Re: diesel

It wasn't an amc diesel, it was a renault (or puegot) they were partners with amc before chrysler bought them, I'm pretty sure the diesels only came in cherokees and very early cherokees at that 84-86. not sure about adapting them to a cj

Re: diesel

Current European Jeep diesel's are made by "MV" which is an Italian company.
It could be that this engine is used in several different cars...

There is a 4-cylinder 2.5 liter and a 5 cylinder 3.3 liter (which is basically the 4 banger with an added cylinder)

Both engines uses turbo's and power is about 120-150 hp, with lots of torque.

(My local dealer's chief mechanic hasn't to much positive to say about them, other than that they work ok....)

On http://www.moller.no click "biler" (cars), Jeep, you will find the spec.

"Effekt" = horsepower, "Dreimoment" = torque (and it's in Newton-Meter...)
