Was washing the jeep off good in order to go rear main and valve cover gasket and noticed this... idk if the bolt backed out or pulled somehow. Gonna monkey with it eventually lol


Been messing with this damn thing trying to get it going. Germans over engineer stuff way to much! Really have the itch to buy a new 600 crotch rocket, R6 or cbr600rr. but that means cutting into my jeep money... hmmm.

Just by a bike I have a chunk if change set back for the right deal. I don't want to spend more that 3500 on a used bike. I'm going to slightly dd the thing. Almost bought a buddies bobber but backed out I was afraid I was settling...looke at quite a few cbr600rr's, R6's, and gsxr's.

yeah if i buy one im gonna buy one new. I know what ppl do to those things lol they get the living **** run out of them. Plus i can finance it which is just simply easier lol helps build credit too.

Not gonna be buying anything soon though. Red needs regear bad. the front axle is now a hummer lol going to Pittsburgh this weekend for a wedding so provided that doesnt break the bank ill take it in next week to get it done.

Replaced valve cover gasket today. Is the different colors of the valves normal? Id say for 192k miles its pretty damn clean under there! I tried to get most of the sludge and crap out.




After i finished it all up and put it all back together go to start it just to make sure nothing is wrong, belt screams like a mofo! Damn alternator locked up At least it died in the driveway lol Thinking about a ZJ v8 one, anyone got a good write up? Also i remember reading a write up on a different belt u can use to bypass the mechanical fan pull to give more room for a electric fan... anyone know of it?

DOES ANYONE KNOW WHERE I CAN BUY A NEW HEAT SHIELD?! MINE FELL APART AND I CANT FIND ONE NEW ANYWHERE!!!

Discovered that the crossmember bolt that was hanging down low was stripped out so now i need to figure out what to do with that? Thinking just tap it to the next bigger size and lock tite, or drill it out a little and through bolt it?


got more cars in at work today...

The valves look alright, though that retainer on the #1 Cylinder looks goofy that might just be the way the oils sitting on it in the picture.

I believe the ZJ v8 alt all you have to do is grind down the stock XJ alt mount and it fits in the same location, I'll try to find the write up for it.

Yeah all you have to do is clearance the brackets.
