front brake line repar

hey guys I'm new to posting on this forum and am looking for a little help with a brake probkem I have.
(problem) I have a leaking hard break line that runs acrost the rear of my front bumper conecting my left front brake to the right. It is leaking at the fitting and I can't seem to blead my brakes. I am looking for a parts list for the line (ie. Brake line size and fiting sizes part #s for NAPA or shucks would be ideal) I am trying to fix my yj intime for an annual camping and riding trip in mid june.

Hi guys, I want to put a 3rd brake light on, but I can't figure out where to route the wires so that it doesn't tear off every time I open the tailgate, and get cut when I close it. Does anyone have pictures of their routing???

I know there's a couple of write-ups on the forum but I wasn't able to find them again. If someone has a link it would be great too!

Thanks.

Hello Everyone, I am looking for a write up/walkthrough on removing A/C from my 89 YJ 4cyl...it no longer works, the compressor bearings are going out. It hasn't locked up yet but I feel it will soon. If anyone has one or can point me in the correct direction I would greatly appreciate it!

Thanks in advance

King

I'm looking for a write up about converting 3 speed trans of a 94 YJ sitting behind the 4.0 to the ax-15 5 speed. It' something I've wanted to do for a while, and finally have the time to get around and do some major upgrades and modifications. I PROMISE to post images and write ups of the custom work i do.

on the forum home page scroll down to fabrication and look for swing out tire carrier and bumper by berzrk. He lists everything he used. Sizes and where he got the parts from. Has deminsions of his bumpers too.

YJ Fuel Sending Unit

I have a question for anyone out there regarding fuel sending units and compatibility...

About 2 months ago my '93 YJ died on the way to get gas (my fuel gauge hasn't worked since I got it). I walked to the gas station to get a gallon, and after 3 trips and 5 gallons later it still wouldn't start. I got it towed the 1/2 mile home and proceeded to get 6 more gallons and it still wouldn't start. I talked to two mechanics, one of whom only works on jeeps and found after some troubleshooting that the fuel pump was the problem. I ordered the exact replacement pump from Bosch and installed, but after installation had trouble getting the fuel sending unit/pump assembly back into the tank. One of the mechanics came and we were able to get the pump in and later I was able to get it started. After 10 minutes I realized I was leaking a massive amount of fuel and turned it off. Frustrated, I got it towed to a shop, which was June 16th. After their troubleshooting, they told me the tub inside the tank had been damaged and the bolts around the assembly had broken off...long story short I needed a tank and possibly a new sending unit as the one I had probably had a bad connection. I have now bought a used tank and sending unit from a Jeep restoration shop, but my problem is that this "new" sending unit has two wires leading to a male flat plug and my original has three wires.

Is there a way to make this work without ordering a brand new fuel sending unit?

I'd like to see a write up on extending the wheelbase in a road/highway safe construction.

I've seen a few with shackle reversals, which if i remember correctly isn't very safe on the road. This is my DD we're talking about.

I don't think I've ever seen a shackle reversal done for a WB stretch, nor can I imagine how that would help stretch it.

However SR should actually improve the road manners, when done in the front. It lets the suspension flex backwards when going over bumps which is a more natural direction, with the shackle on the front the axle tries to move forward into the obstacle.

I would like a write-up about removing the dashboard. I'm planning to insulate the "firewall" plus the tub.
Thanks in advance
