New ZJ Project

Hey all, haven't been on the site as much as I plan to in the future. Jeep Forum has always provided great insight to DIY. As mechanically inclined that everyone props me on and I execute, I have a couple ???

93ZJ 148k- GC Limited 4.0 4x4 Reese hitch

I am replacing the Valve cover gasket, radiator, all lines including tranny (all fluids will be flushed before driven). I am ready for the work with a clean valve cover but it is delayed by rain....

*Will I need to flush the engine with a quart of oil before I start to get rid of any moisture that may have accumulated? (It was a steady to light rain for around 12 hours) I put the valve cover in it's place with no gasket to help...

Since I'm getting new tranny lines and flushing with machine and gasket will I need to do anything extra?

This is going to be my 2nd girlfriend so I only want the best for her, what my baby wants my baby gets!

Do an aux cooler for the tranny while you're doing cooling, it will help.

Don't go overboard on changing too many things at once. Why change the lines? They don't go bad! If radiator is leaking consider getting it re-cored. If it ain't leaking leave it be until it does. Don't worry about moisture in the oil. Unless it got water in the oil it is OK. Start with the "must do" first, and nothing else. There will be plenty more must do coming up.
