Big news!! I drove it to work today!!!!!!!
I was able to start her up last night after polishing up the drivetrain install and adding fluids to everything. She purred like a kitten, had absolutely no leaks or even moist spots from the new pan seal or rear main after 15 mins of idling!!!!! I'm so stoked that that stuff held up!! Its a great day! None of the drivetain leaked at all. I only had a couple drops of coolant form the drain port on my water neck. I'll drain some coolant and reseal that tonight.
You know what that means...? I officially have a leak free CJ!!! (for the moment anyway)
On another note, today was the first time I used the brakes since the YJ power brake conversion. The pedal pushes in almost to the floor while the jeep is off, but a half push while she is off and rolling will stop her dead in her tracks. While I was driving it, a feather of a push will start slowing her down, and a quarter push is a good stopping speed. I haven't locked up any wheels, but I have no doubts I can burn the front ones easy (front dist rear drum). So far, an excellent way to spend $120 on a CJ. I'm very pleased with the mod, and the best part is I still get great stopping power with the motor off for wheeling and such if I kill the motor up a hill.
I'm looking for a Scout II Dana 300. Drop me a line if you have any leads. Thanks
