Just wanted to give an update b/c it has been awhile since I posted on this thread. I just passed my Series 7 and 63 FINRA exams so I have not had time to work on the Jeep. However now that those tests are out of the way I am back on it! I am in the process of replacing all the belts and the radiator now. Changing the belts have been a pain!!

Is there some sort of weather strip there to seal them from the elements?
