Couple questions, when sea foaming the motor, how many cans should be used and for how long before emptying and putting oil back in?

Also does anyone know of a write up on rebuilding/replacing the gear box?

Thanks guys.

Directions are on the can. You don't empty the oil and use only seafoam. Put some in the brake booster line. Mix some into the crankcase. I wouldn't do that though. Only oil goes into mine.

Get a metal clothes hanger. Cut it and attach it under the vehicle so it just barely touches the ground. Voila no more nasty shocks when getting out!

There's a 3 step way to do it 1/3 can into your oil 1/3 can in a full tank of gas and extremely slowly pour 1/3-1/2 can through the throttle body while the jeep is running then shut it off wait 10 minutes and start it back up and rev it for a few minute It will sh*t smoke...keep in mind this is a good way to find leaks in an old vehicle. Also look at YouTube videos there are a bunch of them

I've heard it can really mess up your O2s to run it through the throttle body or brake booster.

Today I went to town I was sitting at a light and I look over in the lane perpendicular to me. And I see a stock Laredo. Looked super clean. And the guy in the passenger seat taps the driver on the arm and pointed to my zj. I think they seen me looking so they gave me a thumbsup.

Partially fixed my exhaust leak by tightening a loose bolt on the passenger side manifold - downpipe flange. Also screwed with how the exhaust was sitting in the back to fix a rattle.
