dropped the front axle off at the shop to get the gears installed swapping it in next week!

Or it could turn out that it was my brother who looked at the stuff who has no mechanical skills and somehow interpreted some oil specks on the rear hatch and condensation dripping from the exhaust pipe as "coolant puking from the exhaust"
My mom has mechanical skills so I thought she was the one that looked at it.
Apparently it was my brother.
Well thats good I guess.
I am never letting my brother near my jeep.
Last time he was 'helping' he put a ugly circular scratch in my hood.
Which is why my dad does plenty of test runs on the ground. Don't want anything like what happened at Reno to happen.
Especially with how rare these things are.
And these things aren't cheap either, my dad is employed as a full time mechanic working on these, avgas is over 6 a gallon, parts are very hard and expensive to get and a quality overhaul for a Merlin engine is 150 grand and no one can do the griffon.
And the mustang eats 64 gallons a hour at cruise speed and the spit is over 80.
Not enough of the griffon spits made for people to want to work on them? I would love to touch one, they make well over 2000 horsepower right? Big v12 if I say so myself. Of course you can't expect good fuel economy with an engine that has a displacement of half my gas tank.
Of course don't they soup up those mustang merlins for racing nowadays?

Nope, the switch itself is the at fault usually, this splice merely bypasses it. You could get a toggle switch and wire it in I suppose if you really need the lock switch (or get a new switch panel of course).

Wow...is that a MK XII or later? LOVE the big Griffon powered beasts, not many of those around.

I am looking for some headrests and brackets out of the front seats? I want to do the back seat headrest mod for my kids. If they are available, and you feel like cutting the brackets out of the seats for me I will pay you a couple bucks for your time and for shipping?
I'm interested in seeing what is going on with that in the next hour considered I had that tire off about 2 hours before it happened and everything looked good .. jeep is definetly on my **** list right now.
Yeah I replaced my break 2 days before and everything was clean and looking good it hasn't done it agian
