HEI write up

Anyone know where a article is on a HEI conversion for a AMC 258. And since my 81 CJ is a pre stepper motor carb, will this be the mod for me?

Re: HEI write up

I dont know much about Prestolite ignitions or earlier 258s so my article reflects that lack of knowledge. After you are done with the HEI mod and you have info that might help others with your similar setup, let me know and I'll add it to my page.

The key for you will be finding a suitable 12 volt source during crank and run. Make sure there is no resistance in the wire.

Good luck... it really is an easy mod once you get into it.

Re: HEI write up

LarryM, mine is a motorcraft SSI. That's not the same as Prestolite...right?
Thanks LarryE

Re: HEI write up

LarryE,
Im sorry, you should have the Ford Motorcraft Duraspark ignition. 1974-77 had the Prestolite.


DirtDog,
I wasnt sure if Terry didnt in fact have a writeup of his own... hell, he has documented everything else.

Re: HEI write up

Larry,
I did the HEI swap in a '75 with the Prestolite and it was as straightforward as with the Duraspark. It was probably easier as there were fewer wires to get confused with while trying to find out which is the power source. If you would like, I can find out what the differences are and leave you a private message on what wire is power, etc..
