Not something I did, but something that happened today.. Sitting at a stop light, some tool in a corvette pulls up next to me.. Revs his engine a bunch of times as he glances UP at me.. I had to laugh. Thinking to myself, "yeah, yours can haul ass, but good luck this winter when it shows 12 inches and you get stuck in your driveway"

I don't think the engine rev was so much a challenge to race as to try to make me jealous of his sports car.. I had visions of driving over it, grave digger style. I wasn't jealous in the slightest

Took out my transfer case that I broke in half by hitting a ditch at 50km/h on a snowy logging road. also took off the bent up leaf spring that got messed up during the crash as well. Tomorrow I will continue to put in the new leafs and hopefully find myself a transfer case from the scrap yard.
Surprisingly, no other damage done besides the leafs and t-case. Good ol' jeeps.

BAP just took care of my stock shackle problems they just didn't move right. Put in some 1" lift booms all around and yeah like a Caddy what a difference. Will be checking them out this weekend in the Spring Mountains on aa trail called Rocky Gap. Snow above 5K feet so should be fun and a little of a challenge. looking forward to getting out this weekend. Then a long Christmas break time for maintenance while I am home nothing really interesting T-Case leak on the cover and still chasing an oil leak on the valve cover. Door need to be finshed up and put the panels on and of course the normal odd and ends.

Need some tech help...

Hey brains... need some help.

Got a line on a low mileage, strong 1994 YJ engine to put into my 1990. (before anyone says anything, I don't want a V8)

I am picking up the engine, engine wire harness, and an ECU for $800.

I need this to get the YJ registered in CA as I've stripped all the emissions crap off it when I moved back to Michigan...then regret doing that when I moved back out to CA.

My question is about compatibility. I have an automatic tranny, and the donor rig is a stick. Will they mate up & will I need a new flywheel? Remember I have the 1990 & the donor is a 1994.

I'm planning on a custom dash (which I'll feature here when I get it going). But my biggest concern is getting the new engine into the rig & make it go. I'll sort out the dash & speedo, etc after I get it home.

Anyone have any experience with this swap? I've Googled it a few times and I can't seem to get a straight answer on this.

Everything should be good as you describe but you do need the flywheel for an automatic. If the engine is all in tact and get harness and ECU you should not have too much difficulty to get running and pass CA Emissions. Sounds like a good deal.

I'm assuming I need the flywheel for the speed sensor right?

No, the flywheels for an auto and a standard are very different and will not match for what you are going to do.

But can I just use the flywheel (flexplate) from my current engine on the new engine? I didn't think I could just swap them over because of a sensor.

I'm sorry I didn't make that clear earlier. I do understand the difference between a flywheel and flexplate. I mis-spoke.

**edit** I'm trying to research flexplates for the 1994 w/auto transmission. But I keep getting info on the 2.5L engine. It's somewhat frustrating. I have an email in to Advance Adapters for some tech help. But if anyone knows the answer please chime in.

Sorry don't know the differences between the years for the flexplates. I am thinking you could but??? No problems mis-speaking USMC, I have been known to do the same thing!

Now a question for you, you are in the service right? If yes then can't you keep your registration in Michigan?? I see guys here at China Lake do it all the time. Or did you move here??

I retired a few years ago. Michigan has...um...zero jobs for my skill set. I moved back out here after being offered work. You are correct though, if I were still active duty I could keep it registered in Michigan. However, under policies only a few years old, I would still have to pass Kalifornia smog tests to get it registered on base & get my decal.

OK got it, thanks! And sorry for the troubles getting it tagged in this state, sometimes CA sucks!

Other times it's a great place to be!

I thought about olive, or dark green.. I'm glad I went with black. I can't believe how much better it looks (in my opinion)..

I was told several times not to do my own paint work, because it would turn out streaky, and look like crap.. I have to say that for a hillbilly with a rattle can, I'm pleasantly surprised with how it turns out. Look forward to seeing yours

I put a realy nice rattle can black on my old 94 f150, al long as you prep correctly you can make it look pretty damn good. The only problem with the ford was I put semi gloss black and after a year it faded. With the matte i doubt you would have that problem...hehe

Yes, I agree.. The prep is what takes the most time. It took me about two and a half hours to prep, and about an hour and 15 minutes to paint. And I didn't have to paint the entire thing, since I had already painted the doors, fenders, and hood.. I'm pleased with it

Sand it down, primer it, and spray away.. You wouldn't have any problems painting over the white. What color are you thinking?
