No worries at all, Uniblurb! Thanks for the useful info! I completely agree with you. With the Mopar hoses being clearly superior, I would've absolutely gone to the trouble and expense to get those...

I really don't know. I figured they were all about the same - Dayco, Gates, Continental, Delco, Omix-Ada, etc. Maybe that was bad figuring on my part. Since I bought it through Amazon Warehouse,...

Ruptured Radiator Hose!

At less than 3 years old, I would expect a 4.7L lower radiator hose not to fail in such spectacular fashion. Across all the decades of driving and vehicles I've owned, I've NEVER had a radiator hose...

When I had this problem and was also having leaking problems of an unknown origin anyway, I considered it the final straw and so I removed the headliner and the entire wire harness with the offending...

Hey, no problem. I appreciate reading about other people's rebuild stories. I didn't have my block re-decked either. On the head bolt torque, after trying and apparently failing with torque plus...

Yeah. That really looks awesome. I might have done more cosmetic stuff if I had been convinced I wasn't wasting my time and money trying to bring the Jeep back to life. It was the first engine I ever...

I can only imagine. I bought it only based on pictures from an insurance auction. There was a pic of under the hood but it was back some distance and low resolution. I figured there was probably just...

That rebuild looks great! Good paint and detail work. Mine was dead when I bought it and it looked gruesome. Check out those lovely valve covers and modern art masterpiece pistons...

According to www.wjjeeps.com and also the factory parts manuals, there are differences with the last generation of front bumper fascias but so far I haven't found any evidence to suggest...

Unless it's an exceptionally well-maintained, low mileage example (even then age issues are unavoidable), hopefully you won't be selling a 15+ year old Jeep to someone who is not a DIY person. I...

Unfortunately, the cutaway view below is not a 242HD specifically. The diagrams are from the factory parts manual.

It's been five years since I tore one down. With my memory, it may as well have been a lifetime. There are other snap rings in there. Until someone else speaks up, maybe these pics will help you.

I think if I had to do valve stem seals I might just punt and yank the whole engine out. I had a good valve spring compressor (the giant C clamp kind) and the heads on a bench and *still* had enough...

I haven't watched the video so I can only guess what you're talking about. A loose rear output shaft could be a broken retainer/snap ring. With the tailshaft housing removed you should be able to...

I really don't have an opinion on oil consumption! Since both of my 4.7s leak a little here and there I've never thought it worthwhile to try and figure out how much they're actually burning (if at...

Great write-up. A lot of people are convinced the 4.7 has a real design or defect problem with dropping valve seats. From what I understand, Chrysler/Mopar's official stance on the matter has never...

Hah - yeah me too. It had that hail damage when I bought it! I didn't think to look up there either or I might have been able to talk the dealer down some. Come to think of it, they never disclosed...
