lost rear drive shaft

About a month ago I asked for help, could not get the front wheel drive to work after the rear drive shaft tore off while towing.

Well here's a update . Had to remove the rear yoke, and clean out the sheared off bolts. had to buy rear drive shaft from salvage. $89.95. Two new U-joints. $23. I thought the drive shaft was too short because of the lift kit that was installed before I got the 91 Wrangler. I was right because when the drive shaft tore lose it dammaged the rear T\Case housing. Half of the bushing shim inside the Housing was really chewed up. New Housing cost $37. Oil seal $7. Drive shaft had to be extended by inch and a half. $95. The slip yoke from the salvage yard was all rusted out and would not slide on to the shaft coming out of the T\Case. New slip Yoke. $45.
When the Shaft tore lose it damaged the Muffler. New Muffled and pipe $126. And I still can't get the front drive to work. Valcume hose from the transfer case to fire wall ends with a bolt plugged into It. So no vacume to operate the front shift box.
Where dose this vacume hose go after the fire wall ? This part is missing.

Like the man says Iam up to my eyeballs in jeep but I love it.

Glad you are enjoying this I thought that amerijeep put some schematics on your last post that traced all the vacuum lines for your front axle.

Dose the 91 wrangler have a electric full pump?

Is this pump inside the fuel tank?

All I can tell you, from the folks I know that have YJ's, is that they usually get the manual control device for the axle actuator. It would seem that the vacuum system is prone to failure. Quadratec, and I am sure others, have these cable operated devices for sale. I have a YJ tub, the rest has all been replaced by non stock components. Sorry I am not of more help to you.

As far as the fuel pump, yes, I believe that is in the fuel tank. If not, I am sure one of the YJ owners will correct me.

The front wheel drive thing is on the back burner , for awhile.
I need to get the jeep runing first and then play with that, A new thing has popped up where the jeep wont start, I think because of old gas in the tank.

Got to go too eat its labor day now.

Thats a good Idea, Thanks.

Have you ever tried to check the fuel pump by
unplugging fuel line at the engine to see if there is still gas.

Is it the harness hose (plastic tubing with multiple colors)? Or is it a regular black vac. Hose?
