This is what I did..
Anyone have a drivers side replacement glass
I leaned it against the wall in my kitchen to open the door and it slid down hitting perfectly smashing the front section of glass..
I mean seriously? I spent a year finding both and getting them only to bust it on the kitchen floor

ANYONE have a **JUNK** fiberglass upper Drivers side with "Good glass?"

i painted my YJ satin black today, cleaned all the junk out then sweeped it out, removed the padding from my roll bar, cleaned the seats, put the seat covers back on, and then tomorrow the stabilizer bars are coming off.

The new clutch was installed. Unbelievably the original clutch was still there. The disc has cracks around the springs and the slave cylinder was leaking. It was probably replaced just in time. It has a new Sachs now. The exhaust system was "fixed" and the idle increased some. The engine is now breathing better. Acceleration was also improved. It pretty much finished now with most everything replaced or repaired. When it warms up the engine compartment will be detailed and the underside and wheel wells will be cleaned and painted.

I would take the window frame to a glass shop. They will be able to cut you a piece on the spot. It will probably be less expensive and faster than trying to hunt down an original replacement.

You really need to hook the vacuum back up to the top of the valve cover.

Why is that? I have the same type filter on top of my valve cover b/c when I tried to remove the valve cover to replace the gasket that hose connection broke in two. I just threw the filter on it to cover the hole basically and havenít tried to get a new connection yet. It seems to run fine. What purpose does it serve other than to vent the valve cover?

Similar to this . The fumes from the motor need to run back through the intake.

The fumes in the valve cover need to be recycled back through the intake, I was going to do the same thing you did but I was advised not to by some members on this site.

it's prety simple, just get a coupling nut, and a piece of threaded rod (or cut the head off of a bolt), and an coulple nuts (to use as jamb nuts to keep it tight). Remove the shifter knob and put a regular nut and the coupling nut in it's place. Then you put the threaded rod into the coupling nut, and put on another jamb nut. then just reinstall the shift knob.
Also, IIRC, the thread size is 3/8"x16.
