OK - I also replaced the clutch at the same time.
Questions - Driving the jeep this summer, I hear a "Puff" coming from the engine every now and then (regular intervals - like every 5 - 10 minutes or so). If you watch a helicopter in the air, every now and then there is a puff of smoke from it. This is how I think of this puff - although it is not smoke - I can just hear it. thoughts? can be a number of things. If it only occurs every 5 ùinutes...it is not a mechanical fault.
Most likelly a very tiny air leak somewhere in the exhaust manifold, or the carb that creates a fuel drop ones and awhile at idle
OK second question - Clutch -
I replaced the clutch and throw out bearing. It shifts fine and there is no chatter nor the shakey thing befor I changed it, but there is a kind of churping (sort of) noise just as I let the clutch out, then it stops. Thoughts on what I might have done wrong? and should I be concerned? Might be a flywheel bushing issue. If the clutch works good, let it be and see if it comes worse. Most likelly the clutch temporarelly drag's when the noise occurs.?
Right now I have the radiator out. It is all plugged up I think. Temp gets to 210 on a 30 minute ride - no thermostat either. New water pump. going to the radiator shop in the AM for boiling! Always seems to be something. The radiator is first suspect, especially if the T-stat is out. You do the right thing going to a radiator shop. Let them remove the tanks and rod the core. They might suggest replacing it. If they do, dont go cheap and install a good core.

try it with a thermostat...
it regulates the flow thru the radiator and allows cooling time before the water gets reheated in the block...
without it, hot water just runs in a circle thru the system and does not get enough hang time in the rad core to cool down enough...
Interesting over the years, how many times I have run into folks who think the thermostat is a "restriction" to better cooling and they remove it. Not only does it regulate and maintain the cooling, but also allows the engine to warm up properly especially in cold weather.
