You and me both. I was holding off check due to fear. I was pleasantly surprised. To be clear I wasn't redlining either. I take it pretty easy on the RPM's.

Hoping mine looks the same way! Close as you can get to "problem solved" with the factory OPDA!

Yeah. Today was the first day. I didn't check for oil overflow. I'll check tomorrow. Otherwise no issues. I did get my "just changed the oil" tick.

That has to be the most baffling thing I've ever seen on a combustble engine. Fresh oil = ticking at start up. It makes me not want to change my oil!

Amen to that! I was originally concerned with this simply because the previous owner reinstalled the OE OPDA with 45k in the new engine. I was deeply relieved when I saw that the cam gear still looked new.
One thing that I would recommend to everyone is to coat the OPDA gear with engine assembly lube prior to reinstalling it.

It might just be the "you own a 4.0 tick"

No, I know exactly what he's talking about. A loud tick at start up that occurs more commonly for about the first 250 - 500 miles after an oil change.

What exactly do you think this will do? Plus there are several types of "assembly lube" from oils to pastes, each with a different purposes. They are all either for torquing, protection during installation or assembly, or for initial lubrication. All of which are not needed when reinstalling a used OPDA.

No trying to bust your balls, but it would be nice to keep this thread/process clean and simple and stuck to the facts, without any extra Chicken Little induced processes.

Thanks

I received the half coupling today. I'll try to get pics up tonight with a mock assembly. It's raining here so I'll have to wait a few days to install.

I get a tick for only a few seconds right after the oil change. Also no tick with Mobil 1 TDT, but a lot more ticks with the Valvoline VR1

Well the half coupling didn't work. Not without some modification. It literally is a half coupling. So the one side will thread normally. The opposite side is threaded in the same direction so it would require a left hand thread nipple. I'm going to see it I can "retrain" the opposite threads tomorrow by chasing it with a right hand tap. Although I suspect it will be mangled it just has to be good enough to be tight and not leak. I think since it's aluminum I might get lucky.

The only other alternative to adapt the FogMod is to shorten the nipple and normal coupling so everything mates well. I don't have the tools for that without it looking like Frankenstein.

Update again tomorrow.

Hello to all.... after reading the hunderads of posts and looking over the wonderful photos everyone has taken I'm still left with 1 question. Is the new sensor P#CDC0E051AB (Cam Sensor and Oil pump Drive Gear Package) that my dealer has informed me will be used on my 2005 TJ due to a recall going to be a "GOOD" replacement part. currently I have around 77K miles and have no problems with whats in there. Went to the dealer today, jeep was placed on a DRB III scan tool and was told that I had 1deg of "SLOP" in relationship to the cam/oil gear. Was told that they were still going to replace it due to the recall but would take about 3-4 days for the part to show up.

After reading all this information and being put into information overload I'm left wondering "Is the new part there puting in going to be good"?????
