I guess you worked on the oil pump after the oil pressure loss and it did not fix it?

Hi,

An update on the project:

I ordered the Draw tite 75041 for the above Grand Cherokee online, since it was relatively cheap ($127) and I did not find the right OEM version for the Grand...

Seat belts in a 72 Wagoneer

Hi,

I found all four holes for the shoulder belts in the roof of my "new" 1972, and 140 inch auto belts fit fine. The one for the front seats are more 3.5 (rather than 3.75) inches forward of the...

Well, this would confirm the old rule "first look at whatever you messed with last". If shop #1 did not toast the engine by driving without oil, this would be a cheap solution, too.... Hope dies...

Thanks for the input! I "like" the harmonic balancer seal idea, the oil seemed to come from that area, more behind the timing cover. Maybe I am just cheap... I did not have the engine running long...

Hi,

My Jeep surprised me the other day with super-high oil pressures, 80 PSI. She normally does 50 driving, 10-20 idle.

The roof rack would be in the way of the wind that passes over my Wagoneer at 80 mph on the freeway.. It is a bit bulky to store, too. And you need to lift your stuff up there. That's why I am...
