      I've got one of those ornaments on my J-10 as well. I love that AMC logo.


      Cheers.

            very cool thread. I'm a big fan of the Javelins.
            They don't come up for sale much around here.

              Thanks! The cars in the pictures are actually AMX's - a 2 seater sports car. They made 19,000 of them in 3 years. They made a lot more Javelins. Here is a picture of the one that I build for my Daughter but of course I drive it more than she does. It is a drive anywhere car with a 304 and a AW4 transmission. Her Javelin actually has a AMX grille in it.

                  102. Fury5 360: It runs! Now I have to re-torque head bolts, change oil, and install his pretty pair of rocker arm covers.

                  Here are a couple of videos.

                    25 plus psi of oil pressure at 1000 rpm and 170 degrees of coolant temp. What oil is that? Baldwin B8 oil filter?

                      Now that is how I like one to idle,...

                      thanx for walking out each time and letting us hear the exhaust notes...

                      I kick myself each time I see and hear one of your engines,....

                      and call myself an,....."idiot"

                        15w40 Rotella with Lucas Zinc additive. This one is a '91 with the metric oil filter and I didn't have one so I had to use a NAPA brand for start up. Now have a Baldwin to put on it for the first oil change.

                        1966-1989 on the left, 1990-1991 on the right

                        And by the way... If you don't know any better, the early filter will thread right on to the metric thread and and will be snug until you crank the engine up to about 2500 rpm to break the cam in. Then, it the filter will blow off like a shot gun and spew about a gallon of oil all over your shop before you realize it and can shut the engine off. Ask me how I know..

                        The moral of the story is, don't trust a retired AMC Engineer or his "new" parts when rebuilding his engine..
                        I was actually building a engine for this fellow (Al Larry). For some reason I assumed that he would have the correct parts. LOL!

                            B9 is the full quart size for the V8 that fits the full size Jeeps and AMC cars 1966-1989
                            B39 is the shorter one that fits all V8 Jeeps and small AMC cars 1966-1989.
                            B141 fits the V8 with the metric thread 1990-1991
                            They all have the anti-drain back feature in them.
