I retimed it to 7 for now.. Seems a bit better, but I'm suspecting a vacuum leak right now.
I found red clay dust in the manifold to brake booster hose so I cut the end and refitted with new hose clamps. It only throws the code when idling for a while ~15-20 minutes or at stoplights after I drive it a while.

Drive shaft is sorted out thankfully.

And I need to repackage the front wheel bearings and do at least one ball joint.

Ah the joys of rovering...

Missed this thread somehow....Rob glad to hear you got the UJ sorted - it's not that bad of a job. I do mine in the vice with a couple of sockets to press them out, but you can also just bash them with a hammer & sockets.

Love the new avatar !

Lav - LOL i wonder where that came from !!

BTW, Alt shipped today (went 140 amp, since i have a NL dual system waiting to install).. we can swap out at URE..

Unless someone needs a core to rebuild the Old ones a paperweight, costs as much to Buy an Action Alt, as it does to rebuild the old one.

I chickened out on the UJ, best $40 i've spent in a while.. I did get to watch and "help" so i have a clue what i'm doing next time.. with my bench vice should be doable at home. In the field your better off removing the drive shaft and heading out i think, but "Possible".

I need to promote this thing back to fun status so i can work on it without a deadline.

Update.. CEL 45
#3 lead apart in my hands right after taking this.

So the theory of why the CEL 45... #3 had a bad lead leading to it not firing and dumping fuel (hence backfire through intake), right bank goes lean to correct rich left side. Conflict as right bank leans it out to the computer max and trips cel 45 - 02 sensor is good on both sides then.

Should be good to go, idled 30 minutes no CEL

Outstanding! I'm glad you finally found the gremlin (knocking on wood).

Rob, you have been busy since the weekend! I have only had time to pressure wash the bulk of the mud off and rework the zip ties on my new extended brake lines.

Glad you figured out your CEL, and the UJ!

Yeah CEL's drive me nuts and the UJ was a buzz kill since I need to haul the kids too.
Steering is next (hopefully before next weekend) and repacking the front bearings

in case your keeping score (i know your not, but what the hell i am....)

New Solid HD track Link along with New Grease-able ball joints are in (the right hand side was shot and looked original too!)

next up is the Track Arm along with a greasable ball joint, and repacking the front bearings. Tomorrow for the track arm and monday for the re-pack (i'm farming that job out)

so... New charging system, Check...(well when the Alt shows up and i can give Lav's back, it's on the way), New steering stuff, Rear U-Joint, and a Tune Up (plugs, cap and wires) to cure the damn CEL 45 .

and I only did the F****Ing Fire roads before my Alternator started this whole thing. It was a Fun weekend though and reading the Expo BS, i'm in for next year.

I replaced my steering rods with the solid ones before MAR. In fact I did not have time to get it aligned before the trip. It was impressive how much heavier the solid rods are!

Slight delay in the the track arm install - don't have the right tool to pull the bar from the steering side..

other small stuff done however, just knocking but off the list at this point.

A strategically placed blow with a BFH should pop the rod free from the ball joint - no special tool needed .

Yes, but loosen the nut on the tie rod end a few turns first, THEN hit the side of the steering arm right at the point where the tapered rod end stub goes thru. That will pop the rod end loose.

It was the steering Arm side i was worried about, the tie rod i was just pull with the track arm.
i was probably being overly cautious about not wanting to hammer on steering arm side, but given my luck i would have made it undrivable which would suck for a DD.

Two BFH's work real well - don't have to whack it hard at all...put one up against it then hit the opposite side with the other...bingo boingo pops up!
