Re: Going Through a Beater XJ 4.0.

While I was down there installing a new rear main seal on the '88 4.0, I put back the torque converter bolt that was backed out about 1 turn, and torqued it to 28 ft-lbs. Rotated the engine to check the others. All 3 of the other torque converter bolts were 1/2 turn loose !!! That may explain why the knocking went from mild to severe instantly as we drove it home weeks ago. Appears to me that torque converter bolt torque should be a maintenance item.

One piston installed, 5 more to go.

Happy 2018 !!
