Chit-Chat / Re: 4x4 friendly car washes in the NW
« Last post by WillJeep on September 22, 2017, 06:24:25 PM »
Welcome to the NW at 10-15 dollars a wash in a carwash I bought a pressure washer  it took less than 2 years to pay for itself.
I use some screen panels rolled from a old gazebo to catch the mud on my driveway and can shovel up 2 -5 gallons of slop

For future jobs where you have to take the track bar off, I always put a tie strap on tight before I take it apart.

Good call.  thanks again!

The water pump will always turn in the same direction no matter what pump you put it, unless you somewhow drastically change the belt routing.

What you are looking for is the sweep of the vane on the pump. If the pumps are different then the impellers should be mirror image.

From the quick research I just did a Vbelt engine should be counter clockwise and look like on the right and a serpentine belt engine is clockwise and looks like on the left. Note the "R" stamped into the impeller.


Do you have a t-stat with an air bleed hole and is it installed at 12 o'clock? The 258/4.0 is notoriously bad for getting air locks. I remove the heater hose line off of the front of the engine to allow air to escape while filling rad. When it starts to dribble out I fill whatever ever end didn't flow coolant till its full then jam the hose back on and finish filling. Sometimes having the front end raised helps too(up on ramps). A flushing T installed in the heater hose line makes it really easy.

What? Did yours finally rust out sitting in the garage?

If I find one, I'll paint it pink for you.

Try a big ratchet strap to the frame and axle to suck it into place.

Yep that did it. Took two straps but I was able to MacGyver it in the correct way. And the wheels appear to be properly spaced too.

Thanks
