Replaced the AC Accumilator and re-charged! Blowing ice cold, and ready for CA summer commute's and adventures. 200,000 miles and everything works like new, I love my Jeep and she never lets me down. AAA road side has been a Terrible investment, have'nt even locked myself out or ran out of gas. If you hate tow trucks buy a Jeep and take care of it!

I think the attachment would work great if stuck in rocks. You could jack your tires and place rocks under them. As far as the muffler the quality of those usually sucks, never heard a 6 cylinder gas through one. My dad has a strait pipe on his 6 cylinder gas.

On the limit straps fleet farm has 30s for $7. I'll make them work for that price.

My grandpa did somthin like this back in the 80s. I wish he wouldn't have gotten rid of it. I'm not sure how he tied the clutch throttle and shifter together. But I know it had somesort of mechanical kill switch in case the front throttle quit working with the rear. I will have to get a picture of it sometime

My gramps was a moline dealer and the back tractor is a one of one serial number x he was supposed to destroy, so he put the other one on the front and used it plowing for 10 years in the 50s before anyone made 4wd tractors. He built 5 total 3 moline 1 ih and 1 deer. The original double header is the only one left. My dad bought it locked up and in bad shape for $9000 at his estate auction. I put trans fluid in the cylinders and soaked the valves then tapped each one, finally after 5 days I got it to turn over with a pry bar, turned on the propane and it purs on all 10 cylinders.

This one is hand clutch for both tractors so gramps ran cables and you have 2 throttles and 2 hand clutches. Usually leave front tractor in 2nd gear, then it you want to go in road gear you take off with the front engine then lock in the rear engine in forth, release front clutch and away you go. It's really cool for being built 60 some years ago.

It's pretty cool what guys with some steel and a welder and some ambition can do. I mean these were the first 4x4 tractors. And now you see 4x4 tractors all the time. And they can say I didn't that before the big company's did.

I'll get a picture of the ones grandpa did. I can't remember how many he did this too. He is into doing crazy stuff with tractors. He has a 57 mta with a 6.2 gm diesel in it. He has a van with a 6.5 sitting behind the shop and is gettin a ford of some sort to put the 6.5 in. And he has I belive a John Deere 4450 that is getting a v-8 Mack motor. That about done. The frame had to be extended 1ft for that.

I love engine swaps. So satisfying when done.

Oh they are fun. The 6.2 does great in front of a 5 bottom plow in this d*** Indiana clay. Find a hard spot bogs down clutch more throttle out of clutch and your out.haha. We like to screw around an dolor with the old tractors every now and then. Last fall my cousin was plowing with the 6.2 found a real hard spot and just tried powering thru it. Tractor came in hooked from the plow and about 2ft of the ground

One of my buddy's dad is a 6.5 guy. At one point he had 13 6.5s in his shop. Just the motor no trucks. And my buddy had a really nice 6.5 that thing looked brad new. He sold it bought a 02 duramax with a bad motor and trans and built it from the ground up. He's gonna dyno it next weekend and it should be close to 800hp

That's expensive lol. Need a lot of spendy parts for that level. 500 is a cake walk but 800 is stupid expensive.
