Re: Going Through a Beater XJ 4.0.

Been dying to get the radiator back together. Gaskets from a CA vendor both times don't match the original. So more searching. Backup plan is to re-use the original gasket with 500 degree silicone to seal it all up.

New water pump, thermostat with bleed port, and thermostat housing with petcock valve are now installed.

Once this beater is assembled and running again, testing for overheating and driveability will make the jeep ready for engine teardown to locate the source of the engine noise.
