For a little while, then you'll be stone cold!

Got the stupid plow off. If there was 1/2" of space that dick welded it. I couldn't get to half the welds yo cut them, so I resorted to a 10# sledge and a pry bar.

IWow. Welded the plow parts on!?? Ouch.

Your YJ would have come factory with an auto choke, as my 78 CJ did. They liked the auto choke because it helped emissions, and it was less hassle for the driver. I put a manual choke on mine, but me being me I would forget to turn it off until I was almost to my destination sometimes. I put the stock auto one back on, and after tweaking it a bit here and there it is working to my satisfaction.

Yours was probably the electric one. It is a simple wire run from 'key on' power to a oil pressure switch and the to the choke piece. It goes thru the oil pressure switch so that it isn't on until the engine is running. That way if you sit with the key on it isn't going to open the choke before you start it.

I've done my best to keep my YJ stock.
Ok, I do have ProComp 2.5 " lift for the 31's but stock seems to work just fine for all that I do.

I keep having friends tell me that I need to yank the vacuum engagement for the Front Wheel Drive, but nothing they have said has swayed me yet.

I give the throttle a couple of punchs before I turn the key and it seems to work.

I have enough things that DO BREAK, to fix those things that don't.

I intend to keep it mostly stock. I still have a long way to go with it.

Not so sure about the Jeeps but I know with many 4X4s the push- button front axle actuation is prone to failure and that generally is discovered only when you try to engage it when you need it, and it doesn't work. That is why it is wise to retrofit it with a manual engagement. The only 4X4 I have ever owned that had push-button 4WD was a '97 Tahoe and I always wanted to retrofit the front axle but sold it before I got around to it.

YJ's didn't even have push button. There is a shift lever like the old 4x4's but when it is shifted into 4 wheel drive it activates a vacuum motor on the long axle of the front diff. That slides a coupler on the long axle to lock it into 4 wheel drive. Yes they are prone to failure. The problem is the vacuum motor diaphragm springs a leak. Never could understand what the point was because it unlocks the long axle only. Short side stays engaged so there fore everything in the front continues to turn. XJ's used it and Dodge 1/2 tons used it. Last one I dealt with was on an XJ. Pulled the vacuum motor out ,slid the coupler over to engage the axle, cut the fork off the vacuum motor that holds the coupler in place and welded it to a fabricated steel plate and bolted it in place.
