Finally found a CS144 140A alt at a local yard, after searching for a couple months. Just need to stretch my bracket and pick up some heavy cable to install it. I bought a 12SI to CS adapter a couple months ago from Napa.

Pulled the alt apart today. I had it tested yesterday and it was fine, I just felt like cleaning it up a bit.


Just needs a quick shot of paint and it's ready to install.

Clay is a real PITA to wash off.

Currently on the lookout for a 96-97 Isuzu Rodeo Dana 44. Perfect match for my Waggy 44 with a 6x5.5" bolt pattern, ~60" WMS, and they also have disc brakes which is something Waggy rear 44's do not.

Plus, they only came from the factory with 4.10's, 4.30's, or 4.56's so I can't go too far wrong.

I have a 94 rodeo 44 I am building right now and it is the same legth as my waggy why 96-97.

I will let you know right know the only difference I have found btween the isuzu 44 and say a jeep 44 is the inner pinion bearing and race. It is slightly smaller then the reg. 44.

A quick question how much lift do you have and how do you like the boomerang shackles in the front instead of the straight kind? What kind and are they lift shackles?

I keep hearing conflicting information, some say the earlier leaf sprung rodeo's had a smaller WMS. I haven't had a chance to scour the yards yet.

Does this pose any problems when it comes to regearing? I hope you can still source everything.

I'm running MORE 5/8" Boomerangs and they really don't do all that much over a straight shackle, however they can prevent inverting a leaf when the center bolt contacts the frame (it will hit sooner than a straight shackle center bolt).

At the moment mine are installed upside down, and I haven't had time to flip them yet.

As for gears I am running a set out of a 03 rubicon. It is a thick cut gear and fits on the stock carrier, but you have to drill the hole out of the carrier to 7/16th and get some new bolts. I got mine from my local jeep dealership. my install kit is from that same year, but like i said earlier the inner pinion bearing and race are smaller then the regular 44. So the shims you would use to raise the pinion are to big so you might need to get so smaller shims. I got lucky and was able to use the same set that was on it from stock. The rest oif the bearings are all the same though

Pics fixed...

Pulled the entire MPFI harness out of a '92 Cherokee today along with the alternator, distributor, intake manifold, ECU, and relay/fuse box (fuses and relays included). Total cost of $55. Need to order a CPS kit from Hesco and then I'm set to wire it up.

Fuel Rail/Injectors


Intake Manifold


ECU


Alt/Distributor/Coil


Relay Box


Everything

Over the long weekend I had the jeep ripped apart for some fairly standard repairs. Managed to get it done in two days thanks to some help from a friend getting it back together. I was also pleasantly surprised by the condition of my engine, there was very little sludge in the bottom of the pan and everything appeared to be in great shape.

- new timing gears and chain (I suspected the old ones had skipped a gear, and they had)
- installed CPS damper
- front/rear main seals
- one piece oil pan gasket
- new oil pump

Also, my rear driveshaft has been chirping at me for a little while, so last week i ordered a new spicer center yoke, spicer u-joints, and a strap kit from Action Machine (highly recommended). That order arrived today so hopefully I'll pull and rebuild the driveshaft on the weekend.

Rebuilt the rear driveshaft and all noises are gone.

Also ordered a NP231 cable shifter from Novak today, should be one of the first to get one.
