Questions from after a wheeling trip.

Ok, I had a great time at this last get together in Florida. My zook is now running very well (the choke was forced open with a stick (hahahah). Idle is great, power is there, whawhoo!!, Can I remove the choke plate?). The oil in the x-fer case is milky. Yes I know that is water, I am changing the oil this evening. Is the breather on the x-fer case and x-mission hard to adapt to an air breathing system? Also.... heheh, should I install a high flow cat converter (I can get one reaaal cheap, fer the enviroment!), thinking on installing a flowmaster exhaust (wingnut @ the trip had one and it sounded really good! 2" all the way back..). There was lots of deep water (snorkle time?), exhaust comming up inside the cab (exhaust pipe exits infront of the rear tire with a down spout on it).
I did run the 100 miles home on the x-fer case white gear oil (doooh!, did not have any to replace. No noise, excessive heat, weird things, worked great. Good'ole sybthetic!).
Looking fer options on:
removing the choke plate
exhaust muffler, pipe, cat, exit point and direction
x-fer case and x-mission breathers
and a snorkle.
l8r thanx..
I'll also have pictures on my web side come wendesday or so..

Re: Questions from after a wheeling trip.

1. Breathers-There is an article about relocating these on the Izook web site

2. Exaust pipe- I run a 2" no cat at all, with about a 18" cherry bomb exaust kinda loud but sounds cool. If you have the exaust shop make it come out behind the tire with a sharp bend to the outside you won't smell the fumes.

3. Choke Plate- My father and law wired his open, just made it really hard to start in the cold mornings, ran fine once it got going though.

Hope I could help

If you haven't got lines on your differential breathers check for water there too.

Re: Questions from after a wheeling trip.

Breathers are easy to install. I ran mine up into the engine compartment and added a small filter for the intake.
Someday, you may want the choke, so don't remove the plate - get one of those generic manual choke cable kits. I've done that on all my Jeeps. My Sami has the water choke thing, that works fine for now, but when it goes, I'm going to go manual.
Oh, and flush that milky stuff out! [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/shocked.gif[/img][img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Re: Questions from after a wheeling trip.

I have a mello tone muffler and it sounds just like a flow master. In fact they are very simular in everyway. Bradzuki can get them for about half the cost of a flow master. They also have single chamber rasing mufflers at a great price.
