  1. Should be Aisin for that year Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  2. Rochester sounds like the Chevy 2.8 v6 Jeep used. Not sure what the 2.5 engine has I’d think it have to be whatever the renix system is. If it’s is the 2.8 V6 honestly that carburetor is junk one of the Weber DGES 38 conversion kits would be better in the long run. Far as parts for that carb they should be around if not in the Jeep parts catalogue then look under the 1984-5 Chevy s10 parts catalogue Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  3. That bell housing has the CPS hole. Still can be set up either way. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  4. Biggest difference if the holes/reluctor for the CPS sensor. I think the clutch kit may be the same for aisin transmission Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  5. Starting 1986 2.5 is a renix engine so it’ll be that era fly wheel. I believe the 2.5 1985 is carbureted. Looks like 87-90 wrangler 2.5 and 86-90 xj/mj are the same flywheel I remember something about the flywheel being a PITA to source. Worse that the 2.8 V6 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  6. Other big leak is the oil filter housing . Have to lift the motor up and possibly remove engine mount Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  7. The odds are it should be the one piece with bigger crank journals. But being a 2.8 god knows what’s actually in there If you can get the block # on the passenger side under the are near the exhaust manifold , second location is on top under the bracket for the power steering on top of the motor.

  8. Two styles in the gm 2.8. If if the later styles it’s a one piece seal you can access from the back by dropping the transmission. If it’s the older style it’s a two piece rubber seal, I think it is closer to the 4.0 but cat remember Btw gm changed to the one piece seal in 1985, so you 1986 MJ should be a one piece design but if the motor has been swapped or gm sold amc a older block who knows what actually there.

  9. Rockauto has the 2WD/RWD calipers listed, if you don’t like buying from them online try the caliper part numbers on amazon and see if they have them. I can see they are different from the 4WD caliper but I’m not sure how different. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  10. Just a thought, the 86 radiator is dead simple, metal tank looks like any other Jeep or tractor radiator of the 70’s and 80s some of the aftermarket that say oem have plastic thank and probably not really to spec. I have noticed a lot of aluminum radiator available that might fit, could be an alternative. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  11. Holley # 0-8007 (390 cfm) I think you might have to add some shims to the hood. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  12. IMHO Replace that factory carb with the Weber dgs 38(I think this is number) there are kits all over the internet for upgrading s10 and 2.8 jeeps. That’s keeping the rest factory while changing the carb. I rebuilt the factory carb, it gutless and over complicated as is most of the 2.8 vacuum routing and vacuum switches. The intake manifolds are good, it’s in two pieces, bottom intake, and upper which has two different options one with the egr plate present but not drilled will work with the Weber, there’s a second choice for a four barrel option, yes a there’s a huge Holley carb right at the limit of what fuel the 2.8 can effectively use. It looks Ridiculously big on that engine but many have reported good results with it. Of course they probably also dropped a 3.4 out of a 95 camaro in too. If you’re looking at the intake upgrade keep a eye on eBay because the sets pop up several times a year. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  13. I’ve had trouble with those clusters( 1984-85-86 & early 87) and bad printed circuits but so far not many others on the forums have shared my experiences. The buggy clusters I’ve had all had bad printed circuits, they were peeling away with the metal part of the circuit exposed. Dunno if it was the heat of the south or a exposure to water from a leaking windshield or something. Eventually I dropped a 89-90 cluster in. Far as the temp sender goes you’ve got to look for a 2.8 s10 or camaro sender, the parts catalogues for the Jeep 2.8 are never correct. Seems like the 84-85-86 2.8 6cyl catalog gets the 87 4.0 senders and sensors. There’s a recent thread where I posted the GM part number for the temp sender I used. I can try to look it up again if you need it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  14. Weird, because front or rear there ought to be little to no resemblance to 2018 calipers. Same basic function but the design is closer to what was high performance in the 1990s . Got to be a catalogue error. The newer Toyota looks like newer Jeep , I don’t see any car company going backwards, compromising safety for the sake of a few pennies.

  15. PS the 2.8 temp sensor is a PITA to find since almost all the parts catalogues will have it wrong for all 84-85-86 2.8 Jeeps, look for s10 or camaro 2.8 parts (for just about anything that bolts on the engine) I believe the Gm temp sender you should look for is ACDelco 213-80 GM, or anything aftermarket that interchanges with that. For oil pressure sender I’ve used gm s10 and the Jeep part # which I believe was the same 1987 until 1992-92. Tach is good to go, Fuel is good to go, Alt should good to go, Speedo would be best to get the correct cable, but it might work rigged with the old one.maybe. I think that’s it.
