Jeep CJ-7 304 V8 motor


I am builting a jeep 304 V8 engine for my 1984 I have gotten the motor painted and put back together all the way to the water pump to the pullies
top and bottom on the harmonic balancer my problem is

I have bought a HP water pump inwhich I had thougt was the problem untill I had bought a stock water pump but I have put a level on both and they are the same according to the level in highth and the bubble

It seems that the bottom pullie and the water pump pullies are are 1/4 to 3/8 out with the harmonic balancer pullie being closer to the motor and the water pump pullie being a 1/4 to 3/8 away from the motor

These pullies are not lining up together like they should and im afraid that this will jump the belts

Im stumped on this problem what do you think

Thanks Chris

Re: Jeep CJ-7 304 V8 motor

Did you put the washer back on the harmonic balancer this very well could be your problem, and did you use the old balance or a new one.but you are right if they dont line up right the belts wont stay on. give me more info. and i can help you get it straight.

Dose the pyramid 801 EQ have wire outputs or RCA outputs

This unit actually has high-power, speaker-level outputs, since it is an amplifier and EQ together.

IT is good to have separate eq from built in, because you can adjust or eliminate that you want to hear. For future problem please visit my site at

I need to find out the weiring diagrame to install it

Equalizers Like a crossover, the equalizer gets installed between your receiver and your amplifier. The outputs will be preamp connections to your amplifier. You'll find EQs that are designed to be installed in the dash, above or below your receiver. Others are designed to be mounted in a remote location, like the trunk. Either way, the wiring connections required will be the same. To install:
1. Mounting the equalizer:
A remote-mount EQ can be securely mounted with just a few screws. Anywhere between the receiver and the amp is fine. Most people mount the EQ in the trunk near their amp, especially if you have more than one amp. This also makes it easier to add additional amps later. You should mount it where it will be easy to get to so that you can make adjustments without too much trouble. Don't mount your EQ directly on steel — you will invite noise problems. Instead, install it on a non-conductive board and attach the board to the car body (or use rubber grommets under the screws to isolate the crossover).
An in-dash EQ can be mounted above or below your in-dash receiver, assuming that you have space available in the dash. This will require custom installation work. Another option is installation below your dash, in a universal under-dash mounting kit. To install the under-dash mounting kit, attach it to the mounting surface using the supplied self-tapping screws. In most cases, the use of an under-dash kit will require modifications to the kit or to the mounting surface.
3a-xover.jpg Locate the remote turn-on lead behind your radio (usually a blue wire). 3b-xover.jpg Connect the turn-on lead from your amplifier wiring kit to the blue wire. You can wrap the bare wire ends together and cover with electrical tape, or use solder. 2. Making the power connections:Your EQ will require 12-volt power, ground, and turn-on signal connections.
  • To obtain 12-volt power: Cut a length of small-gauge cable (16 gauge is typically sufficient) long enough to reach from the EQ location to your vehicle's fuse panel. Strip one end of the wire, and attach it to the EQ's power input. This may require a crimp-on connector, or bare wire might be sufficient, depending on the equipment you're installing. Route the wire from the EQ location to your car's fuse panel. Using a fuse tap, connect the wire to a source of switched 12V power.
  • To ground the EQ: Remove a bolt near the EQ mounting location. Crimp a ring terminal to one end of a length of small-gauge wire, and then bolt the terminal tightly to the vehicle's metal chassis. Scrape away any paint and clean the bolt location thoroughly. If you can't find a convenient ground screw or bolt, drill a hole for one — be careful not to drill into the gas tank or a gas or brake line.
  • Making the turn-on connection: In most cases, you can tap into your in-dash receiver's amp turn-on lead to get a turn-on signal for your EQ. Remove the receiver from the dash to access the turn-on wire (usually a blue wire). For step-by-step instructions on removing your vehicle's radio, see your vehicle-specific Crutchfield MasterSheet™, or read our In-Dash Receiver Installation Guide. Strip the insulation off a small section of this wire coming from the radio. Strip the insulation off another small-gauge cable that's long enough to reach from the in-dash receiver to the EQ, then connect the two with crimp caps or solder. Wrap the solder or crimp connection with electrical tape to guard against a short. Using wire ties to secure the wire, route the turn-on lead behind your dash all the way to the EQ mounting location.
3. Making the signal connections:
In most cases, you'll be routing RCA cables from your in-dash receiver's preamp outputs to the inputs of your EQ. While your receiver is out of the dash to access the turn on lead, connect a set of RCA patch cables (long enough to reach your crossover in its mounting location) to these outputs, taping them together so they won't come apart. Route the patch cables (again using wire ties) behind the dash, and to the crossover mounting location.

Basscube remote knob wire


funny seeing this question posted here... I worked at Phoenix Gold for 4 years, and I can help you with your problem.

when the BassCUBE was designed, the engineers didnt realize that a standard phone cable is what we call a "flipped cable", where if you were to lay the cable flat without any twists in it, on one end the connector would be tab up, and the other end would be tab down. on a standard RJ11 plug (the phone plug), the telephone requires that the pinout is as follows:

#1 - Black
#2 - Red
#3 - Green
#4 - Yellow

But the BassCUBE needs a non-flipped cable, which are hard as heck to find... so I will give you the quick easy fix.

You need a 2-line (4-wire) telephone cable that has a black, a red, a green, and a yellow wire in side it, and you will need 4 crimp caps or other way to splice the wires back together. You then need to cut the wire in half, and carefully seperate and strip each wire on each piece of the cable. Call one piece "Part A", and the other piece "Part B". Then you need to splice the cable back together as below.

Part A Part B

Black ------------------> Yellow
Red --------------------> Green
Green -----------------> Red
Yellow ----------------> Black

Once you have done this, and your SURE that your splice is good (not shorted out), then go ahead and plug your modified cable into the BassCUBE and its remote control, power it up, and you should be good to go.

No sound.

As you have indicated there is no sound at all in the out-puts available.What this could probably mean the out put ic is dead.Another thing to remember is to connect the red positive wire to the standby wire which is mostly yellow in color.

first of all you must understand that all the generic driven components are I.C based.Hence any short circiut coming from the out-puts can lead to the ic failure.Always you should match the red white etc to the corresponding amp equipment.
