Replace rear drums and break shoes YJ
It was challenging
I learned the on the shoe adjustable, the rear driver side was reversed thread and the passenger side is regular thread.
You need to keep an eye on that.
The whole thing can be a puzzle if you didnít take photos.

Good job getting the front and rear shoes on the correct side. Lots of guys look over this.

Another trick, besides taking pictures, is to pull both drums but only work on the brake hardware of one side at a time. This way if you have any questions on how things go back together you can always reference the other side. Not a small undertaking, if this was your first time great job!

That is what I do every time. Nice to have the reference, even if it is a mirror image.

After fighting with the Scrambler for a week, I got it running again. I suspect the timing chain jumped a tooth or so. Found the compression stroke and set it all up and noticed that the timing mark was off a bit to the advanced side. So I am sure something is wrong and it will happen again. But for now it runs and will get me to the commuter lot. Maybe the chain is stretched. Will look i to that another day.

And new day,new problems. Even though I was getting the Jeep started, i think the timing chain is still off a tooth or two and making it difficult to start. Well, as a result, I went on a test drive and came back home. Turned it off and went to turn it over again. The starter literally blew into pieces. It also chewed off a few teeth on the flywheel. So it is down for a while. A lot of work is needed now. Craptastic. Sigh.

Replaced the foam upper rear bump stop that broke off last weekend during the lift install
Changed gear oil in front and rear axles
Replaced rusty locking long nuts
Upgraded fog lights to the 05-06 versions
Replaced a JKU rear bumper for a friend

I humbly thank you again. And I knew that jku could do it.

The only thing about a Yj that's reliable is its mechanic.

Joey to Mike- That's more like it! Never done.....just outta money at the moment.

atjeep-Every time a YJ passes inspection, an angel gets it's wings.

While greasing the front end I figured out why my Jeep has been rolling in the corners... need to go buy a few of those pins now.

I hope it was dirt cheap to merit messing with a 4.0.

You are the first to say anything not so nice about the swap. And yes, I thought it was priced well enough. I will need to get a wiring harness though.
