Hello Marn. Long time no contact. I went back to work for somebody else and have had little time. You may remember that i fiber glass coated my gas tank. so far, it has held up well. This forum has LOTS of good advice for fixing tanks, if you have not looked yet.

Got new pickup and sender.

The pickup has a hole in the top though, so I had nother buddy weld that up for me real quick.

Since the new pickup has a nipple for a return line, I installed a return line and a new filter with a return nipple obviously.

Got everything l back into the truck. Unfortunately my gas gauge still doesn't work :-(

Gas tanks are my favorite repair... er make that favorite repair to get behind me... to do to a vehicle. Don't know why but there's always a nice, safe feeling after getting a tank sealed, with new sending units and whatnot. Might be just me... Looks good though! I counted 3 tank sealer puttied-up spots on the bottom of my Waggy's tank.

Still struggling with this brake conversion.


I need to make a new line all the way to the back. Waiting on a proportioning valve to arrive. May hit the junk yard this weekend.

Also I get to drop the tank again to replace that brake line. Oh joy

tank is down again, im going back to my OLD pickup, with no return line, because the new one leaves like 2 gallons in the tank. I put the only one in and tested it and it pulled another good gallon or so.



got the brake line to the rear pulled so i can copy it with 1/4" line. should be pretty easy to make a new one now that i have a template.

Well, a little bit of an update. Here's where we are at

Parts are on their way (brake pedal, brake pedal mounting bracket (the steering column mount thing), and the spacer for the brake booster are all on their way, out of a 78 cherokee I think.

Here's where my truck is at:


I started making new brake lines, but I used the incorrect combination of lines that I bought (bought 3, used them in the wrong order) and I kinked the 6' long one while bending it with a pair of tube bending pliers. So much for that tool. I then went to bending the tubes with my hands and that worked about 10x better. I got one tube bent up all perfect (the one that is on the rear cross-member) but I need to add maybe 8" to it, and then I need to re-bend the long one that runs along the side of the frame and stops at the prop valve. Then, I can mount up the prop valve, connect the front lines to that, and then make new lines from the MC to the PV.

I just ordered an MC/Booster combo for a 77 J20, so it's the dual diaphragm booster. That was the cheapest way to do it since I dont have a core to return.

So, maybe maybe maybe next weekend I'll have a truck that can drive and stop.

progress!

bent all the lower lines and mocked everything up. need to cut the long 1/4" line and the short 1/4" line and re-fare.





Also need to cut and switch fittings on the lower line on the front.


I'll be welding a bolt to the frame to hold the prop valve in place, but all the "out" connections to it are mocked up.



So, after making the aforementioned line cuts/flares, i just need to mount everything thats on its way in the mail, and then make the 2 lines going from the MC to the frame. Easy peasy!

Well, Last September y'all may remember I posted a lot of pics from our trip up to Ely, NV for Labor Day. I took a ton of video with a little action camera I bought specifically for the purpose of recording jeepin' adventures.

Well, I never sat down and made the video.

I finally did. 8 months later. This took a while to make, and it's my first try at doing anything like this. So, please, I welcome feedback.

It's a little long, 12 minutes, but has a good soundtrack and some nice scenery! You all know how i post the full 'story' of any of my trips, and i attempted to do the same thing with this video.

I hope you enjoy, and again, please feel free to offer feedback so I can do better next time.

P.S. As usual, youtube butchered the quality, but its not too bad.

1974+ brake pedal/steering column mount bracket thing:


1974+ J20 dual diaphragm booster, mounted to a 1974+ booster bracket (had to drill holes in firewall)


The end is in sight. Now all of the parts i needed are here and installed. just need to finish the lines.

Nice to see some solid progress happening on the Jeep! Having good brakes will be nice, I will have to tackle a brake project on mine one of these days... Watched your video as well, it made my girl and I antsy to take the Wagoneer out camping!! Just think, where you are once you get those lines done you'll never have to touch them again. The same can happen here, but we get (have) to use stainless...
