Ive notice you haven't been posting any updates. what's going on with yours? I am sure you can find something to do on it. I actually took some time to make a list of what needs done on mine last night. It will help me keep an eye on the little things. There are plenty of things that still need done.Yea funny how build threads seem to go dead lol. Mine is all but 6ft under..
Well, you got lucky I guess, because this one is far from done. Starting to get back into things so updates will be coming soon.the best part about coming in to a build thread late is you can read the whole thing without waiting for an update. But it sucks when you come to the end of the thread :happyyes:. fun looking jeep.
Yea I've lost interest in posting. I guess the new wore off. I've been chasing down coolant leaks, grounding issues and putting stuff back together but that isn't too exciting to post about.Ive notice you haven't been posting any updates. what's going on with yours?

I'm running a 5.2 out of a Grand Cherokee. My issue is in the tube itself. There doesn't appear to be any obstruction. The stick is just having trouble making the bends. I thought it was interesting that the tube runs through a guide in the pan. You can see it in the pic on the bottom.If it is condensation it will be clear water. Assuming you have antifreeze in the cooling system you should be able to tell from the color.
I ran the engine for about 10 minutes so whatever water was in there got mixed with the oil. The reason I am thinking it may be condensation is because it got cold here and down to about 40 in the shop. I put a heater under the front end because I only had water in the cooling system.
Sorry, I didn't go back to read the full thread, which engine are you using and having the dipstick issue with? I know on my SBC there was a tube pressed into the block that I originally forgot about and my dipstick did the same thing as you are describing.
