Pretty sure I found the root cause of my intake leaks.

The overall length of the sleeves/ spacers at l over the place. Max variance of .102".

Not sure if I should install/ tweak/ refab individually, per bolt location or try to get a new set and do the same with the new ones.

Obviously, shipping takes time and my buddy's Memorial ride is next weekend.... FML.

Here's a pic. Was tough to get a good one.


The shortest one is one I had to modify to make it work for the location it was in.

Wouldn't a 4.0l header style exhaust with the collector cut off and repositioned be a easier mount than that?

Not sure that would address my issue.

The problem is the difference in thickness between the header flange and the 'shoulders' on the intake.

Regardless of that header I put on there, there will still be a huge mismatch because of the the height of the 'shoulder'

...if that makes any sense
(only on my first cup of coffee...)

Makes sense

There would still be mismatched clamping points.

That picture look like something from Stonehedge.



One would think they should all be the same height from intake clamp point the header clamp point though.

Offenhauser has since redesigned the intake so that the clamping surface is the same as a standard header flange....

Does me no good, since they redesigned it AFTER I bought min....

Went to the garage fully intent on staying there until the intake was sealed.

Planned on gabbing new sleeves/ spacers. Got all my stock cut. My jig set up. Grabbed the welder - no wire. I love my kids.... Lol.

Figured short of that, MOST of my existing sleeves would work.... IF I had all of the bolts...
One went missing, and is still on the run...

Decided to JB Weld my new sleeves in the mean time. Shouldn't be a problem...

Now my question is , can I use a standard Grade 5 bolt temporarily until I get a replacement?

Thanks LG

I don't think the JB has to hold up any longer than getting them torqued down.
The pressure should hold everything in place after than.

I think it's only one that actually needs to be replaced, but I made a few.

Going to pick up more wire anyway and do it right.

Just to be on the safe side.....

Hoping I will get to fire the Jeep back up tonight.

That is, IF I can find that missing bolt (because the cupped washer is with it ) and IF I can get that 42 piece PS pump bracket back together....

Fingers crossed.....

It's Alive....!!!!

Finally got everything bolted back on after fabbing p a couple of spacers.

Fired right up after duel got to it.

Didn't spend the time waiting for the choke to kick off and all of that jazz.
It was 9:30 and the neighbors probably wouldn't have liked that.

I am out of work a little early tomorrow and will go and check for any leaks, etc...

All in all, a good night....
