Re: Convert to serpintine belt?
Jeepdawg, I,m not sure about the ring gear thing. I thought that the '87's should already have the gear recuction starter. Does your flywheel have some tone notches machined into it now? On my '83 258, the flywheel was thicker than a 4.0's., with no notches. I thought the '87 and newer 258's, were the same as the later 4.0's, but with different notches for the Mopar fuel system. These had tone notches machined into them for the early Renix fuel system. I guess that what I always thought was all flywheels with tone notches used the gear recuction starter.
I was at a yard yesterday cutting out a harness for another project, and noticed an '87 YJ with the engine pulled. It had a ba-10/5 with the mount for the sensor, but that was about all that was there. I bribed the owner with a box of fresh made German pasterys, and guess what, He gave me all of the wires I hacked from a Grand Cherokee, and another complete 5.9 core for a builder. He is even delivering it to the shop on monday for me, as it wouldn't fit in the Saab, way cool!
