    havent forgot, been crazy busy.
  5. I am looking at replacing my door windows in my 88MJ with a window from a 99 cherokee. don't want to change the door it self but change the window. Get rid of the wing window that does not open. My door is good as well as the hinges (so far). Is this a doable change? I did not see anythng about this or did I just miss it?

    An 88 from Montesano

    I have been working on this girl. I also replaced the speedometer cable and the e-brake cable. painted the roof, fixed the headliner, She now has Bucket seats, a newer ecu from a 89 cherokee, a 1 1/2" space in the front and put on 31" tires and wheels that are offset. a bit of a change. not as much as I am going to do. The next item is change out the front axle, and get things ready to remove the engine and tranny and be ready to install the rebuilt engine and tranny/transfer case.

    what did you do to your MJ today?

    Well I took it out for a ride and it did seem to have a bit more git in its go. but then at the same time. I changed the seats so it just might be the addition of both changes to make it "FEEL" better LOL.

    I'm sorry I didn't take pics of the before. The rust wasn't near as bad as I expected. 2 small pin holes maybe eighth inch in diameter. One at the top, one at the bottom. Filled with short hair bondo hair and topped that with a thin layer of bondo all the way around to fill in the spot welds. Also ground down the nipples poking out at the top. These are all the way around and I'm presuming they are for chrome trim. With the rubber seal all the way around the glass I'm not sure how one would fasten trim with the seal in the way. I intend to use 3M window weld without the seal. Will this work? My thoughts are "I wonder if this unibody twists so much that's why windshield leaks are so prevalent?" Anyway, 3 coats of primer, then paint. Using gray around this area to make it easier to see how the sealant goes down and then squishes as the glass is installed. Every now and again there is a rhyme to my reason...LoL Sent from my LG-M210 using Tapatalk

    bad starter over night...

    So, it's working now?
  11. They're not 12 point, they're regular metric allen/internal hex. If I said they were 12 point in the video then it was a mistake. Lots of guys unbolt them from the top I believe, so the motor mount actually comes off the K-member. That looked harder at the time, as there was some heatshields for the mounts that would be in the way, a guy could just bend them though. The flywheel bolts are 12 point (and stress relieved), I think that was the only real 12 point stuff I ran into. There's a bunch of other metric allen stuff in various sizes I ran into. The whole car has a lot of high end hardware on it though, so it's a bit odd to people that aren't used to it.

    Debt Collection Advice

    In CA, anything involving money under 5K is usually handled in small claims court. A $15 filing fee and no lawyers (legal advice OK, but no lawyers in court) you have to plead your own case. Quite often they'll put you into "mediation" where you go into another room with a court mediator to work out the details...and if it's all agreed on...that's the agreement that the court uses. I realize you're not in CA. However, you need to have had some kind of contract, written OR spoken. The beef is with a former owner so the current owner isn't liable. You just need a dis-interested person to serve papers. Not a sheriff or professional process server...could just be a friend or acquaintance. If the judge ( or mediator) believes you you get the judgement. But the judgement is just that. There's really no enforcement of the judgement. I rented a house to a guy that worked in the local lumberyard, nice guy, hard worker, came with references from a guy I knew. Turned out that the guy was a part time tweaker. Then became a full time meth head, got his kids taken away from him and his wife, beat his wife up and ruined my house. Two days after I got a "judgement' from the court, he split town and went to Reno, where he was promptly arrested and spent eight years in prison. Ha Ha, I never got a dime from the guy.

    I still have no feeling in my feet from pulling all day in the cold. I hit jackpot and didn't stop to put my boots on. I honestly think my heals have frostbite but I can't feel it so I'm good.

    It's rich at all times. It has a coolant temp sensor and a intake temp sensor. They both read perfect whenever I check them. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Did 96 have air temperature readings? That or coolant temp are my half assed guess at why it’s rich at start up Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    IAC only adds air and they're kind of impossible to test. Musni don't know if they would run rich because of it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Could IAC do any of this? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    Are the temperature readings accurate or seem accurate? If we maybe believe the hardware is not faulty maybe the software is getting something erroneous like temperature and mixing the fuel wrong. Maybe the pcm is failing somewhere. I doubt a worn engine would cause running rich unless it wasn’t firing and if compression were that low it ought to throw a code. Beside I doubt that motor is all that bad off unless it was severely abused. In old HO xjs/MJs I’d suspect O2 sensor, and map. Older cars Mass air flow sensor. On the OBD2 xj I’m not sure.

    The running rich was an issue before I replaced them and they're remaned ones from K Suspension. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Going back to basics, how do we know the injectors are good? Ive seen them fail rarely and not bad enough to trigger codes on newer cars. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    I see some good stuff in there! I'm hoping to find a day this week to hit the local pull a parts. we'll see. I also promised to caulk the exterior of a house and the good weather days might be limited.
