  1. I had to rip the floors up all the way to the back wall of the cab. Wish I save the sideways triangle bit because I think it was the only salvageable part 😅
  2. Does anyone know the name or the part number of the small floor suport connecting from the inner rocker to the middle frame. I believe it's the same on cherokees as well but was replaced with that box tube looking one that their seat mounts to. Any help would be greatly apreciated!
  3. Status update: It was the first place I should of looked, the grounding strap from the engine to the firewall. Enough contact to engage the solenoid and kind of spin the flywheel but only enough grounding to make a racket. I've always heard "any weird electrical problem, start with the grounding strap". Should of started there.
  4. So it definitely had some rust spot in the back cylinders. I soaked them with diesel for a bit and turned it over by hand. Still has some rough spots but getting less and less prominent with every spin. The battery reads 12.29 so not great but not awful. Would that little voltage with some old cables maybe help?
  5. So I finally got some time to work on the manche. Started by pulling the starter. Ran it fine of jumper cables but took it to napa to double check. They confirmed it was good. Painted it with gear marking paint and reinstalled and it turned the engine first try, bo problems(fuel and spark disconnected) second try, no luck. Frustrating to say the least. I think its engaging fine but not really sure how far out the gears supposed to come. These are the two pictures I got. Would really appreciate any input before I pull the tranny again.
  6. It's been a while since I married the engine and trans. I think it had two clicks and didn't fight. When I tightened the tq to flex plate, it jumped a bit but I was thinking it was just sitting on the threads. Computer and sensor has been swapped. It used to have a 2.5 manual
  7. Dzimm I did have it split apart, I replaced the engine trans, transfer case, new driveshaft and wiring harness. Is there any way to check the tq converter?
  8. I swapped a 95 4.0 and aw4 into my 86 manche. Got all pumped to start it for the first time and no luck. The starter engages but isn't making a happy noise. It will turn the belt very slowly. Theres some tough spots where the engines been sitting for a while. If I turn it by hand (1/2 ratchet on pulley) I can get almost a start with no starter death noise. Next week, I'm going to pull the spark plugs and see if that gives it less of a resistance to spin but does anyone else have some advice. Cylinder one looked clean. I stored it with diesel for a while when the heads were off. Just need the m
  9. I have an 86 and this is in the plan for the future so I can run the 87+ upper radiator support and hood latches nicer from my 95 swap. Its definitely nice seeing someone go through the process
  10. Thanks dzimm! I'll pop that ring terminal on this weekend. That black plug I'm holding might go to the fog light harness that mines not equipped with. Can someone confirm that? Also I have three plugs in the front. Two go to the horns but I'm not sure what the third go to. I grabbed a picture today.
  11. Just finishing up my 95 4.0 into an 86 lwb swap. I have a few random plugs and I'm not really sure what they go to. Does the first ring terminal attach to the ignition coil bolt. Also does anyone know what any of these 3 plugs go to in the second picture? Any help is greatly appreciated
  12. Doing some more searching, I came across that last sensor. That is the temp sensor that goes to your gauges, not the computer, correct?
  13. Thanks guys! That's one off the list of things I have to worry about haha The engine came out of a 96 cherokee 4.0 sport. It came from someones field half complete for 350$.
  14. Thanks Ωhm!!! That helps allot. Do you know if it was tied down to something or just floating around with a relay on it?
  15. after about a year and a half, I'm finally finishing up the 4.0 swap into my fathers 86 Comanche. Being my first engine swap, it never occurred to me to label any of the electrical connectors as I took them all off. I found a home for most of them but I'm a little lost on four of them. Any help identifying them would be greatly appreciated. The first two are located near the battery. I think the large one might be a factory fog light connector. The third one is on the other side of the engine bay near the computer. That one possibly might be a diagnostic port. The last one is on the back firew
