Yes. It was designed to run at 5º BTDC on as low as 65 octane. Remember, the higher the octane rating, the slower and longer the burn at ignition. You will need to adjust the timing to fire sooner to take advantage of higher octane fuel. But you may encounter starting issues on down the road. Stick with 87 and set your timing according to the procedures outlined here.

Planning on that as soon as my carb part comes. Have a vac gauge,dwell,tach and am gonna check fuel pressure too.thanks again. Wish i could say more .youve helped so much already.they say those that can,do. Those that cant,teach. Youve proven that wrong a thousand times over. Your patience and in depth instructions/answers to any and all question have helped so many of us that have no one else to ask. You sir are a rare and special person.
Non alcohol gas if you can find, it worth paying more for. That E85 crap is like putting poisen in your Jeep. I've run both regular and premium non alcohol in my Jeep and find no real difference other than premium seems to store longer. If you are driving it all the time, then regular is fine. John
