Chrysler or Dana?

Hello all!

I recently bought my first XJ - a '97 Sport, 4.0L 5-speed, 4x4. Currently not running - appears to be a bad fuel pump (at least, could be more things...)

Another issue is rusted brake lines. It appears that you need a different set of lines depending on whether you have a Chrysler or Dana rear axle. How do you know for sure which it is?

Thanks!

I appreciate the help. I'm sure I'll have more questions as this project moves ahead. I'm ready to drop the gas tank to replace the fuel pump. Once I get it running, I'll see what else is in store for me...

depending on how long it has set up, i would replace more than just the pump.
if the tank is ok on the inside, then i would replace the pump and the sending unit together. allot of work to have to replace the pump and then later have to do it all over again for the sending unit.

Yes, I'm planning on doing exactly that. I don't want to have to drop the gas tank twice.

really not that bad of a job. but it can be a pain in then but. when i tried to put the big fuel line that you use to put fuel in the tank, i sprayed the hoses down with soapy water. make then slide on easier.

If the pump mounts at the front side of the tank, there's no need to drop the tank.

my 95 is like that. i can take the sending unit out but i can never seem to get it back in. i ended up pulling the tank anyway.

just to tight of a fit and i did not feel like i had the o ring in correctly

i am getting old and cannot see as good lol

My nephew's '96 also has the pump mounted on the front of the tank, but on my '97 it sits on top.
