This is from earlier this yr.
Dorman has a complete ’04 OPDA with a gear that is supposed to work by re drilling it.
Rock Auto has them I think the # is DORMAN 689-200. It is called Camshaft Synchronizer. It is $32.


Not the same as the Crown gear.


Also note that for either gear you don't have to drill a new hole through (into) the shaft.

Hey guys,
So I got my new OPDA today but I'm not sure how to get the roll pin out without pounding on it. I'm afraid that if I do that, then i'd snap the housing in half.

How did you guys get it out?

-Thanks!

look at section 7 under modification on the first post

use a pin punch and a hammer with the OPDA in a vice, then tap out the roll pin

the pin punch should be about 0.5mm below the diameter of the roll pin hole

I put mine in a vise and knocked it out with a punch and a hammer

So you can remove the shaft and drill the bushing as part of the mod. You definitely want to go back to and re-read about it.

It's to FogMod it. Even though it's new, it still needs to be modded. I got the pin out by setting it on a 2x4 and punched the pin out.

To be honest, I don't even know if mine is going bad, I'm just doing this out of paranoia. I'm assuming it is because it's got over 100k miles on it.

I pulled my opda yesterday and replaced it with a new unit,although I found unusual wear on the gear and a groove cut in the shaft the assembly seemed to turn smooth with no binding.I have a 2005 wrangler with 62,000 miles and missed the recall date by 4 days.I will be ordering another new unit and doing the modifications to it,my question is when I get the new unit and dissasemble it can I reuse the same rollpin to put the gear back on or should I go with a new one?thank you

You can use the same roll pin. Size 3/16 punch. Make sure the gear goes back on the same way. The hole is offset on the shaft so if you put the gear on backwards it will wedge and eventually break something. It will be pretty obvious if the gear in on wrong. Look in the hole and if you see any gear on the other end it's wrong.

I'm going to chime in here with a couple of questions of my own on this issue. I'm sure my question has been covered already but with 2 small children at home i dont have the luxury of time to read every post on this subject. I have read a large portion of the posts on the threads of this topic. I have a 2005 LJ Rubi which i purchased from the original owner. Original owner said they always changed oil with mobil1 full synthetic oil and i have continued to do the same. The jeep now has 52,000 miles on it and i am experiencing no issues that i atribute to the OPDA subject. I checked with the local dealer here and it appears my OPDA was replaced back in 2005 while the Jeep was still in their stock. From what i gather there was no upgrade or repair to this issue so what did they replace it with? Just another factory OPDA of the same stock? Anywho, i have a feeling that i will at some point experience an issue with this OPDA. I am very proactive in the preventative manintenence dept. so i would like to address the issue before it becomes a problem since i may be taking this Jeep on a 3500 mile journey soon. What i gather from the posts i have read here is that i should buy a stock replacement OPDA from the stealership and do the fogmod upgrade to it. Do i have this correct? Thanks in advance for any beneficial advise.

That is my plan, I see no alternative.

dandaman,
If it’s an early ’05 it may have been part of the ones that had the gear replaced as part of the infamous E05 TSB. It was discovered early on that some gears were “bad”. The TSB went out & the dealers were instructed to replace the gears. Apparently most were still in dealer stock so they were replaced before delivery. Mine was one of those but still had premature gear wear at less than 20k miles. I would recommend you pull it for inspection before deciding what to do. It may be good & you may not benefit from a new one. Maybe just mod the one you have.

I appreciate the constructive advise. My mechanical confidence in myself does not include engine guts, i am limited to bolt-ons mainly, so i will be in contact with my trusted gear head.

Dan, I just noticed your location. Say hi to Santa! Is there really a dealer at the (in) North Pole? Went by there on the train to Fairbanks in route to Prudhoe Bay some yrs back. I would think jeeping in AK would beat jeeping in NV. From your profile photo it looks like yours is a twin to mine.
