Due to being diagnosed with incurable blood cancer I need to sell both of my AMC projects. Price for all negotiable.

 I have a 1980 wagon that has a 4.0 bottom end and 4.2 top end, dual fan radiator and electric fuel pump from previous owner. I have installed a new carburetor and voltage regulator conversion. Runs and drives but still needs more work. Fuel lines and brake for starters.

I also have a 1983 SX/4 with 40k original miles. I started the dreaded oil pan/ crank seal replacement when I got the bad news. This car is in awesome condition and its difficult for me to have to sell it. I have a lot of OEM parts that I have purchased over the years that goes with it.

You will need a trailer and some help with getting the SX/4 rolling out of the garage.

Feel free to contact me with questions. Both cars are here in Baltimore, MD were I live.

Your Eagle(s) / Re: Which lug nuts do I use on the aluminum wheels for 87 Eagle

Thanks for the info.  I looked up the number and found them.  Now I know where to go from here.

The "correct" part is an AMC/Jeep J4006956.   Google that number and you'll see the Crown reproductions sold by the Jeepers (and Amazon).   However, any decent chrome "Bulge" Acorn 1/2-20 nut will work just fine.

Your Eagle(s) / Which lug nuts do I use on the aluminum wheels for 87 Eagle

I have an 87 Eagle wagon that I just bought some reconditioned aluminum wheels for.  Currently it has the standard wheel covers and the steel rims using the acorn lug nuts. I'm trying to determine the correct set of lug nuts to use on the aluminum wheels.  I see a few different styles available.  Does anyone know which are the right ones to use?

Just agreed to buy another Eagle. Is something wrong with me? Looks pretty clean & solid from pics. Have to figure out when I'm gonna pick it up. It's in Wisc. & I'm in Misery. I'm sure my van will tow it, my big problem is getting someone to help me drive. 4 door sedan, can't post pics. here. U*(#W!@%#%^!(P@(&  >:( >:( >:( :censored: :censored: :censored: :censored: :censored: COMPUTERS!!!!!!!! SIMILAR pics. on my spacebook page, "Other Eagles" album. ALMOST matches my wagon, but looks a little bit lighter (like the difference between beige & tan). The one I called 'Clever Eagle' (name of the town where it was) is the same color. The one in Wisc. is missing all the rust the one in Clever had. :)

Okay, I CAN post pics. HERE. A couple more here, didn't realize I had the other post started too!

Axle / Differential / Re: Front axle IFS swap
« Last post by Illeagle1984 on May 02, 2021, 07:05:02 PM »
Keep us posted on what you find, I'm sure this info would be of use to many of us.  I too wish to keep the IFS of the Eagle, but the 2.35 gears are an odd duck.

What I do know is that CV axles from a 1990 S10 are nearly identical to Eagle shafts, being just a fraction of an inch longer.  Apparently it is a GMC ICA 7.25" differential.  It has a vacuum disconnect as well as a regular yoke and driver side mounting position.  I wonder if that diff would fit in an Eagle...
