still got my I6 V-card


Recommended Posts

needs new water pump, i know that

has 100000 miles on it(140000hms actually) needs valve cover gasket. new exhaust. 89, 4.0, with an aw4

 

now

 

when it runs, it has white smoke, not really sure if its just a lot of condensation or not. but its also pushing out something b lack. doesnt feel like oil but its mixed in with the condenstsaion so who knows?

 

hoping its just carbon from not running for a while

 

What else should i be looking at?? also idles a little rough. i don't want to run it for too long as i havent actually changed the water pump yet. its just sitting there

 

give me ideas fellas. theres a little oil in the air filter, but not much

should i worried about a rebuild?? maybe just a head gasket??? with 140000kms i figured it should have been a real strong engine. starts up immediately though

 

BTW found a nice set of turbine wheels at the wreckers. are they aluminum or steel?? didnt really check

I picked up a set of XJ LIMITED wheels a while back.

I had them sand blasted and I sprayed them with DUPLICOLOR WHEEL PAINT.

They came out great!!

BTW, Turbine wheels are also called Jeep ten spokes.

I'm grabbing a set of XJ Limited wheels and snadblasting them, then some black Rustoleum too. I wanna get Turbines or TenSpokes but for $125 for the turbines and free XJ lim's* Ill go with the XJ limeteds.

 

*with 2 free XJ's (both 87's one AW4 one 5pd, both 4x4, both I6, both pwr window and ones a 2dr ones a 4dr. All my 4x4-swap, pwr window swap, and nice rim swaps. The 2dr is all caved in, but the 4dr is good. I'm bastardizing the 2dr for spring shakles and everything for the 4dr, then creating a biig bastard 4x4, free of charge

Man I can't tell you how many sets of turbine and snowflake rims I have thrown out, or turned in for scrap. Maybe I need to start selling them on this site :eek:

 

 

Same here. Other than nobody would buy 'em with my 'pick-up only' policy.

 

 

 

I actually gave my buddy a set of turbines to hold down the tarps in his backyard (he stores engines under them).
