    I'm back!

    Well... Looks like ill be doing the radiator change sooner than later... My radiator which is about 12 years old... Blew out... So looks like its time to save up and snag all the parts for the open system... Of course this happens right after a new belt, plugs, and wires too...
  2. Anyone got a part number on those lights? I want a set! My original ones are broken.

    I'm back!

    After 6 long years, one new clutch, flywheel, slave cylinder, master cylinder... New gas tank, cherokee fuel hanger, new fuel line... New fluids... New battery.... And a bit of coaxing... She lives again! After changing her fluids and adjusting her brakes i took her around the block.... Darn speedometer doesnt work... I think the cable might be broken? Looking online at the local parts houses theres a short 38" and a long 92"... Anyone know what length is in an 88 comanche with a 4.0 4wd with the Peugeot trans?
  4. Looking at the engine the other day i noticed this plastic H? That looks like it once held rigid plastic piping but its broken off... I can't see anything it would connect to... Maybe someone with the service manual will be able to guide me to what it is, how its connected, etc...

    Hey hobo! welcome aboard! Yeah the truck went out sometime in 2012/2013 when my foot went to the floor trying to change gears... clutch went out... well it sat up at my dads place, and owning at the time the 03 p71 I never got around to fixing it... well years went by like they do, the 03 blew a ujoint and broke the driveshaft and it got junked, replaced by an 08 p71, and yet more time passed... and then i bought my first house and the truck had to go... so it sat at my place, and i kept meaning to get around to it, but work and repairing the house, being married with small children... kept putting it off... Well... long story short, I've come a long way mechanically and its time to get it running again and not just sitting in my garage... So I got the parts to repair the BA10 (yes i know, perfect time to swap it, but that'll come later, I need the truck to get the transmission home) and have been working on it the last few days, pulling the transmission, and refreshing the engine... this summer I had replaced the fuel tank and sending unit, since it had sat up for so long the fuel could strip paint... unfortunately no one makes an MJ sender and I had to use a XJ sender... Anyway long story short, It's going to be breathing again soon, and I'll be happy to drive it again... I just wonder where all the years have gone!

    I'm back!

    After a several year hiatus (last i logged in was 2013 WOW!) I stumbled across my old stomping grounds! Hello everyone who may remember me with my 1988 Comanche Pioneer! It's been a long long road... If anyone remembers me, please say hello! we probably have a lot of catching up to do... Anyway I thought I'd drop back in and let you know I'm still alive! Now it's time to go catch up on what I missed for the last 6 years...
  7. Hey y'all I finally found my second vehicle, a 2003 ex transit authority railroad p71 police interceptor. She runs real good, got cold a/c, rack in pinion steering, and heated mirrors, but my Comanche still beat's her out in my heart, I think I'll love that truck more than any other vehicle I ever own. Anyway thanks for all y'all's help out there in helping me track it down, although I bought it from the state found a good source for government auctions... Anyway will post pics soon as I can clean 'er up and get the camera out. Y'all take care!
  8. ran all my vac hoses down, still high on the idle, unplugged the one that leads to the "map sensor" and...no high idle, has air flowing through the hose (making a spfff sound) map sensor go bad after i cleaned the throttle plate? or what? Edit: I do know that the correct amount of power is running to the sensor (5 volt and 2.5) by using an ohm meter but i don't know how the sensor is working as i can't get a probe in there the right way without busting something.
  9. hate to ask but if i fried it, how much is a TPS and whats the part number?
  10. TB i assume means throttle body, and no i removed the hose thing above it, scrubbed the plate then wham high idle... TPS? aren't those the reports Peter had to fill out in office space? other than that i have no idea what a TPS is... and Oxygen sensor safe cleaner? i dunno it was throttle, carb, and something cleaner... As for hoses the only one I removed was the big one over the throttle body, other than that I didn't remove anything.
  11. Hey y'all I cleaned my throttle plate with throttle cleaner, and then I got a high idle at 2, so I checked my vac lines and not a one seems to be leaking. I thought it might be the IAC but after i replaced it, it went down when it first starts to a idle of 1.5 but then after running for awhile goes back up to a 2 when idling, what could be the problem? there another thing that could be screwing up?
  12. no body really answers the one main question, how hard is it to install another rod? as for the rod, couple bucks eh? pm me with details
  13. so i can't just replace the rod? it only sheered right where the screw base of the knob goes (so i can't screw the new knob on there) it'll still shift its just shorter, and i don't know what transmission is in the '88 i know its a five speed...
  14. hey yall remember my post a short while ago looking for a shifter knob? well i got one from that guy and when i went to take the old knob off, it sheered the shifter rod clean off at the screw base!! :cry: so my question is two fold, how hard is it to replace the shifter rod? and is anyone parting out a manual mj/xj with a rod that'll work? i need one now...
  15. when did you buy that radiator? the picture shows one without a bung, do i request a bung? or order for my year or for the newer year?
