Comanche Addict

Comanche Addict (5/10)

  1. Thanks for the offer, but from what I have seen they have different attaching forms and are shaped different. I found one on eBay and got it coming!
  2. for 87 2.5. Mine broke! will search local wrecking yards but anyone have a serviceable one?
  3. Just loosing contact inside the socket. JB weld reestablished contact and would not let groundwire ever move again!
  4. CONSTANTLY had this happen! Wouldn't blink! Was always the ground wire in the plastic socket/housing! So, one day I got some JB Weld, mixed it up, put it in the hole where the ground wire fits in the socket and guess what! Working always now! YES!!!!
  5. That would be a help if only intake and wiring appropriate to it. But, with 352,000 and one complete rebuild and then a need to sleeve one cyl, I may want to go with a complete swap. But, why a new instrument cluster? Mine is now gauges, not lights, and has a tach. Don't remember year I got it from.
  6. ... so will any 91 and following 2.5 and all the wiring etc from any jeep work in my 87 comanche 4x2 manual tranny, or should it be only another comanche or a cherokee? :???:
  7. Definitely coat crank and rods also. I coated all engine block parts, including heads, that were not going to be replaced and bagged/boxed all of them.
  8. All the advice given is very good and from "experienced" drivers. I will only add something from being in the minneapolis area where we have had snow storm after snow storm and very little dry roads since November: If you live in an area where they put chemical on the roads and they do it a lot and you want to try to keep your MJ from being eaten alive, at any time its above 25 degrees run it through a car wash that has under body wash! BTW, above 25 days in our area have been rare lately! The first snow we had for this season is still on the ground since it turned cold at the same time and has stayed cold!
  9. got an 87 2.5 myself. WELCOME!!!!
  10. I have used "automotivetouchup" for my Olympic White 87, and it matches quite well. Gotta remember the years of exposure of the paint on the car has changed it while probably what we buy would be like the color when new, so will not be a perfect match.
  11. Thanks. That half turn made me fairly sure it was a ujoint and not the gear box also. Guess I start a'lookin for a shaft!
  12. had dual ouside mirrors on my 87 plain when I purchased it used. They were black. Their condition made them look original, I found some chrome ones and swapped.
  13. ... at around every half turn of my steering wheel both ways on my 352,000 mile 87 4x2 manual steering 'manche. Started a week ago and does not seem to get any worse. It's strong enough that when I allow the steering to naturally center itself, the last "bind" before centering keeps it from centering right away like it used to. My steering gear was replaced about 50,000 ago so I "think" it should be ok. Since it is both ways and every half turn, could it be one of the two steering shaft u-joints that I bet I will need to get a whole shaft if so? Or, are there bearings in the steering column for the shaft that could be the culprit?
