Jeep Information

Hey everyone. Just got a 97 grand Cherokee 4.0 for cheap, with many issues I’m in the process of fixing. Looking for any input on common issues with these things.

The other day I replaced the water pump, thermostat, idle and tensioner pulleys, and the belt, but once everything was put back together, the belt seems to sit pretty far forward on the water pump pulley. Was wondering if anyone could post up a pic of where theirs sits. Wondering if I need to somehow space it forward a 1/8 of and inch or so.

I’ve already had to disconnect the lower display as it was drawing to much current when the car was turned off. Dealing with water on the floor boards and drone from the rear next.

Hope to enjoy wrenching on this thing and have some fun if it. Thanks.
