It would sound sick with a cam. Next winter's project might be a rebuild on the engine since I know it's over 100K, but I never thought to write down the mileage before pilfering the engine, so I don't really know the mileage.

Maybe just a little overkill. But it is me that we're talking about here.



I got the lights in the foot well operational with the driver door and the headlight switch. You don't know how much you miss them until they are gone. Currently looking for the wiring for the sound bar light and not finding it anywhere.

Well, you would never have to worry about how big you can go on tires....

I got my mini-washer fluid bottle today too. Neat little setup. Will come in handy for the highline fenders.

I'm going to buy another. Fits in a lot of tight places.

Noticed a few drips of transmission oil in the garage. It appears to be leaking from the shift lever on the transmission. Recall that I put 2 more quarts in it the other day; maybe I over filled it? I filled it to 3/4s of the "safe" range while running, hot, and in neutral. I'm going to keep an eye on it for now because I have no interest in removing the transmission valve body. I have a short list of maintenance items for the next time I drop the skid, including checking the bands on the transmission. Perhaps I'll mess with it then.

It should puke it out the breather if you overfilled it. I did this once on my old ZJ. It made a mess. Did a flush and didn't figure in the 3 or 4 qts still in the torque converter, and added its capacity in new fluid. It made a mess!

Where is the breather? I don't remember seeing it when I had the transmission out. The fluid was gathered on that little ridge where the shift arm, TV cable, etc. lives.

Jason, thanks for posting the link. I may have to get one of those.

The transmission vent on Torqueflite automatics is typically at the bottom of the bellhousing, behind the torque converter.
