I have a little 4.7 build going on for my 1985 CJ-7. Its going to get a SOA YJ leaf spring conversion with a Dana 44/Ford 9Ē, so it is going to be similar to your Wrangler.



Iím looking forward to getting this engine up and running. It should double the power output of my stock 258, while retaining the Jeep inline six design.


Nice. Iíve got a 4.6 bottom end built, but didnít tear into this 4.0 since I pulled it from a running vehicle and I want to drive scrambles quicker AND Iíll probably need an axle upgrade with the bigger engine.

Let's see;

1. Replaced front leaf springs
2. Replaced bushings and greased old shackle
3. Nearly ripped off my thumb/nail being too brave/dumb with an angle grinder trying to detail clean a small piece.

Today:
1. Replace rear shackles.
2. Don't injure myself. (knock on wood)

The ole death wheel. Always an adventure when you use it. Need to take that guard off so that it is even more dangerous when you use it lol.

Replaced lower radiator hose.

Had a leak which looked like it was coming from the lower hose at the engine end. After examination, no obvious damage was visible on the old hose. Replaced it anyway since new one was already purchased.

Did a stupid thing and accidentally poured used radiator fluid into the system which my son removed from his firebird and poured back into the original bottles. Looked new to me since it was nice and clean looking only to discover some sludge at the bottom as I poured. Luckily I stopped before it reached the radiator.

Are the YJ risers lower? I pulled off a driver seat slider and didn't want to install it because it would raise the passenger up even further. Are you happy with them and could you kick me the parts if ordered? Thank you and nicely done!

The YJ raiser is 1" lower than then the CJ to account for the slider. So when you install the riser, slider and move the slider back a few inches, you have room in a CJ passenger side.

Sorry, junk yard pick up, no part numbers.

Junk yard score, eh? Was it an 87-95 YJ? That could get me a little closer if you know and I appreciate the help. My wife is on the taller side and this will be a huge score for the date nights.


EDIT: Or if there is any frame style of the riser that can differentiate the 2. Sucks having a lot out there where people are 'fits 78-05' and stuff like that. Thank you!

I installed my new ac hose but routing it left no place for my solenoid so I would have to drill holes in my pretty paint to relocate that as well as drill a hole for a cushion clamp to keep the hose from rubbing on the paint . I'm open to suggestions.

Mocked up Warn special equipment directional lights on winch plate. Also got the header all snugged and torqued.

Cj Speedo Lights

Finally got around to replacing the speedo bulb connectors that were old, brittle and broken. Thanks to "DougE" for sending me some original ones and a set of modern ones a while back. The newer ones I plan to use if these fail again but for now I just kept them OEM. I used small LED bulbs because the larger incandescent ones that were previous in there seemed to have been too difficult to keep within the attachment hole because of their length. So, I'll see how these LED's look and if need be, I will once again swap them out if they are not bright enough. At least all the bulb connectors are finally good to go! Thanks "DougE".
