Will '88 AMM fit a '92?

Got a AMM from a junkyard '88 740, hoping it would fit my 240 (as a
spare). It checks out fine with the multimeter (as per the tests in
Bentley). Unfortunately, looks like the AMM's changed from 88 to 89.
If I recall from my reading, the pre-89 ones had a manual idle
adjustment.
Question: can I use this 88 AMM on my 92?
Thanks.
--Robert

if the part numbers match, you're good to go.

No.
The 88 AMM is adjustable.
The 92 AMM is not adjustable.(computer controlled)
If the adjustable one is installed on the 92 model
it will run very rich and pump out black smoke.
The wires wires that come from the brain into
each AMM are not the same signals.
You could possibly fry the fuel brain and/or AMM
if the wrong one is connected.

Yes I need one how do you know that it works? I mean properly, I had a
car where it would malfunction and I swapped it from my other car so I
could use a spare if it is ok.

Let me know where you are as well, please,

Dan

Re: Will '88 AMM fit a '92?

Hi Dan,
I'm in Canada.
The AMM came out of a 1988 740 which I was told was running when it
came to its final resting place. I ran the multimeter checks that
Bentley recommends and it checked out fine, well within the ranges
given (you check resistance at 2 different connector pairs). So as far
as I know it should work, but I can't test it on my '92. If you're
interested email me offline at rastlouis@rogers.com and we can set
things up.
Cheers.
