Any links to said covers?

It's been a while. I think they were cover king. I googled it. They made convertible cav s so they are out there. I'll see if I can find the ones I was looking at.

Thanks. I get lucky everyone once in a while.

I put a power steering cooler in the jeep yesterday. My power steering fluid was puking out when it got to hot on the trail. The fluid itself was toast so I got this cooler from Pep Boy's for $30. Came with the cooler, hose, and clamps. Not too bad.

Hopefully it helps out.

Let us no how this works out, may have to add one myself. I switched to a higher pressure ps pump from a 4.7l WJ and mine has been overflowing on the trail. Given I had way too much in there but I didn't like how hot it was getting. I was forced to use the resevoir attached to the pump instead of my stock yj one which was remote. The outlet hose was way big and couldn't b swapped over. The new pump works like a champ n I can steer locked in 4wd again but I don't want it running too hot. I think I might stop at the junkyard and get a tranny cooler tmrw...

Will do.

A trail ride in the Summer will give me an idea. If it doesn't help then I'm only out $30. At least it gives some peace of mind and it can't hurt. I may look into the better pump. The pump and box on my jeep are the OEM ones from 1993 so they may be due.

If u decide u want to try the pump, ill mayb do a little write up. Unless u want to swap to the newer intake style 99+ it won't just bolt right on to our yjs. I had to tap all the bolt holes and switch a few fittings but man does it make a difference. I def thinks its getting to hot tho because it flowed over as u said n I'm reading that means its too hot. I think that little cooler could b the ticket. I looked into the psc pump and its only 1500 psi, or stock pump is 1450, and the WJ one is 1950psi. I'm not really sure how the psc one would make much of a difference. I can turn my wheel with just my fingers offroad now, I used to have to muscle it on every turn.

I may do the upgrade when my stock pump goes out. Until then I don't have the drive. I'm curious why the PSC is that much better than stock?

My next small project. I'll post up a few more pics and details when I'm done.

Hopefully well. I'm going to get some return springs from the junkyard and see how it goes.

I went by the junkyard today and got some little things here and there. I found a return spring and some little attachements for the throttle body. Here is how I setup my linkage for the hand throttle. I tried to find a washer for the adjuster screw but had no luck. I was about to give up until I saw a spark plug gapper in my toolbox. The hole looked to be to the right size and what do you know, it fit perfect. It was even countersunk.



I noticed from other write-ups that there was a return spring on the throttle body and since I didn't have one, I looked for one. Couldn't find the spring on a Jeep so I snagged one off an import and made it work with the little plastic head. I think this will help the hand throttle return. I actually got the handle from an exercise bike I saw in the dumpster in Griffin, GA. I even took a pic and posted a good many pages back. I still need a cable crimp sleeve to hold it but I haven't been to Home Depot. I just tied it in a knot to see how it did. Works pretty good by the way.



I also found a nearly untouched Saab 900. Snagged the sensor housing and will most likely do the Porsche 944 temp switch, eventually.

My Saab housing was rusted pretty badly. I covered it with Jb weld
