jeep 4.0 question,,

ive searched and asked but no luck yet!!!

ive got a 98 jeep 4.0 want to run propane setup on it,, want to eliminate the fuel injection,computer and all the electric crap..

question is? is there a distributor i can run the 4.0 on,, that will hook to a msd box or even a standard type electronic distributor??

or is it even possible to run a 4.0 without the ecm and electricals??

want to run propane but need to figure out the
distributor,ignition and making it run.

TIA, for any help.

the only advantage to propane is that you can run in off camber and high pitch angles. with the FI already on your motor, its really not cost effective to switch, IMHO. there are threads on this issue in the hardcore tech forum and with your red star, you should be able to find them with the search function.

ok, i will better explain my situation.

i have a gutted cherokee, no wiring,computer or so on, have a late model 4.0 and i have found that i can run a gm 250 6 cyl hei distributor in the 4.0 by changing the gear out,, so i have the spark figured out but my problem is fuel and i don't have the electrical knowledge to put all the wiring back and wire everything up and get it to run,, the simple route seems to slap on a propane kit and go with it. any other ideas or suggestions. thanks
