1990 2.5 4 cyl

Had this project working on since may of last year. The guy who had it before also bought it as a project. When we gutted the fuel injection system and tried to rig up a Carb from some japanese truck. Got a weber fitted now with holley pump and reg. Starts fine enough but no matter what adjustment we make cant get her to idle correct no matter if we advance the timing or what, so we figure it's the distributor? that is the one in there is made for the fuel injection system with the computer. Question what can i get to replace the existing distributor without breaking the bank ? would the distributor from the previous year carb'd AMC 150 work ?

Need some help here

what about fixing the fuel injection, that throttle body injection is simpler than a carb. going from tbi to carb is a step backwards, why downgrade?

"The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president."

Yeah that was the first thought, but that throttle body was not used for very long based on research, that and not being able to find it online. Still not sure if the ecu functions either. most connections had been cut. Know anywhere i can find a carb"d 150 amc distributor? at this point we were thinking engine swap.

I have a whole setup from a 89'. Intake, tbi, engine harness, interior harness, and computer.
