Ok I'm lost again. So it's made for a case that already has 2wd, the 231, but not made for the 242. And I'm back to not understanding again what the need for it is. If you already have 2wd the only reason I see for it is burnouts

I think I sorted my battery/alternator problem. It turned out one of the clamps was loose at the cable side, not the post, so I charged the battery and tighted the clamp on the cable properly and it fired up like a dream. Let's see how it is after work eh? Now I just need to change my control arm bushings, PCM (I think) and maybe the engine harness/battery cables in the next three weeks before registration!

You already have 2wd so you won't be fighting the locker, the crawling on tight trails is understandable, I just have never had a situation that I needed a lower gear then 1st and didn't want 4wd. Not saying you don't have a use for it, I just can't find a use for it.

Mark distributor base to block, and rotor to cap, then remove it. Unplug all wires going to intake, unbolt ac, and move it out of the way. There is a hose on the front of the intake that sucks. Unbolt intake, remove, them unbolt plenum pan, and start cleaning. I learned from my gm engines that it is best to not use the fnr intake gasket rubber pieces, just lay a thick bead of silicone, let it set up and reassemble

I Neil torque everything but heads, and bearing caps, but torque is a good idea. I use great stuff silicone. Because of the stupid hose I recommend letting the silicone set up for an hour, or it's gonna be everywhere as its best to install the hose as the intake goes on.

It adds two wheel drive lo range. Say you don't need the front axle engaged but dont want to go all the way back to 2wd hi. Just pull the lever back one notch from 4lo and you have 2lo. It makes turning with a non-selectable locker upfront on the trail much easier.

Now I can see it, won't have to stop and let all gears stop just for a corner. What's this cost.

My driver side door is really pissing me off. Suddenly within the last 2 days it is sagging like all hell. I have to lift and slam it closed then why I reopen it the inside of the door is catching and pulling on the pillar. So I know what I get to do. I can't afford new hinges right now (as bad as that sounds) so I'm going to try and pull then off and straighten them out... Wish me luck!

Hopefully this is possible...

The pins wear out, you cannot straighten anything. I think pins are cheap as dirt.. should be able to afford them. Checked, rockauto has a pin and bushing kit for $4.17
