    Re: Recommended FRS & GMRS radios

    It's hard to tell what the element lengths are in fractional wavelengths from the information they provide, but it is pretty clear that is a colinear antenna. They achieve greater gain by...

    Re: Recommended FRS & GMRS radios

    I'm using this Laird: https://www.theantennafarm.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=191_192_196_215&products_id=3235

    Its cut to tune. I'm cut for 70cm, but it claims it should...

    Re: Recommended FRS & GMRS radios

    If range is a deciding factor it would be best to avoid one of those stubby antennas sold in the midland kits. A good antenna mounted as high as you can get it would be a better bang for the buck...

    Re: Recommended FRS & GMRS radios

    I've used the Cobra 75WXST as well with everything in the handset. Mounting it in the confined space of the jeep was easy... more options to tuck the "body" out of sight and hang the handset in easy...

    Re: Magneto

    I suspect you're right when designing a car for maximum range under typical driving conditions there probably is a sweet spot for motor RPM. I think when trying to eke out every last bit of energy...

    Re: Magneto

    That's interesting. Folks have been bolting electric motors onto manual transmission bell-housings for awhile now. If anything it's one of the easiest and simplest ways to convert an older vehicle...

    Jeep 4.0 Cracked Manifold

    This winter I need to do something about my cracked exhaust manifold on my 99 TJ. I cant quite get eyes on the crack, but listening around with a hose i'm pretty sure its the manifold.

    I'm...
  9. Re: Airing up w/On board air - what are you using?

    On the Jeep and Xterra I use a portable compressor sitting on the winch or on the top of the grille. I put together a little manifold with a ball valve, a schrader valve and a couple of quick...

    Re: Regear advice - shop recommendations?

    I like the front and rear trutracs in my van, but it's my opinion that you can get a little more out of that kind of a setup with an automatic transmission than a manual. With an automatic it's...

    Re: 1977 J10 Honcho "Magnum"

    This sounds a lot like EMI. Maybe the throttle body assembly and air-cleaner formed a resonant circuit excited by RF from the ignition system. Injectors can be pretty noisy too. I kinda wonder if...
  13. Re: Recirculation Door Actuator. 2012 JK Wrangler

    Sounds electrically actuated... like there is a little motor in there with a stripped plastic gear. Do you have a shop manual with wiring diagrams? If so maybe trace the circuit and cut a wire in a...

    Been doing some more reading. Maybe this is all common knowledge for some, but I found it interesting and I hope others will too.

    I am under the impression that the thing to look out for with yellow metal in transmissions is using a lubricant containing sulfur compounds. Its the sulfur that is not compatible with yellow metals...

    Re: I (also) bought a TJ

    If its like my 1999 then the ECU may make the oil pressure gauge indicate zero to bring your attention to it even though the code indicates that a reading is too high. I once had my alternator...

    Re: I (also) bought a TJ

    The gauge diagnostic tests the function of the gauge in the instrument cluster. There could still be a fault with the pressure sensor or the wiring.
