    Transmission cooler in front of radiator?

    Recently upgraded my radiator fans and the engine temp doesn't seem to flinch anymore for the most part. On one beatdown the trans actually got hotter than the coolant. That's a first for me. I've got a derale stacked plate trans cooler but now I'm wondering if maybe I should just mount a cooler...

    30'+ Gooseneck Trailer

    Just seeing what's out there for open deck trailers. Need 30' but would go as big as 40'. Also prefer tandem duals. I'm in PA but would be willing to drive for a deal. So if y'all have one or know of any, let me know! Thanks

    Sway bar tabs bending?

    Just trying to figure out what I'm missing here. Recently purchased and installed a TK1 sway bar for my buggy. They have a real nice write-up on their site laying out all of the optimal positions for the whole thing. Such as end links at least as long as the shock travel, end link to axle...

    5.3 No throttle

    Just finished my gen 3 5.3 swap in my yj using a PSI conversions harness. This engine is dbw. Starts and runs fine but after a couple of blips of the throttle, I lose all throttle response and the pedal is essentially dead. Throws a U0107 code which from my research is indicating a possible...

    GM pump to YJ steering box.

    Does anyone know of anywhere that carries conversion lines to connect a truck (5.3L) steering pump to a YJ steering box? Or at least what size/type fittings are on both ends? At least then I could get a set made.

    Gasket or RTV?

    Got my trans from PTC and the pan leaked right away. Found a hunk of oily dirt between the trans and gasket, no big deal, shit happens. I didn't have a gasket on hand so laid down a bead of rtv. Reassembled and still leaked at the pan. Pulled it again and went with a moroso gasket since I had...

    Trans Cooler Question

    Currently have a Derale 2 row cooler with fan on my th400. Seemed to do fine when the trans was stock but when I upgraded, ptc spec'd out a 3k converter which likes to build up quite a bit of heat when trying to crawl stuff. I have a 2nd trans cooler that is basically the same thing but only...

    Now a question for the th400 guys...

    So let's get this out of the way first, I'm an idiot. :shit: Was trying to find the source of a small trans leak (ptc th400 fmrv) and thought it might have been the plug where the vacuum modulator used to be. So I removed the retainer, wiped it down and waited to see if it leaked. In the...

    Anyone ever rebuilt a psc double ended ram?

    One of my seals is leaking pretty badly. I've got what looks to be a rebuild kit for the entire ram but I'm short on time so was just going to do the one outside seal for now. Is it just as simple as removing the clevis and unscrewing the cap at the end? If so, I think I could probably do it...

    Stolen YJ

    I know it's not close to most of you but I wouldn't think a car thief would keep something local. I sold my 94 yj to a fella about 2 months ago and it was just stolen from in front of his house last night in North Philadelphia. License plate (not that it really matters I'm sure) is Pennsylvania...

    Sandblasting Cost

    I've never had anything blasted before so I have no idea what a reasonable price is to pay. For any of yous that have had a full tube chassis blasted, what did it run ya? I'm not getting powder at the same time if that makes a difference but I'm waiting on a couple of quotes and am trying to see...

    Th400 Stickout Question

    Planning on ordering a new trans soon (hopefully today) but I wasn't smart enough to write down what my output shaft stickout was. What I do know is I've got the standard th400 to atlas adapter plus a 1" spacer right now. My research tells me I probably have the ~2.5" output stickout. Does this...

    Jeep 4.0 running like poo

    I know some of y'all are/were jeep guys. I've got a 94' yj 4.0 that is running like it's missing across all rpms. Starts fine and idles fine (except for the miss). The jeep sat for quite some time but I made sure to start it every month or so. Back in August I went to move it to a friend's house...

    Front mounted coolant overflow?

    Anyone ever mounted one up front on a rig with a rear mounted radiator? Idling level or facing downhill mine does fine. However, facing uphill at idle, the temps climb. Raising the rpm's brings the temp back down but I'm not 100% sure yet if that trend will stay of if it will eventually stop...

    LS knock sensor wiring

    So I was doing a real good job about not botching anything when I pulled my engine yesterday. That is, until I snagged the knock sensor plug on the harness. Pulled the connector right off. It's 2 blue wires, both look identical. Does anyone here know if it makes a difference which side of the...

    Question for you concreters

    I'm getting ready to pour an extention for the back patio. The new pour will be 20x13. I've never ordered stone before so I'm wondering how much I'll need at 4" thick and what size? I came up with 4.44 tons but for some reason that seems high. Also, is stone typically gotten by the ton or yards...

    Fuel Pumps That Suck

    Finally started really tearing into the wifes yj. It originally had the carbed 4.2 so there's no in-tank pump, just a pick-up in the middle of the tank. I grabbed the same Walbro inline pump that everyone uses for an ls swap. Do you guys think it will live if it has to draw fuel up out of the...

    Student Loan Forgiveness Calls

    I am getting so sick of these bastards calling. I've never had a student loan or anything like that. They've really amped up their call rate, as much as 4 or 5 times a day. They use local area codes and if I block the number, they just call from another. I've double checked and I am indeed on...

    Th350 Rebuild help

    I finally got around to rebuilding the th350 for the wifes jeep. I never built a trans before or ever even had one apart. With the help of a kit from jakes and a couple of youtube videos, I've nearly made it to the end. The only problem I see is I have 1 ring/spacer leftover. I know enough to...
