BG MOA is nothing but ZDDP (zinc and phosphorus) in a light oil carrier. IF you want to use it or a product similar to it there is no problem with that. But IMHO its a waste of money. Just run a good diesel oil with 1300PPM+ of ZDDP and a robust additive package.

Just remember too much of a good thing isn't always good. Don't go nuts and buy 4-5 bottles of ZDDP additive and dump them in. Running more than 1600PPM of ZDDP causes the oil PH to drop which leads to allot of nasty problems.

I pulled the distributor in my '92 at 220K and it had very little wear, but it was cheaper to buy a reman distributor than to just replace the cam sensor in it.
Make sure to get a new gasket before you pull your CPS...chances are the old one will come apart when you take the CPS out - mine did. Unfortunately it's not an o-ring like most distributors on older cars, it's a fiber gasket.

I stopped by my dealer today with my pictures in hand and showed them to the service guys. One of the guys was familiar with the issue and said that if it was going to be a problem it would have within the first 1000 or so miles on the vehicle. They suggested I bring it up when I bring the vehicle in for another warranty issue so that the $100 deductible would be for both? Is a powertrain warranty issue supposed to have a deductible? I'm probably going to just keep an eye of mine and pull it again in another 2000 miles to compare the wear with the previous wear.

I tore apart my old OPDA and the upper bushing and shaft had all the wear, the bottom 3/4 looked great. from my understanding that portion of the OPDA is factory packed with grease and the oil doesn't travel that high. you can see a lead filled plug on the side of the housing, this was used for adding grease. I believe this has been documented over at ROF.

I didn't really look at them.

Thank you for your order. The part is on backorder with no current promise time. I have updated the order with a best guess estimate, but it could be longer. We will need your approval on the new eta of 09/09 to process the order. Just go to your order status and login. Then click on your order number, review it, and approve or cancel.
As long as they don't charge the credit card until it ships I'll keep the order open & see how it goes. In the meantime, I'm planning to inspect mine and maybe swap out the gear as explained in recent posts.

1/2 inch vs 13mm hold down bolt

My 05 has a 1/2 inch hold down bolt vs a 13mm as listed in the original post. Makes me wonder if the earlier ones used a different part? My build date for both engine and vehicle was early in October of 2004 slightly before the official TSB started. I also read on ROF about someone else that had the 1/2 inch bolt vs the 13mm.

Dealers are required to have any recalls done on vehicles for sale or brought in for service. Nowadays with folks using auto sites to gather info on problems before going shopping dealers don't want to have any recalls sitting on their lot.

When they got the TSB on this they were expecting a recall, so some dealers went ahead and performed it with the parts they already had in stock inventory.The bad ones taken out were saved to be returned when the recall came. Obviously it never did and the dealers had to go back and redo paperwork for reimbursement to them. My neighbor is a Jeep service manager and this was what happened to mine.
Evidently this occurs from time to time.

The good news is you got a " old " new part so it should be fine.

I pulled mine out today the gear was worn like the ones in the pics of some of the other members on here. 2006 only 50,000 miles. I can't really tell about the cam but I am not going to replace it anyway. This stinks, I just wonder what all those metal shavings have done to my motor. This is my 4th jeep and everyone of them have been buggy I am threw with jeeps unless its well used with a different motor and gears. I think next time I am just going to get a Toyota Tacoma. Maybe I will just stick the old CPS back in and trade it.
