  1. Test came back negative, so I'm going back to work tomorrow. Our client has fully freaked out though, so I think they will cease operations after the weekend.
  2. My point, it isn't an export market. They built all sorts of different Jeeps here (along with every other brand of vehicle) and normally they're 99% the same as the US versions since they will supply either country from the same plant. We don't get anything special. So stop spreading the lie that you could get them in Canada. The Wagoneer D44 front is the biggest waste of time ever, and that's coming from somebody that actually swapped one in. And the complicated 5x4.5 to 6x5.5 (or vice versa) adapters are a horrible compromise as well. I'll expand on either point if you want.
  3. I think the panic is starting to set in here. They cancelled hockey, so it must be bad! Personally I'm not overly worried about it, however I'm awaiting test results right now to determine what I'm doing tomorrow.
  4. Canada is NOT an export market in the eyes of AMC, Chrysler, FCA, etc. I know there is people claiming that it was possible, but it's based on the same flawed idea that Canada was an export market and thus could order options that were not available in the US. You couldn't, and the only difference between the models was the gauge clusters and some mandatory features depending on year. As to the Isuzu rear, how do you deal with it being 6 lug?
  5. I have seen zero evidence that Canadian versions could have the D44.
  6. I have zero interest in running a WJ pump on this. I have one on my XJ, since it has hydro assist and really benefits from the increased flow. This is going to use a stock box, and like you said it's pretty much pointless then. I believe the pumps effectively interchange. I was going to use a HO pump if they didn't, and save my Renix pumps for rainy days. I have both but I'm not home to physically compare them.
  7. Can you swap the power steering pumps between a Renix and HO? I know the bracket is slightly different between them, but I want to say the pump mounts the same and pulley offset is the same. Rockauto lists different P/Ns but that doesn't mean a lot.
  8. Thanks. Looks like it will help a bit. I'll probably need more, even with moving the box forwards (and down). It's not my first rodeo with steering and track bars. "I know what I'm doing" Of course I'm still stupid enough to start a tech thread in the pub.
  9. Due to major clearance issues I need to run a drop pitman arm. Or I think I will. ZJ is a 1" drop versus MJ, correct? Anyone gone aftermarket and found the results reasonable? I see lots of them list as a drop pitman arm for "YJ, TJ, XJ" etc when all of these used different arms to begin with, so it's a little hard to know what you're actually buying. I plan to order or track down a couple because it seems trial and error is often the best option.
  10. There's a picture from the FSM with frame dimensions. I may still have it but I know I'd hosted it on Photobucket (which is gone). I'm not home to take another one from the FSM... But I'll look. Edit - I do not have it anymore, but anyone with an 89-92 FSM (it was a Chrysler drawing rather than an AMC one) should be able to get it for you, or look on Cruiser's site to see if he has a FSM in that year range.
  11. What brand of bearings are in their kit? I'm in Canada so you'd have to deal with international shipping. Not sure if you want to do that.
  12. I want to freshen up the NP242 I have sitting on the shelf. Application was 1987 XJ. It seems you can't easily get an OEM NVG chain from them anymore, but the Mopar number is still active and $300 USD online. Ehhh... Maybe I missed where I can get one. Is Cloyes any good? They're available and inexpensive. P/N appears to be 10028 if anyone could verify. For a rebuild kit it looks like the easiest one I can get is the SKF STCK242. Any reason not to? Last question is I have a 23 spline input from a 94 Dodge NP241DLD that I want to use in it. As far as I know it should interchange into the 242, the gear pitch is correct and I think they're the same bearing. Any idea if it isn't? I'm aware the input length is wrong for most things, but I'm bolting it to a TJ NV3550 so it will work.
  13. Factory or fancy aftermarket brake controller integrator or something like that, from a Dakota...
  14. Or braze... Pretty easy to do. I didn't really think about that, but I'd 100% do that before "just sending it."
  15. Given how cheap a block is I'd get another one. Yeah, it probably will seal, but I had a truck that I fought with the rear main seal on and hated every minute of it. Personally I think it will be okay, but the two piece rear main seal is a weakness to begin with. I got $4.51 for the last block I got rid of. It was a NVH block too.
