I didnt. It had gaskets and it is only a matter of tracing and cutting.

Agreed ^^, like hank points out, there are grommets out there. I found some in the drawers at ACE.

I don't think inside the valve cover the gaskets are necessary. You might look at Cruisers valve cover mod for Renix in my signature.


Looks like you are in "fighting trim" there Hank Lol!


Of course I have the end of this routed to the air cleaner. The next thing I might do there is put a little "window section" just downstream of the ccv orifice. Somewhere I have a little 1 in dia, 3 inch fuel filter with a glass cylinder. I might remove the element and install that...for fun. A second stainless/w zip tie bracket would take some stress off that front grommet. VV

The book's wrong! #1 is at 5:00, viewed from the side. 153624 clockwise.
280 155 746 INJECTORS, FOR YOUR 87-90 JEEP. 4 holes are better than one, and they won't leak like originals CAN.
Not voting, then complaining is moronic. Cork it,or vote! Expecting the resources of our US to benefit it's occupants, seems reasonable to me. Go Bernie!

I just bought the grommets today for a 96.
The NAPA # is 630-1410, marked "Breather Grommet-CHRY"
The MOPAR # is 2946 079
It's the same for front and rear on mine and I'm pretty sure this will work for the front grommet on yours, but the rear will be different.
On older models, the orifice is built into the grommet, like the one 67GMC posted.
(on mine it's built into the rear elbow)

For some reason I'm remembering my 89 having a PCV valve at the rear rather then a CCV, but I could be wrong on that or maybe The US and Canadian models were different.
...and I couldn't tell you what would happen if you switched from a PCV to a CCV set-up on that motor.

A little trivia. (from the FSM for 90) The CCV orifice on the 4.0 is 2.6mm. It has a spring/plunger that limits the flow at high vacuum, but lets more pass at medium vacuum. It also blocks backfiring.

Now knowing that, I want to clean mine in case it's not closing down for high vacuum. Seems like that could gum up easy, and it wouldn't surprise me if they didn't tend to end up sticking, "Open".

On your 89, the front grommet is actually a fitting that reduces to the plastic line to the air cleaner. Only way to get it is with the vacuum harness and it's available at Napa.
