  1. Past hour
  2. Got your pencil ready? Since the BA10 came with an internal slave cylinder and a 95 AX15 has an external slave cylinder, you will need to swap the hydraulic system to the external set up. For the AX15, BE SURE to get the cross member and trans mounting bracket. The old BA10 will not fit the AX15. You should replace the whole clutch kit (disk and pressure plate). When I did my swap, I read up on the steps and parts needed to do it. Many of the threads "suggested" that the clutch systems will work with the internal slave BA10 and the external slave AX15. It did work, but it never felt smooth to shift. I did additional research and found that the pressure plates changed when the AX15s switched from internal to external slaves. (I used Rockauto to compare separate part numbers for a) clutch kits, b) clutch disks, and c) pressure plates across multiple years. The kits and pressure plates changed when the switch to ext. occurred. The disks stayed the same for the life of the MJ/XL line.) When you remove the two top bolts that hold the bell housing to the engine (E12), be sure to take them to a body of water and throw them as far as you can into the water. Go and get yourself some hex head bolts to replace them. As stated above, the input shaft tip of the 95 AX15 is approx. 0.75", while your BA10 has tip of approx. 0.5". Be sure to get the correct bushing/bearing. For the later model AX15s, a proper fitting pilot bushing is Timken PB77HD, search under a 73 CJ5 304 ci Good luck. I love the AX15.
  3. If I remember right, you can't use the 91 and newer headlight buckets on the 90 and older header panel. The header panel is shaped just a little differently in the turn signal area, interfering with proper fit. Or it might be the other way around, can't use the older two piece headlight buckets on the newer header panel, I can't remember which. The real problem with the older setup is the upper and lower metal trim pieces. As far as I know they are only available used, and getting harder to find in good shape in the junkyards.
  4. Also long term plan would be to use this as a daily driver as well as be able to take her out and have some fun off-road
  5. I've got both pieces of the driver side headlight bucket if you want to start piecing together a set from separate sources. Stay away from aftermarket pieces, in my experience the headlight buckets don't fit well.
  6. I wanna fully restore it of course but I can’t get the same motor that was in it so I’m using a 95 cherokee as a donor for engine trans and transfer case. And I believe it’s a 4.3L v6 but correct me if I’m wrong. The first owner put a 94 Chevy blazer vortec engine in it (very crappy job nothing on the dash works and the engines blown amyway)😂😂. But yeah I’m a young guy 21 and I’ve wanted this car since I was 16 and owned my first XJ

    Good to get back on the wagon.

    I'm back!

    Hey hobo! welcome aboard! Yeah the truck went out sometime in 2012/2013 when my foot went to the floor trying to change gears... clutch went out... well it sat up at my dads place, and owning at the time the 03 p71 I never got around to fixing it... well years went by like they do, the 03 blew a ujoint and broke the driveshaft and it got junked, replaced by an 08 p71, and yet more time passed... and then i bought my first house and the truck had to go... so it sat at my place, and i kept meaning to get around to it, but work and repairing the house, being married with small children... kept putting it off... Well... long story short, I've come a long way mechanically and its time to get it running again and not just sitting in my garage... So I got the parts to repair the BA10 (yes i know, perfect time to swap it, but that'll come later, I need the truck to get the transmission home) and have been working on it the last few days, pulling the transmission, and refreshing the engine... this summer I had replaced the fuel tank and sending unit, since it had sat up for so long the fuel could strip paint... unfortunately no one makes an MJ sender and I had to use a XJ sender... Anyway long story short, It's going to be breathing again soon, and I'll be happy to drive it again... I just wonder where all the years have gone!
  9. Today
  10. An AX-15 swap, A/C install, cooling system reconfigure/rehab and other little things that come up, will be addressed after other projects in the garage are done in turn.
  11. Hi everyone, I'm Silvertwinkiehobo, and I'm a friend of Maveric...I signed on because I'll be helping him rehab his rig, to get it back on the road. We're only concentrating right now on fixing the fuel tank and pump, the clutch hydraulic system and getting tires on it, in order to pass TX state inspection and get it licensed.

    I'm back!

    howdy! how's the truck doing?
  13. But does it have enough torque for rock climbing with an MJ?
  14. Maveric

    I'm back!

    After a several year hiatus (last i logged in was 2013 WOW!) I stumbled across my old stomping grounds! Hello everyone who may remember me with my 1988 Comanche Pioneer! It's been a long long road... If anyone remembers me, please say hello! we probably have a lot of catching up to do... Anyway I thought I'd drop back in and let you know I'm still alive! Now it's time to go catch up on what I missed for the last 6 years...
  15. If your state has emission testing and you drive on the street likely to need to pass inspection
  16. proper pilot bearing should be available from Advance Adapters about $40.00 if I remember right. If I were you get entire XJ so you have everything
  17. the link In my signature has some threads that cover the detsils.
  18. I'm sure you'll get differing opinions on this but I'm for putting it back. it does no harm and can jeep your truck from smelling like gas on a hot day. there's no need to stay with the original though, there are plenty in the junkyards designed to mount under the truck out of sight.
  19. What year was your Peugeot tranny? I have an 87 MJ 5 speed Peugeot and may be picking up a 95 XJ ax15 for it. Other than changing the pilot bearing, anything else I need to know?
  20. Yesterday
  21. The dissimilar metals between the steel and aluminum causes the aluminum to oxidize and sort of “weld” itself to the steel. Getting something to dissolve the aluminum oxide (and not trash the base aluminum or the steel parts) is going to be tough. Its for that reason I chose to drill out the corroded and siezed pivot pins.
  22. They’re just trim pieces. Problem is in 91 Chrysler switched over to a three piece set up. So you can either use the three piece of ask someone to snag those trim pieces from a junk yard Cherokee or Comanche from 84-90
  23. Looking for the tin trim that goes all the way around the grill and headlights. My truck has is all and I could get it straitened and repainted. But I'd really like to find a new chrome plated set. 1988 if it matters. Any ideas of sources? Part of my search difficulty is I don't even know the proper name to look for.
  24. just super glue some Popsicle sticks to the frame for reinforcement and call it good
  25. I am interested in finding out about this too. Mine is completely gone.
  26. I need a header for this truck? Where can I purchase one? Please advise!
