I ran out of wire today finishing up my e-fan. I should have it all finished up tomorrow. 1 week of working on it for 30 min to 1 hr a night isn't too bad...

Got the 231 dialed in! Once we got it torn apart, it was apparent that it didn't need a full rebuild because the inside was immaculate. All the bearings and plastic inserts were in perfect condition and the chain was nice and tight. Replaced the pick up tube o ring and screen and a few seals just for a little piece of mind, put it back together and called it a day. Just need to order the oil slinger since there was no way to get it off without destroying it and the vent tube elbow, since the one that's on there is broken then ill be ready to do the swap. Kinda bummed the only place I've been able to find those things is quadratec which means I won't be able to swap cases til next weekend.

Put the pressure hose in that blew on PS pump. Tightened up the existed fittings on the return and drove it like I stole it.

Thursday I made a 150 mile trip to stay with some family, then Friday, made another 500 mile trip to see the rest of my family. Another 200-300 miles and I'll be at my final destination. Been hauling a 6'X12' Uhaul trailer, and for the most part the ol' Jeep has been running strong. It'll be time for a couple of fluid changes and tire rotation when I get where I'm going.

I finally finished my e-fan today. It took a week of working on it for short periods of time at night. The box in the pic has the fan controller for low and the 70 amp relay for the high speed. I also got a nut for where the fan clutch used to be. For anyone who's curious, it's an M30 x 1.5. I had to special order it at Fastenal.
