What is the sound of one piston slapping?
What is the sound of one piston slapping?

Thanks for letting me have a place to post about my dumb stuff.

This stuff includes: my 1985 Jeep Cherokee with the Renault 2.1td engine, my Mitsubishi Diesel-swapped 91 Mazda B2600i 4x4, my wife’s 98 Cherokee, our 1986 E350 Camping Bus(nicknamed SquatchBus) my 1972 Harbor Freight-swapped Simplicity 4040 garden tractor, or my hand-built tube amplifiers I build from recycled pieces.

Ill post some pics of my Jeep now. I got it 5 years ago and it sat in my field untilb 2 years ago. I discovered my uncle put the timing belt on wrong so I fixed that, and it started. The wife and I ripped out the carpet and put down molded rubber flooring, and I pulled out and ‘glassed the headliner before covering in speaker felt carpet and reinstalling. It had 135k on it when I started driving it and just turned 155k. It’s been repainted, and is basically a glorified junkbox. It’s rare. But its also my daily. Also the Turbo Diesel emblem on the back came from the donor Dodge Ram 50 that’s engine went into my Mazda. The only issue I’ve had in the jeep is somehow the cooling fan broke off and went into my radiator. No new radiators available, so we farmer fixed it by crimping off and soldering the damaged tubes. New electric fan and it’s golden. 22mpg.
