So I reset the distributor tonight, but ran out of time to start it. So I finished up a bunch of little things. Reinstalled the radiator after installing the correct size belt, tightened up the trans hoses and radiator hoses. Finished hooking all the hoses up on the hydro assist. Removed the CPS. I will pick up one tomorrow at pick a part just to try. I need to recharge the battery since I ran it down by running the Jeep without a belt.

Picked up my Isuzu trooper seat sliders tonight. A couple pieces of tube and some 3" angle and I can whip up some seat brackets next week. I hope to knock out the cage also. I want to get it out of the garage first.

Nope, no seat mounts or inner fenders yet.

I will give a huge shout out to the builder as soon as I receive it. For now It will remain a mystery.

I need to shed some weight and add some coin to my build fund if i am ever going to finish this thing.

So nothing good has taken place this morning. Added water to the radiator, and the water pump and radiator both leak badly. Also, what I thought was a low battery is a bad starter.
