I'm thinking I'll just try and fix this old jeep up instead of getting a new one. It might be the wrong decision, but it seems like the easiest,quickest way. The engine is the only big thing, but it might just be one of those noisy old engines. I don't even know what year it is for sure. It's been changed. What year did they go to the tube style exhaust manifold? Supposedly it's from an 89, but I've come to the conclusion that the seller was a liar.

The log style was 87-90. Anything further was tubular...doesn't mean its not a old motor with newer header.
Check out round the 3rd & 4th cylinder, on the drives side. You will find 4 number. 2686 is 87-90. 7120 is 91-95. 0630 is 96-99. 0331 2000-2006.

I would clean it up, grease things up, solve small issues, like leaks, warm parts ect ect. You've got a great base so build off it and fix it up some,

Cool, first set is 5300558 and second set is 910MX18, which means as far as I can tell, built October 18th, 1989.

Thanks, I guess he didn't lie about that at least.

Just got off the phone with rubicon express. Your seal number from national 473317. Or you can get it at timkco, or napa..just gotta have them cross reference for their part number, My kit I have is from 97+ which uses a separate seal, so no need for the red flange(seal holder) or seal. Your kit is for pre 96 which rely on the tail cone as a seal..so the HnT replaces the cone, thus no seal..so your kit has the red flange and seal. hope that helps ya out.

Napa should be able to get you that seal or cross reference for the right part number if nothing else. Here it is on amazon for a few bucks.
