Bought Crapsman sockets for my YJ. I will need these for removing my front axle shafts. Hopefully no breakage.

Over the last week or so; Installed new soft top, fixed broken drivers seat from obese previous owner, changed oil, plugs, dist. cap, and rotor. Gunked and high pressure washed engine. Removed rear seat and seat belts. Removed front shoulder belt and replaced with lap belts. Monday it's going in the shop for many things like fluid changes throughout. Repair the heater temperature control and emergency and 4 wheel drive indicator lights. Fix a small leak in the exhaust and check wheel bearing grease and brake pads and shoes. Since I can't find an original 4.2 air cleaner I will make my own as I did on my CJ-3A. My oil pressure sending unit will arrive Monday and if the gauge works all will be fine. If not I'll be looking for an original oil pressure gauge. Then it's install my tow bar bracket bar to the bumper. Then I will install Blazer driving lights but I can't make up my mind whether I want the small or large ones. Of course I'll put in 100 watt H-3 bulbs. Then it's wait for warmer weather and probably have it painted. I think that will be it for quite some time.

The kids and I washed it inside and out. It was really dusty from the last trip to Anza Borrego/Pinion Mountain Trail. Organized the equipment inside and drove it around the area for a bit. Eighty degrees and sunny. Gotta' love SoCal weather.
Put her back in the garage to wait for the next trip out.

Betcha' wish your girlfriend was as dirty as my Jeep!

Hang on! This is gunna' be a thrill ride of geriatric proportion!

I zip tied up some wires that were hanging off the exhaust. Good thing it didn't eat into the wire insulation

I don't think I've ever broken a Craftsman tool, and the lifetime warranty from Sears is a bonus. Snap on however..

Replace intake manifold gasket and exhaust manifold. Ummmmm, is it normal for the exhaust manifold not to have a gasket? At all? No Indian tar stuff or anything. Clean as a whistle? WTF PO? Went amazingly fast though. Only took me ~2.5 hours. No broken bolts or anything. Barely even needed the breaker bar!

Spent 9 hours struggling with replacing the hoselines on the gas tank, however.
The one damn line starts one size and finishes another. If anyone tries to replace it, my advice? Go bigger, not smaller and just clamp the ****er down!

Did this yesterday and the day before. I removed the heater core/blower assembly in preparation for replacing both the heater core and doing the blower motor mod. The existing A/C unit was somewhat of a pain in the rear to move out of the way without disconnecting the A/C lines. All of the previous posts on how to do this was very helpful though. I did have to cut a larger opening for the blower motor as mentioned in the other posts but I did prime and then paint the opening afterward. All in all, the results were well worth the effort because the volume of air being blown out of the heater or defrost ducts was many times more than it had been before. Now the draftiness of the jeep is not a concern anymore because it will definitely keep you warm. Thanks to all the JF posters who give of their time to posts these mods!

Well, flipping the shifter 180 degrees still wasn't right.


So I cut it, rotated the top around, clamped it on with a vice-grip, and put a rod and a half of 7014 on it.

Getting Closer (not really, just wishful thinking)

Headlight bezels repainted & parking lights put back in. Hood vent put on. New coul seal and windshield finally installed. Finished roll cage install.

As if it's news.... Damn I hate torx!



Still need to:
Replace shattered windshield
Tackle the hood & doors (paint)
New leaf springs
Change all fluids
Find passenger side seatbelt
Buy & install Howell FI (so we can get her smogged and actually drive her)
Paint wheels & get new tires
Replace the brakes
Sell all the stuff we have removed so we can buy more stuff we need
Ad infinitum :

Yeah it's a ménage à trois, who wouldn't like a dirty 24 year old play-friend?
The husband? You couldn't wipe the grin off his face if you tried.

This last weekend, I tore down my steering column to replace the turn signal switch and the windshield wiper switch. In the process, I messed up the tumblers in the ignition lock cylinder (don’t ask). Anyways after paying $50 for the locksmith to come out and fix it, I got it all put back together. Though I must have messed up somehow, because the steering is tighter than before and clicks when turning the wheel, as if it’s binding up. Also, the new turn signal is not working correctly. I’m going to have to tear it back down and see what I messed up…

I don't envy you. I had a real nightmare doing the same thing. Managed to get it all back together correctly after a few tries, wrong parts, and having to modify the correct parts to fit. i.e. Drilling out the hole that the pin in the wiper switch goes into. Curious how you messed up the ignition lock cylinder though??

As for the binding, did you put all of the parts back in in the correct order and orientation? I can't think what would bind unless you had something in upside down??

The inside of the column had a lot of dirt and grime and evrything was rusted. I was trying to pull the cylinder to clean the houseing. (Told you not to ask) ha ha.
I dont have a diagram or anything to go off of, I was just using my memories. I guess that didn't work (normally doesn't) so I need to find a good diagram so I can make sure I put it together correctly. I figured I messed up somewhere, I just don't know where.
