Sometime in the next 3 days I will be swaping out my radiator that recently sprung a leak. Anything else that I should do while I'm in there???

Here's my list:
1. Swap radiators
2. Swap out power steering pump
3. Probably new belts

I guess depends on how crazy/money you wanna go. Having the rad out makes it way easier to replace the crank seal and the oil pump cover gasket. (You can get an impact gun with a phillips bit on it to take off the oil pump cover :cool:)

Also much easier to replace the high pressure power steering hose as well, and probably the low pressure lines too. :cheers:

How about repacking your fan clutch? Oh, and swap on a 3-belt pulley to run on board air.

Replace alternator brushes? Less than $20 part and an easy swap if you access to the alternator.

Do the belts, and get OEM as they are matched sets (dual belt). Unless they are really new.

Where can I find a three belt pulley?

X2 on the fan clutch if it has not been done.

PS lines. And when you re-install the radiator be sure not to pinch the transmission lines under it.

Don't forget that there are transmission fluid lines hooked up to the bottom of the radiator.

Remove your battery box to get the fan shroud out in one piece.

Oil pump cover can be done without impact gun. Tap the bit in exactly as instructed on the MUD FAQ.

x2 on alternator brushes.

Paul you need to search 80-land on mud, I found a link a while back and posted it here for Schlegs who was asking about one, into one of those pre-Moab wrenching session threads, but I couldn't find it just now. But iirc someone is doing the 3-way pulleys and York brackets again.

mud guy I found a while back, $340+ for everything says he'll sell individual parts separate, but looks like it hasn't been updated in about a month:

Plus if you buy a supercharger it comes with a pulley, but your onboard air is only used in the cylinders! :moto::cool:

Thanks for the link! I remember someone a while back thinking about starting to make them again.
