Points, Carbs and leaf springs are dear to my heart and old jeeps. Unless Jim or louis is along, there aren't many leaf springs left, and I might be the only carb left in the entire group. I know for sure no one was still running points...but even I moved on from points....
I've never wheeled a v8...although hopefully the 58 wagon with sbc will wheel one day. When I had a cj7 it was a 258, but that motorcraft carb ran really well here in Colo. It took some work with the R2g carb on the current 70v6 to get it right, but its so nice now. Sounds like you've done your HW on the amc 20...I never had a problem with mine but only ran 33s with LSD. 35s with locker is new ball game, but sounds like the 1piece chromoly shafts usually do the trick.
