help itentifying ignition hardware
Hi Jeep folks.
I have a problem. I have a Frankenstein monster of a postal jeep with the AMC 6cyl - nothing is original on this jeep it would have came with a GM 4 cyl in 83. I noticed that I was drooling hot silicone out of the engine compartment onto the drive when it was running. It was the innards of an ignition module going to goo. Problem is: when looking into the numbers on this ignition system, I have hit some walls. Here is the hardware:
'83 Postal Jeep.
ENGINE: 258 4.2L 3.75 L-6 (serial # 902A24, block # 3224098, so late 70's perhaps)
Current distributor: Prestolite IDJ-4002C, serial# 3224969 - cant find any info on this model.
Current MELTING ignition box: Prestolite #65-102
Obviously I need to replace the box. Probably the entire electronic ignition. Can anyone tell me what I have and (more importantly) what I need??
