So so close. It was challenging getting everything back to where it needs to go when it was just in a pile in my garage for months with no labels haha. Too bad the valve covers are so hidden with everything in, theyíre so pretty.

Next is driveshafts, just put fresh u-joints on the rear shaft. Flushed the trans cooler system real good, got rid of the inline filter because my trans shop talked me out of it (44RE already has a filter that works well). Just need to add fluids after that, then onto the headliner. The local junkyard crushed the ZJ with the sunroof i was going to snag the controller/relay harness out of so that sucks. Was hoping to get that sorted before installing the liner.

Anyone have any tips for fluid level to start in the trans? I put a couple quarts in the torque converter 2 nights ago when I installed the trans but I was thinking add 4 or so quarts before first start?

kg6mov Finished installing the M1 today.

Then I installed the tune.

Now I need to get through this tank of gas and get some 91 so I can switch to the higher octane tune.

My crank sensor grommet got mangled the last time I pulled and re-intalled the engine. Tried to find one on-line but no luck. I need to learn to master google-fu

5 AM and just now going to bed. Only reason I stopped is because I ran out of silicone haha

Got the rebuilt trans in, all the wires routed. Torque converter and starter in. Fixed some broken plugs, linkage is all in. Transfer case is on, found a brand new input seal in my spare parts box so I threw that in there too. New crank position sensor, new cap, rotor, and coil.

It was either throw in the exhaust and crawl around on my back more or do the plenum gasket and get the manifold on. Got the plate on and realized my ultra black in the big caulking gun is all dried up [emoji2959].

System has ambient pressure when brake pedal is up, so keeping the reservoir lid closed you shouldn't really loose more than a few drops. Clean off what came out with brake cleaner and a rag.

Best way is to be quick, you won't really loose that much fluid.
Some use a clamp on the rubber hose to squeeze it, but I suggest not doing so if you still have rubber hoses. It can damage the hose.

Timmyh13 I had a recurring transmission oil pan leak. So I decided to change the fluid, filter and gasket and put my mopar gasket back on as the last shop to deal with my transmission put a "shudder" Felpro gasket on for some reason. As I was loosening up the oil pan bolts I noticed one of the bolts was putting up some major resistance. Turns out the bolt was a bit longer and the wrong threads. So I go to the local well stocked hardware store to get the proper bolt and tap to clean up the threads. Simple right??? I get back and oil up the tap and carefully get it started, things are going well I'm thinking I finally got the oil leak fixed right up until the tap decides breaks off in the transmission housing!!! I'm stunned as this was the first time this happened to me even though I have a lot of experience with taps. This is already to long, so I'll explain the unusual fix I used in the next day or so if anyone is really interested. 96 ZJ 5.2l AWD runs incredibly well

LittleFootZJ Just downloaded the FSM from JeepsLimited. Leaps and bounds better than the Hayne's. Thanks for the tip on the website!

LittleFootZJ Ahhh good to know. I will definitely do that. But for now I need to figure out where I put the bellhousing bolts [emoji1787]
