Re: 258 Engine Noise
Excuse me Jim, but real jeeps DO have AC Compressors...but we use them to air up our tires and run our lockers...(no flame, just ragging on ya bro).
I have had rotten luck with fan belt. Every new one I bought makes noise. You can elimanate it by using a bar of soap and letting it rub against the belt while running for a couple of seconds. If the sound goes away, its the belt. If not, then keep looking.
I fixed one noise on mine that was caused by the trasfer case shifter. There is a rubber grommet on the shifter that keeps is from rattling like hell. You can tell if that is it by putting your hand on it when your getting the noise.
How many miles on the engine?
84CJ7, 3"lift, 32"BFG, 4.10's, R/ARB, F/Detroit, Onboard Air....89 Cherokee - New Project
They say we learn by our mistakes.....I guess thats why we are all so smart.
