Got the blue Jeep back in service yesterday.
My uncle dropped by to give me a hand with the motor mounts. This is actually a pretty easy job but you definitely want another set of hands.
Old ones out - really not in bad shape overall:
Driver side in:
...and passenger side:
New t-stat in and housing on; new water pump in:
I decided to modify the Haynes oe fan clutch and cut the fins off. I just didn't like the way it looked like it was gonna work like a hole saw on my new radiator:
All back together and running:
Temps look good to go:
Drove it around to get a feel for the new motor mounts - HUGE difference. The Brown Dog poly mounts give the rig a better start up and shut down and when you put your foot on the throttle the Jeep responds - no more torqueing from the worn rubber of the original mounts:
Of course - slapped on the new sticker:
........and all the while listened to our Chiefs beat the Titans making them 5 and 0 baby
..................today was a good day...........
until next time............
