I'm not adding salt to the wound, but, you know jeep means...Just Empty Every Pocket. I owned jeeps from CJ's to TJ's from 1976-1995 and when they ran, they were great and fun. But, they would fail it seemed when you needed them the most.Thanks guys! And to top it all off, I started my Jeep this morning and a check engine light came on. Scanned it and need a evaporative selenoid.
The key to doing this maintenance is removing the motor first. I know I had the smaller version of the long tail but there are certain steps and this job isn't that bad. Looks like I am late to the show though. Your going to have to get the drive shaft out to pull the bearing. So your going to have to pull the motor anyway. Got a bit more work ahead of you.Got the shaft separated from the U Joint. What a bugger. I need to clean up the keyway a bit with a file, but it’s out and that’s all that matters at this point. Thanks for the suggestions! Oh! and there was nothing left of the bearing, only the race and it came out easily with some anger.
