What is this on my new engine?

Anyone recognize this fitting that is sticking out of the oil filter mount on my new engne?

I screwed the old adapter from my old block in there dead center, but don't want to pull this 1.5" rod out until someone seconds my opinion that it is from the reman process and got left there....




Help.

Had this in my rebuild thread, http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f12/t...ilding-869713/ but wanted you to see it incase your not a thread fan...I just need some quick attention on this one.

I can't see your pics, they're blocked here at work, but I think you might get an explanation in this article.

Looks Like just a spring pin. I think it was a leftover. It would be impossible to screw the filter on with that there. Im not !00% certain tho.

There is a roll pin sicking out about a half inch right next to the threaded part for the filter. Maybe 1/4 diameter. Odd. Maybe someone can snap a pic without a filter to compare. What engine?

There should be a 90* angle oil adapter that is what hold it in place from turning.

Ah! The first pic had the block number for you tech guys. Block 53008405, 1991 YJ 4.0 I6 242.

Sorry!

Max, when you get outta work, you gotta look...your article is neat but I don't know if it applies here. I would love an angle, but the article was not 91 YJish so is it possible?

Thats the catch. There was NO adapter on my old block, just a male-male nipple, now seen screwed into the middle of the pic with the mle threads out for the filter.

My wife's '93 has an XJ 4.0L in it with an angle adapter. The angle adapter can be used on any 4.0L block, to the best of my knowledge.

I actually prefer having it on hers and I will install one on my '91 4.0L if I ever get around to it.

If a 90 degree adapter should be there - shouldnt the threaded bit be missing?

Took the threaded nipple from my old core and placed on this block. My old core has a HOLE where that rod went, but no rod. I don't want to break this off until totally sure.

Max's article (which I like, since I was researching this like MAD yesterday on google and came across similar...his article is better by far) shows the rod in some pics, or what I think is the rod.

I'm so perplexed. If you have ever seen my flowchart, I am at about beer 12 on this and googled out, so I posted this!

I have even read the FSM and Haynes with no luck.

I got a 90* adaptor from a Cherokee I prefer it over the other options available over the years.

I think you need more beer then you won't care anymore and just yank it out.

The pics in the link are fairly blurry, but I think the part the author refers to as a "little tube" is what you are describing on your 4.0L block.

I don't think it's a "tube" at all. I believe it to be a roll pin, as previously mentioned by dodger889, that keeps the adapter from spinning.

If you are NOT using a 90 degree angle adapter, I think it should be removed, as opposed to breaking it off.
