Great news.

I finally found someone willing to come over and help fire up the beast!

Tomorrow night around 1630 EST I think the beast will breathe.

Good luck one the first attempt at starting it. It has to be stress full.

OK, its update time!


Primed engine with verified oil pressure on guage for 30 sec. It hit high a few times and averaged around 40. Got to watch that drill speed.
Adjusted timing (several times), rad, PS installed.

Kept getting error code 24, 33 with a dieseling engine that was sparking and putting heat to the exhaust.

Changed TPS. Gave up around 10:00.

Waited a few minutes and regrouped, I took a meter and rechecked new TPS voltages, and then backfed the TPS while attached to ECU. Tested fine so both ECU and TPS are OK in this regard.

The TPS code is now gone today. I ran an ohm meter on the CPS and it was not in spec, and then tested Manifold Temp and coolant temp sensors. Wasn't spec, and changed them. Now in spec on latest readings. Still dieseling.

Codes showed 33 only now. 33 is AC clutch relay. I have no AC. Checked all fuses with meter and changed some PO errors thanks to FSM Wire Diagrams manual. Still same.

Checked ignition circuit. Checked continuity from inner fuse box to ECU with ign on and off and seemed to pass logic. Checked ECU harness connector pins 3,9,11 and 12 for 12V(3,9) and ground (11,12) - OK

ECU is not the correct part number for this jeep. PO had gotten it from junk yard due to case markings with yellow crayon. ECU connector nut was broken out of board by PO, leaving possible water entry to board.

That all I can do to assume it could well be Mr. ECU at this time, so I just ordered a reman unit. If that doesn't solve it who knows. Maybe I will pull the O2 sensor to allow vent to see if I am getting backpressure from CAT?

If that ECU is not bad after taking it apart and looking inside.....it will be soon. Also the part # is so far out of whack from 91-93 parts listings...it can't be helping

Don't worry about error 33 as long as you don't have A/C. It'll always be there, annoying as it is.

follow on tests...

Tested continuity from ECU pins to each injector, and each injector ground circuit. Verfied continuity through each injector. Verified CPS circuit. Verified fuel pressure drop test (lost 20lb in 30 min, from 39...in spec), Coil seems OK (resistance and spark). Verified with wire diagram each injector is on correct harness. Verified oil pressure with crank (distrib is spinning), fuel tank guage is getting power. Reverified continuity and contact of grounds - E-brake area, block to firewall, block at oil stick, wires to battery box firewall area, rear of tub at tail lights ( unique to my rig, wired for trailer ).

Still think computer even though I get CEL at key turn. Might be another apart of computer other than caps.

Yesterday I installed my Tom Wood's driveshafts. The front was a straight install and tighten. The rear was to check the pinion angle.

I set the rear pinion so that it faced directly to the Atlas rear output and was in line with the drive shaft...just like Tom said.

Today, I took Tom's rear drive shaft off, and tack welded the perches and shock mounts, then I removed the rear axle.

I then welded the perches, and the mounts. I also stitch welded the tubes to the steel cast casing with my MIG, using .035 flux wire. Took several passes over the course of two hours. Welded about an inch each time and then rotated tubes and worked on both sides of the differential.

Took hours because it was about 90 * + in VA today, and I was wearing protection and HOT. I also took my time to peen the welds, clean them, rotate the tube and let it cool naturally. I started the day peheating, but quickly realized I was wasting my time.

Used Hobart Handler 140, set for 4/40 on the stitch, with .035. Took multiple passes. Spec is 4/50 per the hobart manual, but I found 4/40 cleaner and neater. Use a sweep back and forth pattern pushing and pausing on each side of the weld in the base metal. Watch the bead, and watch it burn into the tube and into the casing. Peen, scrub, rinse, repeat on other side.....

Today was a long day. Over the last few days I prepped for today per the herculiner instructions and the YJ forum FAQ Herculiner topic page.

Got the interior, shifter plate, rear door, and steps done...phew.

Tomorrow I add Herculiner UV protectant paint.



Gotta LOVE bugs...UV paint will cure that...

You should put some bright red paint over the herculiner

What's the best easiest way to take off body from frame with common tools. I know about the bolts but how do you lift it off without doing major damage

Tell ya the truth, just get the bolts off, and ensure you have ALL wires, etc disconnected....exhaust hangers, clips...etc etc...

Then take of shifter such to lower the signature of the frame & components to make it easier to lift over.

Then..get two teenagers and a guy from next door, and each grab a corner and walk it off the rear....lift and walk.

As you lift I will almost guarentee that you find something you left attached like a breather hose for rear axle, etc...lower, remove, lift..walk again until clear.

I think Herc is sold red. I chose to do the black route. Today I coated all herculiner with the UV protectant that they sell.

Total usage of Herc was about 2/3 can with two coats on everything, three on tough traffic areas. Total UV bottle usage was about 1/2, and 1 coat applied.

I assembled my Rugged Ridge seats tonight. Big Mistake. I should have gotten Corbeau. I am mad. My fault. PITA and not what I envisioned.
