That is good info for me living in Texas, where AC is king and heaters are for warming up the air for the defroster.

Yes, you're gonna want a aux fan on the condensor. I think I sent you the information on the one I bought.

Maybe 2 smaller ones, even.

I was very happy that it I put that one on, and it makes a real difference.

I had a similar experiance with my AC shop when I got my system charged in July. I still run the mechanical fan but the pusher I mounted to the front of the condenser really helps at low speed and idling.

I took the Cherokee to run some errands across town, and to get my annual 2 bushels of green chiles. I've gone 40 miles, and am heading up north on Sante Fe, which is a highway with stoplights.

I'm going 50mph, and then my radio cuts out, dead. And my exciter wire/alternator discharge light lights dimly. WTH? I decide to take it home, so I pull off and make a u-turn on a side street.

I'm going south on Sante Fe, everything seems fine, then it does it again. I decide I better get off the 6 lane highway, and get on a 4 lane road, which is still very busy.

Then, my voltmeter starts pegging at 14+ volts and flickers quickly, and my idiot light goes bright. This I don't understand, because it's opposite of what should happen….I think. I don't have a stock charging system, and I'm going thru my head how to troubleshoot this mess.

I heading along, and the engine dies. Volts drop to the bottom of the gauge. I put it in N and I'm looking for a place to pull over and there's a parking lot just ahead on the right. (oh, please, please, PLEASE!…..) and I have just enough momentum to pull into the parking lot. Thank you God for getting me out of traffic.

Dead. No juice at all. I pop the hook expecting smoke from something, and…..

The positive battery cable is off the post.

I've kept them loose while doing different things, and never tightened them.

Whew. Put it back on, head back for my green chiles.

Gack!

Oh, well. We've all done that kind of thing. You got off pretty easy that time.

High quality junk here: intro thread and slow build thread

Did you know? Willys is just Willis spelled differently, but pronounced the same. Neither Willy nor his apostrophe are involved.

Well, I do not like the end of the story, well I do, the Cherokee is in good shape, but I still have no idea of what you are talking about as to the green chilies.

WV / KY have no such food reference.

First off, I would like to say Great Job on this! I was just wondering how that interior vinyl paint has held up over time. If it has held up well I would also like to know the brand name and approx cost. Thanks!

It is cheap enough and wears exceptionally well, if correct prep and application procedures are followed.

It's SEM Color Coat, and I'm real happy with it so far. I haven't really put it thru the wringer as far as testing it, but it still looks great. It's well worth trying, it can make anything look new.

Prep, prep, prep. Wash anything you are going to color with TSP, then again, rinse thoroughly, and use the SEM vinyl plastic prep spray.

There are other brands, like Duplicator, but I'd stick with the SEM.

this is the OEM look



EDIT: the walker 35819 is the hanger for the position above the rear axle
