This is probably the one you are thinking of. Don’t expect too much unless you fall into the E05 & have never had the repair done.

If it was okay I woudn't worry. The 4.0L is known to be a louder engine than most anyways being the cam is in the block. Unless its knocking I woudn't waste btu's. Just keep it running.

Well its dtarting to make a squealing sound more and more, and the lifter noise is getting worse. The thing sounds like crap and is embarrassing. Wondering if the noise is the water pump or something.

Pull the belt and check all the pulleys. My '06 had the laughing monkey, turned out to be the tensioner pulley bearing, not the OPDA.

I remember seeing a few threads on some bad lifters, don't remember the yr affected.

check your fan clutch too because when it would get cold out sometimes mine would make a crazy noise for a few seconds and go away. Once I replaced the fan clutch it hasn't come back since and these past few mornings here have been in the teen's so I think its safe to say its good.

Also too which you might already know if you pull the fan clutch don't let it sit in the down right position unless its for a minute or two because it will ruin it. If you happen to replace it with a new one its okay because the new clutch hasn't pushed the fluid around yet.

Can someone shoot me the stripper guy instructions? Mike is apparently running a little behind. I'm just grateful that someone took the time to put this together!

Received the stripperguy kit from Mike today. It's already together and ready to go in tomorrow (I took the zerk and set screw out from the first mod and am letting the JB Weld set.)

Nice Kit. Takes some patience since most of us don't have the right tools for this kind of work. Just improvise and don't score up the shaft. Working on firearms translates well to this effort, btw.

If you don't want to tackle it, I believe there is someone on this board who does the mod for you.

Anyone who needs it done can contact me and I'm happy to help out as I've done several already.

My OPDA just starting showing signs of the "laughing monkey" on a trip back to Saint Louis, Mo from Chicago, IL. I've tried to do the best research I can on this problem and I get lost in all of it. Here's my plan of attack.. Buying a whole new OPDA unit. Looking at mopar online the OPDA and seal are about $130, not bad. Is this average for most? Next, I've read about the dorman OPDA unit, the grease zirk mod, and the stripperguy kit... What do you guys suggest as the best fix??

I just did the stripper guy mod which is a permanent fix and it wasn't overly difficult. Stripperguy is very helpful during the process should you have questions. From what I've read, I believe if you purchase a new Mopar OPDA it is the original design that you currently have the problem with so you basically just "kick the can" a little further down the road. Don't have any experience with the Dorman unit other than reading from others they are not always readily available but I don't know how Dorman rectified the original design flaw. Good luck.

My LJ had its first instance of "Laughing Monkey" yesterday. I am lost in all of this as well. If I put a new OPDA with the mods in and do not replace the cam will an overly worn Cam gear have any negative effects on a new oil pump gear?

Also, very slight lifter chatter is becoming more noticeable and occasional missing at start-up after turning the Jeep off for 10-15 minutes when at running temperature. What will replacing the OPDA do, if anything, to help with this?
