    Ignition Misfire Diagnostics

    I realize this isn't of any help to your problem (well maybe it is), when you are searching for answers are you looking for black "intake" or "exhaust" valves? #8 is the only one that has a dark "exhaust" valve, so maybe you mistyped in your searching as well. :shrug:

    Advice needed: Looking at buying a project cj-8

    Sounds like a good project. Do you have any pics you can share? As far as transporting... If it's together enough to roll onto a trailer just set the tub on it and temporarily bolt it to the frame. I transported mine ~12 hours on a U-haul trailer with all the additional parts, tools, etc. in...

    This is an old thread but they actually made them so I would think they may still be available. :shrug: https://www.cj-8.com/threads/upper-a-pillar-repair-panel.25758/page-2

    Tub Mounts - 1984 Scrambler

    From the factory they all have the sleeves. I remember most of mine were intact, but I went with a 1" lift so used the hardware in the kit. Here is a set that shows the parts: https://www.quadratec.com/products/55008_00.htm

    Warn 8274 wiring

    I actually used some of the lower amperage ones on my golf cart for a 48vdc-120vac inverter. How do you like the li-po set up? The SB-350 are rated up to 500 amps (wire size dependent), the 8274 is well within the rating of these connectors.

    Rebuild original motor or replace with a remanufactured Jasper motor.

    Not sure how original your 8 is or what your plans are but... if it were me I would consider a quality stroker motor and store the original engine if you are concerned about any resale down the road. The future buyer could decide if they would want to rebuild the original motor, run the...

    4.0 with Speedhut gauges?

    This would only work for one particular value as the resistance curve of the sending unit is non-linear. That helps a lot. I had found the temp to resistance values for their sending unit on their website but it was only a graph. That spreadsheet is much more helpful. As the gauge doesn't...
