Power Steering Pump


Alternator

Fun sized Checked/re-did numerous connections trying to figure out why she wouldn't start the other day. Replaced starter wiring, new battery leads, oil/filter change. Installed tailpipe hanger and painted the entire tailpipe black with hi-temp spray paint.

Yesterday I got the quarter windows and vented installed in the hardtop. Need to re-do weatherstrip and then it'll be ready to go on the YJ....even if I'm not ready for hardtop weather.

twister4399 Put the hard top back on .

WrangledMike Put the new fuel pump in and mounted the tank and fired up my jeep for the first time. Runs rough so still have plenty of work to do

Axton Got a 3/8" thick custom cut plate then mounted the ENGO e9000 winch onto it, then welded the plate onto the bumper. Needed a place to mount my roller bearing for the cable so I cut up two 3/16" thick angle steel then welded it onto my bumper. I think it turned out great.

Now I have to decide between making a bracket to hold the solenoid box above the winch since its too tight or to mount it under hood.

TigWizard Since I took the tip off my thumb yesterday, I won't be doing much. Maybe I can bribe my neighbor with a case of beer to change out my slip yoke and universals?

RawhideClab ^yeah. First one had a faulty voltage regulator and would spike for a couple of seconds then be fine for a few minutes then spike fine spike fine. So warranted that one and the second one charged for not even 5 minutes and died. I think I am gonna save up for a mean green one.

toddster8 ^ Dunno... the one that was already on the Jeep? It seems to be sized specifically to fit on the Jeep frame and bumper. The bolt holes all lined up, however, the bolts that came with the new winch were not long enough to go through the plate and the bumper. Had to use the old ones (barring a trip to town to buy more.) Also the fairlead is wider than the old one and since the plate wasn't quite flush with the bumper, it required some spacers.

Gotta go to the boat and borrow a big-ass circuit breaker to test it with. If it works, I'll mount the old one on my equipment trailer. Speaking of circuit breakers, the goofy one that came with the new winch doesn't fit any way any how in my engine compartment. (The old one was installed without any kind of circuit protection at all !) I sent away for an appropriately-sized fuse holder and ANL fuse. But now I'm thinking maybe I'd better get a Blue Sea circuit breaker. I can just imagine being stuck out in the snow and popping my one fuse... BTW, the Blue Sea battery-terminal fuses are pretty slick - I have those on the boat, but WAY expensive.
what winch plate did you use?

Beach-Bum [QUOTE="Monster93;13300186"] Are the headlights available with the inside black instead of chrome?[/QUOTE


Unfortunately no. I would prefer it that way as well.

YJ_JEEP Just dropped my engine block off at the local machine shop. It's getting checked and cleaned. Should get it back in a few days. Got my head looked at along with a valve job done, about a week ago. Taking the block apart was pretty easy. But I will be nervous until I get it back together and it starts and runs good.

I used relays in mine just in case but I'd rather have it and not need it then need it and not have it.
