General Maintenance: cleaned up my TB, intake & sensors.. yuck

 

63mm of fury.. lucky for me the gasket stayed in 1 piece


intake wasn’t too bad but there was thick dark brown goo around the inside rim


Didn’t get as lucky with the iac housing gasket.. ripped it at the corner. No one sells them so I superglued it back together & got busy cleaning all the sensors 

dirty dirty

Found my Jeep’s firing order after all these years

 

Clean enough


wash rinse repeat

 

 

Not to be a "Debbie Downer", but by far, the bulk of the dirt/gunk buildup that you found inside the intake is the result of poor filtration.  From the tests I ran on a variety of filter types over the years, the OEM paper filter is FAR superior to that chunk of oil-soaked gauze...   YMMV...

you NEED this in your life: http://www.axialracing.com/products/ax90047

 

you can get a new clear body for it and paint it to match your real one exactly!

 

it's got long arms, reservoir shocks, and no roof-rack - just like yours. even the rock rails and front bumper look a lot like yours - just missing your custom rear bumper! i bet you could trim its plastic fender flares down too.

 

 

Cool..do I gotta put it together?

it's RTR (ready to run), so it's all built but you'd still need a battery and charger. i could lookup what would work for those if you're really interested in getting one.

Scott,

Here is a WIX number for a cellulose (paper) filter that is similar in size to the Gause units such as yours...   WIX filter Part Number:  WA9763

I suspect that if you go here https://www.wixfilters.com/Lookup/FilterBySize.aspx?catid=1&styleid=1 and search through the list of filters, you may find something that would work with minor, or no modifications to your current intake tubing... ;)

Hope this helps... ;)

Steve, do you have any experience with oil-free synthetic media filters such as the AEM DRYFLOW in comparison to the oil-soaked cotton style?

Kris,

I do not have any experience with this newer style filter media, as it was not "on the table" for testing/evaluatrion when I was involved in filtration testing.   I will contact some of my friends/former co-workers to see what I can find out about them...   May take me a while to find the correct person for that information, as I've been retired 16 years, and both people and materials have been under constant change since then... ;)

..did some horse trading with @Number7 for a new 2.5” manifold back Frankexhaust system & got this replacement flangeless precat pipe from Pacesetter, which are made here in Phoenix Arizona

flange on the previous Walker unit would rub against my driveshaft at full stuff you can see where the yoke made contact nearly smashing a hole in it at one point

Fun fact: took me, G & theK 3+ hours to get this 1 bolt off
