I actually wasn't even messing with that hole but the one next to it. My front end slid over a little and i didn't realize how deep that one was lol. I think i could have slowly driven out of it but i didn't want to risk it.

Now I need to buy new shocks and I don't have the cash but it rides like total crap right now. And my back tires are howling pretty good (they didn't before) so now I'm worried something is misaligned.

I just want to sell the damn thing today

What about running a teraflex rotating upper shock mount bar? If they were placed on the inner settings you might be able to keep your same shocks. The bar is really cheap right now and it's easy to install. I don't know if you're already running it or not but it's an option if you aren't.

That or he can use some MORE shock mount extensions. I made my own out of scrap I had laying around. Here's a link to my thread.

Starter is acting iffy again, had to smack it with a mallet+jump with cable. I was hoping the tear apart/clean up would give me enough time for the school to pay me back the $ they owe. Nope. They're still "processing" the payment since 2+ weeks ago.

Locking gas cap seems to have decided it doesn't want to unlock either... No luck with the Jeep Gods today I guess

Well, I THOUGHT I was going to get the engine in today. I guess they don't pay me enough to think. First thing was the bolts I used for flywheel bolts, since the clutch kit didn't come with them or pressure plate bolts, had heads that were too tall and interfered with the clutch disc. So I pulled them out, ditched the lock washers, and reinstalled with threadlocker. Disc fits OK now. Now the bolts stick too far out from the crank flange and just barely hit the block webbing. Off to the auto parts store, pick up some 1/2"-20x3/4" bolts for the flywheel and some 3/8"-16 header bolts for the pressure plate. I got home, installed the new flywheel bolts, and the last one stripped the bolt hole when I torqued it down. The engine goes back on the stand, next time I go to work I'll bring a Heli-coil home and install it on the first rain-free day. And that's all for today, a whole lot of nothing!

Yeah, stupid flywheel/flex plate bolts can be a pain, in the installs I've done, I've noticed that specific for the application have thinner heads, STS.

I just ripped mine out, did a bypass, never used the heater, and it was causing issues.
