    I didn't get the time to set the timing and idle on the Jeep I sold my sister before she got here. Anyone close to Renton have a timing light that would do it for a little cash? Or recomend a shop that won't try to rip her off. It is on a 2.5L 1985 Jeep Cherokee.

    Is it same procedure as Chev?

    I think I've still got the timing light I borrowed from my dad...

    I'm available Fridays during the day, typically I'm there Fri-Sun, but I've got to work Sat-Sun this weekend.

    Same basic procedure as GM small blocks, disconnect vacuum advance and plug, set timing to 12* btdc, set idle to 750 RPM (tach in dash should be good enough for that). Double check timing then reconnect the vacuum advance if it's good to go. I just ran out of time before I got to it. It already has a rebuilt carb, rebuilt distributor, new plugs, cap, rotor, wires, ignition module, starter, battery, etc...
