Just joined so I could PM SG. While I have not heard the typical sound associated with the OPDA problem, Mine is making a bit of a racket, more like a knock. I have a bone stock '06 TJ with just over 50k. Using a poor mans stethoscope I was able to pinpoint the noise to the OPDA. I have not pulled it out to inspect it yet. Is it better to just rebuild a new OPDA with the SG kit or to retrofit the original unit. Reason I ask is concern about the gear wear. Should I pull the existing one now and check on the cam wear before I order a new one? Should I just plan on having a new cam installed as well as a new/modded OPDA.

Start with pulling it and inspecting both OPDA and cam gears. Post pics, especially of the cam gear.

After installing a new opda a few months ago I have a sound @ around 10 to 25 mph when accelerating or decelerating. Goes away above and below those speeds.
Could it be bad again ? or something else going on ? Thoughts .

I wouldn't replace parts before confirming they are bad. My recommendation is to pull the OPDA and check the gear. If it's good, the cam should be good, also. If it's worn, check the cam, too. My stock 05 just turned 30K. I pulled the OPDA after reading this thread and found extreme wear. I then checked the cam and saw matching wear. I'm replacing the cam and putting in an SG modified OPDA.

Any interest in a video install of the stripper mod?

That would sure be helpful!

Going to pull the OPDA out this afternoon, if cam gear and OPDA gear look ok I will go ahead and make the video tonight/tomorrow if not there may be some delay as I will end up replacing my cam.

Are you sure the lettering isnt just worn off so it looks like an F?

As I understand it, the problem isn't with the gear itself, it's caused by the bushings in the 05/06 OPDA's not getting enough lubrication. That causes the shaft to bind, which causes excessive wear on the gear. When you mentioned "04 and earlier", did you mean just the gear? I think the gear is the same. The 05/06 OPDA's themselves are different and not interchangeable the 04's and earlier.

That's one interpretation. My OPDA had gear wear but no binding at 9,300 when I bought the Jeep. My contention is that many of these OPDAs had improperly alloyed/hardened gears. The poor bushing design is just icing on the cake.
