Can Spell Comanche

Can Spell Comanche (2/10)

  1. Okay, Not a whole lot has changed but I was still having problems with the brakes after changing the whole front set up. I figured out that I did not have all the air out of the brake line on the driver's side. I got that out and then I realized that the adjuster on one of the back brakes was locked up and would not adjust. I got that replaced and finally had a good full pedal. Then I drove it about 5 miles today and felt a pull....kinda like it was bogging down. I stoped and noticed the front brakes were smoking. Upon further inspection I noticed that my brand new rotors had some gouges on them. Sheesh. As I drove it back to the shop it was worse. Almost like driving with the gas peddle and the brake on at the same time. I could not get out of 3rd gear because it would just slow me down too much and bog me down. Double Sheesh. I got it back in the shop, got it jacked up and the tires would not spin freely upfront. I undone the brakeline between the Master Cylinder and the caliper and it released some fluid. The wheel then spun freely. I pumped the brakes again and the same thing happened. This time I check at the Master Cylinder. In the end I found that it looks like I need a new Master Cylinder so I ordered one and it will be here in the morning at 7. I will update the post if that gets me going.

  2. I am in Louisiana. I don't know much about any wheeling places around but just thought I would say hello to a neighbor.
  3. Thanks for all of the tips and pointers. I am trying to learn about this stuff as I go but also trying not to buy things that in the end will not be the right stuff. I have been reading the links and watching videos as much as I can but I do learn better with hands on experience.
  4. Gotcha. Yeah that makes sense on the lug pattern. Didn’t think about that. I struggled with those anti rattle clips big time. Surely I was doing them wrong but couldn’t find anything to help me see how to do it.
  5. I know ....... another Axle question. Sorry, I could not find exactly what I was looking for through the search or the links. I am fairly lucky in that my Jeep Comanche has a Dana 44 in the rear and a Dana 30 in the front. I am happy with that. My questions are about disk brakes. While my front has disk brakes they were a pain in the butt to change and I am wondering about what it would take to change the disk brakes to a more modern version where it don't have those anti rattle clips like that? My JK pads I can change in about 30 min. Would be nice if the Comanche was easier like that also. I would also like the rear to have disk brakes also. I have read over some of the disk brake conversions that all use other makes disk brakes. With the aftermarket support of the JK models would it be possible and/or worth it to convert using the JK disk brakes? Is there another model jeep with all disk brakes that works? Is it just best to use a ZJ?
  6. Very nice. I hope to get my Comanche looking about like yours looks. Very well done.
  7. Here is a video of the rear axle. if it loads. IMG_7607.MOV
  8. Do you happen to have a photo of what it’s supposed to look like? I have tried to search and don’t see it. I guess maybe something is not hooked up.
  9. Are you talking about the thing on the rear axle for brakes? What made you ask? I’m new to all this and trying to learn as I go. Did you see something that made you ask?
  10. That would be cool. I have watched hours of different Comanche videos on YouTube lately for ideas and information.
  11. That's a good question. As I am new to all of this I am not 100% sure. I will have to look at it and see.
  12. For sure. I just recently watched a video where a guy addressed his rust and then put down some Por-15 and put down some Noico. Maybe it was your video if you have any on YouTube.
