Thursday last week I flew to Victoria to pick up a 1994 jeep xj I bought of ebay. 193000 klm, and hadn't been run for 15 months and is on dual fuel. 1994 has the non air bag steering wheel, so cool. How was the drive? pissing down rain, flooded hume hwy, lots off back streets and the xj didn't miss a beat. Gelong to blue mountains 1058klms in one drive, the cars good.

swapped A/C compressors & lines, my write-off had good A/C

the replacement vehicle has a suspected leaking compressor, and dodgy lines, wont hold gas

off to the A/C gas guy on 4/1/19

did the job on Xmas, promised the Mrs only hand tools, and no cussing

I also previously pulled the spring, obtained a new centre pin to replace the sheared off one, drove the write-off to get de-gassed as a test drive

oh..after using a sledgehammer to knock out a big dent in the wheel, re-bead tyre, holds air fine

Fitted new CPS unit with usual minor scrapes and cuts to hand and knuckles.

Ordered 1.30 pm yesterday and in my hand in Hobart before 12:00 today, from Brisbane via Skytrack. If only Australia Post were that good.

I think you will find Skytrack is owned by Auspost ! Its their premium courier service.

I took my XJ on a 300km round trip in mid 40 degree C, weather. It did not like standing at idle with the temperature gauge peaking at 110 deg C, and remaining on 100 deg C at a sustained 100kph speed. Yes, the cooling fan was on... and I use the Penrite 8 Year Coolant (pink stuff). The cast iron 4.0L engine loves to run hot on summer days and probably added to the heat in NSW today. The temp gauge is usually running between 95 - 105 degrees. Still on the factory water pump after 23 years but on the fourth 4 Mopar Copper plastic Radiator. The two copper brass Adrads that I tried several years ago failed after 2 months and 4 months respectively (in the cooler months of the year). But that was another thread....
