03-05-2009 09:37 PM
jpdocdave ya bearing is the whole hub assembly, my old ones aren't worth using, same with u joints. u joints are cheap though.
03-05-2009 09:34 PM
87YJWrangler Um Clutch, front wheel hubs (just bearing but I heard you cant buy just the bearing), Front U joints, instructions on how to go from hydraulic to mechanical clutch, brake lines and the list goes on but Im to damn broke to buy any of it
03-05-2009 09:30 PM
jpdocdave i've done it and no one responded. let me know what you need.
03-05-2009 09:29 PM
87YJWrangler I want some damn bump stops lol I'm sick of possibly smashin my oil pan again lol
03-05-2009 09:27 PM
87YJWrangler You should have a list of parts you have, so we can maybe take them off your hands
03-05-2009 09:26 PM
jpdocdave what is it with you and those bump stops. forget about them.

i'm undecided about my seats, i'll probably re use them.

i have d30 shafts i just put u joints in, and the rest of the axle waiting for scrap, as well as the non c clip d35 waitin for scrap. lots of stock engine and driveline parts from a few 4.0 and 4.2 jeeps. some 4 banger d shafts and t case main shafts.
03-05-2009 09:20 PM
87YJWrangler Um never mind lol, got anything else like a clutch or maybe a set of seats for cheap? Or stock bump stops

probably not worth the shipping. i would let them go for next to free, if you think you have a use for 22 yr old springs. can be used to make a full lengt add a leaf i guess.

03-05-2009 08:01 PM
jpdocdave 11 or 12 bolts? i have a few valve covers laying around. the bottom one is from an 87 4.2 and its aluminum. but it has 15 bolt holes like all the valve covers i have laying around.

03-05-2009 09:14 AM
wouldwerker4u I still haven`t had much luck! But I did manage to get some RTV to seal the hole as a temporary fix! Still looking for a new one!!!
02-26-2009 04:05 PM
87YJWrangler Dude check autozone or napa I get all my parts from there and they ask if its a 90 because I tell them I cant seem to get it anywhere else and they have them on hand. Or liquid gasket
02-26-2009 02:31 PM
wouldwerker4u Thanks guys , but from what Ive been told at Collins Bros. There was some kind of change up mid 1987 thru mid 1990. And just my luck I got caught in the middle of all that!
If either of you guys have one that has 11 or so bolt holes in it I would love to do buy one, especially after ordering one already that does`nt work from Collins Bros.( That one has only 7 bolt holes!) And I lost the cost of shipping when I returned it to them!
02-26-2009 12:35 PM
87YJWrangler If its the 4.2 you can use one from any 4.2 they are all the same engine as long as its the inline...
02-25-2009 07:19 PM
jpdocdave i have a 4.2 valve cover from my 87. you're welcome to it, pm me if interested.

Valve Cover Issues!!!

Okay,after cleaning all the gunk out from under the hood, I drove home (about 12 miles) and when I got home the top of the motor was covered with oil. After looking everything over I found a small piece of metal missing from the oil filler hole where the ears of the oil filler cap go into the valve cover. I used some RTV to fix the leak and started looking for a replacement valve cover. For some reason, no one makes one that will fit everything stops at 87 and starts back at 93. Mines a 1990 that came from the factory with a aluminum valve cover that has about 12 bolts around it. And an inline 4.2, if anyone has a good parts resource I would be very appreciative! I`ve tried JC Whitney, and Collins Bros. but I`m still loking!
