    high-steer plans

    I bought the Teraflex high-steer knuckle for my front D44 (I do not want WJ knuckles--nothing wrong with that, but I am going a different place). I am trying to layout the steering links. Right now the upper arm runs smack into the swaybar link hardware that I put in for OTK tie rod. So those...

    any tips for timing chain

    I'm planning to replace the timing chain on my pos in a couple of weeks and looking for tips. The last time I did this (years ago) the motor was on a stand, this time doing it while the motor is still installed. Do I need to pull the radiator? Anything special about the gap between the timing...

    FB activity

    Thinking about switching the (unofficial) FB group to private. Downside to being a public group is everybody sees what you post (notified in some cases), which limits participation a bit. The group was created as public so that events could be shared, but if the events are created on the...

    ABS code 30

    I picked up another XJ recently, plan to use it for backup DD / winter driver. I am trying to get some stuff fixed so I can take it through MD inspection. The big thing is the ABS light is always on. I borrowed a friend's Snap-On MT2500 with a universal cartridge (he's a Ford master tech) and...

    upgrade prioritization

    Gotta save some pennies for my next $$ upgrade and I can't quite decide between these three so I will ask the NAXJA family Long arm upgrade -- I'm on 6" of lift with short arms. Doesn't bother me except downtravel is limited by the rotational arc. I get a tire off the ground all the time and my...

    hvac seal kit interchange?

    My 91 parts catalog shows the heater core / evap core foam seal as part number 56006312. I can't find this anywhere. The 01 parts catalog shows a multi-part seal "kit" part number 4874069AB which seems to be in production and available. Are they interchangeable?

    standalone TPS harness?

    Bought an AW4 from a guy today, had this tangled in with the other harnesses. Its a TPS connector on one end, for sure. Never seen one standalone before--always seen the TPS wire bundled in with the other sensors and gizmos. What is it used for?

    oil and temp gauges read high

    1991 XJ ... Oil pressure and coolant temperature gauges have both been high for a while. I replaced the senders first, gauges didn't change. I verified the oil pressure sender was accurate--the FSM says ~1 ohm per PSI, the sender shows ~20 ohms at idle (about ~20 PSI), but the gauge shows 60...
