Eagle Road Trips / Re: Cross country in an new to us eagle!!!!
« Last post by Mauieagle80 on Today at 12:26:59 PM »
Well we made it to the rockies!!! Where an eagle can fly! Turns out we have to get a windsheild put in in denver. So we are at Latinos auto glass. The only window i could find in the region was right around the corner from here. We will be in denver today and tomorrow. Today may be busy but if any of you other denver eagle folks are around tommorrow it would be fun to gather round some where. Just let me know. Anybody can call me at 937 232 7338. My name is Shane.

Looks like a fun project. I think you could email Gronk to get a copy of his carb installation instructions. Look for his listings on eBay for that carb kit.

Smaller tires are easiest, but I've done a lift recently so let me know if you have questions. From your picture, it looks like somebody has already been at work on your rear leaf shackles. That is a very shiny new bolt, and the shackles look longer and thicker than stock too. Stock shackles are 3-1/2" between bolt holes, so you may want to measure yours.  In the rear you can get add-a-leaf kits from Jeep Cherokees. For the front you will want either spring spacers (sketchy) or new taller springs. You can get 2" of lift from stock without going crazy.

Good luck!

Right below your box that you type in is a attachments and other options. Click or tap that and you will see a choose file box open up. That is that easy

Well, we got the new valve cover on, with a new gasket.  changed out to some new vacuum lines, as some were cracking, and put on some new gas line hose.

Got some new sparkplugs from Dean tonight, and those will go next weekend. 

Having issues inserting images from my pc... It's been awhile since I've done this...
Ebay/Craigslist/Kiji or any other third party links. / Unique Eagle Wagon - eBay
« Last post by vangremlin on October 21, 2017, 09:46:03 AM »
There is a very unique Eagle wagon on eBay right now - it has a front bench seat.  I've heard rumors of some special model Eagles having bench seats, like some corporate models or US government models but never saw anything definitive.  I suppose this bench seat could have been swapped in but it looks like it belongs there.  Also notable is the lack of woodgrain on the dash other than the radio pod.

hello and welcome! nice Eagle. Looks like you have the Gronk carb update. As for lifts , I personally don't recommend them, but lots of others here do. I would just mount a set of smaller tires until all other issues are resolved, good luck, gz

I made the unwise choice of buying someone else's project car, but here I am, the proud owner of a 1982 AMC eagle! I really need some help though. It seems to run OK, except for a loss of power at a certain RPM. It has had a carb swap, and from lurking on this forum, i'm pretty sure it's the motorcraft 2150. I have no idea on how to tune it so if anyone can point me to a guide, that would be awesome! It also has some really big tires on it that rub a bit when going over bumps, so I would like to see if I can give it a little lift as well. The end goal is a fun, funky off road machine!


edit: how do I post pics? edit: Nevermind.

Off topic / Re: Considering selling our Eagle
« Last post by JONAS78028 on October 20, 2017, 08:47:47 AM »
We don't "need" to sell it but I hate to just have it sitting around outside my house since I don't have inside storage for it.  We may just take a loss on it if the right buyer comes along.  I definitely won't sell it to some kid that wants to tear it up.  It's still my wife's daily driver for now.
Ebay may be the way to go with this one but I've never sold anything on ebay before.  I'll post up what we decide to do.

welcome and that is a nice wagon dude.  I also have an 80 wagon but is nowhere near as nice as yours is. If if you want to see what it looks like click the link below in my post. BTW I'm in southern Colorado in the Pueblo area.

Yeah i cant wait to get those on there. Just saving the tsls tread till i get to the rockies. With the aluminum wheels they are lighter than what i have on and i will be shedding 3 tires worth of weight and since the swampers are a touch smaller i should pick up a lil pep from the old bird.  I also plan to do all the ford upgrade ignition parts tommorrow in minneapolis. We also are getting a windshield replacement tommorrow. We have a nice crack up the drivers side.  Here are some pictures we took lately. Enjoy!
