  1. Title says it all, shipped to 46750. Mine crapped the bed. Please let me know what you have. My build: https://r.tapatalk.com/shareLink?url=https://comancheclub.com/topic/8033-finally-found-onenow-it-has-a-new-floor/&share_tid=8033&share_fid=53169&share_type=t
  2. I have done a leak down test but not a coolant test. Every thing seems to be in order with the health of the truck. I was just always taught that anytime you pull a head you should have it checked. I suppose the oil seepage isn't terrible but it is really bugging me just because I know its possible to now pee oil everywhere I go. I am glad to hear that it is a common issue and not a pressing one. But unfortunately Ill never have a leak free comanche if I don't change it and I really wanna be leak free.....
  3. Best shots I could get of the leak. Its. All the way down the pushrod galley side. I'm not opposed to just a headgasket and bolt change if that takes care of it. Is this the common oil leak you reffer to?

  4. I don't think that cost estimate apply to mine. Already have a felpro reusable vc gasket. I am due for an oil change anyways. Just changed plugs wires cap and rotor. So I'm out some coolant and a tstat and gasket and a head gasket and bolts. The head gasket set (includes tstat gasket) can be had for $50 ish. And bolts for the same. So $100 worth of parts and I'm there. I personally don't count my jeep wrench time towards labor. Its just what I do when I can't go fishing. Lol. Besides even a $400 repair bill is still better than a new truck.

  5. What makes you so confident that I don't have a warp or crack in the head causing the leak? There is no sign of the gasket being blown out the side like I would expect from a gasket failure. Just oil seeping from head to block connection.

  6. I would use the tstat housing off the ho Are there advantages to the ho short block over the renix? My build: https://r.tapatalk.com/shareLink?url=https://comancheclub.com/topic/8033-finally-found-onenow-it-has-a-new-floor/&share_tid=8033&share_fid=53169&share_type=t
  7. The situation: I have been chasing oil leaks on my MJ for a while now fixing one after another. I have found the source of the worst one. It is the head gasket. I have a full shop and mechanically inclined to do just about any work I need to do, head gasket included. My situation becomes a little more difficult to resolve when I throw in the fact that I have a rolled 98 ZJ sitting in my shop with a good running 4.0HO. I would also like to avoid as much down time with the MJ as possible due to it being my daily. So I am seeking your advice on how I should approach the situation. Below are the options I am down to. What approach do you think is best? Funding is there for a full rebuild of the motor if nessecary but would be happy with a minor refreshing job on the internals. Keep in mind this is my daily so reliability is the goal. Not looking to build a high octane turbo stroker motor. Just a good solid truck I can count on to go anywhere I need. Option 1 Replace the head gasket in the MJ and go on down the road. The problem I have here is the day or 2 of down time while the head is at the machine shop being checked. Option 2 Pull the head from the ZJ, send it to the machine shop and checked. Install it on the MJ when it returns. Very little down time. Option 3 Pull the entire HO motor from the ZJ, disassemble, inspect, clean and reassemble the motor and when completed, install in MJ. Again very little down time.
  8. The evolution continues. I have decided tho proceed with my original plan and swap in am aw4. I know I know 5spd or die. But momma says she won't pull the boat with the manual. She doesnt trust herself enough to not back the truck and all in the water. Plus I think I got spoiled with my GMC. So today I recieved a start on the auto swap. Which I hope will also include adding cruise control.

  10. Bad switch confirmed. New switch installed and all works as it should. Again thank you to all who helped. My build: https://r.tapatalk.com/shareLink?url=https://comancheclub.com/topic/8033-finally-found-onenow-it-has-a-new-floor/&share_tid=8033&share_fid=53169&share_type=t
  11. Thats what I was thinking. Guess it's time to open the column. My build: https://r.tapatalk.com/shareLink?url=https://comancheclub.com/topic/8033-finally-found-onenow-it-has-a-new-floor/&share_tid=8033&share_fid=53169&share_type=t
  12. Test light shines bright. Jumping to C171_B causes the pump to run. Am I correct in assuming it is probably a bad switch at this point?

  13. C169_B to battery negative. No light key on or off. Washer button activated or not. C169_A to battery positive. Light constant anytime key is on My build: https://r.tapatalk.com/shareLink?url=https://comancheclub.com/topic/8033-finally-found-onenow-it-has-a-new-floor/&share_tid=8033&share_fid=53169&share_type=t
  14. Between the 2 terminals that connect to the washer pump. My build: https://r.tapatalk.com/shareLink?url=https://comancheclub.com/topic/8033-finally-found-onenow-it-has-a-new-floor/&share_tid=8033&share_fid=53169&share_type=t
  15. 12v jumpers direct to the pump it runs and pisses washer fluid down the leg of your pants when you test it out of the truck
