Hey guys I know im new here but im looking for some help. I bought a 88 cherokee from a buddy of mine Jim (aka fourxfourplay). the engine was in the process of being pulled to do a rear main seal, but was put on hold. Now I have the xj and can not figure out the wiring in the engine bay. almost every thing else is conected but that. What Im looking for is some one that has knowlage of this engine and could help me put all the wiring back together. Now befor your ask Im not looking for some one to do all the work just some one to point and show me. beer and pizza will be supplyed.

p.s. im in maple ridge.

I'm no help with wiring, but if you need something to look at, I have a 90 you are welcome to follow the wires around. I couldn't do it till next week though.

All you have to do to change the rear main seal is pull the pan. It's a 2 piece

Who pulls the engine to do the rear main? It would be a lot easier I guess, other than the having to pull the engine part...



Anyways, I'd suggest getting a FSM. They're getting a little hard to find, but are still out there. Ask around, maybe one of the coast guys has the electrical one that you can borrow. It's fairly straight-foreward with it.


Unless you put it together and it doesn't work. Then you have to trouble shoot renix electronics. Ugh.
