Just Helicoiled my brake caliper bolt and went to get it aligned. I discovered a bad drag link end and a bad outer pass side tie rod end. New Moog parts on the way.

Finished the transmission install yesterday and took her for a test drive. It was going great until the motor stalled. Ends up during the 7 months it was sitting at my mom's house someone stole the gas out of it. My gas gauge is sitting at 1/8th.

I walked back home got a gas can and jumped into my xj. Picked up my neighbor and put gas in it and it fired up after a few tries. I then took it home and parked it for the night.

Took it out, put it through some paces, and broke it. How do I fix the snapping of the lf u-joint in a d44. And it took both shafts.

I renewed my registration/plate. $109... Vanity plates FTW and FTL. I guess in 10-14 business days, I'll post my new vanity plate after I get it installed on there. Hopefully it gets here before my current plate expires. I also managed to figure out what was causing my VIC, overhead, interior lights, and air bag light to go crazy. My cowl filled up with water and shorted out a relay above the fuse box in the passenger kick panel. For now, it's rigged with a plastic bag over the fuse box and surrounding relays. When it stops raining, I'm going to attempt to remove the cowl and figure out why it's not draining properly and from where the water is entering the interior.
