reminds me when a guy side swiped my ZJ a few years ago

took out a corner of my hanson bumper, headlights, header panel, grill, fender, steering box and hood

i gathered up ALL of my receipts for EVERYTHING i have put on my Jeep ...... came up with thousands of dollars in receipts....

bottom line... insurance cut me a check for $4,000 and NO SALVAGE TITLE... i was able to come up with enough receipts to raise the value of the 93 ZJ so much that i got 4,000 flat out and they did not consider it a total loss.

I too got it running! And my oil pan is leaking also. But more importantly when I get to 2k rpm it shutters and rpms bounce between 1500 and 3k! First I thought it was the tranny not sure when it wanted to shift, but when I got home it did the same in neutral with me gasing it by hand on the tb. Any ideas guys

225 cubic inches = 3.68 liters, so it would have been marked as a 3.7 if they designated in liters.

Easy but very time consuming for my first time. Didn't have an in/lb torque wrench so I had to kind of guess at one adjustment. Took nearly 11 hrs....if I had to do it again I'm sure it would be only arund 5. The how to on here was extremely helpful but wasn't exactly like my gear box. The 93's had a slightly different box than the later ZJ's. Just took my time and everything went back in well. I was installing the pitman arm to the box when I decided to check for looseness in the gearbox. Had my wife moving the wheel back and forth and notice that the input shaft had an extreme amount of play before the output shaft moved. Removed the box.,redid my adjustments,check the play before installing the box again, and bingo....right on the money. Go her all installed and it works amazing. Considering how old some of my steer components are I was surprised that I had zero play in the steering. I would recommend at minimum doing the adjustments to anyone, anyday. I think I got 90 percent of the air out of my system but gonna carry some extra fluid with me for the next few days, just in case.

So my entire power steering system is virtually new now. New pump, hoses,(installed about a month ago) and rebuilt gear box.....yay for me! :-)

Finally I settled on a set of shocks. The Monroe Sensa-Track. She rides like a dream. I tried their Matic-Plus and they were horrible.
Cheers
