superdiver Awesome! Is there a couple of guys on Ebay that do this? Or only him? I wanna make sure i get it form the right guy...

Jerricho Ya, he has a really good PDF that he sends with it. Loads of pictures, and step by step instructions.
05-07-2013 01:47 AM
superdiver And he provides detailed instructions on how to do it when you buy the carb and set up from him on Ebay?

roadyrob the HEI (high energy ignition) is a distributor with ignition control module and coil built in. it was used in late 70's gm cars. some people get them from a 6 cyl. and change the drive gear and use them. all it needs to work is one hot wire from your ignition switch so it eliminates a lot of parts.

superdiver Thats what I plan on doing after I do the nutter.. i wanna see how much the nutter helps...

or should I just order it and do it all at the same time?

What exactly does the HEI kit do? i see everyone saying to do it as well...

Jerricho Super, If you end up getting your carb from the Ebay guy, he will also sell you a HEI kit with very good instructions for $90 if I remember right. Just have him throw it on top. That is about as cheap as I could do from the AutoZone on my own.

superdiver So i found a nice picture step by step Nutter Bypass thread here

This is a Picture Guide to Nutter Bypass -

its on a 1990 4.2L and mine is a 1989 4.2L... they should be about identical, right?

BCDonny you can google both and find tons of stuff
05-04-2013 12:44 PM
superdiver Is there a "step by step" thread on how to do this?
04-26-2013 09:08 PM
BCDonny you can get the motorcraft carb 2150 and the HEI from CRT both from ebay, I have done it it's the best thing I have done to my jeep Check my build pictures and see all the junk you can remove from under the hood. Plus it runs so good,

roadyrob for the motorcarft carb check ebay, theres a seller there that many use. for a HEI ignition check out CRT performance, look for the distributor for a jeep 258.
