched set.You can purchase a edelbrock carburetor and intake manifold from advance auto parts that's designed for your vehicle.
