That'll do it.

Transm mounts are important, I had to replace the transmission CASE when i rebuilt my TH400 because it had a crack from ear to ear that was welded back together.

Something like that happens from a bad trans mount, or torque arm, so the thing could just torque itself to one side. Someone "tried" to fix it with a weld, but the bolts wouldnt sit flush or anything and it was still cracked on the inside.


get that crap fixed!

If it were a small issue, i'd agree 100%, but I'd like to actually figure out why its running so rich and just dumping gasoline out the tailpipe, haha

Think of it as flammable bread crums. If you get lost, just light up your trail to find your way home.

Well, it doesnt matter too much at this point....

One of the jets was stuck in the bottom of the carb, and the screwdriver notch was damaged by the shop that installed it.

I tried to be gentile, but to no avail, the jet was stuck. Easy out and let handed drill bits didnt work, now theres a mangled *** jet in there and its ruined. Probably need a new carb.

Hey guys I haven't really spent much time in the local threads since the motor in my zj went. Just thought I would let you guys know about the spectacular thunderstorm I watched last night on the Mormon wells road.

I took the road from the 95 side all the way to the 93 it was a fun time. Lots of bats and mice, and I finally saw an owl. I never took the road the whole way before and it took forever.

I'm down for wheeling fairly tame stuff in my f-150 if anybody doesn't mind wheeling with a full size truck until the jeep is running again. I just can't bring myself to tear up my truck yet.

Took the Rocky Road Gap yesterday. Its going to be my first time tackling it. Unfortunately didn't make it all the coz of Stranded Buick Mountaineer On the way. The Owner Left it, guess there's nothing much he can do. I had to turn around.

Nice pictures. I like the black grill on the black bumper. Looks slick.

LOL at the Mountaineer. You gotta wonder about people trying to take something like that over a trail like this. You've gotta hand it to how courteous the vandals that busted out the rear glass were in putting some plastic up.
