the chevy parts will work because they are exactly the same in every aspect other than the fact that they are about 3" longer, which is desirable. also, they arent in some catalog under "jeep" so they cost about 1/3rd as much.

Old steering:

It was so mucked up I couldn't get the sleeves to budge even with a 2' pipe wrench.

Got new sleeves.

All done. Ready to go under the jeep.

That looks better and nicer than any factory pics I have found yet man. Granted their photos are in lower quality but that is not lost when looking at an iconic piece of American history that is NOT hacked up n jacked up.

Just be glad you're not up in the rust belt, you would have given up the ghost after first getting into it.

So, last night this happened.





I inadvertently removed a blob of rubbery gasket material (with a jack stand) that was apparently sealing up an existing hole from a previous owner.

Great, these tanks are not available, and the poly tanks are not a "direct" fit, they require quite a bit of effort to get em to work.

Well, internets, what do we do?

Do I adhere to the "oh noes! your tank is teh old! It must have teh rusts and holeses!"

Or do we go with EVIDENCE?!

Okay, this took 18 minutes (yes, i timed myself)


Once it was on the ground i did a lil inspection.

OH MY GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!! THE HUMANITY! THERE IS RUST EVERYWHERE!



KILL IT WITH FIRE!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Okay but seriously, there was rust. (the chunks you see are remnants of an old fuel sock that is down in the bottom there, i didn't have any tweezers long enough to get it out)


Man, thats bad. How it stays held together in the parking lot is a wonder, forget about on the trails!

Alright, so about an hour and 3 cans of brake cleaner later(who needs beer when you're huffin' that stuff all night), we have a mostly clean tank.


I pumped it full of water to rinse it out, it's getting dropped at a friend's mechanic, who is a freelance type guy. He said he's repaired many a tank, and will clean it up and fix the 2 leaks (the crack and the broken weld at the vent tube) for me for 2 hours labor, at the "friends and family" rate.

So, i should have a repaired tank by Friday night. I'm dropping it off in the AM.

Then it'll take 18 minutes to bolt back up once my new sending unit arrives.
