While I had my engine out, I decided to upgrade the cooling system. I have always had trouble with the pressure bottle and getting the cap to seal. I had already ordered a new cap when I decided to make the change.
Mounting a 136 Amp alternator where the AC compressor used to be on my Renix Jeep XJ.
Since I don’t have AC on my off road Jeep, I decided to try to relocate the alternator to the area normally used by the compressor. I looked into making brackets, but I found they were readily available on Ebay.
Replcing the power steering pump on my 1991 Jeep cherokee
I have been noticing some intermittent drop out of power assist on my Cherokee for a few weeks now. I tried overfilling the reservoir in case there was an air bubble. That lasted for a while, but today the power assist was dropping out at some very inopportune times. So, since I had a new pump on the shelf I decided to change it out.
Since I don’t have an air box, I did not have to remove it. I did remove the electric fan just to get a little better access.
