No. I have the AX15 and 4.0 in the corner of the garage just not enough time to put them in. I have the stock NP231 TC and I don't know if I need an adapter there. I'm just thinkin that if I leave it I won't need new driveshafts or anything.
Ok. So we got the pickup filter on and the tank put back in. Took a wire wheel to the rust on the bottom of the tank and on the skid plate and sprayed some green rustoleum that we had lying around. Got it all bolted up with fill neck and vent and pickup and return. Tried to start it and we think it was an air lock stopping that. Got that worked out by pouring some gas down the carb and undoing a vent on the carb. We just poured it in and cranked it over so the fuel pump would get a little more power that our crappy battery and starter could provide. After about 3 or 4 15 second bursts of our manual carburetoring, it pushed the air out of the lines and ran on it's own.
Drove it down to a big central park type park downtown and played soccer with some of my buddys. It did great. Got it out on the freeway and wrapped it up in fifth gear. It was dark before we headed home so we tested out the headlights. They worked much better than I thought.
The only problem was the backlighting for the tachometer, it didn't seem to be working. I'm pretty sure it's two bulbs and I though they were working before but I'll check on those later.
Ok. So my old man said he would help pay for some new seats because the frame for my drivers side one seems to be broken. He is afraid that it might come unglued (not literally) while it's being driven and cause something bad to happen. So what I'm getting at is what seats would you guys recommend? I'm trying to stay away from vinyl and also trying to stay within a decent price range. I won't say cheap cause I know that isn't really possible but you know what I mean. Should I keep checking craigslist and the for sale section or pony up and buy some new ones from 4wd?
Also. what are your thoughts on redoing the vacuum lines vs a home brew posilok?
ok. I think I have him convinced on some racing type ones but I'll let you know. If shipping isn't too bad I might just get like one of the front seats from you and replace that drivers till I can get a full set. What color are they? Are all three full sets?
it's cool. no worries man. I am probably only gonna get around to changing the oil tomorrow. I haven't done that since I got it so it might be about time. I also haven't put probably more than 200 miles on it since then either but it just looks dirty. haha.
Painted my fender flares yesterday. I only did the front and rear. I don't think I wanna keep the middle ones. It was originally a Sahara so it had the side steps and what not. I just wanna fab up some sliders. Does anyone have the end cap type pieces for the front? Like the +- one foot segments of the flare that go under the Jeep by the doors? I think they are pretty cheap on 4wd but if anyone wants to get rid of theirs hit me up.
hows it going man, i was just looking at your jeep and i see that you left the tub on the frame when you painted so did you paint the engine bay and other hard to reach places. Did you put it together when painted or separate peices. Sorry for so many qeustions. haha
