Tom Jennings' AMC/Rambler pages
formerly, world power systems
26 apr 2020
Here are my AMC (American Motors) and Rambler pages all in one place. Most
of the information derives from work on my own cars or related research.
Emphasis is on 1958 through 1969 AMCs and Ramblers, especially suspension and
brakes, six cylinder engines, the transmissions available for the sixes (much
more limited than those available for eight cylinder cars), general chassis,
All of my cars are long-distance and daily drivers, so my concentration is
on problem solving and reliability solutions while keeping them "all AMC".
Organization of this page
The pages are now grouped by subject or focus (the list got too long for a
single webpage). This change will not affect bookmarks made in 2020 nor most
made before that.
Rambler 195.6 OHV engine
||The Rambler 195.6 OHV engine
Endurance, reliability, and performance modifications to the Rambler 195.6 ci OHV engine.
||AMC/Rambler factory manuals, catalogs, documents
This section contains full AMC/Rambler parts catalogs in browsable or downloadable form.
How-to documentation and procedures on AMC/Rambler and Nash front suspensions, repair
and maintenance and performance upgrades. Mostly the old stuff, 1950 to 1964 Rambler
American and Nash, but some later work.
How-to documentation and procedures on things AMC Rambler, that are not suspension.
More browsable parts catalogs, repair manuals etc, not issued by AMC directly,
such as Borg Warner, brakes, etc. This includes a few AMC fan webpages saved from older
||Cars and projects
Cars I have owned, wrenched, and projects I've done on (to, with) them. Some of these are the
sources of the slightly-more-formal how-to's above.
||Other cars and car stuff
Non-AMC things go here, but there are three pages and many photos of the Barney Navarro
Indy 500 Rambler test mule engine I bought at auction back in 2005.
Here are some spreadsheets, shared Google Sheets. The parts list are what I
have installed on the car and know to work -- sometimes this is hard-won
knowledge. Anything speculative is marked as such (and is often useful later
when something goes scarce). The other spreadsheets do things like calculate
RPM/MPH based upon metric tir size and gear ratios, very handy for doing
what-if's on tires and wheels. These open a new page or tab in yoru browser.
