Jeep with Ford parts
I'm trying to get this jeep to run. I post this in the Ford area because old jeeps are made out of just about anything AMC could get their hands on. The jeep has an AMC 360 v8, Ford 2bbl carb, and Ford Ignition system.
The ignition on the truck cuts out, blows fuses, and has other general problems. The problem is in the wiring/half a*sed rewiring someone tried.
On the fender there is a Ford Ignition box. Is there any way to rig that to run with hot wires going strait to it? Much like you can rig Chevy HEIs to run with a few hot wires to the correct places? Rather than try and track down the problem i'd like to just make my own wiring. I want to start fresh with a separate relay and fuse block for the motor and other vital electrical parts. Is there a way to totally bypass the ignition box? Just run a hot wire to the coil and call it a day? The truck will never see pavement again, and I doubt the motor could ever see a red line limit again, so the box is really not needed.
