  1. I have replaced the gasket around the dist shaft, not much more that a week later it is leaking again. I used a feel-pro gasket, I have always had good luck with them. This area of the engine isn't pressurized is it? Both surfaces were very clean when I put it together. Possible that the crankcase isn't venting?
  2. Yesterday, my Rinky Dink Jeep tried to kill me. The on-going saga of my efforts to resuscitate this long forgotten and abused CJ5. After a week or two spent squirting Sea Foam & JB Blaster in the cylinders I actually got it running on Saturday. I had gone through the fuel system completely, from filler hoses to the carb. Everything is either new or re-manufactured, with the exception of the hard lines which were flushed with acetone. Primed the fuel system. New cap, rotor, wires, plugs gapped. Cranked and it fired. It was apparent that the timing was way retarded, as it barely ran at idle and died with any throttle given. Figured to set the timing only to discover the distributor seized solid. "Like a rock' as the Chevy guys would say. Turns out the distributor is also sitting proud of the housing by 8-10mm. It has been sitting like that at least for 10 years, without a hood, in the So Cal Inland Empire. Hmm. Alum on Alum out where the sun and the stars shine. Not good. Anyway, tried all the usual, tapping up, down and sideways. Soaked in JB Blaster. Even the Milwaukee hot air gun. It wouldn't budge. Sat night decided to try the 50/50 Acetone & ATF Miracle cure. Wrapped a shop rag around the shaft and let it sit over night. My restless ponderings while horizontal led me to believe that I needed more heat. Bright and early Sunday AM, with a cup of joe in one hand and a propane torch in the other, I uncover said jeep and dry off the area. I didn't so much as touch the flame to the housing when it ripped off a huge bang. Blew the valve covers off the heads. That was unexpected! Proud to say didn't spill any of the precious from the cup. Neighbor at the end of the street heard the bang and looked in time to see me standing there with a smoke cloud above me. Obviously set off the internal fumes. Never in my 48 years of playing with engines has this ever happened to me. I may be a bit slow but I eventually figured out that the distributor hold down bolt is through drilled into the timing case cavity and I flashed it off, twice. Did it a second time today to a lesser degree. That is when I deduced the through drilling. Sharp as a marble one might say. Anyway.. the damn distributor is still stuck. I rigged up a small slide hammer today and tried popping it. Still nothing. NOW the question; Is it possible to remove the oil pump and drive the distributor out via the bottom??
