that loominium you talkin about is much more expensive than soldering it on my porch
Went out to the jeep today and noticed it still had a radiator full of water, so I hooked everything up, and started filling it. Radiator holds water now (somehow), but heater core took a dump. Neither my stock temp gauge, nor the aftermarket temp gauge appear to work.
4wd works. Since I had it on the jackstands, with no tires, and running, decided to throw it into gear. Everything spun. Then I remembered I had no brakes
My homefixed battery held up well sitting on the concrete, outside, through our week or so of freezing.
Smoked like crazy. Gonna do some new valve cover gaskets, and check out the valve seals.
