  1. ..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

  2. Still hard start & rough idle, 250rpm or less. This old Jeep needs love


    Removed TB again replaced all intake sensors with MOPA units


    replaced o2 sensors


    then bank 2 sensor welded itself to my manifold from constant heat cycles over a decade great..

    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... ;)

    thanks ob1 I’ll measure for fitment see what I can find!

    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?

    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...


    All good Steve appreciate feedback.

    Ps u got me on YMMV fyi btw 


    Do you know if they sell conical style oem type filters?

    Issue becomes no space for factory filter box with my air compressor mount

  6. 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 C33CBAAF-6F08-454E-93B8-C8E930AB1017.thumb.jpeg.56504726c164b122b7a8c7b5bf9f0997.jpeg
