    front wiper motor wire diagram -- "park"

    hey folks, i'm trying to retrofit a front wiper motor from a '99 XJ for use in a '52 ford truck (using a '72 ford truck wiper switch)... pulled a motor from the junkyard, but for some reason the wiper motor wiring diagram in my 00/01 XJ FSM doesn't actually match the motor (?). oddly, the...

    leaky axle -- D44 drum brake question(s)

    2 issues at hand: 1) last summer i did my first brake job on the D44 rear, but the shop wouldn't turn the drums, so i bought new ones along w/ the shoes, etc. however, once the drums were torqued, they would not turn -- they were machined slightly too shallow and were making contact w/ the...

    welder in jeffco?

    think i figured out where that clunking noise is coming from... upper control arm mount on D30HP w/ TNT radius longarms: ...wondering if i were to cinch it down w/ a ratchet strap if someone could run a bead for me, or is that a bad idea? if so, can it be welded as-is under the vehicle w/o...

    FYI: Carnage (LHC) impassable this weekend

    went up there this morning and some massive trees have blown down at the bottom. luckily it happened about 10 feet past the entrance to 286, so you can still get up to the top around the back way to play on mother hill and the like. i'd guess that unless someone gets a crew w/ chainsaws and...

    MOAB ... damage

    precursory overview of the jeep shows only slight carnage from moab... most notably my broken shock: somehow the stud backed its way out of the lower mount and during my JeepSpeed run :D after pritchett i think the lower part of the shock worked its way off completely and then likely got...
