Why not just get a bigger screw and thread it through the button into the shaft? I wouldnt trust a ziptie because if it gets caught on something then it will mess up your cam sensor or fall into the dizzy and lock it up or worse

A few more things got installed in the ZJ, today. I got around to adding a pair of fog lights to the existing factory switch, I added my rear tow hook, and for the grand finale, I added my DON-A-VEE tire carrier. (fits a 33" as a test fit, fair) I still have to add my "CB setup" to it and get everything ready for the "North TX" trip on 12/07/13. It looks promising with more than 20+ rigs showing up.....

On the ZJ, I got around to doing a check on the fluids, oil change, and tire rotation, The "other half" enjoyed following me to the car wash and tagging along in hers.....

its just on the outside , the part where its held down normally with a cheap screw im going to do this for today only tomorrow im going to the hardware store and getting a nut and bolt set to hold it on permanently but there were some metal shavings flowing about

would that mess with the cam sensor if a few got in the distributor ?

Picked up my XJ front driveshaft today. And my adapter will be here tomorrow. So by Thursday I should be 4wd again, lol

Also FWIW, Drivetrain America has some awesome fast shipping! Ordered last night I think it was, and it'll be here tomorrow.

I looked at it, while thinking about installing my freshly painted JCR sliders. But I was changing the water pump on my friends f150 instead. Hopefully tomorrow I'll get the sliders on.
