Did all the removal stuff to replace my water pump. Cleaned the engine and swapped the water pump studs and bypass tube. All ready to put it back together tomorrow.


'94 ZJ, 4.0, D30/D44A, 4 1/2" lift, 32" tires, 3.73 gears, etc... Just another cookie cutter ZJ.

you should have everything you need for an alignment. The 4x4xplor link says to turn the tie rod, not the adjusting sleeve. TJs have adjusting sleeves and TREs on both ends of the main shaft of the TRE. V8 ZJs don't. I can't say I'm familiar with the I6 ZJs though. I know they have a different tie rod setup. The idea is there though and it's a really easy adjustment to make. Keep in mind, for the 249, 0 toe is optimal. Neither of those links mention that because the 249 never came in TJs.

Assuming you don't have a leak.....
I would bleed them again or have it pressure bled.
I assumed going from drums to disc needed a prop valve.
My thinking is if no prop valve there, then the same line pressure is going to the rear as the front.
So in a hard braking situation where vehicle weight ends up on the front, the rear (being lighter ,but having the same line pressure )will lock up which leads to instability. Same reason a lot of late model trucks had abs on the rear only, so your *** won't try to pass your front when it locks up. I was just going to do a t block prop valve back on the rear axle.

Regardless of t-case, I'd shoot for as close to 0 toe as possible if the TREs, etc. are in good shape. It's got a slightly increased death wobble risk, but will help gas mileage and tire wear slightly.

PO had installed a new draglink, steering wheel is off center. There are a few strange repairs the PO did that I will repair correctly, if possible.
I am replacing the CAs, cam bolts, 2 BB and shocks. Currently it does drive ok, but it does like to dart around a bit. I have not checked the TREs or ball joints yet. With 220,000 miles I figure the steering box could stand some adjusting.

If you're running the stock 195* t-stat, you should be aiming for low to come on at 210 and high at 215 - 220. If low comes on at 195 or 200, it'll never shut off once the Jeep warms up.

195 and 205 - 210 are good set points for a 180* t-stat though.

How long did you wait between adding and checking? The oil may have still been draining down to the pan, or it's possible you didn't get a good read the first time. It's definitely 1 quart between the lines on my 5.9.

should have added:
Currently have a 180 thermostat in the jeep right now. I live in southern Crapifornia and really want the jeep to stay cool in the summer. starting to warm up... was 106 yesterday.

Just checked the BMW thermo switch I used. 195 low signal, 210 F high signal. 180 thermostat.
Think I am on to something here? or DOING IT WRONGGG! haha
thanks for the tips!
