92 yj build

First time jeep owner about to start the build. Cracked the fuel tank on a pipe so I just out a new to me tank in and I am in the process of putting new ujoint a in the front axle shafts. When I pulled the shaft I noticed the milk of water. Opened up the pumpkin last night and found it to be plumb full if mud. The axle has been pulled and washed out bearing retried and sitting in oil. I guess the axle was so full of mud that it couldn't dry out. The gears and bearings had minimal surface rust and cleaned up well. I am gonna slam the newly cleaned axle in and hope to be back in the road for a while. I am going to attempt a soa lift soon. Just want the rest of the jeep to be mechanically sound. So far I have replaced the water pump, radiator, fan clutch, oil pressure sending unit, and installed a cat. Getting close to being mechanically sound!

Ok well after a slow day due to working this morning. The front axle has been closed up and out back under the jeep. New axle shaft seals and ready to put it the rest of the way together! Should be rolling again tomorrow!

Zena has left the garage! Front diff is full no leaks out of the new axle seals. The passenger side brake is dragging on the front so I'm gonna have to find out why. We got a little rain today so test drive got a little muddy! More to come saving for the soa lift

I pulled the passenger side apart again. It looks like I am going to have to do the soa and the high steer soon. I have some wear where the brake pads ride which is causing the brake drag. Little clean up and some lube. All seems ok for now. Time to hit the trails!

Just took the jeep out for a drive to pick up some misc parts I found. She did well it was 54 miles round trip. I am needing some more power... Might have to look into a motor swap sooner rather than later. The little four banger just don't like the 31's on factory gearing. Took five miles to get up to speed and didn't like holding it. Also found we have a power steering leak I have to look into.

I bought some used bumpers from a buddy of mine. Front has been installed I am going to do some rework on the rear bumper yet. I have pulled the sway bar and the front trac bar off and taken for a short run around. I am liking the Improved suspension flex as well as smoother ride. I am working thru some minor engine issues but think a re-power or a re-gear might be in order. Any other ideas to pull some more muscle out of the wee 4banger?

After doing some more driving I have developed a rear main leak as well as a steering gear box shaft seal leak. It also looks like the clutch master cylinder has begun to leak as well. I guess the build will have to be put on hold while I fix some of these leaks and get my reliability back up! Gotta love taking a machine that hasn't run hard in years and put it back on the road. Everything starts leaking! I am starting to look for some parts to do some axle upgrades as well as the good ole re power!
