So, if the torque converter seal leak is not excessive, then repairing the shift lever seal leak may be performed w/ normal effort level.


TC leak is pretty excessive. Leaked about 1 quart overnight [emoji31]

Basically Iíll be able to drive it two miles to work to evacuate the AC I just charged and drive it back home to sit until I rip her apart again haha

PolkaPower You don't need light bars if you build some HID retrofits.

KiloWatts Swapped out my PCM yesterday. Still waiting on some free time so I can replace all steering linkage parts. That, and ball joints are all that's left in terms of suspension.

LittleFootZJ Makes the headlights look like street lamps haha

Well I went to go to work this morning and walked into the garage and smelled trans fluid...looked under the Jeep and saw a giant red pool of death. Took the civic to work [emoji36]

Just got done diagnosing the leaks. The trans cooler lines and pan that I just did arenít leaking like I hoped. There are two major leaks.

Number one:





Number two:





So thatís great. Now I have to pull the trans....and since the trans is gonna be out it doesnít make sense to me to not swap to a 242 and rebuild the motor.

Problem is Iím in the middle of building my other car and Iím not rich...so the Jeep is back onto the back burner....I miss camping [emoji31]

Rallyrs Greetings!

Newb here.

Just regged.

Just picked up a 5.2 ZJ with Quadratrac and LSD in rear D44A.

First thing I did today is the most important mod.

Remove the previous ownerís stupid Oakland Raiders sticker on the back!

The NFL(and the NBA too) can go pound sand.

End(my first) rant.

Next are headed over to have the oil changed(synthetic)and all fluids checked and or topped off.

Then off to the smog test, which thankfully it passed with flying colors! Yay!

firebane Coolant temp sensor day.


Was noticing my temp gauge being all herky jerky.. Confirmed with a tool my temp was never getting over 185 and at times stuck around 180.



Was thinking to do thermostat again, but $30 later (stupid Canada parts) and she's good again.

IMMORTEN I use my air compressor an a more regular basis for cleaning dust, dirt and some times even pet hair out of customers and my own machines.

And as air tools are fairly cheap and widely available here in Denmark, I can justify buying air tools more.

Plus air tools are all mechanical, so (in theory at least) they would handle not being used over an extended period of time more than a battery powered tool.

We used IR air guns at my work when lashing/ unlashing trailers and other stuff from ro-ro ships in ALL possible weather conditions you can ever think of - from 80įF or more down to below -20įF from pouring rain, 5" of slush or 10" of snow on the open decks - and trailer securing chains are always tightened to the max. until the socket no longer spins - that's about 600Nm or more.
We switched to electric impacts about 8 years ago, and after testing multiple different manufacturers', Milwaukee tools have been the best, strongest and most effective by far of all the quality manufacturers we tried. Same conditions, and they just keep on working.


I have no doubt that Milwaukee Fuel series are excellent, but they are quite costly too.

I only find myself working on my Jeep maybe once or twice a month on average, so I have difficulty justifying the cost of one.

Thereís also no one really selling Milwaukee tools here in Denmark, apart from a few online sellers, but they ďjust sell the toolsĒ with no after sales support at all

Finally have AC after almost 10 years. Missed summer by just a little bit though haha but itís blowing a brisk 40 Degrees Fahrenheit so Iím happy.

Every part except the heater core are from Amazon and they fit like crap. The hard lines were all bent wrong and I had to tweak them to fit. The condenser tabs had to be bent a little to fit right. Even added foam between the condenser and radiator like factory and refoamed all the things in the HVAC box.

Still smells a bit like fire though, drove all through the smoke and ash from the Woolsey Fire last year and damn itís hard to get that smell out.

Now onto figuring out why I still have death wobble even after replacing all the steering links, steering box, pitman arm, and upper control arm bushings. Ball joints next I guess. [emoji389]
