Elec. connection on air cleaner

I have an '82 258 (no computer). There is a quarter-sized disk attached to the inside of the aircleaner with 2 electrical connections on the outside. It's mounted on the side of the cleaner. Does anybody know what this is? Can't seem to find it in the Hayes manual or the Jeep Bible. What wires connect to this? What does it do?

Re: Elec. connection on air cleaner

Go to this web site..
it will explain it and all the others...basically, its a thermostatic switch that closes when the temp in the air cleaner is above a certain point.

One piece of advice....don't rip out your emissions controls thinking it will help....it won't. It takes little effort to keep it all working...and when its working, your jeep will run fine. About the only mod that I feel is well worth making is replacing your old Duraspark dist with the GM HEI....I just did it and its like having a new engine.

I've read that site many times, but didn't notice the switch.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/blush.gif[/img]
I'm trying to get all the emissions garbage back in working order. I figure, the engine was designed with it all working, so before I do any upgrades, I better get it all back to square one and see what works and doesn't. My hood is a mess! Previous owner(s) moved hoses all over the place!
