    Hi Luckymac
    greatly appreciate your info on the HEI upgrade
    I am not an OCD person and looking to replace the stock ignition with the HEI (I bought it already) without tooooo much hassle. I also have a new Weber on it. Runs terrible now (rough). Hoping the ignition will help. A couple quick ones I hope:
    to remove the ICM or not? I saw that it took you a long time to rewire after taking out the ICM - I would rather not. Should I leave it in and connect to the wires from the old coil? Suggestions?
    Is it OK to use the vacuum line from the throat of the Weber carb? (instructions say to use ported vacuum, NOT intake vacuum)
    Anything to make this simple and effective is helpful
    thank you in advance!
    Sorry: 1989 YJ, 4.2L six, weber 550k (I think), much emissions stuff already gone...

    PS if you are open to a phone call that might be a good way to go too. Let me know it that is OK with you. I am new to Jeeps! Thanks

    Hey there! I saw from some posts that you did an engine bay cleanup, stating with and HEI distributor. I just ordered one to start the same job, but was trying to find a good description/thread of how you went about it. BTW, I lived in Englewood for awhile on the reservoir, but I don't know how close that is to you.
