Well don't I feel like an idiot... I had to replace a blown fuse on the weekend and thought I would compare all the fuses in the foot well with the manual in the car... There were fuses in the 'open' spots according to the manual in the car, so I took them out. Guess what? Fuse #10 is supposedly 'open' but actually controls reverse lights and aux fan. Put a 15a fuse back in there and bingo, shit works again. Going to double check the FSM for 97 and 99 tonight as mine is a 98 model and make sure the rest are right... Good one Jeep!

Turned out to be the wheel cylinders & not the axle seal. The shoes are all but worn out. Went shopping, got shoes for $45 & new cups for cylinders 4 for $8. I am happy with that.
Do them tomorrow if its not raining.
will post part details on the diesel XJ parts thread.
All done.
I have a full peddle again & it stops in a straight line.

Drove it

Just shy of 1000km melb-nyah west-laps of the murray-melb Average 16l/100 towing the camper of roughly 1.5t packed, with a bit of low range work to launch the boat and exploring.

Am no very happy with going for the XJ, need to refine mine a bit more, but over-all comfy cockpit/ergonomics. It's just big enough inside, now have several more dumb questions over the coming weeks as I work through my list of stuff

don't you love the box's arriving but it can lead to time spent under the heep swearing and cussing trying to get bolts to line up with holes and make sense of the instructions
all good fun

X2 on the gerni. Hung mine over the fence and sprayed it, cause it was out as part of another project, was gob smacked at the crap that came out, did not even look that bad, 15 yrs old and used for sure but not filthy.

My XJ just tipped over 200k on the clock, and she's springing leaks like a sieve!

Hopefully just the plug leaking?


Something in Engine Bay - though all levels appear to be good. Looks a bit like it's coming from the hose connection at the back of the head there. Haven't had a chance to have a good look yet.
