Over the last few days I went and picked up a crank shaft position sensor trying to fix my no start issue. One of the most inaccessible places on the damn jeep! Up on top of the transmission and behind the engine. And to top it off.... Rusted bolts. Aaarrrgggghhhh!!! My worst enemy!

I tried everything I could possibly think of to get the upper bolt off. Two cans of PB blaster, torque wrenches, special extractors, drill outs and drill bits, hammers, pry bars, propane torches and tons of hard working elbow grease to no avail....

So I got out my trusty dremel tool and cut that ****** out!!!

So I got the Sensor in and still nothing. I ended up pulling my PCM and brought it down to the parts store. They sent it out for a refurb and it took almost 2 weeks for it to come back. They called me the other day and I went right down there and picked it up.. Look how shiny it is!! so I plugged it in and wired everything back up and.... it started right up!!!!!

Once I knew it was working, I used a tree in my yard and unspooled my new 10000lb Superwinch and rewound it up. Then took her out for a little spin around town to make sure things were working good. Then I called up a buddy of mine and we went and got muddy! haha

Drove around the yard with my 3 year old nephew the other day. He absolutely loved it!

Well had some issues arise the other day... My front pinion bearing pretty much exploded. I limped it back to the house and now have to wait a few days before I can tear into...again! My thought is that we didn't set the crush sleeve correctly last time we had it apart.

Well still no recent work done to the jeep. Right now it's sitting on jack stands with front wheels and axles out and diff is out. I'm replacing both inner & outer bearings/sleeves/shims for the pinion. Luckily it seems everything else is ok. None of the teeth are chipped so that's a good thing.

So over the summer I picked up a few new snowmobiles. I got a 1998 arctic cat ZR600 and a 2000 arctic cat zr500, both in great shape. So tinkering on them is a priority for winter fun!

It's been a while since I've been on here so I figured I should stop in and give an update..... Nothing new on the Jeep lol. Been riding and working on the snowmobiles a lot this winter. Ended up crashing the ZR500 and have to replace the left side control arms. That's whats taking up my time in the garage right now. Hopefully in the next few weeks the sleds will be put away and the Jeep will start getting some love! Still need to replace the pinion bearings and get that all put together correctly.

I love it when Brown Santa shows up! I just ordered a new bearing kit as well as the tools I need to finish my front end. Hopefully in the next few weeks this will be installed!

I ordered a new LuK clutch with a metal TO bearing. It just arrived today!! I've also got all the sleds out of the garage and have been cleaning up/organizing my garage so I can start on the front end bearings. Once those are in then I'll install the clutch.
