Moved into a new house. Roommate has a cool Xterra on 42s
And since I had a garage, I pulled the head and other parts around it to finally see whats going on with this. Currently replaced the head gasket, manifold gasket, new Exhaust manifold, Cleaned up the head and ports, New 195* thermostat and Housing, and all new push rods, lifters, and rocker arms. Currently waiting on parts to get in this afternoon to finish this up.
Got it all buttoned up after having problems with the exhaust manifold not fitting correctly and have bad vacuum leaks. So since it was running again with no exhaust leaks, I took it out for a little fun!
Currently getting it ready for a trip to San Diego and big bear. New ford mustang fan clutch, plugs, o2s, oil pressure sensor, and all that above. Going to be a long drive but hoping to do some good wheeling
Just got back from San Diego and Big Bear. Ran John Bull, Holcomb, Gold Mountain, and Deep Creek. Had a great time and didn't break anything! Only damage was scrapes to the sliders, oil pan skid, gts, control arms, axles, and bumpers. We didn't plan to run John Bull, as we thought my TJ wasn't built enough, but during Gold Mountain we ran into a group of Jeepers and they let us join in on John Bull. Well worth it! Great group of guys and they had some beautiful rigs
