Re: What was done to YOUR rig(XJ/MJ) today MECHANICALY????

Had a fairly good day replacing the rear main seal and oil pump. That part was no sweat. Had a lot of trouble getting the pan off due to clearance issues with the axle and tranny being in the way. Jacking the axle up a little got me to where I could yank hard on the pan and it came out. However the pump pickup moved some when I yanked and now I'm afraid the new pickup will move again when I force the pan back in. I hope I dont have any problems but am stressing out on it right now. 2moro will tell!

Good day replacing RMS? Great attitude, I hated that job.
You should be able to jack up body, let axle droop out of the way. I'm at 4.5 lift and it slid in with ease. Don't forget to pack pump or remove diz and prime it

I am getting tired of rain water on the floors. It SUCKS dragging out the Vacuum 3 times a weeks, LOL.

Tried to find an unobtainium 14 mm nut at Home Depot today for my leaf spring swap, no joy.
