well finally wound up with a push to get something happeneing.

mounted new intake and mc 2100 carb today, then couldnt get the bolts started took it back off started bottom bolts put it back on.

Found that the clifford intake i had bought had some wierd tabs on it that would keep you from getting a socket on the bottom bolts to tighten them. Fabbed up throttle linkage and getting it all set.

Took it all back off will be doing some grinding on the intake in the morning and reinstalling it.

actually had the jeep running at one point rough idle but could be due to vacuum leak on intake not completely sealed. will take some pictures tomarrow

actually running this morning took it out for a test run, from my house to camp hardee in blounts creek for girl scout day with my daughter.......2/3 the way there bam rear driveshaft disintegrated....lucky for me just happened to think enough to bring some tools with droped the yoke off the rear (what was left) locked in the hubs put it in 4h and continued to drive on.

on a positive not the new carb and intake purs like a kitten i catch my self still trying to feather the gas when i come to a stop even tho it doenst need that any more.

still have to change out the distributor to the gm hei unit i have and now fix rear pinion angle and add new drive shaft but were making progress now that its not 110 in the shade

new engine installed. had to wait three weeks for a damn valve cover to come from clifford. (old one was for a 81 and up motor, its for sale btw) painted all the brakets for the brake booster and all of that is painted, all brackets painted, and trimmed to fit , new radiator fan, new waterpump.

did away with the mechanical fuel pump replaced it with a electric, replaced the old duraspark ignition with a gm hei unit, runs good other then starving for fuel ( have to make a dedicated circuit for fuel pump and ignition using relays off a ignition source i have the parts for this already)

Transmission and transfer case taken to bare metal and repainted. front driveshaft in for now. have to extend the frame on the rear to put a driveshaft in there. W

ill post a few pics of the engine compartment later

little update got the heap running this week. need to install a fuel pressure regulator, motor runs great tho.

friday on the way home from work (to pick up a fuel pressure regulator) lost a rear bearing on my axle, axle walked out of housing at 55 mph. made for a very scary 30 seconds or so before i finally came to rest on the opposite side of the road. so spent all evening getting a trailor and going and loading my crap up getting it home now the search is on for new axle i dont care what as long as its not another amc20. i will never own another one of them EVER.

a 44 from a TJ would look nice under there.. cut the coil brackets off, burn on some perches, and get a set of wheel adapters to keep the CJ wheels...

good luck Brandon, get that thing right!

Question: What's so much better about a D44 than the AMC20? I've never had problems with my AMC20 if built right.

If you upgrade, might as well go to a semi float D60 for some real difference in strength.

main problem nothing to hold the axle in for me. not sure if you have ever had that happen to you but its happened to me twice now first time i caught it before it walked out all the way. second time it walked all the way out and i almost rolled going down the highway at 55 mph. this was clearly not my idea of fun.

The D44 has the same (similar) way of retaining the axle as the AMC20. This is a common problem on all semifloat axles. If this is a concern, I'd suggest going to a full float axle
