the 1600 rpm for timing is for a stock distributor, once you change it timing is set at idle or around 800 rpm.
the HEI along with a carb swap is a fantastic mod, luv mine.

well once you have it installed let us know what you think.. I think mine is great or is that because the old one was just worn out??
I still think it is the best up grade I have done to my jeep

|roadyrob||get a vacuum gauge instead and set the timing with that.|

Just realized that "defended" should be refunded. Damn auto correct.

|BCDonny||when I added the CRT HEI dizzy I think it was the best upgrade that I have done to the jeep so far!|
|06-20-2013 04:57 PM|
|indirocz28||I already know. I will order it straight from CRT though. I bought one last month but they defended my money and said they didn't have parts till mid/end of June.|

|roadyrob||the HEI is a excellent upgrade, even if you got the wrong gear it won't wreck your engine in a couple of hundred miles, more like a few thousand for the cam gear to go bad. put some miles on it and check the cam gear, of course once its worn you will probably looking at a cam replacement, but hey, its your motor.|

|Cole Noah||What all improvements did you notice? How hard was the install? I have a weber as well|
|06-17-2013 04:20 PM|
|indirocz28||Did you confirm the gear? If that gear is hardened, you will be replacing an engine in a few hundred miles.|

|Ritchie||So I put my new distributor on last night... It runs like a beast!! Big difference! Thanks for all the advice!!!|
|06-09-2013 09:35 PM|
you will be able to tell the difference between hardened steel and soft steel with a drill bit. as to size, just pick one and drill in spot other than the gear teeth, not a deep hole, just enough to see if it will drill.
also, unless you have special bits you can't drill hardened steel no matter what you think.
|06-09-2013 08:10 PM|
Not sure the drill method is really a valid experiment??
I mean I can drill through all kinds of metals with some of the bits I have..
|06-09-2013 07:46 PM|
|06-09-2013 07:01 PM|
|roadyrob||you can take a small drill bit and try to drill into the gear, if it drills your ok.|
|06-09-2013 05:46 PM|
|indirocz28||Call sumitt and ask what its make of, or the specifics.|
|06-09-2013 05:04 PM|
|06-09-2013 09:30 AM|
No you will not.
What you need to do is call sumitt racing, and give them that part number and ask them if the drive gear is an AMC drive gear and what metal it is made from.
The issues that people have been having are that the drive gears are harder than.the camshaft, and it eats into the camshaft, causing all kinds of metal shavings in the engine. I have read lots of bad things about the HEIs coming from anywhere but CRT.

|Ritchie||It's actually from chandlermotorsportsinc Off of ebay Item#320742659887 Will I be able to look and compare to tell if they match?|
|06-08-2013 05:16 PM|
Link, who's it from?
If it is from CRT, you're good to go. But even the ones that 4whlparts or whatever sells have ruined engines due to the drive gear being the wrong one.

Distributor late 232 258
4.0 4.2 50k .. And it says it's compatible with my 87 jeep wrangler. Dies that sound right to you?
|06-08-2013 02:23 PM|
I'm not saying it isn't one, I do know that certain MC 2150 versions ARE made for CA emissions. You will just need to search a bit to figure out what is needed for it to pass.
I do however know that doing the NUTTER BYPASS/ switching to a non computer controlled distributor will possibly make your vehicle fail smog and emissions there .

I'm not sure on the SMOG stipulations in CA, but with the MC carb they do not have SMOG functions like the carter bbd had. There is no computer control of the mc2100/2150 from what I have seen, whereas on the carter bbd, there is the IACV stepper motor controlled by the computer, and the distributor timing is controlled by the computer as well.
If you put on a non emissions carb, and a non emissions/computer controlled distributor, I think that they would fail you.
