  1. I would make sure the 'new' turns over by hand and you can't hear any rattling or anything in the motor. I would do minimum what the others said, but if you could, do a re-ring kit. Dingleberry hone the cylinders and slap it back together.
  2. Is there a way to get the pictures back or were they destroyed with the photobucket hackle. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk

    1988 Comanche Cab Water Leak

    Yes, either the fuse box connector or the clutch master cylinder (not sure if you have an auto or not).

    1990 Comanche Parting Out

    Have the shifter assembly for the ax15? Shipped to SC 29715
  6. Hey guys, i've been searching over the web and found a little info on the 242J. I found one with SlecTrac 2wd, Part Time 4wd, 4wd, etc. I got excited and pulled it and then noticed there's no speedo gear input (it is machined blocked? In picture). Could I just get another older year rear cover with the speedo open and swap it? It's connecting to my ax15 23spline. Thanks!

    Not positive it is 23 spline out. I'll have to count later today. I'm thinking also there's no drive gear on the output shaft. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk

    2.5 Renix> 4.0 swap

    If you are staying renix (87-90) you just need the underhood wiring harness, 4.0, trans and tcase. There are a couple of threads out there. I followed/following mjeff87's build
  10. I searched and couldn't find an actual full parts list. I'm putting in a 1998 XJ ax15 into my 87 Comanche (88 engine wiring) I'm doing a 4.0 swap so I have a 94 4.0 and a 98 ax15. I'm using my 88 engine wiring and sensors onto the 4.0 (cruiser's help) and need to make sure I get the correct parts before pulling the bullet. I'm going to need a 98 clutch kit (probably lux), an 88 renix flywheel, this slave cylinder etc. https://www.rockauto.com/en/moreinfo.php?pk=1136086&cc=1180213&jsn=1, pilot bushing - https://www.rockauto.com/en/moreinfo.php?pk=628303&cc=1309441&jsn=3. What else do I need for this swap? Thanks

    AX15 Swap parts list

    Wow. Just what I needed! Thank you so much! I'm going to do my searching for the input shaft on the tcase. I just counted my tcase in the shop and it's a 21 spline so I guess it's time to go shopping. Thanks again! Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk

    Alternator fried.

    I'm sure it either comes out from the bottom or top of the engine bay. I'm sure there's a bracket on one of the pulleys to loosen the belt. Just look in the engine bay and around the Alternator to see how it's mounted and such.

    Evolution '88

    Your attention to detail is amazing. Great build. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  18. Agreed, ecactly how I found out it was my track bar.
  19. Check your track bar joint under the driver side motor mount. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  20. Good plan with the second 4.0. Good luck Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  21. Bearing looks a little worn to me. I would go ahead and take it to a machine shop. Get the crank turned (If needed) and see if you have a rig on the cylinder walls. More than likely a rebuild is in your future, especially if you have a tick, get new lifters while you're in there. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  22. My 88 renix motor needs a rebuild badly and I don't have funds for the machine shop right now and I found a 92 HO motor from a cherokee.. He has the harness and ecm. Could I just drop this in or should I swap my renix sensors and stuff to the HO motor and run it that way? Thanks for the advice. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk

    88 renix to 92 HO motors

    ? I'm using the wiring and ecm from a renix 88 mj into my 2.5 mj. I don't get your comment... the 4.0 out of the 88 needs rebuilt but I don't have the funds right now to spend $1300 for that. So I was asking if I could use an HO in its place.. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk

    88 renix to 92 HO motors

    I have ecu and wiring from donor 88 4.0.. I just figured it would be easier to stay renix then do HO. I would only have to do underhood harness instead of interior with 2.5 to 4.0 swap correct? Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
