WranglerMangler Posted January 18 Share Posted January 18 Woke up Sunday, Checked Facebook Marketplace and found a Jeep Comanche “2 for 1 sale”. Right up my Alley! Hit the guy up, was at his house and had a deal worked out within an hour. This is the one of those 2 Comanches. The ‘92fer. 1992, SWB, 4x4, 4.0, AX15, 231J, D30/35, Gray interior, bench seat, slider rear window, 225,xxx on the full dash. The Previous Owner claimed it “has a brand new engine in it” upon further inspection once home, I believe it is indeed a “new” engine. It has a brand new oil pan installed on it, in the places I’ve dusted off the block, I’m finding brand new black paint. Haven’t broken out the pressure washer and super clean yet, but everything I’m seeing is saying the engine has recently been tampered with. No obvious oil leaks except the Oil filter adapter. Feel like it was long blocked and they threw on the oil filter adapter without new O rings. Previous owner claimed the fuel pump is Inoperable. Hooked up a known good battery, and cranked on the ignition switch, she cranks but won’t fire. Dumped some gas straight down the Throttle body and it actually popped and came to life for a split second. Did this a few times and it actually seems to want to run. Just not getting fuel. Swapped the starter relay with the fuel pump relay, both operate the starter so I assume that means the fuel pump relay is good. Checked the ground wire behind the taillight, cleaned down to bare metal, added Cruiser54s extra wire to frame. Still no fuel. But air pressure in the fuel rail when I depressed the Schrader valve on the rail to relieve fuel pressure. More to come. Will post pictures tomorrow Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
