Emissions/Vacuum Systems / Re: Vacuum Tubing & Connectors.
« Last post by DIREWOLF on Yesterday at 04:23:36 PM »
Thanks for information. I was just using the image as a reference as to which part I'm looking for. I wasn't sure the technical name for it so pictures usually do the trick there. :) I'm in the process of ordering a TSM for the car, so that will help I believe. I will look into Lambert Motors, thanks for tip. I've been on and off eBay looking for things but like you said about price gouging, that's pretty typical on there.

First, the correct part numbers are different for your '82 (assuming your equipment is original to the car).   

The '82 vacuum harness is P/N J3240582 (have to get the whole harness; not just the end).   Lambert Motors shows one in stock (phone 888-856-4524).   Lambert is a great place for classic AMC/Jeep parts, because they do not price-gouge!!   Another option here is to just cut off the end, and add some short pieces of vacuum hose in place of the original connector.

The '82 vacuum motor is J3240125.   This is probably the same part as the one shown in the later diagram (the 53004596), but I have no proof of that.   Good luck finding that piece.   They occasionally show up on Ebay, and usually sell for about $100.

Thank you for the link. I went to the encyclopedia section but had trouble finding what you provided in the link.
As for specific parts I'm looking for, on the attached photo circled in red: #4 and #20 are the parts I'm seeking but not just for the T-Case vacuum system but rather all the vacuum system related parts. The vacuum system harnesses throughout the cars system and all the actuators. All the vacuum line ends/connectors are trashed on my SX/4 and need replaced but I don't know where to purchase them.

Thanks.

I'm jealous just like Rafe!  Fuel injection would be just what I need to go to the mountains in my Eagle.  Looks awesome too!  Glad to hear its running so well.

So far so good. That bog when accelerating is completely gone, I can press the peddle down as far and as fast as I like without issues. Its driving exactly how I wanted so far. Acceleration is sooooo much better.  The computer is still "learning" and if I slam the gas long enough it has a so slight sputter. Cool thing is at the red light you go to your touch screen on the dash, go to "fuel parameters"  and click up a couple notches on the "accelerating fuel" option. Then good to go.

Only issue I see is it runs hot. Thats probably because of a few things.

1.   no fan shroud (yet)
2. the water temp sensor is in the thermostat housing. Grabbed one from a 95 Jeep. so guessing its a little hotter there

the temp gauge on the dash reads cold at the same time though.   running average of 203 deg on the computer screen. so should be fine.

Going to drive it 100 miles this afternoon to go camping so that will the next test.

Lots of compliments on the streets in Chicago. Got stopped 100 feet form my house and a guy was yelling how that was his dream car when he was a kid.
yesterday at the car wash the owner asked what kind of car it was.   He thought it was Japanese and I had to explain American Motors to him.  After he gave me tokens for a free wash. haha.

What parts are you looking for specifically?

Emissions/Vacuum Systems / Vacuum Tubing & Connectors.
« Last post by DIREWOLF on Yesterday at 01:55:06 AM »
Hi everyone,
I'm working on replacing the vacuum tubing, connectors, actuators and everything else that goes along with it, on my 82 AMC Eagle SX/4 Sport. 4.2L, 258, Inline 6. But I'm having trouble finding the replacement parts and a vacuum diagram to assist the process.

Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

I am very worried about getting taken financially and taken as in the car won't be worked on as it should and just sit if I either drop it off at a brake place or drop it off at a mechanic who will do it on the side. On the side usually means it will never be done unless its a year from then and then they find ways to jack the price up and local brake places invent ways to jack prices way high.

So...I'm going to "try" and do some little things to help myself out if possible. I will go under the car and crack all the fasters loose that hold the lines in place and make sure they turn good and remove and then loosen the brake line holders as well. I figure if I can at least get everything to turn freely and be nice and free and loose this should help me out some.

I'll feel better when I'm back in my element doing stuff I know how to do like remove the radiator and replace hoses and clamps and lines. Never did brake work before. The carburetor is beyond my abilities as well and so is changing out the timing belt or timing chain whichever it has
