Changed my front and rear pinion seals(with new nuts) using this write up
http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f9/pi...-30-a-1031177/

Also welded a washer in place of my missing driveshaft weight, then left a hose clamp loose enough so it would vibrate to the off balance side, them tightened it up. Go ahead and laugh, its in my 88-89 Ford tech manual(the one the techs use, not haynes/chiltons). Its not permanent, just to keep me from eating up new seals. The sye is going in Friday. Pic is before seals, wanted to make sure i could somewhat balance the shaft first. Actually worked surprisingly good.

Seems pretty smart. My fuel/brake lines are tied to the frame with rope at the crossmember, because they were in the way when we welded the crossmember in. Been like that for ages. Now that my friend is ghetto.

I was actually surprised the hoseclamp would work itself into place when left somewhat loose. It was cool driving, because you could actually feel it balancing out. When I started, the head was by the washer. I was worried it didnt have enough weight with just the washer. So a big hoseclamp will be a good trail fix for a missing weight.

And I have paracord holding my radiator from hitting the fan. Still gotta find a place that can redo the plug weld for the mounting bracket at the top. Doesn't leak, just the top weld that holds the bracket on at the top broke. At least my radiator is all metal

Man I don't have a problem breaking stuff on the trail, but this motor failure is really putting me off. I'm sure I'll come back around when its running again, but damn.

Pull that motor and get busy! You have had your share of breaking stuff, but you always jump right back on and carry on, don't treat this any different than now you get to learn more about your jeep, at least it is a pretty simple motor. It does suck, but you will recover, it doesn't do you any good being broken. Sent from my iPad using JeepForum

What I did to my TJ

Sold it and purchased a JK...

I've never been so sad, yet so happy at the same time.

Shame to you and for four generations after you....


Kidding of course... Sort of.
