Yesterday, started the jeep to take my daughter to school. Put it into 1st gear and it wouldn't come out. Thankfully, a neighbor was able to give us a lift to school. Posted my issue about the BA/10, got a number of replies, a couple of correct ones, and it ended up being a misaligned shift fork in the transmission. Which next time will be a fifteen minute fix (this time, 2 hours).

Thanks, Jeepforum.com!

Putting things back together now. Hesitant to use 1st gear!

Got everything under the hood back together and stared cutting out the rusty floor. Going to be a complete pan from trans tunnel to the rocker. I wasn't going to tackle it until it warmed up a little but I was bored

I haven't done these today but over the last couple months.

In December I busted my spider gears pulling out of my driveway so I put on an 8.8. I lucked out and got one off a 94 Ford Explorer with only 27,000 mile. I know it has drums, but it still stops better than the stock D35 drums and it was only $100, complete. Fabbed my own brackets and I had to slide it back on my leafs a little, but it works great and Iv'e got a little more confidence pulling out my driveway, lol.

I recently tried to drill out my idle pick-up tubes and broke the drill bit inside, doh. I went to my local Ace and they had 3/32 brass tube that i cut to length and tapered slightly and they worked perfectly.

This week my jeep died on the highway, boy that was scary. I checked everything out and it was the dang ignition module, so I replaced that and went ahead and did the team rush upgrade also, but now it runs like crap. When I put on a new distributor gasket i tried to put it back exactly where it was, so I think I messed up the timing. So that's what I'm doing tonight.

Got a Carb kit for this weekend, the wife aint happy, but the Jeep will be.

Thinking that I just installed it incorrectly, I decided to reinstall the old one back in. Whew, it started right up. The new one must have been bad so I took it back and had them reorder me a new one, should get it tomorrow. Hopefully it will work this time.
Just wanted to finish the story out. I received the replacement distributor today and installed it. After the experience with the first one, I was very pleased to see this one work. After verifying the timing and hooking it up to manifold vacuum instead of port vacuum it runs just fine. The only issue is that my idle is now about 1000 rpm versus about 700 that I had before. Do I need to readjust the idle mixture?

Also, it was last weekend, but....

Installed my new KC Daylighters! My first ever electrical work. I'm pretty proud of my wiring. Very clean and professional and logical.

Also did my first cutting of sheetmetal to put a firewall boot in to run the wires. Man, that's discomforting that first time, ha ha.

Also, where the "mirror says objects are closer than they appear" is backwards. Strange.
