Question about 1993 Jeep Wrangler
I have a 4 cylinder 93 Jeep Wrangler. I recently changed the engine due to the main bearings gone bad. (Question #1) I changed the clutch while I had it all apart. While putting in the concentric bearing I made sure to install the hydraulic lines so they were seated correctly. I tried to bleed the lines prior to installing the engine. While doing so the bearing expanded and started leaking out the inside. I just figured it had expanded too far because the clutch was not there to stop it. I compressed it back and continued with the install. After all was installed I then again tried to bleed the system. Just when I think I have them bled the clutch pedal becomes floppy again. I also have to tell that the clutch cylinder master line popped apart (at the disconnect) on my 4th attempt to bleed. I was able to get it back together and gave up for the night.
(Question #2) While trying to start the Jeep all I was getting was one click out of the starter, so I figured maybe the battery was low so I jumped it and got nothing. I know the battery has good power so I am not thinking it is that. The starter worked fine prior to the change. Engine does not even turn over. I believe all the connections were done correctly but it seem all the pictures I took of the engine before it was taken out got deleted from my camera so I have no references. I had only 2 questionable connections which I believe were grounds, one from the battery and the other came from the wire harness under the alternator. Both I grounded to the engine. Any help would be great. Thank you,
There should be a bleeder screw on your slave cylinder for your clutch. Loosen it. Cut a piece of vacuum line hose off your old motor (unless you have some) and stick it on the bleeder screw, and the other end in a clear glass bottle, with a few inches of brake fluid in it. Then, pump your clutch until there are no more bubbles coming out of the hose. Hold the clutch down, and tighten the bleeder screw. You should have clutch.
As for your starter, i'm not sure how the safety switch works on those, but maybe it's because your clutch isn't working. The switch isn't working because of the clutch situation.
If not that, then you must have a wire on wrong, or the starter on wrong, or something is loose.
