Im going to leave it on just in case the e fan kicks the bucket and I can use my spare mech. fan temporarily. I have just enough clearance with the e fan that it won't bother anything.

I left mine on too because nobody ever knows if something is going to happen.

Finished up rewiring my power windows, ran the tan power line to one of my switches so I didn't have to mess around with the door jam with it. Also re soldered the neg black wire to the windows. All works now, but the window switches will work with out the key in the ignition so I have to remember that.

also realized that the pink wire that is cut I. The door jamb is either a power or neg. to the door light. Do you think this is a good explanation for my dome light fuse to keep popping? I unplugged the bulb and crimped the wire for now because I didn't have any small wire to fix it.

I also put pipe insulation on my heater core lines to help the fluid warm up faster and to keep it warmer. A nifty little idea I saw on here last night. here's a picture of what the guy did.

The JY gods are smiling!

This morning I found a brand new alt on a zj in the local yard, and the cup holder inserts. Rerun my searches and the next yard over has 2 5-speeds and a niner. Gonna make a run up and see what's left.

So I bought a stock intake tube and air box, I currently have a k&n cold air, but it's broken, so I tried to replace the k&n with the stock tube and box, however when I put the stock one on, the threaded post to secure the tube is in a different position on the throttle body then where it is on the tube. Basically the threaded post on my t/b is closer to the front then the hole on the intake tube (air hat) was there a difference in throttle bodies, between zj years?

No, every 93-98 ZJ uses the same airhat on the V8. There is an adaptor to kick the stud over when using the stock air hat. That adaptor is removed when the K&N kit is installed. Buy a piece of threaded rod and bend it into an "S" shape if you know what i mean. That will solve your problems.

It would have to be an internal thread to external threaded rod, I haven't seen one of those... I saw one of those kickers except on a diagram, so I'll be on the look out for that...

Uh what? its a piece of threaded rod? You thread it into the throttle body, bend it, and it slips through the hole in the air hat. They you simply put the wingnut on it. Very easy.

op should try the j/y for a replacement airhat bracket and pick up a dakota airhat while your there then stop to the hardware store for a carriage bolt and a grinder disk to trim the hood for clearance

lol it sounds easy but you will need something to stand on unless your jeep is a lowrider it will give you a pain in the back trying to reach it

you can try climbing up there but its really easy to break a turn signal doing it this way ask me how i know lol
