3.8 Intake Manifold Bolt Specs

Does anyone know offhand the size of the bolts between the intake manifold and the block and heads? My Chilton Manual tells me to chase the threads in the bolt holes with a tap of the correct size, but fails to mention what the correct size is.

Is it possible to order a new JK with less than the base package?

Just curious, say you planned on installing a different top so you don’t even want the factory soft top, or didn’t want a back seat or a radio or whatever. Can you order with deducts that don’t affect government safety or fuel economy or whatever requirements?

Just curious.

When to change timing belt……

I have a couple of TJs I’m looking at this weekend. A 1999 and a 2000. One has 94k and the other has 101k miles.

My question is what is the schedule for changing the timing belt? I’m assuming both of these are probably past it so I will be asking them, but wanted to know when I do. Thanks

Bottom bolt thread size for running boards.

I found the answer after a little more searching, if the mods want to delete this thread they can. If not, and in case someone else wants to know here is where I found the bolt sizes I was looking for.

Front Wiper Issue

Hello again. Last week I went for a drive and noticed that the front wipers wouldn’t work. The washer pump works fine and so I’ve read from other posts that means the motor is bad. I tested the connector just to be sure and have 12v at pin 5 or 6 (low and high) and pin 1 (fused ignition) SO, I ordered a reman and installed it today to find that the motor still wont work. I used jumpers to directly connect pin 5/6 and pin 1 to the battery on both the new and old motor and nothing happened.

I’m guessing the re-manufactured is poop by my estimations but perhaps in my newbness I’m missing something. I haven’t done a continuity test on the wiper switch because there is proper voltage at the connector.

Got Kidde? Massive fire extinguisher with a plastic handle recall: covers 1973-2017

Plastic Handle Fire Extinguishers

The recall involves 134 models of Kidde fire extinguishers manufactured between January 1, 1973 and August 15, 2017, including some models that were previously recalled in March 2009 and in February 2015. The extinguishers were sold in red, white and silver, and are either ABC- or BC-rated.

The model number is printed on the fire extinguisher label. For units produced in 2007 and beyond, the date of manufacture is a 10-digit date code printed on the side of the cylinder, near the bottom. Digits five through nine represent the day and year of manufacture in DDDYY format. Date codes for recalled models manufactured from January 2, 2012 through August 15, 2017 are 00212 through 22717. For units produced before 2007, a date code is not printed on the fire extinguisher.

Typical NOV-DEC Parts Sales?

I’m getting ready to pull the trigger on a set of bumpers, rock sliders, and a winch, but I don’t have a specific date that I HAVE to have them by. (Right now, planning on using Extreme Terrain for this purchase since they carry all the products I want).

What are the “typical” SALE times that most of the Jeep parts sites offer, like Black Friday, etc…?

Fuel Sending Unit

Can I buy a 20 gallon sending unit by itself? I will be dropping the tank to install a Holley Sniper EFI system (Chevy 350) and figured if I can get one I might as well put a new one in. I don’t need the pump, and the original stock pump has already been removed from the system.

I will run new lines from the stock sending unit to the EFI unit and a return line from the EFI to the tank. I’m guessing I can use the return line on the stock sending unit.
