  1. Anyone know of a reversed pitman arm steering box i can use on my comanche LS conversion. I put in a full rad and now have to move the steering box toward the driver putting the pitman arm to tie rod over the axle. putting a pitman arm facing the front bumper will solve my problem. i just don't know what junkyard box to get since the box will need to be reversed rotation of the pitman arm or i will turn left when turning steering wheel right! LOL Any thoughts appreciated?
  2. Thank you both. Will be working on it this weekend.
  3. I noticed both the temp and oil switches are single wire. Will the sensors be single wire as well? Thank you for your input.
  4. Anyone done a dummy gauge cluster to a full gauge cluster swap? I have an 86 Comanche with the 2.5L Standard trans and want to do the cluster swap. I have a full gauge cluster in but not all the gauge work correctly. What needs changed out and how do you go about it? Oil Pressure Voltage Fuel Temp. My Tach is working believe it or not.
  5. I started to do the steering column bracket when i noticed there might be a steering wheel location change and wanted to see if i was going to lose room before i did. If i leave the 87 column i will do a custom metal dash.
  6. Thanks guys, especially for the diagram Dzimm. Going less room will have to be reevaluated now. A custom dash with the old steering wheel? Cardboard template dash here I come.
  7. Anyone do a steering/dash swap that can help me out? I need to know if there is more room when you put in a 97+ steering column and dash. My 6'-4" son doesn't fit so well in my 1987 Comanche. I want to pass the truck down to him.
  8. A lot of guys have done a lot of things for a stroker. Looking for oppinions and facts. What combination of the 4.0L engine line will give the most reliable gains in HP and TQ? Stock items:(from any year-make) Block= Head= Intake= Injectors= Headers= Ignition control=(unless a buyout is needed) Crank=(258)right Con. Rods=(258)right Anything missing? Buyout items: Cam= Anything missng? This is for a 1987 Comanche Metric Ton 4x4 auto. Must be as bolt in as possible. If not please list mods needed. Blueprinting and balancing is an after thought. I was thinking of a Megaquirt in this any comments appreciated. Thanks, Stonehands
  9. I have come a long way with this truck since I first posted its many problems. Down to just one now. The #%$& thing has a miss at all rpms. New wires, plugs, cap, rotor. Checked all sensors except the one on the bellhousing. Crank Position I think. Can not change timing on this engin. I do hear lifters a little as engin picks up rpms. Don't know what If any sound should be made. No vacuum leaks as far as I can tell. Checked everything. Has 17 what ever designation it should be of vacuum. Tighten manifold bolts. Spark pattern using timing light on each plug one at a time shows consistant flash pattern no noticable breaks in flashes. Don't know if poor injecting can cause this or not.Have not tested fuel pressure. Checked sensors to specs in book except one listed above. All look good via the multi-meter. Checked compression on 4 inner cylinders. If leak between cylinder would have shown for cylinder closest to outers. Did not check outter due to space constraints. Could be leaking at exh. valve. No backfiring. Did backfire when electronic boxes on drop panel in dash were not connected. When reving engin. Does not when all is connected. Cruise control does not work.Don't know if this can cause a miss. Don't know jack about cruise on this thing. Found vacuum ball in bumper pulled out and mounted in space where old coolant bottle use to sit by blower motor. Made sure all vacuum lines to it were good and no leaks. Replace close loop with open. Mabey something there I didn't do that I should have? Well there you have it. What I have done so far trying to find the problem. My suspisions are Injectors/pressur,valve/lifter, or crank sensor. What do any of you think. Tired of typing now-chow.
  10. Checked timing again around 19 deg BTDC. Any thoughts?
  11. Anyone interested in a Fuel injection project. Non Jeep related. This will be a motorcycle carb to injection conversion. I need help with the electronics of it. This is to proto on my KTM 530 EXC-R. These bikes have been having major problems with jetting. Mine is too. So want to creat a conversion kit to FI. PM me on interest and any know how on FI - especially with bikes.
  12. Just found a leak in my cruze control vacuum line. Looked at this before and didn't find any thing. Now I know why. the leak was a brittle section in the line that goes down thru the headlight area. Ccuze control test later. Took her out after the leak fix. Actually found it when I moved it to the engine compartment from front bumber. kept hearing air flow in one side of ball. It has two sides one for heater controls and one for cruze. I digress. Stomped on gas at dead stop in rain. Launced me forward but didn't break loose. This thing gets good traction I guess. Power braked it and the tires lit up. Will be testing it out later for up hill power. Will also check timing again after vacuum leak fix. Still a slight miss. Asuming it is injector issue now since timing light shows no break in light pattern on all plugs (new plugs byt he way). Thanks for the help so far guys making some progress here. On the gearing issue since that has been milled around. What gears should be in my Metric Ton version. It has the D44 rear end as I posted originally.
  13. Wow 2-8 BTDC. Mine is over 12. Just found a leak in my cruze control vacuum line. Looked at this before and didn't find any thing. Now I know why. the leak was a brittle section in the line that goes down thru the headlight area. Vacuum test to come. Took her out after the leak fix. Actually found it when I moved it to the engine compartment from front bumber. kept hearing air flow in one side of ball. It has two sides one for heater controls and one for cruze. I digress. Stomped on gas at dead stop in rain. Launced me forward but didn't break loose. This thing gets good traction I guess. Power braked it and the tires lit up. Will be testing it out later for up hill power later. Will also check timing again after vacuum leak fix. Still a slight miss. Asuming it is injector issue now. Later on that. Thanks for the help so far guys making some progress here.
  14. So how do you know if is in time? Wouldn't you atleast be given the timing for idel at an rpm? Could the miss be a bad injector or plug wire? What about a pluged cat? Ive posted before about this problem and the post got off subject and completly out of hand. I guess kids?
