Just checked and it is a Doorman pipe. I will have to check fitment to see if they corrected the problem.

Did my radiator in January so it was wrong then. Also don't use the Dorman damper either, mine isn't completely true but does work. It has left me with an annoying belt chirp though.

Well I actually got to do some work on the WJ today.
The Lifters have been in that oil for a month now.
I also got to put the pistons in and torqued the rod caps

I ordered my timing chain and sprocket set along with the chain snubber from my dealer. Didn't like the aftermarket sets Advance and the like were selling so I walked in and told my parts guy to give me the absolute best price on these parts he could give me. Ended up paying about $90 for everything.

Also, use your broken piston for a desk paperweight, its what I did with mine!

Didn't do much today because of the rain. I did check on this water pump inlet tube. It was approximately the same, but it did need a bit of tweaking to have the right angles. It is also a hair shorter than the original.
