Oh yeah burnt the hell out of that throw out bearing. Wouldn't you know it, I was on my way to work. Yep custom intake and open up air flow I, someone else on CC has done similiar using a speaker mesh to cover as to mine is just open. Attempted to do CAD flip but needed to jack up truck to aline 2 piece shaft for colar to slide over. Someone elses photo on CC but just to show what it looked like before I closed it up. Oh that's my clutch pedal and clutch master push rod linkage Cleaned up both brake and clutch pedal welded clutch pedal Reinstalled, just wish I could have removerd the hanger for clean up too.
I purchased this Comanche a few weeks back for $500. towed it home on a dolly with the hood tied down. I figured I would save it and see how the repairs go. I looked her over good and she does not have any rust on her and only a few minor dents here and there. She does have the 4.0 with 207 K miles, and a 5sp tranny. Has 3.07 gears in the rear. But it is a 2wd (oh the shame), but that will be rectified. It did not have a dipstick and that was one of the things I wanted to find at the local salvage pick n pull.there was only about 1/2 gallon of water in the coolant system. and mismatched tires. It has not been registered since 2013. So far I did a major tune-up with a new radiator, hoses, and water pump. Cleaned out the inside completely and put in a rear view mirror. Repaired the brake system. replaced the trac bar and a tie-rod end, change the rear differential gear oil. replaced the window regulator. Replace the speed-o-meter cable and the emergency brake cable. All the fuses as well as the flasher relays. I ahve almost gone from stem to stern on her to make sure she is ready for just a daily driver. Plans for it; make it a 4wd as I find a Cherokee donor vehicle. I will do a 3" or 4" lift on it and add 31"or 32" tires. new bumpers. and do the body work. it is a toss of whether to paint her or just do a vinyl camo wrap from Mossy-oak. Put 3.54 gears in it and change the rear axle to Dana 44 and the front to a Dana 30hp. there are ideas running around to change the renix out and go with a newer electrical system but I am not sure if I am ready for that. I will upgrade the renix system for now. I am also thinking of putting on the 97+ doors to rid myself of the wing window. I may rebuild the engine. but that will be much latter. This is about all for now. I will keep you posted on what I find as I go along with the refurbishment of the Rascal. .
Currently sitting in a taco bell parking lot with the wife waiting for a tow truck. In the mean time, thought I'd gather some info. So I had a sneaking suspicon the Alternator was going bad but couldn't be sure. Turns out, it was. While eating it was in idle and started to smoke. Shut down really quick, popped the hood, had wife try cranking it, Alternator pulley is no go. Toast. This Jeep is the 2.5L TBI, the Alternator is mounted below the AC compressor, can't seem to find any info or videos on this 1986 on how to dig into it to replace the bad alt. Anyone here have any good videos or write ups on this task? The alternators are availible at the Auto zone nearby, (literally next door to where we are sitting), they have one on order for me to be here tomorrow. Will be digging into replacing it sunday. Any information helps.
