    Lifter replacement

    Awesome. I'm planning on replacing the entire exhaust system because it's full of holes, I'm sure it won't sure it, but it'll sound better I'm sure. Thanks all.

    https://youtu.be/iISYM6Tx2Gs Tell me what you think, please. I also have bad exhaust leaks, but I'm sure it's more than that.

    Lifter replacement

    Thank you everyone. Eagle, I'll get a video of my engine running for a sound comparison. Hopefully it won't be to bad. I'll post it as soon as possible.

    Lifter replacement

    158k approximately. Previous owner broke the speedometer cable so not sure exactly how many miles, but I fixed it and that's what it says now.... I had the internal engine professionally cleaned with run rite about 5 years ago. Have always used full synthetic Valvoline with Max Life. 5qts plus a bottle of Lucas oil stabilizer. 10W30 usually. Not sure if the oil pressure gauge has ever worked. It's usually around 20? At idle. About 40 on the highway. That's always concerned me but others have said that's normal for us.

    Lifter replacement

    Would it be beneficial to replace the pushrods and rockers while I have it all apart or just replace the lifters. I really don't want to replace the camshaft.
  6. So I'm not doing anything at the moment but I am planning on removing the valve cover on my 4.0 and pushing down on the rockers to see if I might have a shot lifter. I have the tick sound that plagues our Comanches. Pretty much all the time. Sounds like a diesel engine. You know the drill. So I figured I'd start there. I have read pretty much everywhere online and even in my Haynes manual that it's important to put push rods and rocker arms back in the same spot they came from. I'm the kind of guy that likes to replace everything while I'm in there so I don't have to go back in there. I found a set of push rods and lifters for like $65.00 on eBay. I've never done this, and am wondering if it's important to put the rods back in the same spot, then can I put in new ones? I have read also that I do not have to replace the cam if replacing the lifter, but I would have to replace lifters if replacing cam. I don't want to mess with the cam. Sorry for such a long post. 1989 Pioneer, 4.0L, 4x4, Long bed.

    3rd Coast Comanche Club

    I might branch it off into instagram and twitter too. Just getting going, it's slow but it's going. I really think it will take off once word spreads and hopefully I'll have a more centralized group geographically.
  10. I guess this is the right area to post. Hope it's OK to do so. I've started a facebook group of Comanche lovers, I'm based out of Corpus Christi Texas. If you're interested, check out 3rd Coast Comanche Club on facebook. Looking forward to networking with Comanche guys and gals in my area.
  11. So as stated in my previous post, I'm about to replace my down pipe, muffler, cat, and tail pipe due to rust and holes etc. 1989 Pioneer 4.0 5 speed manual. Thinking now that I'm replacing everything else, I should replace my manifold while i'm at it. Looking online for pricing and it's a bit expensive compared to everything else. I found stainless steel headers for way cheaper but they say they are for a 91-95 (or something) Wrangler and Cherokee. Cheaper and better looking. Will other 4.0L exhaust manifolds fit on our MJs 4.0, without heavy modifications?

    Exhaust Systems

    Always nice to see other Comanches, even better when I know they are "in the club." Wish I was off work, I'd meet up. Love fishing and MJs.

    Exhaust Systems

    I plan on Walker exhaust pipe. Got to add the cat, probably just go with whatever. Then I guess I'll check sound clips online for the muffler. I know it won't be the same. I heard good things about flow master 40 series I think it was.
  14. I'm sure there are probably several other threads about this already. I did searches but didn't find quite what I was looking for. I have holes in the down pipe, I don't have a cat but don't see any evidence that I ever did. All the pipe and hangers and everything seem to be where they should be. So I'm looking at replacing everything from the exhaust header down. I have never done this and have questions. Everything appears to be bolted on, is this correct? I would like to add the cat back on. I assume I had one from the factory, but it sure doesn't look like it. Then my other question is, what mufflers will give me the best sound? I don't want something annoying, but I'd like a good growl if it's possible from a 4.0L. I've found the pipe online for like 30 bucks each. So what else do I need? Gaskets? Hangers? Clamps? Any input would be great. Thanks all. 1989 Pioneer. 4.0L Long Bed.
