it gives WAY more flex when your rock crawling, i just need longer shocks and a body lift then im gonna put it on 38x14.50x15 SSR's
1/4 eleptical spring pack is only half a leaf spring basically
heres a link
does anyone know the PN(napa preferd) for valve cover gaskets for the engine?
this should be the NAPA # NGAVS38303
might as well try to see how much new valve covers are running anyone have a PN on that and what type of silicon should i use on the valve cover gasket?
He doesn't have shackle hangers on the rear...he has a piece of leaf from the frame to the shackle then shackle to the leaf spring pack...3/4
okkk I see it now, I was just wondering when he said 1/4 elip, and then there was a complete leaf there. sorry for the Hijack tone
Welcome from Huntsville Al! Great looking jeep! If I did not misread, you said 4:56 gears? That would cut into the ole top speed I would imagine. Aside of tune up that the other guys mentioned.
Sent you a PM. I am in Dallas GA.
Just a thought here run it once with out the air filter and see if that helps.
And welcome from middle TN.
this is a stupid question but what all do i need to do to do a tune up besides change the plugs? bc i got some plugs today from napa i forgot what PN they are..... i think the guy said it was a .045 gap let me know if this is right and sorry for a stupid question!
Tone: You need plugs (gap .040), dist cap, rotor. The cap and rotor may be OK but it ti's over 2 years old, get new ones. Also check your wires.
Jim, I thought the FSM calls for .035 gap, not .040. My newly bought Bosch Platinum were pre-gapped to .040, and I had to bang 'em to .035. But maybe that's because of my FAT fingers. Just seeking clarification.
After sitting for a year, the carb rebuild is probably what you need. I will be rebuilding a dauntless in the not too near future and was looking at the AZ rebuild kit for it myself. The carb will be rebuilt as well. At least your's is running. Mine is back together just to see if pieces are missing. At least it looks like an engine.
Hippo: You are correct, sir. BUT with the HEI you can easilly run a .040 gap (more juice there) . This gives you a larger spark at low engine speeds. The Bosch platinums hardly wear their gap at all, so you don't need to worry about it getting larger as time goes by. Some use a .045 gap. This of OK but a bit on the large size and I really don't think anything more would be gained past .040. This would be especially true of you are using non-platinum plugs. In a years time, you would probably have a .050 gap--not good.
Remember, Tone has HEI, you don't. HEI=more juice & larger gap. Non-HEI=less juice & standard gap.
And no, FAT fingers would not affect this; just a FAT plug guage! R)
i got some plugs from napa but they look old as crap ill take pics of them tomorrow there down in my XJ but before i gap them and install them i wanna know what you guys think about them if they look crappy then ill return them and get whatever someone recomends, that boch platinum sounds good! - oh yea the brand of the plug is AC..... if that means anything except old.
Anthony: The correct plugs are:
AC--AC44S or R44S
BTW, AC means AC Delco--GM product.
ahh... that didn't sell over on southern jeeps? i'm in the smyrna area if you want to get together sometime. as for the carb rebuild, be ready with the tag off of it. every friggin napa i've gone to wouldn't sell me the kit without the tag, but pep-boys will oreder me one no questions asked...
