I got yelled at by county for interrupting the guy. He told me, do this and that. I already did that. He then says guy needs to get the 16 pin connector fixed, and not to send guy to county building. I told guy to go do his errands and come back. He came back and it worked. Yet again county thinks these new machines are still problem free.

Since I'm the jeep guy at my work I got stuck trying to help a customer fix his 2000 wj problems. #1 96 zj motor, #2 motor mounts been chopped and 1 bolt holding the brackets in, rubber mounts are destroyed. #3 wrong ex manifold so leaks really bad, and I can see into the head in all 6 cyl. #4 ex pipe after the cat converters is resting on the front driveline. Alot of lights on in the dash, grinds when starting, runs really rough. Any thoughts on making this work? I already told him to put correct motor in it, sell it. No go there. He kept asking me over and over the grind the converter flange so it won't rub on mount. Now he wants me to weld some motor mount brackets onto his frame. It's ghetto and poorly put together. Ahhhhhh

I'd turn them away. You Don't Have To Fix every Vehicle that comes in. To much liability with him finding things wrong down the road and your shop eating it.

It has to be a motor that was offered in the particular vehicle, Then it has to be same year or newer then vehicle. I tried to tell him to call it quits but wouldn't listen. Said it took him 13 days to do it and he is not a quitter.

Then tell him he ain't done yet. He got this far he can continue.

Tell him straight out you are a Jeep fixer - not a bloody miracle worker. You can only fix things that were originally done right due to liability.

Not for a Jeep, but does anybody know a reliable shop that knows old cars and doesn't charge an arm, leg, and firstborn? I've got a '66 SBC that's got an uncooperative idle (won't run well below 1000 rpm) and doesn't pull enough vacuum. I don't know if the two are related, but I assume so. Once I get the carb back from a rebuilder, I've got exactly one more idea and then I'm completely stumped and will probably take it somewhere.

Preferably in Weber, Davis, or SL Counties.
