Just an FYI on the gasket.
I helped a friend replace his OPDA, and the gasket broke up into several pieces. He didn't order a new one when he got the OPDA, so I went to my parts stash of old distributors to see if any were the same size. I had an old points distributor out of a CJ7 with a V8, and it looked close. Went to AZ and they had a new one in stock for less than a dollar. Perfect fit...

How much wear would there have to be before i decide to replace it?

should I just by a new one, mod it, and install it?

No answer. Just read the messages and look at the various pics. Pull yours, compare, then decide. Most guys just pull and mod and reinstall, then see what happens.
The later mods are somewhat better than the original Fog, but many of us are still running the Fog mod.

wow! I am happy to hear that there may actually be a permanent solution to this issue! I need a new opda with the stripper mod and a new camshaft and I think I will be as good as new.

Once parts are available I will need someone with the proper equipment to send my opda to for the stripper mod.

I think this looks like a great solution to the problem. Put me on the list when you are ready to sell more kits. I have two friends with 05s as well and I plan to alert them to this problem. I just ordered a new OPDA for an 05 and an 04 with the intention of taking them to my friends and former employers who are known for solving these types of problems in the racing industry. My next step was to try to come up with an estimate of the potential sales if they came up with a fix. It looks like I'm a little too late for this. I'm just glad there's a fix for this because I plan on keeping this Jeep for quite some time.

Welcome to the forum, tommy. Just thought I'd mention that '04 isn't the same design at all, really, and isn't generally afflicted with this problem.

I'd say yes. Can't beat the price and with this mod you will have total security that it's fixed right.

With that said I think you will see what if any updates on the stripperguy stuff will come about in the next couple weeks.

If you're on the fence on getting an oil cup or stripper mod, I think it's safe to go the stripper route. There is still very low miles on the testers so I don't know if I would say for a certainty it is the end all be all fix. I think the thought is there and there is no reason for me to think otherwise, but for the skeptics, time will tell.

The issue now is parts availability. As I understand it, these are custom parts through stripper only and he only got/made a certain number. I would assume at some point he would get more, but I don't think he is interested in mass production. That's just my impression over the posts in this thread. I could be way off.

The oil cup is a reasonable solution if you don't have anything done. I certainly wouldn't wait for parts if you haven't done anything. PM stripper for parts availability. If he offers another run, get in line to be a tester.

For the record I did not get a stripper mod. Consider me a continued tester of the oil cup in case stripper decides not to produce anymore kits.

I have the oil cup mod you did for me. Currently has 4000 miles on it. Just wondering if I should be hopping on the new part band wagon. If they become more available I may get one.

Like Bob said, I don't think it will hurt.
