  1. Gonna have to cut them off. Replace with heater hose and a hose clamp. Buy by the foot at any auto parts store. I deleted the valve there and converted to an open cooling system just last week. Cut the hose fitting, not the pipe coming out the firewall. You're gonna need that. 89 Comanche Eliminator 2wd 4.0L 5 speed PukeGoat Factory Original
  2. Y'all still have wood shop. They haven't had that in my area for 20 years. I had Ag Mechanics. Learned how to weld and work on farm machinery. Sadly that's gone as well. 89 Comanche Eliminator 2wd 4.0L 5 speed PukeGoat Factory Original
  3. 80s equals chrome. I'm still a fan of shiny chrome. Door handles, window vents, and side mirrors along with bumpers. Maybe even the trim around the windshield and door vent window, a Chrome grill. Now I don't know if all this came in any package together but I do remember seeing all these pieces on the Comanches. Oh and your light bar needs to be chrome or stainless steel. Lites are to be big round KC lights with the yellow covers. They now make LEDS in that style. 89 Comanche Eliminator 2wd 4.0L 5 speed PukeGoat Factory Original
  4. Hmmm....a Hemi in an MJ? Could be interesting. Btw I love the Hemi in my Ram truck. 89 Comanche Eliminator 2wd 4.0L 5 speed PukeGoat Factory Original

  6. Pressure bottle up by the fire wall. Hope it don't leak. 89 Comanche Eliminator 2wd 4.0L 5 speed PukeGoat Factory Original
  7. Lol, ours were built on the same day. My last Vin numbers are 547105. 99 trucks apart. 89 Comanche Eliminator 2wd 4.0L 5 speed PukeGoat Factory Original
  8. New heater bypass hoses. Getting rid of that pressure bottle. Hoses are hooked up to a new open radiator as well. It has been a full day putting this all back together. Only thing left is battery install and fill the radiator. But it's dark and cold so that's tomorrow's job. 89 Comanche Eliminator 2wd 4.0L 5 speed PukeGoat Factory Original

  10. Piece by piece. Working around family Christmas commitments, it's slowly going back together. Had to reuse the old injectors as the ones I ordered have never shown up. Cleaned them and installed me seals. Next up all them vacuum lines have to find a home. Then install the new open cooling system. 89 Comanche Eliminator 2wd 4.0L 5 speed PukeGoat Factory Original
  11. That seems to it. The "other" size had something to do with actually mounting and running a fan. My application doesn't do that. So I bought the shorter height and larger diameter hub.. Fit perfectly. 89 Comanche Eliminator 2wd 4.0L 5 speed PukeGoat Factory Original

    Fastenal

    Fastenal is the only game in my town for stuff I need now. And they have it. No going to 4 or 5 parts stores hoping they may have specialty stuff. And my work is 3 states away, so no getting that account 89 Comanche Eliminator 2wd 4.0L 5 speed PukeGoat Factory Original

    So I just went there to get some bolts for the MJ. They got a sign up that starting next Monday you have to have an account or 25 dollar minimum order. And if you don't have an account you can only shop at certain hours of certain days. This is a corporate thing and not Covid related. They are my go to source for anything specialty but I only go 2 to 3 times a year. Not enough for an account. The limited shopping hours are what ticks me off. And the employees don't even know the hours yet. 89 Comanche Eliminator 2wd 4.0L 5 speed PukeGoat Factory Original
  14. Sounds like we are in the same boat. Jegs has everything you need. Rock auto has most if it. Amazon does too but good luck finding it. The parts stores have most of it as well but require ordering. I've got parts from all. 89 Comanche Eliminator 2wd 4.0L 5 speed PukeGoat Factory Original
  15. So what's the difference in factory OEM direct fit pumps. One gives me 2 5/8" diameter hub and 3.72" hub height. Other one is 3.313" diameter hub with a hub height of 2.31" both say they are direct fits for my 4.0L and are OEM. What does the difference do to the belt placement? And why? 89 Comanche Eliminator 2wd 4.0L 5 speed PukeGoat Factory Original
