I just scooped up a 231 from a pull-your-own-part JY for $20.
Though you are right, out of 8 ZJs in the JY 2 had 249s, 5 had 242s and the one lone 231 that was there found itself a new home.

The 231 has absolutely NO leaks, and I'm hoping it has been rebuilt by looking at it. The seals look fairly new(definitely not 20 year old w/212Kmi. on them) and all the seams have super black rtv oozing out of them.

I have to take it apart to change the input shaft, so I'm planning on getting a new chain & seals for the 231.... "Just in case"

just changed starter, starter relay, battery, battery cables and battery clamps to get my jeep to crank and nothing. Found out my neutral safety switch came unplugged and everything works fine now.

I found the thread just in case anyone wanted to see the results of extreme weight reduction which is basically free HP.

its 1/10th second q/m reduction for every 10 lbs removed

not 1 hp

otherwise i would gain 30-40 hp from taking my fullsize spare out

and teflon wiperfluid gives you 15 hp when you spray it in the q/m

It's a 1/10 of a second for every 100 pounds removed or equal to 10 hp. The OP is correct. 10 pounds would equal 1 hp. Your not going to gain 4/10ths from removing your spare.

I hate when old people poke me at weddings, point and whisper, "You're next." So I've started doing the same thing to them at funerals

If your spare weighs 30 lbs you would net maybe 3 HP.

I have got to be the luckiest jeep owner in the world. So I got my 1 3/4 in drop pitman arm from IRO the other day and just got time today to swap them out. So originally my steering wheel was a lil left while going straight so I also got a new tierod end cuz that one was wore out. It was 19 splines out to start after swapping everything it was 13 splines out and my steering wheel is straight up and down. Now i have to adjust my IRO dual stabilizer to fit back in the right but on the test drive I noticed a big difference already in response and stiffness good job IRO! I couldn't have aligned it any better if i actually tried thank god something on this ZJ worked out now well see if we got any wobble. It never ends does it.

You could gain like 100hp by removing your engine and trans.

Fuses are fine, wires are fine, nothing seems to be out of place. Going to assume it's just because it's got almost 190K on the clock, might be time to replace...

In any matter, they are all getting replaced when I pull the engine out and put it into my YJ.

You gain no HP by removing or adding weight. You do increase/decrease power/weight though.

Discovered my axle is bent...

All about that unibody life.

It's just a way to express the equivalent HP of the weight difference since HP is being used up by the weight of the vehicle.

So take the weight which is roughly 4000lbs and divide by the HP. For a 5.9 4000/245= 16lbs. So each HP has to move 16.32lbs. Reduce the weight and each HP has to move less LBS which makes it faster.
