I went as far as adding a small lock washer , so the screw couldn't back out without 'help' .
Once I did that^ , no more leaks .
Yeah thats what I use for all fuel lines, I have a nice assortment pack of those.

You laugh , Ralph .
But , there is a real difference between the two airs . Winter air is much dryer than Summer air . Winter air also has a higher oxygen count than Summer air , per cubic foot .
Of course , any difference is totally dependent on location .
That difference is much more noticeable in the states along the northern border as opposed to those along the southern border .

Anyway , back to our regularly scheduled program .

I bought the Compustar CS-800S. It was $50 on amazon and another 8-9 bucks for t taps and quick connects. Works awesome. Saved my self $200 bucks.

There is an excellent video on YouTube of a guy showing you every wire you need to connect. You literally could not mess it up.

My Cherokee is my DD and since it’s 20 years old, I wanted to be able to warm up the engine before I started to drive.
Thanks. Just added it to my Amazon cart. I do not have a factory alarm so hopefully I can figure it out. All I really want/need is the keyless entry and remote start.

Put mine on the shelf for winter... I just ran out of time and money this year. Got started on the “build” in late July and could never get caught up. By the time I got it back from my mechanic/fabricator it was too late to get finished. Still needs exhaust, full interior, transfer case repair or replacement, u-joints, alignment, new rear shocks, battery, battery cables, wire accessories, rear cut n fold, etc. it was nice to get it back on the road again. Hopefully it’s a mild winter and I can keep working on it.

FYI, the transfer case in the Police Package XJ is different than the non Police Package XJ.

I'm still not 100% certain if this is the only difference. Round Pin vs. Rocker Joint

I believe it has a different chain too.
I am going to guess bigger.
The part numbers for the chain in my '97 to '99 XJ parts catalog lists 2 different part numbers for the chain depending on which TC.
Thing with having or upgrading to one of those is I have to wonder about part availability.

1 TRANSFER CASE, NP242
5209 8899 1 J, U ER0 DG0 w/o Export Package (ABE), w/o
Police Package (AHB)
5211 1083 1 J, U ER0 DG0 w/ Export Package (ABE), w/
Police Package (AHB).

41 CHAIN, Transfer Case
4638 890 1 J, U ER0 DG0 52111083
8350 4575 1 J, U ER0 DG0 52098999

And while I would like to do this as part of my "clone" build, assuming I could find one, I won't just cause I wonder about getting parts for it.

Ok this comes up on Novak Adapt and the "rocker joint" pin design is available though them. I guess you could always swap in the sprockets and chain from a "regular" NP242.

Did not know that, however this isn’t a police package although it was used as a police car. This is an SE with an NP231.

So once again I could not stop myself.
$38 and whatever a 30 mile round trip cost me in gas. Found them on Craigslist.
Brand new. Funny thing is that Googling the part number nothing comes up.
And they are 5 ton. Which I find odd. Thinking jack stands come in 2, 3, 6, etc ton.
My boss at the store had an idea. May be part of a kit.
Maybe a homeowner thing sold through someplace like Home Depot.
I think I read that Lincoln Welders sold through Home Depot are not quite
the same as one you could get from somewhere that is not a big box store.
Similar thing maybe.
Hey they still say Made In USA. LOL.
