Troubleshoot Lewis' YJ
Lewis' ride up in his recently acquired YJ equipped with a Chevy
350 V8 was not un-eventful. Overheating problems and
timing issues plagued the Jeeps first road trip up here into the
mountains. Once he did make it into camp Friday evening, a
small crowd gathered around the bright red YJ and began
diagnosing a few problems.
One such problem was several
melted vacuum lines that supplied vacuum to the front Dana 35
axle. Without vacuum, he didn't have the ability to lock
the front axle for that nice 4 wheel drive feeling. We soon had
a direct connect setup for the Dana 35 axle using pieces of
vacuum line, a few vacuum Ts and some electrical tape.
