Not sure where the leak could be because I've had this thing completely apart and back together again over the last four months.
We have on and can use it but you are a few hrs away. Narrow it down by going to the parts store and getting a can of B12 Chemtool, then start spraying little bits around intake, vacuum hoses, manifolds, carb/throttle body, brake booster, and any area that can have a leak. You can also pinch off vacuum hoses one at the time to see if a solenoid or vsv is stuck open/close/leaking. All your noticing and hearing is an rpm change.

I got it it was the new intake/exhaust manifold gasket. It had a small crease in it when I got it, but thought it would be OK once torqued down. Not so lucky.

Glad you got it fixed. It's always nice to see the end result in problematic posts. Thanks for wrapping it up, Tim.

Rubicon summer job
DOT needs Rubicon help. Temporary summer job, probably around 3 months, $15/hr, you would be working on the Rubicon trail, Sunday evenings through Thursdays (staying on the trail and being fed), pretty much manual labor; if interested, call Nancy at DOT 530-642-4909; will be starting by end of June

I'll be up there that Friday night, should be a fun weekend. Jeep just needs to do minor things to the jeep so is nice to not be really stressed out to get a list of things done.

hey aztec! welcome I'm a new member here with a rubi also.
Living out here in the bay and wondering if you had found any clubs?

I'm looking around for something in the Easy Bay or even out in SF if need be.
Would like to get more involved and hang out with like jeepers

Madhatters are out of Livermore. There is a small group of us in Tracy if you're looking for another jk rubi to park next to. There is no shame in jumping from club to club to maximize the amount of wheeling you do!!
