  1. I believe they were in the 4x4 dakotas too.
  2. Hopefully. Are your engine mounts pulled or anything? Like pushed at an od angle?
  3. My guess is that a 94 housing then. Which he did say earlier on. Hear are some measurements on mine
  4. i did find the ba 10 to be short enough to cause shifter issues tho. i had to use the cover plate for it vs the ax 15. but the whole in the floor was plenty big enough.
  5. hmm ill grab some pics with measurements. and see if yours line up the same. i beleive i read the same thing. that they are the same. but unlus your mounts somehow shifted an inch. or you got the one truck made an inch shorter... i think you got something else going on. at least it will give you a few ideas anyway. altho mine no longer has the 231j in it or the factory cross member. it still has the ax15 and jeep 4.0 in factory spots.
  6. its possable they changed the input shaft lengths on the transmision as well. i would say maybe look up some specs on different years and see if its changed. and yours is deffiniatly an ax 15 but it looks newer. i know there is changes to the 231j t case. it wouldnt surprise me if other things changed too.
  7. ok I'm not sure if ya have it figured out but it looks like the BELL housing is too long. in theory yes the 94 should fit but it clearly doesnt and your transmissions position proves this. having done a 2wd to 4x4 conversion mine lined up perfect. here's a bit of my experience. truck 89 2wd ax 15. swaped out to a 92 4x4 ax15 / 231j tcase trans has internal slave. i blew transmission. put in peugot pos thing. yes it is in fact shorter!!!! i had to change my cross member position. repaired ax trans put back in. i had to use the 4x4 drive shaft from the comanche. but otherwise i used cherokee stuff for the front. i never changed engine mount or crossmember. from what it looks like the 94 bell housing with external slave is longer. you may have to find one from a closer year. evidently i do have a spare, but its internal slave and I'm in canada so shipping could be brutal. if you want i can try to get pics and measurements. of what mine looks like. just soot me a message.
  8. having trouble. anyone ever get a bad oil pump? i have a 1992 4.0, " rebuilt" the block new bearings new rings, new gaskets, honed cylinders full valve recut and head job, compression varies 135 to 145. figured while I'm in there new oil pump, but.... ever since first fire up oil pressure is up there. i started with a mecheanical gauge. it read 85 pluss psi.but engine ran perfectly. no ticks no weird noises nothing, if wasnt for the guauge you wouldnt know different. figured its fine. fast forward 7000km. swapped out to oem guages. oil pressure still reads high, maxes out the gauge when running above 1500rpm. loads of oil in the top end. when you shut if off you can hear it pouring down. so not plugged filter. lots of power. engine seems to be happily broken in. decent fuel mileage 400km to a tank 6.5 inch lift with 31s, however I'm concerened the high pressure is going to cause issues. i can hear a mild tick now when its running. I'm thinking lifters? maybe the pressure is too high? I'm not sure. could be exhaust leak too. its tough to narrow down. i have never seen a pump push that much oil before. it was a stock spec replacement. but its an engine tech brand. thinking chinesium? either way i don't think the pressure relief in the pump is working proper. thoughts? spec in my haynes book is 12 psi hot idle. 45 psi above 1500 rpm.
  9. well having done a 4wd conversion. its pretty straight forward. everything just swaps over. the only issue you will have mechanically is the rear driveshaft. the 2wd and 4x4 shafts are different length. shifter spot in the floor is just a cover plate. so you can just put in the shifter from the xj. i loved when i did mine. i thought it was goining to be this huge pain. but it turns out jeep just had one body for both 2wd and 4wd. all the bolt hols were there and threaded for the skid plates too. by far one of the easiest swaps i have ever done.
  10. how hot is the engine? ive had 92s do that when they over heat. with idiot lights i guess its hard to tell. maybe pop hood and let cool down?
  11. i guess maybe i wasnt specific.. sorry. i have a running and driving 90 that has an ho motor in it with a renix ecu. hard starting tho. trying to figure out why but not solving it. i have a 92 comanche i have been slowly pulling parts from. it still has the complete wiring harness ecu dash everything. i plan to pull dashes from both jeeps and swap interiors. ( 1 is grey one is red. i like the grey more) at the same time i am putting in ac. now being that everything will be apart thats the time to swap ecus and wireing if.... its worth it. otherwise i won't bother. otherwise ill just leave the renix alone. but i would like better starting and a cleaner wiring system..
  12. so ive looked and looked and i haven"t found much info. so i finally did my ho swap... but its in a 1990 renix. now I'm sure many of you know renix wiring leaves alot to be desired.... now i have a 1992 comanche complete... minus alot of stuff... but the full wiring is there. is it worth swaping harneses over from the renix to the 92? yes i know its alot. I'm also planning on installign ac that will be coming out of the 92.. so dash and everything will be apart so thats the time to do it. i have everything i need. but is it worth it? i have a starting issue i can't seem to nail down either... thoughts?
  13. Ok so uptdate i pulled the ho out and slaped in another renix 4.0 i have runs perfact. So whatever the problem is or was is in the engine itself not the wiring.
