  1. ZJ Grand Cherokee Forum
    Hi, Working on the old Jeep after it's been sitting for a few years. Doing a full *** rebuild, found 1-tons, etc. When I pulled my pistons I noticed #1 and #6 connecting rods we're significantly bowed. (pics below; #2 rod in the middle for reference) One or both of the motor mounts were...
  2. Jeep CJ Forum
    Hello everyone! I'm looking for advice on a good mechanic in the Atlanta area preferably (or somewhat close) who is a good choice to swap out my inline 6 on my 85' CJ-7. I've had this Jeep for 11 years now and its never been Out Of Order. It's always started and run just fine. This is a true...
  3. Jeep CJ Forum
    I’m in the the midst of a tear down of my 1982 CJ7. (Raleigh, NC area). Amazingly in the motherland of NASCAR, finding shops that can do anything is a real issue. Some of this stuff I can do my self but things like the emergency brake mechanism and the pedal assembly have parts that pressed in...

    So i replaced my valve cover gasket and cleaned my throttle body the other day andI found something possibly alarming. There is oil in the intake manifold and what feels like an lot of oil (more than i typically see in videos taking off the valve cover) under the valve cover on top of the...

    Hey folks! So my son and I acquired a CJ5 in pretty good, but raw condition, from my dad and are starting our rebuild on it. My son (14) is really starting to get into cars is "leading" this project (though let's be honest, he's 14 and struggles with motivation sometimes) and once we are done...

    2009 X 2DR 3.8 Automatic I am rebuilding the engine after 185k miles because a mechanic friend has donated his time. I'll be doing timing chain, water pump, new cam, checking valves, pushrods, lifters, gaskets, new radiator, fuel tank skid plate, new wheels/tires, wrap, etc. Yesterday we took...
  7. TJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    Been searching a lot but I haven't had any luck with removing the shifter boot or replacing the plastic nut on the bottom of the shifter rod. My AX15 has pretty crisp shifts but pops out of 1st sometimes (more often lately and mostly when under more load like starting from stop on a hill). 140k...
  8. ZJ Grand Cherokee Forum
    '97 ZJ Laredo 2WD w/206000 miles. Driver's rear is making a distinct bearing noise and I have a whine from the differential. I might as well do a rebuild while I'm opening the differential for the axle bearing and know I won't have to open it again soon. I'm just getting confused on what...

    I have had my Jeep since December of 2012. I never really knew much about maintenance or anything to do with vehicles, until I joined the Marines and met my buddies who taught me a lot (as well as a lot of youtube and google):laugh: I am currently trying to rebuild my Jeep and get him running...

    First time jeep owner in Orlando, and I'm about to embark on a big rebuild project. A little back story... My father bought a '77 CJ5 when my parents were dating (somewhere around 1979). It had been in an accident, so he pretty much striped it to the frame and rebuilt from the ground up. He...
  11. Engines & Drivetrain
    Hello everyone, first post here (I have a '93 Bronco that I have posted about on BroncoZone). My son has been playing bumper cars with my 2000 XJ. The last event involved a jumped curb that punched a 3" hole in the tire, damaged the aluminum rim and the lower swing arm mount on the right side...
  12. Engines & Drivetrain
    Need some rear diff help if possible: Ring gear in my dana 44 has lost some teeth, so now I know what's been making that horrendous noise. Bad news is I need to replace or rebuild...that is my question. Want to go as economically as possible as Jeep is advertised for sale. Bad timing to say...

  14. XJ Cherokee Technical Forum
    Solved: Easy and stupid: Distributor was off angle. Even after checking and re-checking 5 times...... sigh. Greetings! I kind of hate my first post being a "Help Me" thread, but whatever. 1998 XJ 4.0l I6. I finished a ring and rod bearing job after I was getting low compression in cylinder...
  15. Engines & Drivetrain
    Anyone ever rebuild a 4.0 out of a 94 wrangler? I've been looking at different kits from perfect engine, Clegg, and Summitt racing, but these are really all i see when i google it. Anyone have a kit that they highly recommend or highly don't recommend? I've already had the block bored and...
  16. TJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    Hey i'm brand new here, I bought a jeep TJ back in September of 2016. I love my jeep, but mechanically it isn't sound. After about 3 months of owning it the head gasket blew, and I had to replace that, then I had a over heating issue and replaced the RAD and clutch fan. Now it still overheats...
  17. General Jeep & Off-Road Equipment
    I got a Dana 44 for free and have a few questions about rebuilding it. It's from a Wagoneer (possibly '76, but could be '77 or '78). It has two issues I'm concerned about. The first is that the spring perches were taken off and there's a gouge in the axle housing that is 2.3mm deep at he...
  18. Engines & Drivetrain
    Hi all. My mechanic attempted to run a repair on my trans which didn't work out. As such he told me that if I bought a rebuild he would install it without a labor charge. I can have a Smart Parts NV3550 delivered, and core returned, for $1195 (plus $300 core fee) and $0 install. One year...
  19. TJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    A week ago my jeep decided to break a piston skirt - so I am deciding to go the route of a remanufactured engine as it will cost more to rebuild my engine, and there aren't any engines around me in junkyards. I have been looking at LKQ and S&S as they are most budget friendly to me at the...

    Just finished rebuilding an AX15 5 Speed for a build that I am doing. While I am not a transmission technician, I did find this to be a rather simple project. The following are 3 videos that outline the steps that I took to accomplish this. While this is not your How-To video, it does show...
