Project Cars / Re: 84 sedan project (beginners luck)
« Last post by Murdoc1905 on Today at 08:10:21 PM »
I'll have to see if I can borrow a timing light to see what it's at, I would have never thought it would cause that kind of an issue. I think I found a loose vacuum hose right next to the carb and zip tied it tight, but I swear it runs worse now. I also found out I ran it without the throttle spring. I got really lucky it didn't stick open or anything like that.

If there is one thing that is needed by Eagle owners, it would be stronger hatch hinges. However,  until the used supply runs out, I don't think many would be willing to pay what it would cost to make a set.

You could, but you shouldn't have too. Somthing is making her slow at idle. I am grasping here, but how is the timing?

Hmm, will have to try and trace the wire from the connector.  AC turns on so at least part of it is working!

Ok, sooo. According to the metering pin the engine is running lean, when I high throttle it and then release the pin will slightly wiggle back and forth, when I close off the choke for as long as I can before the engine dies it doesn't move at all. So more than likely a bad o2 sensor.

hi, glad you found it! good stuff if you plan to keep your Eagle. Remember, all of this is moot if your computer is no longer working, though I see no reason why it shouldn't be. If your Eagle is running, chances are that its good. BTW, its behind the passenger side kick panel. If for some reason its not working, believe it or not, the computer is still available at any parts store, though only the California version, no big difference, for about $190. +core. Part # OEM 79-1733.. good luck, gz
Remember, Rule #1 with AMCs, don't throw ANYTHING away, especially if you don't know what it is! :)

Here's what one I bought looked like! Sad part, the interior was almost perfect & the outside didn't look bad (No visible rust).

hi, don't worry about that plug, it WAS plugged into a part called the PCV Valve Solenoid, which was recalled by AMC back in the day , Again, check out the sprynet thing, all the info you need on amc/jeep 80s carb/emission controls. good luck, gz
