  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. Been 2014 since last time on the Club. Working toward retirement in 2016 caused me to stop posting w/o user and password written down, I forgot, so recently started again under new ones and Pete found my old one for me! THANKS PETE! Anyway in 2014 I was collecting the things I needed to have a 300hp chev 327 in her and would have made a "sleeper" type street rod "streetjeep". But, retirement came into view and along with eliminating all debt I had to abandon the project. Kept on using her the way she was as my almost daily driver. Now, I must sell her. Just not practical in our situation, and I want/hope someone might keep her a 4x2 and keep her stock or make her into what I was trying to make her, even if with a 4.0. So, she is an 87 4x2 2.5 4speed, no ac, no ps, and I have owned her for 15 years. Bought her at 240,000 + miles. Almost 380,000 total miles now. Right away stripped the seats and carpet out, found no rust on the floor boards (bought her in Puget Sound area), cleaned everything and put "pors" on floor boards. When not being driven, she was almost always garaged. Quick history looking back: 8/22/2019 New EGR valve 6/30/2019 Starter replaced with warranty info; 11/15/2018 alignment; 11/2018 rear shoes and hold down kit and cylinders; 11/5/2018 steering shaft to steering gear rebuilt by Indianapolis rack and axle; 11/2018 new tires 12/2017 Two new ujoints; 11/2015 new windshield 4/2015 front rotors, pads, wheel bearings etc; 3/2015 all tie rods etc and track bar (Rusty's) replaced with professional alignment; 6/2013 Alternator 08/2010 shocks 04/2009 new radiator 12/04/2006 (274514 miles) engine overhauled by S&S engine in Spokane Washington Due to yearly surface rust forming while living for a while in Minnesota, in 2015 rocker panels and bottom of back fenders were cleaned, etched, coated with Chassis Saver, primed and painted. And, drivers floor pan looks like it will need replaced in the near future. As with all of us with 'manches, it is tough to let her go, but as noticeable in pics, rear fender wells are starting to show some rust, and I can't afford to fix her, and hope someone who can, will. Asking $3,500.
  6. 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.
  7. ... 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? :???:
  8. 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.
  9. 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!
  10. got an 87 2.5 myself. WELCOME!!!!
  11. 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.
  12. 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!
