    @SlowJoe: It's fuel injected. :)

    Check the fuel pressure. I don't remember if you're using an in-tank pump, or an in-line pump, but we went through several in-line pumps on my brother's fuel injected Scrambler... Don't know why,...

    I think they are Weld Racing, or Eagle Alloys. They are about 15 years old now, and originally were polished aluminum with some ugly stamped aluminum center caps that covered the lugs. I think they...

    I'd suggest a 242 out of an XJ or ZJ or KJ. Stay away from cases out of XJ's built before 1990, as they were only 21 spline.
