The Shaggin' Wagon looks good in that picture. I'm sure it's nice having the daily driver back. I wouldn't be able to get anything done on my jeep if I had to drive it everyday.

Um, if your buddy has any shoots coming up that require models AND the use of a lifted red TJ, or in the near future a CBR 600....I could probably accomodate that. Just sayin'

Also, how's that radiator treatin' ya? I've noticed on mine recently there may be a slow leak where the lower hose clamps on the the pipe....thinking about throwing some sort of high-temp plumbers putty or possibly roughing up the exterior of the pipes with some sandpaper to help with that.

i notice a few drips every couple days on the top of the radiator under the overflow hose...so the cap might not be sealing too well, but its minimal. I also noticed a few drops on the ground under the jeep this morning, so I'll check my hose connections. There is always some wet behind my water pump, so its likely that the pump is goin bad...maybe thats the noise I hear?

what kind of noise do you hear? water pumps whine and whistle when the seals blow out. basically the coolant gets in the bearings and it sounds like a PS pump whine just quieter.

I'm hearing a rattle noise...sounds like it could be the bearings on the pump.

Anyway, the jeep is going in storage next week, for god knows how long, so....who knows how much i can work on it anymore.

stupid HOA and their rules

it could be the pump, i haven't worked around a pump style that old in a while. have you checked the harmonic balancer? my friend's K10 rattled like all hell when his balancer was shot.

kinda, but not really. on most motors, its an inner metal pulley with a balanced metal disc pressed on over a sheet of rubber. sometimes the rubber goes bad and the disc tries to separate and it vibes like crazy. on some older motors, its bolted, not pressed on, but it varies by make. you can generally tell when they are bad because they cause nasty vibes at idle.



my method of checking for rattles is to take the belt off and wiggle each pulley one by one until you find one with some play.

Yeah, i jerked around with the HB tonight, no play in it, it wasnt wobbling either. Lol, there goes 1 more easy fix out the window.


So, New mod....not 100% for the jeep, but you get it.

Epoxy coated the garage in my new house.




All for Mr. Drippy and Ms. Leaky here...


Sad thing is....the nova will be in the garage 99% of the time, and the jeep in storage. We have 5 cars between the 3 of us living in the house...and girl's dad says the nova gets the garage 100% of the time. So...I'll only be able to bring the jeep home on some weekends and rarely a week while we sneak the nova into storage. Damn thing never gets driven or worked on...where as i wrench on the jeep daily and drive it several times a week.

OH well...cest la vie....brand new garage i'll never get to use. So close but so far.

I guess I better just pick up a 360, cause i can fit an engine stand in the garage. Might as well rebuild a new motor if I cant drive the jeep.

Yeah, I figure since it's gonna be machined and hot tanked and everything, might as well have it punched out. Perhaps the standard .030 over. I can get a master rebuild kit for about 450. After shop labor and the cost of a junk yard motor I should be in around 1200 or 1400 bucks for a brand spankin newly rebuilt motor.

I've never rebuilt anything before, and always have wanted to learn, so, why not now?

and by now i mean tax return season.

Why not just yank the motor out of ur waggy and build that up? Its a 360 right? Or just find a 440 big block and go balls to the wall. Those engine compartments are huge.
