Hey guy's! Im home as of yesterday afternoon. Srry about my GF being mad, she was really stressed not knowing where i was.
So i got there and waited till 10:30. I figured you guys couldnt make it after that, not a big deal. (Tim i was determined not to bail on you this time haha) So I headed home, the trooper wouldnt let me cross the water after Bellyaire ski area near the lumber place. So i headed up 42 to try to get home to Oneonta. Got to westkill and crossed 2 feet of water just to find the bridge out on the other side. So i turned around and hydrolocked my engine coming back through. So i waded thru the water and strapped my winch to a tree and my rear tow points strapped to a pole. Atleast if the water rose I could still use my parts. So waited in someones house for four hours until the water went down and a backhoe pulled it to dry ground. Pulled the plugs shot the water out, but i broke a plug, also looking into my throttle buddy there was a puddle in my intake manifold, so i took that off and dried it. So Monday i got a ride to hunter were i got some dri-gas and a new plug. Got back and it started with a little ether but ran rough. Should have looked at the oil dipstick, it was full of water, looked like chocolate milk. So Tuesday morning i got a ride to napa in hunter again and got an oil filter and some oil, went back changed the oil. Still ran really rough. Was about to lockn it up and hitchike home when another xj passed by. Flagged him down to compare his plug wires to mine. Wouldnt you know it i had two crossed. So i fixed that, then it ran fine.
Took me three hours to drive home but i did 75 on the highway with zero issues.
So it was an adventure, if you guys rescheduale let me know, hopefully i can make it lol. Im thinking a snorkel is higher on my list now lmao.
On anopther note the 4.10 gears for my hp30 arrive tomorow
