You can get them cheaper from dodge-wholesale.com

And even cheaper than that price if you call and talk to Mike V. in parts, ask for the Jeep Club discount. Thanks to flying bosun for the hook up.

Looks rather similar to my original unit. Any shots of the cam gear, perhaps?

No. Couldnt get pics of cam. From studying what i seen, I think it may be possible the oil pump is some of the cause of the problem. The end of the shaft that turns the oil pump had a wear mark like the oil pump is dragging and causing strain on the end of the shaft and causing drag on shaft which is causing wear on the gear.

That's a very interesting theory! I too noticed a bit of wear on the drive side of the shaft where it fits into the pump slot. Might be considered normal wear IDK, but it is evident.

My new OPDA arrived today, so will install it, and if I still get the ticking, will most likely drop the pan.

The wear on the oil pump shaft is normal and every distributor or opda you pull out of any 4.0 I6 from YJs up through your year will show it- unless you're running an HV pump, the pump is not the cause of your issues.

Is there a video of a new OPDA install showing the turning of the crank to tdc etc buried somewhere in this or any other thread that someone can direct me to? I am that kind of amatuer that prefers a visual when doing something the first time. Thanks.

Described here mostly on post 5 & photos further down.

You don’t have to pull the #1 plug as described there. When you line the small hole in the wheel with the hole in the bottom of the housing you will be on TDC #1.

There is some video on the long first page of the main OPDA thread & it is worth reading that page. It doesn’t show the TDC method but relies on marking the wheel. Either way will work.

1% of me says dump it for a newer Jeep.

99% of me loves my TJ too much to toss her away.

Driving it until warranty is up and i'll toss in a 4bt or V8.

I could never drive the Super Plastic JKs

So, I have been dealing with this terrible squealing for the past two days and found out where it is coming from. The same as everyone else. I can't seem to get the cover off to check the gears for wear, but I assume that's the issue. Should I park it until I can get it to the dealership? I'll have to check on the build date to see if its part of the TSB...

Great!
The dealership told Jeep/Chrysler that your OPDA was not the problem or the Jeep dealership told you that it wasn't the problem? It's easy to self-diagnose and if it is bad, then you might try a different dealership. Y'all have read the first 10-12 as well as the more recent posts in the willydigger thread, right? http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f9/20...ilure-1144202/

Yes, stop running it (it'll eat your cam) and the build date and tsb are irrelevant.
