Re: Hi from Southern Nevada (First Post)

Welcome Aboard Bruce. Your 93 AWD probably has a VIN-W motor (CPI) Not a VIN-Z motor (TBI) But it could have either. You can easily tell two ways: 1) Look at the 8th digit of the VIN. It is either a Z or a W. 2) Look at the engine: It either looks like it has a carb on top with a round aircleaner o...

Anyway, I have a 93 AWD Safari that is a bit of a project. Runs great, but needs the front wheel drive components.
Anyway, I'm hoping to learn a lot more about it here.
