Run some seafoam through the brake booster line to get rid of some carbon build up.
I remember candyman posting about this awhile back. Hopefully not because of engine damage. Was driving it around right after resetting the adaptive memory, and I kid you not I was averaging 24-25 mpg city driving. I know the readout isn't pinpoint, but its close. Freaked me out a little bit. Kept driving and the numbers came back down to earth eventually.. Who'd a thought good mileage would give me a bad feeling..

New Heavy duty fan clutch is LOUD.

Engine has a bit of a roar now instead of a growl.

...I kinda like it.

I forgot, do you already have an oil catch can? You will still get blowby through the intake via the pvc.

Water Pump

All I wanted to do was swap the winter tires on my wife's 95 ZJ and it turned into a water pump, pulleys, thermostat and serp belt. Should be ready for nice weather though...hopefully.

Probably just taking off the front, so I'll still have my tweeters and rear door speakers. Not worried about the mirrors.

Mostly like, any complaints about comfort and simplicity opening and closing the doors and side electrical issues after disconnecting the electrical connectors and re connecting them.
Roll rear windows down.

Few days ago, pulled the big radio and the antenna tuner out of the rear window. They've been mounted there for almost as long as we've owned the jeep, and after two decades the plastic was cracked and things were rattling something fierce.

Last night, finally separated the niner engine and trans and got the engine on the stand. Mainly so I could clean the garage, but it's progress.

Oh boy... what happened with the sea foam? I put about half a can in mine the other day. Always pleased with the results.

Nothing happened, it's fine. Directions say to split even in fuel tank, crank case, and intake though.
I've put entire cans through intakes with good results though.

Really want to get some rustoleum red liner and pray my bumpers.... But I think it would be to dark a color and clash really bad with the red of my jeep
