What did you do to your XJ today

Scored my favorite xj wheels with near new tires for $200

What did you do to your XJ today

Changed my oil and my brake rotors, pads and shoes and installed some RE extended front brake lines.

Right after I finished that, my ignition cylinder decided to crap out so I replaced it and also my starter since it had been acting up the last few months.
(I'd upload pics but it's not letting me upgrade taptalk to pro)

Instared at it and pondered the idea of unloading my camping stuff from sierra fest.

Re: What did you do to your XJ today

Realized I've got a super aggressive oil leak that I'm not looking forward to tracking down and fixing...My first guess is the oil filter adapter finally let go, but fixing that in at apartment parking won't be fun no matter what it is.

Sorry for the nighttime photo, but finished this up the other day. Ode to the WW2 generation...and it looks cool.

Re: What did you do to your XJ today

Finally replaced that oil filter adapter o-ring set, which wasn't such a big deal. Cleaned up starter brushes, and suspected bad starter is good again. Changed the oil, cleaned the air filter, lubed all the zerks, tightened up t-case shifter linkage bushing. Redoing my rear cargo area shelf to install some sound insulation on the floor and bolt things down better tomorrow.

Re: What did you do to your XJ today

Blew a rear wheel cylinder on my way home from work. No crashes.

Guess it's time for a rear disk upgrade.

Re: What did you do to your XJ today

Greenz, I just had to dig through all my invoices for my insurance company, so I have a bunch of part numbers for what I used on my 8.25 disc swap. Hit me up if any of that could be helpful to you

The C8.25 lubelocker delivered today. Have everything except for passenger side e-brake cable. I don't recall where or what to get that just fits. So that would be helpful. I did pick up a couple of cable clamps to go that route if need be.

Re: What did you do to your XJ today

What year is your rig? I think the early and late models needed different cables. I used two of these G2 cable, and it was a perfect fit for me. I was able to use the same cable on both sides with no issue, but IIRC, the late models need a different length for the passenger side. The cables I got had the correct end to work with the KJ brake shoe lever too, so no funny business needed to fit there either. They do come in different lengths too, so I think you could find one that would work for you if you need different lengths.

Mine is an 01 with about 5" lift in the rear. Thanks for the link. I remember reading on the disk swap mod a long time ago and put it off for other things. Well this came up suddenly and I just did the essential research to get up and running again. Really appreciate your help with the cables. Seems to be a lot of different opinions on what to get. This helps narrow it down.

Re: What did you do to your XJ today

Yeah, of course. The G2 site has a bunch of different length, so i just found the ones that matched as closely to what I needed, then searched for that part number. I got em from 4WheelParts cause I used to have a location like half a mile from my house, so it was easier to pick them up than wait for shipping. I'm sure you could order them anywhere using the G2 part number though.

Found my coolant recovery tank has a small leak in the bottom. When i pulled it looking for a leak i found the previous owner had sealed an old crack with RTV And that repair had failed. Ordered one from Rock Auto.
