I'm getting about the same with mine as well. While now I spend about $70-80 a tank to fill, it spreads out the fill ups between paychecks. So you always can have gas to get to work/school. Nothing worse than 1-2 days before payday and your outa cash and gas!

Possibly.. I'd have to go back and look. Do you have the plastic tank?

Edit: it does looks like 91+ only are u mpfi or carbed? I bet you could swap one out for a bigger one.

So tonight I decided to put a new exhaust manifold in to get rid of an exhaust leak I've had for quite some time now.

I went and got a felpro gasket also but was feeling lazy and decided if the factory thought it was ok without one I would at least try the easy route first sorry Sparrows!!

well I got it all bolted up and I ended up busting off the very last manifold bolt in the block... Mutha @&$%!! I started it up and listened for leaks and so far so good. Time will tell if anything develops and when that time comes ill pull both manifolds off and get that bolt out and put the gasket in.

Wish me luck

I wouldn't wait too long. You might get rust/corrosion around it making it harder to remove.

Lol no worries! I'm still going to try the gasket I think. I'll do a write up if I do.

Sucks about the bolt. Whats your plan?

You know the stupidest thing I ever did? I was replacing the exhaust header gasket on my '73 camero years and years ago. It required like a 3" extension to reach between the pipes to work one of the bolts out. I was backing the bolt out and just before the bolt came loose of the block, my wrench wedged against one of the "A" upper control arm bolts.

I tried turning it one more time just to see if it would come out but nope, the bolt still had about 1/4" of threads in the block and now the control arm bolt was totally cutting into the back of my socket wrench, on top of the lever that switches it from "in/out." Couldn't drive it back in, couldn't back it out, couldn't even turn the wrench any more lol.

Had to get out the sawzall to fix that booboo. The vibration and pressure ended up stripping the block threads so I had to retap that too.

Thought I'd share my dumb bolt story lol!

Cheers

Haha thanks for that laugh. It's always funny to picture it, even funnier is I know exactly what your talking about, I had a '77.

With that bolt, I'll tackle the full removal and extraction in a few weeks after my series of exams subside. I've got 3 coming up this next week and a 20 minute debate presentation next Monday.

Not a whole lot to update.. Got my winch wired back up finally, time to spool up the new cable I got. Threw the top back on the jeep to keep out the dirty bums and tweekers downtown and drove it to school today.

The 35s are not bad at all on the freeway. I think it really moves 65-70 mph up into the powerband nicely. Trying to make it up a long hill on the freeway is another story!!

Here she is out of her habitat. Muddy 35s lookin boss I think!

So last night I installed a new terminal for my winch hoping it solves my shorting issue, but with no luck... Now the other side is heating up... I think I'm going to have to install a distribution center for all my accessory wires... :


Today I took Ruger for his first ride in the jeep to go wash it!

He already wants to drive it

Serious faces.
